  1. +1 for the standard covers - Though occasionally the sub ones shine. Wish they'd let some digital artists loose to do some sub covers as it invariably hand drawn/painted stuff that gets a bit samey IMHO
  2. Apologies, bad form - I should know better Letting my Ridge Racer excitement get the better of me
  3. Hi there - I'm now sweet (albeit with US version) I found this 'For Dummies' guide to Duck Station that worked PERFECTLY for me...LOL https://fantasyanime.com/emuhelp/duckstation Plays OK - Even on my shitty ANCIENT Thinkpad - I'm both surprised and pleased
  4. Up for giving this a blast. Can anyone recommend (PM if neccessary) a good safe site/source of ROMs (especially interested in Ridge Racer Revolution (Europe). Many TIA
  5. Anyone else?
  6. tbh - though I could certainly do no better - I feel the KOF illustration on the subs' cover is a bit....well sub par. This seems to be the case with quite a few of them - the PoP one also springs to mind
  7. I've just started 'Missile Commander' at the weekend - Great read - Interesting illustrations/photos too
  8. Hi All I've just finished 'Jacked' by David Kushner on GTA (upto GTA IV) Was an OK read - could have been better but I enjoyed it. Anyone read his 'Masters of Doom'? Any good? I have got Tony Temple's 'Missile Commander' to go next. But wondered if anyone could throw some recommendations my way for some summer Retro Game/Tech Themed garden reading with a beer Many TIA
  9. You were close as it happens - as I found it 'Tomb Of Dracula' (see the print add I remember below) And according to the below it was by published by J K Greye Software and written by Malcolm Evans too ! (Not sure if that's correct..) https://www.retrogamer.net/retro_games80/tomb-of-dracula/ Now to dig out a .p file.... Or maybe not....as others not so kind - and appears that the J K Greye / Malcolm Evans stuff is nonsense LOL That person on the RG site also mentioned 1980 release for it when it appears to be more like 1983 - late in ZX81 terms
  10. Nope - The vampire was in the print add - and defo ZX81......though after alot of digging through Your Computer I'm thinking was it Transylvanian Tower? (99% sure it was not though. Annoying me even more now ..... GRRRRR
  11. Nah, defo not that - I very much doubt anywhere as good LOL - I'll pull up some Your Computer mags on Archive.org and have a hunt
  12. Platform: ZX81 Genre: Arcade Adventure Graphical style: Jaggedy attempt at 3D rooms with doors Not a game I played, but remember B&W ads for it it Your Computer, etc and fancy trying. Released in early eighties, the mag ads showed a jaggedy vampire's face - IIRC you explored a castle illustrated by '3D' rooms with doors in N, S, E or W doors. Sorry so vague....
  13. It's a good one They can be a bit hit & miss tbf
  14. Got my refund....well been promised it. Also an admission that I was send 220 as first sub issue when it should I been 219....Small victories LOL
  15. Thanks Darren - I managed to grab one on eBay - £7.00 though I wil be arguing for a refund off MagazinesLost&Damaged to offset that - Grrrr Can understand the frustration on the staff's side and with us readers - Just can't understand how they f*** up so much Just looked on their FB page and the complaints....especially re. DDs taken in error are concerning. Glad I pay in one off chunks...
