Title: Looking for the AMX Desktop (GUI) for the PCW8256 disk image
Post by: akoutsou on 10:52, 05 June 20
Hello all,

An absolute newbie to this forum. :-)
I have recently acquired an AMX mouse for my PCW8256 but I cannot find the Desktop application that came with it.
 
I have found the following https://www.amstrad.es/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=2595
 but both .zip files seem to corrupted. Even after a zip repair, I have managed to extract the disk images but when
using them on an emulator I get errors so the zip archives do carry errors :-(
I was wondering if you could provide any help on getting this disk image file or a physical copy of it.
Regards

Maybe @Habi (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1314) could help?


Or possibly this chap @P5ychoFox (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=370)

Amazing thanks for download had no idea PCW had this, just imagine if this was supplied as default with locoscript but probably a push in the RAM area.

Wow that video is a blast from the past! I still have a number of PCWs and now run a lot off stuff via Gotek drives (AMX Desktop included).
