  1. At the time I played Bioshock on a widescreen CRT so it must be retro (a Philips 28", lovely sound and picture)
  2. 'Fond' memories of copying down reams of Action Replay codes into a book for my PS1 Xploder CD9000 at school lunchtimes. There was a site that had some for the PS1 demo discs so they wouldn't quit on you etc. Great for cash strapped young me! The Codemasters Dizzy helplines were still running quite late in 1998 or so as I used them once or twice!
  3. Here's an authored DVD of the 2005 event which might be of interest https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DNxG7LS8M_E17MG_KDE4332aj5th-kPX
  4. I know it's a comedy and it is funny, but I've never seen such a shambles - cracked PAL games struggling and glitching on his NTSC machine. Hardly given a chance!
  5. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DNxG7LS8M_E17MG_KDE4332aj5th-kPX This is the raw DVD file, drag the folder into media player classic and it should play correctly!
  6. Ello, that thread bought back some old capturing memories! Yes I have it, 1 DVD as mentioned in those old posts - will upload somewhere (anyone have a suggestion or preference?) Also this from the year before, Matthew Smith at CGE 2004 Here - Mega Might have one or two other bits somewhere.
  7. I particularly liked the grilling Sugar got! Great channel, been following it (and the blog that goes with it https://vhistory.wordpress.com/) for a while. Tons of Micro Lives in decent quality at last are available.
  8. I do it the old fashioned way with a PCMCIA/CF ADF transfer setup, as I like the noise of the disk drive But yeah, I'd upgrade it to 2MB with an trapdoor expansion and get a WHDload thing going with a compact flash hard drive, or mash up the case with a gotek device, as above.
  9. Thanks for info, It's softmodded via Splinter Cell - seems much harder to swap than if it was hardmodded!
  10. CEX are usually good for me when I buy a ton of PS2 and xbox stuff every so often, just shoot them an email and they usually sort something out if you have a problem, free returns too. Is there an easy way to change the HD in the xbox - mine is whining away like it's never had a day off. Every guide on the net I find makes it look easier to buy another console altogether!
  11. They should just include the hewson catalogue like the C64DTV did and 'encourage' use of the speccy 99 cd-rom, as it were. Ahem. Is it a 'real spectrum on a chip' thing or some sort of emulator?
  12. I loved Ocean's Hook, Beneath A Steel Sky and Flight Of The Amazon Queen. Somehow I never encountered any Lucasarts games until I picked up an Indy one at the end of my Amiga life and kept getting killed on a fighty bit near the start and got put off. Then Broken Sword appeared and it was amazing.
  13. I had enough trouble buying second hand disks in the late 90s let alone now - so I bought a 600 with a compact flash/pcmcia card kit to transfer adf's to floppy so i know they definitely work, unless the adf image was dodgy to start with. On the list one day for my 600 is a 1mb expansion and internal compact flash upgrade.
  14. 'The Edge' multiplayer map from Quake 2 - my secondary school had the game installed on every PC thankfully and this map was played most lunchtimes (and whenever else) in the very late 90's, before new machines came along with UT. I wandered around the empty map and remembered how busy and fun it used to be with the computer club geeks and the odd unknown from another classroom - it is now deserted and silent, quite apt really.
