Re: What grinds your gears ?

Modern day paint. You do all the prep work to get a nice clean surface and the stuff still doesn't go on without streaks. If you had the time and money you could do a googleplex of coats and it still wouldn't look right. And once its dry you can knock it off with a mere breath.

Re: Consoles/computers with leaking batteries

Hi, I cant seem to find a list anywhere. But is there a list of consoles/home computers that have leaking batteries over time? I know the original xbox is pretty bad for them, are there anymore that this issue is common with? This could be made a useful go to thread on the subject of batteries and ...

Re: New Commodore User Who Needs Help

Have you tried without the cartridge plugged in to see if you can get a directory list in either 128 or 64 mode. LOAD"$",8:LIST in 64 mode, just press F3 in 128 mode. that will tell if any disks are readable at all.

Re: Conversion Capers feels lazy

From what I can tell having read RG from issue 1 is that the staff tend to be very pro Amstrad generally using CPC screen shots first above the other formats unless they are talking about a specific format version. To say they constantly promote the Spectrum is the opposite off what I see so If they...

Re: From the Forum - Issue 204: The Nostalgia Effect

For me it is just seeing what all the early machines can do and wondering how things would be different had other machines been more popular than the ones that were.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 203

I found the Mario article interesting enough, over all this is a great issue with plenty of true retro stuff in it. I have no interest in anything beyond the turn of the millennium as it is all the same from then on, only the earlier stuff looks more jagged around the edge due to lower resolution.

Re: Amiga musicians/C64 musicians

I actually found the Sounds Digital album on Youtube. My thing with the Amiga is that although there are some fantastic tunes, the use of samples seemed to me, to take some of the skill away. I remember playing Bionic Commando on the C64 just before I sold it to get an Amiga. Once I had the Amiga a...
