Quote from: ukmarkh on 01:52, 28 January 10Good news! Richard Clayton, the chap behind Locomotive has agreed to do an interview for the upcoming book. He has also agreed to do the preface at the begining of the book. I felt it was important for either Roland Perry or Richard to do this, and lets face it without the locomotive basic, the CPC just wouldn't have been the same machine, or worse; never existed.Rest assured, a Roland Perry interview will hopefully feature, but towards the end i.e. in closing.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 12:13, 28 January 10Probably... but I'd prefer a pod cast if I were to do it. Don't like the idea of my ugly mug being seen across the internet.

Quote from: redbox on 12:26, 28 January 10That's great news and I will definitely buy a copy of the book for my coffee table.Sorry for my ignorance, but surely the ANT just became the Plus in the end? Or was the ANT planned after the Plus (that would seem a weird waste of time considering the Plus's commercial failure)...?
Quote from: arnoldemu on 16:29, 28 January 10ANT was planned before Plus I believe. It is mentioned in the PCW specification, so it seems it is a mix of CPC and PCW. Same kind of video hardware possibly but in colour.Maybe ANT 2 became the PCW16? This has roller ram like the PCW but with colours?So please ask if ANT 2 became PCW16 in some way.
Quote from: Trebmint on 17:30, 28 January 10Having developed for the pcw16 I can say that the 16 doesn't have roller ram, was just a straight bitmap over 38k's worth. Strangely it did have colour though the monitor was decidedly monchrome. There was a 320x480 mode which was 4 colour, though those colours were white, gray, gray and black. The two grays being the same, which is weird, guess its the gate array.Given the added speed of the z80 compatable in the 16, if only they had allowed a 320x240 - 16 colour mode. With 1mb ram and the added processor we could have done some pretty stuff. Oh well atleast the OS sucked bigtimeIf only symbos had existed they could of had a real nice machine.

Quote from: reidrac on 13:16, 06 May 19I'm a bit late to this, but I would say: please add £££ to the price but get a good editor so the text and the layout are as professional as possible.There are too many publications recently that let me down because I can't ignore how amateur they look and feel, and it is a shame. The CPC deserves better!
