ChinnyVision: Buggy Boy
« on: 14:15, 08 May 15 »
Buggy Boy on the C64, CPC, Spectrum and Amiga:


ChinnyVision - Ep 58 - Buggy Boy - C64, CPC, Spectrum, Amiga - YouTube


Anyone know why the sprites on the CPC version are so ugly? Is it memory saving like with Ghosts and Goblins with just 4 colours per sprite in 16 colour mode?


EDIT: This post has been edited due to a Youtube update breaking the embedded video. So you you can either click on the link or scroll down to see where Gryzor has embedded the video for me. Thanks.

Hm that is odd.  I defniitely had the correct link and it worked in preview but when it came to post it, it changed it to that devicesupport one.  Curious.

EDIT: replaced it with the url link seems fine.  Just can't seem to embed video.

I wonder if Youtube have changed something. It's failed to auto embed at the ChinnyVision website as well.

Houston we have a problem.


YouTube ends app support for older Apple TVs, smart TVs and other devices -


Forum update required I guess.

Bit worrying but I just checked my Smart TV's built-in Youtube app and my PS3's and they're still working fine for now.

Lookit all this chinnyvision on my PS3 likely cos I was testing the buggyboy video earlier. :P




Just noticed I'm reflected in the screen.  I should have put a shirt on but it's so damn warm in here today.

It appears only to be stuff uploaded this week that is impacted. I guess Youtube are phasing it with the newest videos.

Just had a bunch of your videos play on my PS3 while I was busy on the laptop doing the tedious task of creating ebay listings.  Thanks for helping pass the time.


And damn the Switchblade one just makes me even more want to till do a remake of that game (as I have been wanting to for the past 20 years or so).  I love that game so much.  It has class.

Let's see...

Ah! It works!


It doesn't auto-parse and embed the video, instead it requires you to use the YouTube button above the full editor and insert the relevant tag. I'll post detailed instructions soon...

Thanks. Hope the authors of the plugin I use on the ChinnyVision website can find a fix soon as well!

Yeah... unfortunately the plugin I was using for auto-embedding is so old it has actually been withdrawn from circulation :D

My one is only 6 months old so I'm hoping they fix it.


So back to Buggy Boy. Anyone know why the sprites are 4 colour?
