Title: PCWwiki
Post by: jevicac on 10:58, 27 February 20
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.  :)

Don´t know if it´s an auto translation but it works really well  :D

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.

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.

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.
Title: Re: PCWwiki
Post by: jevicac on 16:07, 29 February 20
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.

Hello,

Just tried the DEMOLER game, on Joyce.

It's WAY too fast, for me anyway, and the paddle moves between top and bottom and seems to have no control for anything between.

BUT, very impressive, very well done technically.

I'd guess it may work better on my real PCW, but it's an 'extended' image and the progs I have to write an image to disk on the PCW don't handle extended.

Thanks anyway.

Geoff

Post by: jevicac on 22:00, 27 September 20
I have tried it in the Habisoft emulator, the CP / M Box and it works for me. I stopped using Joyce a long time ago and I suppose that with the new versions it will be possible to configure the speed of it. Thanks for your comment, so we will know how it works in one and the other. Greetings

Hi there,
Just made this account to ask about the PCW range of word processors, I work for a charity and we've recently had a really good condition Amstrad PCW16 donated to us for us to sell for fundraising, doing research into the PCW16 it seems as though it isn't particularly a good model in terms of the hobby, however the keyboard, user manual and recovery floppy are all in mint condition and so I'm posting on here to ask what would the best course of action be for selling this machine? All costs would go towards the charity i'm working for and any help would be greatly appreciated from myself.
Sorry if this post is being made in the wrong thread or something also, though judging from the OP this seems at least partially related to my question.

The PcW16 is an awesome machine, I have one here. Sadly they are hard to get.
You can put one at ebay and see how they match.

A few days ago we published the new emulator for Amstrad PCW, and today a new game converted by Habisoft from CPC to PCW of the famous Knight Lore. This version when starting allows two options of monochrome and color game. If we have color activated in the new emulator, we can play with the same colors as the cpc version and if we activate the DK'Tronics sound interface, then a complete game. Hope you enjoy it.

- Elektra Glide (English Software)
- Head Coach V3
- Classic Invaders (Supernova)

Post by: GeoffB17 on 20:58, 05 May 21
Hello,

For information, I have a copy of Head Coach v3, except it's not a pukka version.

The reason for this - I was actually involved in the conversion of this game from the BBC original to the PCW, I extracted the BASIC code from a BBC disk and did the initial conversion to Mallard BASIC, Colin Adams then did the rest of the work, and I think I did some playtesting of the final version.   So I have the prog/data files for the finished product, but never on a 3" disk, but I could put it onto a 3" disk if needed.   I do however have a proper final manual/play book, which is in mint condition.

I'd guess that you'd rather 'archive' a proper version?

Geoff

Hello,

That's great.   I see you've got the same Head Coach manual/package that I've got.

As I said before, the (maybe) big problem is that I'm not sure that the files that I've got are complete, or if they are complete, that they're in the original condition.   When your copy is available, I'll get the file to compare everything.
