Anyone have/remember "Gold Disk?" magazine type thing?

Recommended Posts

As a kid back then, the local Commodore dealer in my Canadian town had a display called "The Gold Disk" and each issue was a focus on some topic. I specifically remember one issue that I should have bought was about raytracing. The raytracer used hires monochrome mode and the image on the back of the envelope or box had a picture of dithering shaded spheres. It may have been a Canada-only thing.

 

Thanks for reading this, I hope someone has heard of it or better, has them.

 

Cheers,

FYI, I checked DLH/Bombjack's Commodore page but it doesn't seem to have any.

I remember a company called "Gold Disk" that put out Amiga software, but nothing for the C-64 or C-128. They put out such programs as Professional Page, Professional Calc, Professional Draw series, Comic Setter, and Amiga Appetizer to name a few. Is this what the OP is remembering?

I vaguely remember "Gold Disk" from my PC DOS days, but I can't recall any more about it.  Sounds like they may have distributed on multiple platforms?

I was just now looking on bombjack.org for something else, and found the Gold Disks the OP wanted. Look in the "disk image" section under Gold Disk, or;

Just click on that link. They have 16 of the gold disks available.
