Re: Gaming on an Apple Quadra

I thought the Quadra had the AT&T DSP3210 chip on it? Or is that another Mac?
(Yeah, I have been scouting for 3210 chips to point the AA3000+ builders in the right direction so as to include one.)

Re: Retro Gamer issue 186

Must have been a good issue as I finished it rather quickly!

And I see the letters page had someone that might agree with me on viewtopic.php?f=1&t=55256&p=1099801#p1099801

Re: Questions for Peter McConnell

Is there any room for "programmed" music in today's AAA titles? Or at least selecting between different streaming tracks?
Where is sound quality heading - any support for 24bit 96KHz or something higher than CD standard anyway?

Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

The paper in the magazine has been total shyte for the last 2 years at least. RG is using a lot of colour and if I knew nothing better then I would say it is saturating the paper, giving it more moisture than it is designed for and crumpling when drying again. I would pay more for better paper. But ...

The Last Ninja by a country mile. But you are missing Kettle AFAIK? That's one funky version!

Re: Have we ever had an article on Lost Sinclair Hardware?

I also know a lot about the Loki project as it was the ancestor of the Atari Jaguar. 8) Seems it is time for me to repeat an old article request: An ancestry article that documents released and unreleased machines by the people behind them. A hw tree so to speak (the layout designers should have a ...

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

Is there a handheld device that runs emulators well? I'd like to have a ColecoVision on the go. Might need custom controls...

Re: You Ask The Questions - Kevin Edwards

Wasn't Galaforce a rather close "tribute" to Galaga? How did that manage to fly under the radar? Did he skip the 16-bits (nee 68000s) purposefully? Oh, and BBC tape protection? Does that mean custom loaders? What was involved there? (Not the 256-times data shuffle rollover? Some clever bloke had his...

Re: Questions for Darren 'C64 Mini' Melbourne

Northway, can I be honest and say Darren didn't really understand your question about streaming a pinball game - and neither did I. Can you explain what you were getting at mate? And I shall re-ask via email! Try emulating something like Pinball Fantasies (Amiga). I have a download version for my P...
