Re: MAME - what do you use?

I use WolfMame (built around v106) it was the only version that Twin Galaxies sanctioned for use in submitting highscores.

Although it has been a long time since i've done that and it may have changed.

Re: Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

I ran Doom on my rig...

i5 (circa 2011) coupled with a GTX 570 (same period) with 16gb of ram.

Played fine, bit slow loading some levels but other than that nothing major at all.

Really looking forward to this though, hopefully nab it in the Steam Xmas sale!

Re: From The Forum issue 166 - First Amiga Encounters

It was the 10 game pack version, also got Deluxe Video and Deluxe Music as well, I had just got a credit card (£500 limit!) and maxed it out on my miggy. It arrived (whilst I was at work) and my siblings (gawd b...

Re: The Star Wars thread

Never saw the originals at the cinema, parents promised me but never took me, still haven't forgiven them, seriously! So first time I saw it was on that Sunday in 82, ESTB and ROTJ were then seen on video years later. I did see SW in the cinema when the Special Editions came out, didn't bother about...

Re: secret santa 2016 (mods please sticky)

Thank you SS!! You're very welcome! :D I did a bit of post stalking and noticed you were a big C64 fan so I thought you would appreciate this little gem. I'm not 100% sure of the signature's other than Rob Hubbard (sorry!) I'm just glad that the system has gone to some one who will (and clearly doe...
