Quote from: mgman on 01:56, 26 August 16There has been a tape version of The In-Crowd. Does there exist a disk release of it?
QuoteDoes anyone have the tape release of the compilation Dynamite?

Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 14:44, 30 August 16From memory, that compilation was released in Summer 1989.According to promotional posters, it was cassette only which sold at £14.95 UK.AA Reviewed it in issue 44, giving it an overall rating of 88% with Barbarian being the star of the pack and Predator being the worst.If you're referring to 100% Dynamite (Last Ninja 2, WEC Le Mans, Afterburner and Double Dragon (64k version)), that was also cassette only, released for Christmas 1989. I used to own it. LN2, WEC and Afterburner were the same as their full priced counterparts, Double Dragon was a 64k budget job that never saw release until that year which made it to that compilation (and others). The 128k version never made it to cassette as far as I'm aware.AA reviewed this one in issue 52, giving it an overall score of 80%. LN2 and Double Dragon hadn't been reviewed before this.
Quote from: mgman on 01:30, 31 August 16I was thinking the same thing since I've so far never seen a disk version for sale or on any site. But this ad suggests it's available as disk for all 3 home computers: PictureZoom v2.1On that image it lists the disk release as 14.95 and tape one as 12.99The problem with the packaging is that the same box is used for both tape and disk releases, so you don't know which one it is by looking at it.
QuoteAbout the Dynamite compilation, I'm actually referring to this one: https://contrapedia.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/grycpcdynamite.pngPlus I found out it did come as both disk and tape. Yeah, the releases of these compilations between home computers and between countries are so varied, it's out of control.
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 17:36, 31 August 16Regarding The In Crowd. A disk version definitely didn't come out for the CPC, when AA reviewed it, there was no price listing for the disk version. Now obviously we're talking the UK Market. The advertising Ocean sent to the CPC magazines also listed cassette prices only, with no disks. Nothing concrete, but you can see a pattern forming.
Quote from: dlfrsilver on 18:34, 31 August 16The Dynamite compilation was the french edition of the "The In Crowd" compilation, with some titles changed, and it got a disk release.The fact was that in england, the CPC users mostly got 464, and in France the 6128 was the machine we prefered, hence the disk release here.Ocean did that quite often.The 100% dynamite compilation from ocean is another matter, and exists in tape and disk releases.
Quote from: zeropolis79 on 01:28, 09 September 16Same with Codemasters - the French got Quattro compilations on disc...
Quote from: pacomix on 22:55, 04 September 16I had the Dynamite compilation but I sold it some months ago already => Fotos en streamingYou can take a look there for the picture.I also have the in crowd but only cassette for Amstrad and Commodore. No disks...
Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 19:20, 09 September 16 Wonder how they were able to make money that way? The whole point of Codies keeping their stuff on tape for most of the time was to keep the cost down using less is more marketing. Tapes were also easier mass produced. Although I think I remember @MacDeath saying once that in France there was very little market for the 464, and the 6128 sold better. I may have been imagining that, but given his hatred for the 464, I'll go out on a limb and bet it was him.
Quote from: robcfg on 00:44, 12 September 16I absolutely agree, but you'll have to agree that the CPC464 is prettier than the CPC6128
