OMG - why all the negativity here??  My view on antstream - I don't like it (from what I know about it), I prefer real hardware.   But its a huge service that may just get some people back into the CPC scene as they discover new games there and it gets them thinking about the CPC they loved when they were a kid.   As Xyphoe said - it's coming to real hardware too - there really is no issue here!   Some of the comments just add fuel to fire imho.  For example "TLDR" when Xyphoe has taken a lot of time to articulate his point of view  (granted, the comment following in that reply was that the person would read later).  It just comes across as rude and adds more fuel to the fire!   I personally would have expected the reply "Oh sorry - yeah, antstream is crap - I dislike it and the adds, I didn't realise it was coming out on tape and disk", "I can see the benefit of pushing it out to a large user based system like antstream, thank god we dont need to use that in the end"...

All of you are passionate about the CPC - fight with Commodore or Sinclair owners, not each other lol.

Feel free to open a new thread for the merits of lack thereof of Anstream. You have completely taken this thread off the rails, going to do some housecleaning tomorrow... This thread is about the game.


Bit unfair T.
1) we can’t really talk about the game yet as it hasn’t been released
2) You we’re just as vocal against Antstream on this thread 😊

That's a bad take dude.
Especially when the guy that runs one of those sites is involved with the coding and project....  :picard:


It’s not a bad take when the author of the game actually said it on his discord chat!

dont worry Pete, when i give the dsk files out it will only be to this and bugs community, if cpcwiki get hold of it they will have the full force of Antstreams legal dept to fend off”


Or is it okay for you guys to express an opinion but not for the wiki forum?
Lot of childish behaviour going on man.

Not like any of it matters seeing as the disk image won’t see the light it day outside of the YouTube circle jerk.  :laugh:
Wonder if CPC-power and CPCRulez will get sued by Antstream when they host it too?  :picard2:
All this because of opposing opinion. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so tragic.

IMHO this thread has turned negative, corrosive and divisive and should be abandoned.

If you're referring to me being "disingenuous" I actually take quite offence to that.

That's also a very one sided view of your Antstream experience that isn't necessarily the same for everyone else.
Also saying it hasn't improved in terms of bug fixes, controller issues and server lag is just wrong. It has done - because I've been streaming it every week for over a year now and have witnessed the (albeit slow) improvement. But improved it has. Is it perfect? No. Never said that.

The reply further above that is wrong about "everything else is a paid service".

If you're logging in for the very first time because you want to play this new game when released... it's not charging you a penny to do so. You can jump in and play for as long as you want.

I've never paid a dime to Antstream, and on my account I log in and can play as many games as I want. It only uses 'gems' for tournaments, challenges, and other special events. If you don't believe me go watch a VOD of one of my Twitch streams to see it in action and me navigating the interface eg - twitch.tv/videos/1261826429 which was last Tuesday.
They never gave me any special account, hell - they hadn't even heard of me until around August/September last year prior to Bug's Quest being released.

I am however hearing now that some people have accounts where gems are required to play games. Some don't have to. I don't know then what's going on with some people's accounts and what Antstream are doing there.

However it is clear you get given a big bunch of 'gems' then at least when you sign up. And more can be easily earned. If you're not happy about it being 100% free then you have your emulators.

I get it, that some people have a real 'issue' with a retro gaming streaming service. And I've never said it's perfect.

I would have hoped though that we would have been a bit more supportive at finally getting some Amstrad on there. And no-one is holding a gun to your head to go sign up for Antstream.

And any issues are a mute point when you'll be getting a .cdt/.dsk file shortly after, again for free, with more content.  :doh:

Applications / Re: HDCPM - boot and run CP/M plus from hard disk
« Last post by d_kef on 14:22, 16 January 22 »
Hi. I try to install HDCPM in .img files. I have followed the steps in the manual to create them with the hex editor  https://hexed.it Hi have select and format the CPMDSK01.IMG disk : But both optios  4. Boot sector information, 7. Manage boot sector  and 8 Transfer CP/M to disk  return: Error  Invalid File System Partition table information return: Warning MBR not foundAny idea? Thanks



That's strange....
The only thing I can think of is that the hard disk is somehow in a read only/write protect mode. This happened to me only when I tried to use a .ide disk image, with WinAPE, that was read only. As soon as I removed the read only setting everything worked fine.
My CP/M hard disk driver is accessing the hardware with ATA commands reading and writing sectors directly. So if it can read the disk image sectors it can also write them even if the CP/M disk image is marked as read only on the FAT level. In an emulated environment (like WinAPE) the OS  (Windows) might prevent this kind of access if the file is read only.
Did you try this also with your X-Mass? Did you see the same behaviour there?

ShaderGlass looks interesting. I wonder how well it works with scaling though.

Off topic, but I was blown away by the be MiSTer filter masks, was playing RoboCop yesterday and it looked exactly like my CRT arcade cab!
