Speaking of MAME...

Anybody know where you can download a zip file of the marquees, bezels, control panels and/or titles.

Starting to drive me a little mad.

Think he's just bitter because he can't beat the toy plane missions?

Re:

The Saturn or the BBC could never be lumped in the same group. never ever mention the saturn in the same sentence as the BBC micro unless that sentence begins with the words 'better then' or something similar to that effect "Better than the Saturn is the BBC Micro", said Yoda. Is that all right? Mu...

My g/f played Amazing Maze quite a bit... she's into that kind of thing... but more than I've played Paperboy or Ghosts n Goblins for instance?!! Madness... don't know why I've played 10 Yard Fi...

Computer Game Shop Memories - Merchandising!

As random a request as this is going to sound... any chance the collected wisdom of the Retro Gamer forum could help plug the memory gaps of a mate who's working on a new project: Does anyone have photographs of any of the major retailers (WH Smith, Boots etc) computer game displays (i.e. shelves!) ...

Glad you're enjoying your stay in the second city of the Empire! Gets a bad rep Glasgow but it's miles better than it used to be. Anyway back to my advice! I gave you a real bum steer with the footy I'm afraid (although you'll probably have gathered!). The calender was changed for TV games - origina...

Re:

Is the Barras (sp?) on a Sunday morning still going? Had some good stuff out of there when I lived up there 98-02. Yes and its a good alternative to the booty actually, Sir Clive, although it does take perseverence as there's a lot of crap and knocked off stuff to wade through. I'd still go for Blo...

Get up off your lazy arse and press the buttons on the front like everybody else.

Failing that, have you tried in the fridge? I once left my wallet in there over a weekend and cancelled all my bank/credit cards when I couldn't find it...

Not a problem...

Depends what you're after if you're an ageing rocker - then either the Solid Rock Cafe or Rufus T. Firefly in Hope Street followed by the Cathouse in Union Street (next to the afore-mentioned GS!). If you want something a little more laidback and community spirted then head into the West End and go ...

Glaswegian born and bred mate!

Rangers are playing Falkirk at Ibrox on Sunday if you're desperate for a game but if its a booty you're after...

Best bet would be the Blochairn fruit market (just north of Dennistoun - any taxi driver will give you the best directions)

Re:

Now, you see, this is what I don't understand. SirClive, you said the Plus 2 and Plus 3 machines were 'travesties', yet they were better built, more reliable and better looking than the Sinclair era machines and had a much better keyboard. I don't think you have a problem with the CPC in general, I...
