Title: PCW Head Over Heels
Post by: chinnyhill10 on 02:13, 20 April 16
Just producing a video of Head Over Heels for a future Chinnyvision. Is anyone able to get me a 10 second video clip of Head Over Heels either running on a real PCW (by pointing a camera at the screen) or on an emulator? I've not had any joy with Joyce.


I've reviewed all the other versions on real hardware as usual but don't have a PCW, and would really like to be able to give a nod to this version especially with the high resolution display (even if the graphics are straight from the Spectrum).


Thanks.

I could try as well, but don't have any professional camera so the quality will be bad I guess.

@VincentGR (http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1053): First insert a CP/M disk to boot the system, then change to the game disk and type "dir" then load the game. The executable file ends in *.com.

Please tell me if this video I made (https://www.dropbox.com/s/mf1lb5dv7powd9f/HoH.mp4?dl=0) suits your needs.


I tried my PCW but couldn't get the game to load, then I had to battle fraps on Windows, then my router is half dead and finally, I had to use handbrake on Mac to encode and crop the video...


I guess today is not my lucky day  ;D
