Had a fantastic time, really relaxed, got alot of C64 gaming done, and Wargames is still a great Movie, (13th time have watched it now) -

Space Harrier on the Atari blew me away, great piece of programming, and hate to admit it but th erally game on the new playstation was great.




Cheers and see you at the next one.

Well what can I say, another great RCM day, was a shame I had to leave much earlier than expected, but as some of you were aware I've had a few problems at home (like the house nearly burning down !), however there were some definate highs  ;D

Space Harrier on the 800XL, truly awesome to see what could be achieved on an 8 bit machine !

The camputers Lynx loading on multiple occaions (do not loose that tape player !)

The Dragon MMC prototype, thank you to Prime for demo'ing it, it was amazing to see it speedload a tape image in 3 to 4 seconds !!

Massive thank you to questor for sorting my Amiga CF card, so nice to be able to play Chaos Engine AGA again  :) even bigger thank you for donating to me the DragonDos, real shame I can't get to use any of my machines for a few months.

MugUK introducing me to Volfied on the arcade cab, and then promptly thrashing me at every game I played.

* Own up if you were the person I was playing Combat School against early doors.  Sorry I didn't get your name, but I did smash our scores post-WarGames  

It wasn't me but I sat down at the Mame cab later in the evening and noticed Combat School was left running. Haven't played it in ages and was so much fun to play it again so thanks for unknowingly bringing it back to my attention!



You're welcome :)

The guy in question is in one of the photos you posted on facebook; on the left with the earing.

It reminded me of  a budget title I owned on the speccy, but I forget the name.  It was okay as far as it went, and I seemed to do okay the first game, but I got progressively worse the more I played,  :D

The guy in question is one of my friends . . . he is called Mag1c1an on here . . . ;)

Cool, that clears that up.  I see he doesn't post much on here, so if he isn't lurking you can let him know I beat the Sargent, but got killed by the third terrorist  ;)
