Hi together,

today I was playing around with JavaCPC codes and implemented a "cpcgamereviews" browser.

It opens in a seperate window. When you click on a game, JavaCPC loads the file directly from FTP server.

Other links like "Home" or "More information on TACGR" are disabled.

You can check this feature here:

Please notice:
- Loading a game from FTP takes some time (sometimes up to 30 seconds)
- When Nich Champbell does not like useage of his website for launching CPC games, please let me know, and I will remove this feature.
- While loading a game, the CPC-screen "freezes" but will react again, when game has completely loaded
- If a ZIP contains more than 1 DSK, you can choose the right one you want to load
- A DSK is not autoloading! Use CAT and RUN"" / |CPM like with other DSK, too.
- Have fun!

Cheers,
Markus

I just changed the emulator.
You can find now CPCGamereviews-games and also more games in menu -> Extras!



Click on a website of your choice.
(Fastest website is homecomputerworld.com! It seems to contain all NVG games (Or Good CPC files?))

This is really nifty, and you pulled it off quite nicely, but I was wondering: why? :D I mean, the entire CPC archive is small enough to hold on your server...!
