Re: The future of retro machines ?

To me I'd say MiST is popular because sbdy did a hard job to developp it, and because at the time I hated the PC, each time I use it I know I use a tool with no soul, so there's no joy popping up from this 'thing'. You could be right. The PC is a great tool, and fun to be had, though I don't think ...

Re: The future of retro machines ?

It's funny because today I was wondering exactly like you. I'm on a very different machine, the Acorn Archimedes, and as you know it never sold well outside the U.K. I'm on my own programming in ASM in my spare time, because I wanted to set up a games company dedicated to this range of computers in ...

Why ?
I thought you deserved to know who this guy is.
Now you know : read what he keeps saying about the Atari ST TT or Falcon and how he lives for the Amiga.
Fanboyism at its best !

Re: My interview with:George Allen (Switchblade II, Zool, Venus The Flytrap etc).

If you want to know who Dlfsilver is and what he really thinks of the Atari computers, it's easy : he thinks it's crap. In fact he believes everything (ST, Falcon, Archimedes etc...) is crap when compared to the Amiga. Don't believe me ? Use Google translate from French to your mothertongue and read...

Re: Acorn Archimedes

Actually you might want to speak to Stephen Leary, who is the author of the Archie core. Yes :mrgreen: I couldn't find his email to send him a message. Thanks for your help if you can provide that. EDIT : Found his Youtube channel so issue solved, although if one of you has his email too it would b...

Re: Acorn Archimedes

MasterOfGizmo, Could you please join us on stardot forum ? We have several projects where your expertise would very much help. In particular we'd like to be able to build new 8, 12 or 16 Mbyte RAM expansions for real Archies, and the work you did to adapt MIST to 'be' an Archie means you were able t...

Re: similar demo

Hello. I'm the maker of this old, bugged demo. The spheres are from Render Bender, an Archimedes raytracer. The shiny and badly cut thingy is a ... badly cut image of a CD. :P Watch out for a sequel to this demo, for July. Same principle, better graphics, and at least one more big sprite. This time ...
