Re: Mario Kart

i was thinking you could have a few dots on the floor to represent the track. The walls are difficult to represent. maybe they could be done like the spectrum version of doom

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

1985 is rubbish but as a kid I didnt just dismiss it. The sound and graphics created a bit of an atmosphere.

Re: Fuse on Ubuntu: Roms

ok thanks
I used to use other versions of linux

Ubuntu stops me from installing a windows program from DVD a macromedia thing

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

Does anyone know how they copied an image off the TV in the 80's? Did they simply put tracing paper directly on the TV? I think at some point you could get an amiga and print a paused video tape, but not sure when that was possible. A lot of the images could be copied from the video cover and back, ...

Re: Whatever happened to... John Minson

Okay, this isn't exactly a Moon-landings-level conspiracy theory but I remain unconvinced that HS was a real person. While it's possible she wasn't real, I'm not sure why you are so sceptical.
