(not so) new CPC enthusiast
« on: 11:50, 22 September 17 »
Hi everyone !

I'm Toundrik, from France. I'm glad to finally join the CPC community !

I have a special relationship with the CPC as it's been my first computer  :-* I believe I'm not the only one lol
I began with a CPC 464 Mono back in 1985 (which I still own) and then got a broken 6128 from garbage in the early 2000's (which works but is still a wip).
I just got my hand over a 6128 plus with CM14 Display, which I need to clean up.

I'm willing to start upgrading and learn more from these wondeful machines !

Welcome to the forum! The 464 was my first computer as well - and it's what I started learning to program on, but we had the color model!

Well done on getting a 6128+ machine - they're great machines!

Hi and welcome!
Do you remember the first games you had? For my part CPC 464 and GT64 as well, but a year later so many classics were released, sold with 3d grand prix, green beret..

Thanks Keith56 !

To Token -> Thanks ! I do remember the first game I had, my father bought it along with the 464 , it was Night Boosters from CobraSoft, a kind of Tron with minimalist gfx lol
After that, I mainly got games compilations , I remember playing North Star, Exolon, West Bank, Ranarama, Nebulus, Au revoir Monty, Green Beret, Ikari Warriors but I don't remember which comes first  :D

Welcome Toundrik, your story resonates with alot of people.  My first computer, well the family computer, was a cpc464 and later my dad got a 6128 too.  I think he got fed up with us hogging it.

Welcome aboard. The CPC464 was my first machine as well, but I was fortunate to get the colour monitor. It got left behind with a DD1, multiface II and about 2 boxes of 3" disks (50 in each box) in a house move some ten years back. Didn't think I'd miss them as much as I did.

The good news is, I've a 6128+ now and got most of the equipment back, just not as many disks, but enough. =D
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Thargan, I'm from Rouen ;)

I still have a bunch of tapes but I need to align back the azimuth of the drive because I "played" with it a lot back in the days lol
