« on: 23:39, 26 March 12 »
Does anyone know if CPC Oxygen is coming back, or where I can download all the Amstrad Action issues from now megaupload is no more?

Hmm both http://www.cpcoxygen.net and cpcoxygen.fxwebdevelopment.com dont exist anymore, not good indeed.

Someone knows the email of his webmaster to know the status of the web site ?

Sorry, both websites will be back up online soon. I recently opened a computer repair business so things have been a little nuts of late. Which reminds me, I haven't been on here lately, got a bit of catching up to do.


Thanks to everyone who emailed me about the CPC Oxygen site,

Good. Well, do you repair Amstrad CPC ?

Sadly cpcoxygen.fxwebdevelopment.com has been taken over by someone else, but not http://www.cpcoxygen.net, you have to be quick with your DNS registar.

BTW, seing you are from Italy, where do you live ? I visited Italy 2 times, last time I went to Firenze (Florence). Best pasta and pizzas I ever eat was in Italy, no doubt about it.

I don't get any work for Amstrad CPCs  :'(  Just laptops, desktops, oldest being Windows 98 stuff. I'm not going to re-register cpcoxygen.fxwebdevelopment.com, instead I'm linking it all into cpcoxygen.net

I'm from Ireland, not Italy. I know, similar colours. If anyone wants to relocate me to Italy I'll accept  ;D  Better weather!

If any of those issues went missing, I think I still have a complete copy of all the magazines that were on cpcoxegen. Although it's a lot of data, probably easier to send a DVD than upload them.

Same here - don't forget that I offer the service of sending the DVDs for just the cost of them plus postage - a few euros (soon to be worthless?).


But I've been having an email exchange with a community member, maybe I'll put them online again... what say you guys?

Trip down memory lane hey? I remember being well impressed with the top right one back in the day. Do you still have the one with the waterfall where the water appears to move you can upload (I assume not as you're looking at them in a mag)? I always wondered what that looked like in real life.

Alas the CPC 6128 and those disks was sold back in the day to fund an Amiga 1200.


But Advanced OCP Art Studio allowed colour palette cycles to be defined, and the CPC had a lot of blues... and of course Amstrad Action were using AOCPAS to view the pictures, et voila.


The picture that won the entire tenner was inspired by another game which I never had but had seen in a mag - Savage IIRC. I wanted to replicate the glass sphere look, and then added a load of stuff around it.


(To be honest I thought they picked some of the weaker pictures on the disk, but they always showed a preference for the mode 0 screens)
