Title: Apple Games Slideshow II
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 12:36, 30 June 21
French slideshow from 2018 by Alexandre.

I've already been asked on YT what program was used to convert the screens but unfortunately the info below is all I can find - any ideas?

From CPCPOWER:

"I made a small slideshow with 10 images of Apple II games, transferred directly from a PC format to a .scr CPC format.
This transfer is made quite easy because the Apple II (not the GS) generally uses 6 colors so I reduced this number to 4 to be able to display them in mode 1 on an Amstrad.
I also tested in mode 0 with the presentation image of the StarTrek game but the result is less relevant (image 9, mode 1 and image 10 mode 0). It is still an incomplete tool which requires manipulation, but it works. I don't know if this can be of help to anyone but I am passing this information on to you."
