Yeah! I've seen that too.
Tempted ..... but haven't got a lot of money at the moment!

I'm a top shelf man, myself.
I tend to go for Vodka, Rum or Whiskey, usually mixed with Coca-Cola (or Pepsi)
I also quite like a Black Russian (Tia Maria, Vodka & Coke)

However, if there's no spirits there, I'll quite happily drink lager.

I've got to admit, that's a nice machine.
I was impressed when I saw it at the RCM open day, and I was even more impressed when I was talking to you about it.
It's one cool machine!

If you want AMOS stuff, I can get hold of it for you.
I have EVERY version of AMOS in existence (originals too!!!!) so I could always make ADFs for you!

Looks like a RAM issue on mine. Wont start, just a grey screen. ROMs and all socketed chips have been swapped out.

I make my own cables, but i have use the Sinclair shop for edge connectors etc for spectrums. I have a 8 pin DIN plug sitting here to make a RGB cable for the 6128+

You could replace the 5 pin RGB socket on your CPC. Ive done it before. Its quite an easy job.
Yeah! I might try that.

If you manage to successfully make a RGB SCART for your CPC 6128+, can you make me one? (I'll pay you for it) as I have a CPC464+ fully working, but only a B&W monitor for it!

I don't know about everyone else on here, but I'm a subscriber of RG magazine :)

I have to say, it was good to see RCM in issue 57. It shows that RG are supporting all those who put on events etc.

Hi Woody.

Im also a big CPC fan. Unfortunatly, my 6128 has just died. Still have my 464 and 6128+ which also needs repairing and a PSU
There's an ebay shop (called the Sinclair Shop) and they do sell PSUs for Amstrad CPC as well as SCART cables (but unfortunately no CPC Plus - just old CPC 464, 664 and 6128) - but the PSU is the same on both original CPC and CPC Plus models.
What's up with your CPC6128? I have a CPC6128 which was 100% mint and fully working until recently ..... the Monitor connector is dodgy (and sometimes loses green or blue) so I'm looking for another CPC6128 for spares.

My name is Duncan (or as most people know me as)
I live in Northamptonshire

A few of you may already know me from Retro Gamer, Lemon Amiga, EAB, Weekend Gamer and other forums and from the Retro North, Retro Fusion and RCM Open Day events.

I've been into computing and gaming ever since I knew how to turn one on (at quite a young age) - but I like to stick to the retro stuff, especially Amstrad CPC, Commodore 16 and Amiga stuff, as these were the systems I owned as a kid/teenager/young adult.

I really enjoyed the RCM Open Day, can't wait for another one! Good job Andy & whoever else was involved.

Really liked the event. Glad to see your doing it again ..... only this time, I'll bring some stuff!

Excellent news. I'll be attending! :)

I recently acquired a CDTV and I am after a keyboard for it.
Anyone got one they want to sell/dump/give away/donate/whatever?
