Re: Score attack feature

Nice to see you mention Pinball. Though they were designed to grab our cash-with average ball times of a few mins-playing later models for scores, has the reward of deep rulesets with lots of mode to explore and the goal of that elusive Wizard Mode to push for ! I'm only lucky enough to play Real pi...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Halt and Catch Fire season 2. I really like this. Only one ep. left. It's been renewed for another year, so more to come. Next I'll start Silicon Valley Season 2. I liked S1, so this should be good, too. Then it's Mr Robot, which sounds good. Quality choices ( but not heard of Mr Robot). Silicon Va...

Re: tablet owners/discussion thread

I've had a JXD (S7800b 16GB) for around 9 mths. I use it everyday for video (VLC Player w/a £1 stand from Poundland-works brilliantly), gaming (Got a 64GB Sandisk card off Amazon for £20 and some Silicone PSP Joystick caps off eBay for £3 (Protip: Bostik Gludots to secure them)). Use it mainly for M...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Watched the first couple of The Man In The High Castle. I watched the 1st episode a few months ago when it was a pilot, but delighted to see it has made it to a full season. Love the setting, might need to look into the book soon. Only downside is that its an Amazon exclusive. Although I'm sure the...

Re: JXD android tablet - anyone have one & opinions?

Seen the GPD and it looks good. But pretty happy with my JXD after 9 mths use. Use it everyday for watching vids via VLC and gaming (been using it for my Retro league fix (HOW on there - good to see you Zaphod :)). Also used it to read this entire thread using analogue stick to scroll in Chrome and ...

Hi there. Can you use .tap files on C64.EMU?

If I can use .tap I'll take the plunge :)

Re: The UK's No1 Retro Gaming Podcast: Retro Asylum

Hi Swainy, been catching up on some of your shows-as an ex-Pom I've been enjoying them alot :D Thanks. I heard about them on RGRoundUp - I've been listening to them from the start and RGRadio before and since Shane's relaunch - but you can't beat some good Brit nostalgia :) and UK Mike's just a touc...

Re: The Emulator - A New Fanzine - Updated 31/12/12

Certainly looks interesting :) I've revisited here after years away (the $20 RG pricetag down here being one). ALWAYS though - even back in the Live days - that far too little space was dedicated to emulation. And your point on Pinball (Future, Visual and Farsight's Pinball Arcade is emulating the R...
