FINALLY ;-) I got my copy and I can confirm how great its content is.
Unlike Vol.1, that one has numerous articles related to the Amstrad's 8-bit machines: programming tutorials, game reviews, Batman Group interview and finally, pages related to the making of SonicGX.

Ah thanks for the comment, I was disappointed on that aspect by vol 1...

Great cover by the way!

I don't know why there are a lot of these things coming out and they never publish the table of contents.

I guess people will buy it anyway, but I find it weird.
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse and Brick Rick for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

I got the PDF yesterday, and I've enjoyed reading it - there is lots more CPC content including a massive write up of #CPCRetroDev2019, an interview with Batman Group and an article on Sonic GX by NoRecess.
It's only a few £/€ as a PDF, so definitely worth it.
An expanding array of hardware available at www.cpcstore.co.uk (and issue 3 of CPC Fanzine!)

Yep, I bought it as well. Is not that much money, but I think it would be better if you have a ToC before buying it. I mean, it makes sense to know what are you buying! :)

(I haven't read much, can't comment; found the homemade controller a nice idea I'm tempted to try now :D)
