I can see Dave's graphpaper artwork though.
Oi, that's my graphpaper artwork! :)

It makes even less sense that you can see one, but not the other, as they are both on vgy.me.

To add to the confusion, I can't see R-Tape's images in that thread and they are not on vgy.me.

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

Odd.

Can you see Morkin's images of Balachor's Revenge in this thread? (He also used vgy.me.)

Re: Bob Wakelin passed away :(

Very sad news. Condolences to those close to him. He really was the iconic Spectrum artist. I doubt anyone is better placed to talk about his enormous contribution than the man himself: https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/Bob_Wakelin http://www.retrogamesmaster.co.uk/bob-wakelin/ https://motherboard.vic...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

I think the problem is with Chrome. The images work fine in Firefox and Edge. Chrome seems to be blocking vgy.me: it even blocks the URL when typed in the address field: "You cannot visit vgy.me right now because the website uses certificate pinning."

Re: Brataccas/Bandersnatch, Imagine, Denton Designs link cache

Wow, that was a post, Rothron! ;) :) I looked into Bandersnatch a while back and had clipped a load of stuff into a notepad. This thread seemed like a good reason to share it. But I don't see the link to Sinclair QL forums I'd never seen that. Thanks for sharing it. I'd wondered about the various Q...
