  1. I'd never of thought of Elektra Glide being a motorbike game until I saw that title screen!
  2. Ah that's a fun way to keep track it. Just looked as all mind Multibook disks and the highest Clone Generation was 73 and the all had tghe Clone Originator of 1.
  3. No me neither until today. I only noticed because disks I images about 20 years ago weren't actually imaged correctly. So I finally got round to dealing with them today and in each case the ones with issues were RobC disks. I'm going to have to try booting them on a machine to see if they are just rotten disks or something else is at play.
  4. This is weird, but just this afternoon I was trying to image some RobC menu disks (with Music) and my 1050 (with a Happy Upgrade from AtariMax ) was get getting bad sectors. This is using the APE Pro system software. Could it be that Happy Drives have issues with these types of disks?
  5. My introduction to multi-game disks was getting Multiboot disks from my mate. The sense of nostaligia I had listening to the Antic Podcast interview this week with @Nojeee when I found out he'd written it was great. We used Multiboot for pretty much everything until September 87 when I started college in Hull and made friends with another 8Bit Atari owner who had loads of RobC menu disks.
  6. Im not defending it because Ive backed it. Im just saying Ive not the energy to spend this much time worrying about all the supposedly negative things people have pointed out. You guys carry on doing so and Ill enjoy a book that may not be perfect.
  7. Yeah maybe I have, but whatever, life is too short to read pages and pages of this stuff.
  8. Ive backed the book and am looking forward to it. This thread is very depressing reading. The level of righteousness about copyright is ironic given I would assume everyone in the community has software they dont own, me included.
  9. Racing Destruction Set was a fav. of mine.
  10. Wow, that looks amazing, great job!
  11. Yeah I agree the originals persist and will forever. What I meant was the 6502 was the CPU in the whole 8-Bit range and thus when you change that its no longer part of the 8-Bit range any longer.
  12. For me once you alter the CPU or the custom chips that made the machine what it was from a functional perspective then its no longer that machine I remember. It is instead a different machine. I guess my analogy does not work for the ST > STE or maybe the Amiga OCS > ECS > AGA but somehow that seems different to me for some reason.
  13. Actually, I'm talking complete bollocks, it's not John Ritman who worked at Imagine but John Gibson. Doh!
  14. John Ritman was at Imagine when Bandersnatch was being developed so Im sure thats a reference. Hes in the BBC documentary that shows the collapse of Imagine and is well worth a watch;
  15. To be honest that suits me fine I like the idea of this if it was a "game", but when I'm watching TV / Films I want a story as told by the writers of the piece not by me having to interact with it. The whole myth of "Bandersnatch" (and Pysclapse for that matter) are so intertwined in my memories growing up in 80s UK that I'd rather have a straight story using is as the contact point for the era. I'll probably download that "default" version, watch it and then maybe go try the interactive version later.
