Big Bug from Jeunet (Netflix) last year

Just spotted an Amstrad CPC 6128 and GT65 on "Only Fools and Horses, series 6 episode 1, Yuppy Love". A classic, both the 6128 and and "Only Fools and Horses". "Nice and cool".

Any other TV appearances?

Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 00:09, 15 October 22Got a couple of requests if anyone is interested?

1) Karnov. It doesn't appear to be in my set so not sure if it was ever done. It was 64k so surely this can be done?
A 64K-compatible crack of Karnov is now available from NVG. ;D However I had to perform a lot of compression to get it to fit on one side of a disc. hERMOL at CPCRulez also produced a 64K-compatible crack a couple of months ago, so take your choice.

I can fully understand why there have been so few attempts to crack Karnov. It was a nightmare to get it to work with 64K of RAM - lots of juggling blocks of memory around!

Quote from: Gryzor on Yesterday at 20:42Nah you got it all wrong. The correct TV buying process these days:

-meticulously research TVs and specs for a month
-wait a few months till THAT TV hits the shops, or becomes available at the correct price point
-go pick it up with your wife
-leave the store with the one your wife chooses because "it looks beautiful".

You victim! There's no chance of saving you at this point. Your mistake: step 3 "go pick it up with your wife"!! Seriously?

Quote from: Gryzor on Yesterday at 11:55Oh you mean "you can't have too much home around your TV"? :D


When you walk into a TV shop and say "I'm looking for a 75in LCD TV, but it has to have analogue inputs and SCART.", you know you still have that Retro addiction.

Guess what, your invaluable advice about the on/off switch was spot on! After what must be over 40 years of water bursts, engines and gearboxes oils, many drops from heights the flipsing thing still works! Those who said it was durable were not kidding, thanks Guys! Now to the recovery of data, I have 9 disks, only one side of one coming up with errors, read the bible and reminded how to start cpm, made a directory of whats on the 9 disks (photo'd the screen) and next session have to remember how to load up my supercalc 2 files, how to connect my dmp2000 or HP4L printers....I'm like a kid at christmas LOL! 8)

The concept was to be able to run 2-player games with gamepad or mouse on the same controller port, like the Amiga does. Expecting that some games like Lemmings, Shufflepuck Cafe, North & South will be early patched.

It was first designed for Megablasters to have no input conflict when running at 50Hz.
