"I win a Falcon 030" - Part 2 !

Post by Cooper »

Hi !

The last year, a F030 was already won by ManuM for 5 euros, after a random drawing for people who supported me when i made the game "Catch me if you can".

A new challenge will soon be launched for this year, to win a 2nd Falcon !

But this time, there will be a minimal requirement :

- Having an ST/STE/F030 to launch the contest's game.
- To have this computer linked to the internet through the Sting's TCP/IP stack (through an Ethernec, Hydra, Netusbee, or a serial connexion for the hackers ;)), so if you planned to buy a device soon, perhaps it's the moment !

This time, no room for randomness, the more persistent you will be when playing the game, the more you can win !

The game will be available for a little money contribution (like the first time), for less than 10 euros for sure. (so a chance to win a Falcon for 10 euros !)

The game will soon be available, and more information will be available thanks to a dedicated website.

If you wanna enter the contest, just drop me a mail to falcon030contest[at]gmail.com (It's not a definitive choice, it's only to gauge ppl's interest).

If there is not at least 10 ppl interested, the contest will be cancelled. (but the game will be freely available, and no Falcon to win :wink: )

Good luck to everybody 8)

Hi,

Thanks to all for your emails, it seems that the contest will hopefully be planned :D

Cyprian : the game was only available for the "registered" competitors of the last contest, it was the "thank you" move for their support :)

ok I will check that,
does network speed matter? I have no eternec, therefore I connect my Atari to the net over RS, 115kbps it TT and 19200 in ST.

No need for a fast connection, only Sting protocol :)

That's nice of you to host a competition for the Falcon computer, I heard they are masterpieces. Unfortunately I am already acquiring an 1040 STE Computer and having a Falcon would make no sense to me but I do like the upgrade of a hard drive but at the expense of software compatibility. I'll pass this competition happening as I've got an STE already on my way to the door.

The Falcon 030 is a wonderful computer and very enjoyable to own, so try and get one if you can! :)

Hey Cooper, I e-mailed you months ago and never got a reply. Is this still happening? :)
