Hello to all users of the Amstrad PCW. We are preserving all possible material from this computer. Games, programs, software, hardware, etc. We need all possible help. For now, we leave you an updated list of games of what we have preserved. If you want to collaborate, get in touch with us. Greetings.

It's great to have a wiki in country specific languages. For example: There is an German Wiki for the CPC too. - But this was done after the Wiki in the World language English.


So the PcW wiki is nice for the Spanish users, but useless for anybody else.  :(


IMHO it would be great to establish an English PcW Wiki first. This would boost the number of people being able to contribute by an order of magnitude or so.  :)

The good is that wiki seems to be related to Habi, a spanish great PCW master...

Just check "PCW in color" and you'll see the magic (CPM/Box, Pacmania, La Abadia del Crimen and other are also famous).

The wiki has also translations in English, German and French so it's easy for a non Spanish speaking person to understand.

Spain had great game developers for CPCs and PCWs back in time, and I personally had lot of games for my PCW from Opera Soft and OMK.

¡ Muchas gracias por eso trabajo increible !

Hello again, we are slowly translating the PCWwiki, Spanish, English, German and French. We need collaborators and translators. It is a lot of work that is done. In principle we are three users who maintain the PCWwiki, among which HabiSoft, one of the best teachers and connoisseur of the PCW, author of several works for this machine. Robcfg, another great teacher of the PCW and I "Jevicac". So if you dare, it would be extraordinary despite preserving material, having it in several languages with possible extension to others. Many of our material is collected on other websites, we only ask that our site be mentioned. All our material has an identification filter. Thank you all for your collaboration and revive the PCW.

Ah, that's the English skeleton. Good start, but nearly nothing in sadly. Hope that people will focus on this and contribute.

Well, that's a trap. There are (and this is true for CPC as for the PcW) few people doing software and/or hardware. The majority is not creating anything. Now if somebody like Habi has to care in addition about the Wiki, then he lacks time doing real PcW work (hardware f.e.).
So it would be great if people who actually don't code or make hardware would care about the Wiki. Because anybody can write a text. Also there are experts out there, who could have the time to write a Wiki page, but maybe not to create a new soft/hardware project.
But sadly it's (again true for PcW and CPC world) usually the same small bunch of guys doing all the work.  ::)


I can only encourage everybody to add to the English section of the PcW wiki!  :) :) :)

Thank you for your words Gunhed, I hope you are really encouraged and contribute as much as possible to keep this computer alive. Little by little I prepare the material and upload it to the PCWwiki and translating the German with Google.

Thanks. Well, I do what I can, but usually this is software. Of course stuff like manuals (or whatever else I produce) will get put to the corresponding wikis.


EDIT: The succession of the posts seem to have been mixed up.  ???

I emailed pcwwiki@gmail.com in November, offering the originals of my PCB scans for the Multilink network card and the Silicon City autoswitch 3.5in drive, but never got an answer. The offer remains open.

Hi John, first apologize. We were very involved with the work and spent little time on PCWwiki. The email was diverted to the Amstrad website and we had no access. Robcfg has already solved it. If you can, send the mail again, we will be very grateful for your collaboration. Regards

I have maybe 100 - 150 PCW magazines in boxes in the "Amstrad cupboard(s) from Hell" - mostly 8000 Plus/PCW Plus with (I think) a few of CWTA(?) - if any are missing/not archived let me know and I'll see if I have them.

When you can verify it and let us know, we will be very grateful. The 8000 Plus and PCW Plus we have complete in the absence of poster, discs or any manual that was attached.
