Hi all,
Been away for awhile 🧐 got sick in 2011/12 then moved for a while (was work and family related and was caring for my father - nope I wasn’t in jail ) and all my retro stuff (and pcs) were in storage.
Just getting them all out and unpacked and thought of you guys......
Hope all is well @ RCM.
Forgot how much retro stuff I had - just come across a commodore 128 fitted with some sort card device. I don’t even remember owning it,,!!!
Been a long time but would like to contribute
All the best ,

Hi all,
first my apologies for my absence from the boards.   :'( But I am still here  :-*
Just wondering how many, if any, of U R thinking of getting the PS vita soon. I have never owned a psp and was planning on getting one this year. However, with the psv hitting the streets in less than 3 weeks it seems pointless. The psv has a psp emulation mode that means emulators cam still run, and the psv is bound to be hacked soon so full speed retro emu is bound to be on the cards.
I am STILL waiting for my Pandora  so a psv looks ace atm.

hi guys,
anybody selling any 1200 parts?
will consider cards going at right price - seen some silly prices on ebay of late

GAMING . . . / Re: Modern FPS Gaming

Xbox live FPSs are not my friend atm - i cant stand the screaming kids anymore. I am sick of having my race and sexuality questioned by 12 yr olds playing an 18 rated game. I pay 40quid a year for the pleasure too :(
I do really enjoy Zombies though - 3Arcs Zombie co-op maps from World At War and BlOps are the best thing to come out of the whole glut of console based FPS games in years now - IMO of course

GAMING . . . / very good Elite clone on xbox360

Hi Guys,
found this little gem you may love if you were an elite fan
Its called Final Rift and its a very good Elite game. Its a little less open ended than Frontier and perhaps less complex in places but for 80Ms points  [less than half a pint of beer] its too good not to try.
If you liked Elite you will find something here to looooove
I cant stop playing it

Andy my apologies for not being around or coming to your gigs but its been a rough year or so and everything has taken a back seat.

hi guys,
just a note to say i is back. Had a bit of a ruff ride lately with redundancy and both me and the misses being taken in to hospital for ops. But we are all well and back on form and I have a new job in the game studies and design department of Stafford uni. and a new install of vista and home office apps. Dont know what the new job has waiting for me yet but given my background as a historian I dare say I can do some lectures on retro gaming systems. Hope everybody is well and happy? Has anybody seen Jimbob005 lately? I could do with buying him a beer.

GENERAL RETRO CHIT CHAT / Re: Open Pandora . . .

Hi guys and thanx Andy,
Cheers Duddyroar for posting that, i hadnt found that one. the Interview i want to do ( I have been away with the military for a few days so wont be getting things together till after B-Back event) is going to be more related to games preservation and the open source scene. I have a couple of articles planned (just throwing mud at the wall and seeing what sticks atm; it is not definite that anything will come this yet ) the one I am most interested in is about us retro geeks actually being games historians/archivists, and by using the panny we preserve software and roms etc. I am currently looking at a few questions in the following areas - History; technology;legality;gaming and emulation; development problems and issues;sales.
any questions you can think of will be warmly received, you guys here have far more knowledge than me regarding retro machines, so I am especially interested in questions regarding our own particular interests in the pandora and RCM issues.
I am waiting for my panny with baited breath - its just taking ages to arrive.
