Probably not much help, but I use Sonar 6 Producer Edition - I highly recommend the Sonar series. However, this cost me £300 (ouch). BUT - previous versions of Sonar are freely available, and Sonar 3 & 4 can be picked up from Amazon for dirt cheap prices, also giving you the option to upgrade for a...

Hi Dennis, er, Captain Cornflake! Welcome to RG - hope your stay is a long and happy one! And, being an American, can you please explain to me exactly what a 'Twinkie' is ??!! (used to buy imported DC and Marvel comics many years ago - like, late 70's - and they would always, without fail, have full...

As others have pointed out, the 'From The Forum' section makes great reading - apparently Elite came with LOADS of hidden bonus games including Jet Set Willy, Sabre Wulf and more :wink: The highlight for me was 'The Making Of...Manic Miner' . Edge covered this in their 'Making Of...' series a few ye...

Re: Retro revival

Back to full screen screenshots. nevermind the smaller ones were nice while they lasted. Good magazine but starting to get too elitist. Trying to be too arty rather than to actually try to remind people about the games they used to play. Although thats their supposed philosophy. I blame too many br...

Has anyone tried the games in the Homebrew section yet ? 'Fishie Fishie' is indeed mad - this is genuinely the first game I have ever played that only required one finger :D Also, I appreciated the review of a 'contemporary modern' game such as Super Mario Galaxy. At the moment, being console-less, ...

Well, that is an interesting question really as I guess a lot of us here can remember when PC's did NOT come with a sound card as standard. When I had my 486sx-20 in around 1991, it was another 6 months before I got around to buying a soundcard for it. During that time, I was playing games such as W...

I'm 6'4 and 16 stone, so I am right on the edge of 'carrying it well' :wink: I cycle to work and it's a round trip of about 11 miles - but that does nothing for the upper body really. My legs and heart are in great shape! My waist and arms could do with a bit of toning. I eat loads, but mostly good ...

Didn't he do (amongst many many others) the music for 'Finders Keepers' ? For some reason, that's the one I always think of when his name is mentioned. Great tune, good rythm, thumping bass! :)

That's the plan, although from the schedule I've seen (through to December), the frequency of the case files is slowing some, to allow other series a look in. Great news about the colour, and the new series'. Not that I care about Slaine but there's sure to be other stuff I'll want. As long as Rebe...

Well, Im off to bed now. If my ip is banned again when I get back, so be it. Can't be doing with the stress and hassle of all this anymore and will join a different retro gaming site if that is the case. I am hoping though, that people will realise that in the 3 days i was here in December and the m...

But my ip was blocked will, that is my point, then I noticed several days ago that I could access the site again so I assume it has been lifted. So in that sense, I feel justified in thinking I can appear here again. As to my crime, I'm certainly not going to dredge up all that crap from a year ago ...
