Re: Renting videotapes

Didn't ET get it's UK TV debut in about 1989?? 1990! :shock: And The Jungle Book's STILL waiting for its TV premiere! Not even the Disney Channel's got round to it yet. Oddly enough they've shown Jungle Book 2 on BBC1, Its mostly Mary Poppins, Robin Hood, Bedknobs and Broomsticks and The Sword in t...

A Mad Max stye world.

In a Mad Max style future, would it be possible for civilisation to rebuild itself and look like some find of modern civilisation (I haven't forgotten about the lack of oil) instead of human civilisation being scattered into small tribes or independent kingdoms again and if so, how long would it take?

Re: Try doing this on a Commodore, Amstrad or Spectrum,

Ahhh! Ok, it was done by you. I assumed you found this oddity on youtube and posted it for some obscure reason :lol: The bit in your first post that said 'it was done by a lone, very amateur hobbyist using cheap software' made it sound like someone else did it. Extremely odd though. But well done a...

No. Had a couple of cans of Kronenbourg 1664 and experimenting with video effects.
I haven't done the full version yet and the bit I posted was just experimental so the cabbage might not be in the final edit.

Re: Try doing this on a Commodore, Amstrad or Spectrum,

B (sorry). It was done in the same way some games were done back in the '80s, a hobbyist left alone with a computer and experimenting. I did that myself but the trouble is, the morons at Google headquarters decided to mess about with Google so I can't get back into my original account, the idiotic b...

Re: Try doing this on a Commodore, Amstrad or Spectrum,

I reckon you could replicate that pretty close on a C64, and near identical on a Commodore Amiga. Jeff never did any significant music afaik, but he has knocked out a few lightsyths. Is your username meant to be ironic? Yeah, know it's bollocks but It was dead easy to do. All I did was combine a fe...

Re: Try doing this on a Commodore, Amstrad or Spectrum,

Didn't Jeff Minter do something similar for the commie 64? Can't remember the name of the title but he did the same sort of thing. But what I did wasn't from a game. BTW I'm not a troll, PBU, attention seeker, spammer or WUM and any I do is purely accidental and not intended. All I did was put a few...
