Just been out for our ďonce a dayĒ walk and itís pretty cold out there.

A bit of house tidying this afternoon then have a mess about with my Amiga project.

Itís all very surreal.

Hello all,

Nice to see some oldskool ascii fans in the previous posts.  ;)

Well it's nice to be back on DBF again (hey Shock!) and I'm really picking up the slack on my old forums after a long hiatus. I think its the fact I'm resurrecting an Amiga A500 so I must be getting all nostalgic again.

I haven't really noticed how active this forum is nowadays but I did always prefer forums as a chat medium and they offer more personality than social media groups.

Just to add to this thread, the prod works perfectly under Vista Ultimate 64. :updance:

Just releeched this to test it - still can't go wrong with that music Clyde - wicked!

Sh*t! That's real bad news, get well soon Shocky! You have a good time at Sundown and this is what you end up with, bah. :telloff:

Pass on regards from myself and the others at OldskoolUK

I smell a compensation claim coming on....

Nice one Jim.

Just updated to AVG 8.0 last night myself and on the surface, everything seems more polished and generally shiny and nice. I let the AVG toolbar install, just to see what features it had and all seems pretty good so far.

I'm a little dubious about the Link Scanner but we'll see how it goes on that. 

AVG Free here too. The older versions seemed to struggle a little with certain viruses but the newer updates seem to be more competant. Can't knock a freebie!  ;D

Subs on II is back up, Shock!

I've just added it and currently awaiting validation. The thumbnail hasn't come too pretty but you get the idea. Let's see what the masses have to say. ;)

@All: Glad u liked it.  ;)

@Shock: Intro Inferno submissions seem to be down at mo but will try again later. I wasn't really bothered releasing it on II at first because I didn't want it 'rating' as such but only wanted to show people who'd appreciate it for what it was.

I'm curious to find out what the II users will say, so what the hell. At least no-one can slam the logo.  ;D

You may recognise the coder? :)

Merry Xmas from all at the oSuK forums.   :xmas:

Yeah, it's highly annoying but we've gotta expect these 'niggles' with a new OS. I've found that activating the resource monitor shuts it up a little quicker when it starts to throw a wobbler but this just maybe a chance thing?

Deactivating Superfetch and various other services doesn't seem to make any difference either.

Glad you found a few noticable fixes in the pre release pack, that time calculation bug gets a little tedious when moving large files over the network.

Yup, resisted the temptation to try it so far. Keep us up to speed Jim.

Out of interest, do you get much disk thrashing with your copy of Vista?

Thx for the karma, Shock!  :)

I still haven't received the HD full of retro goodness from Zetro, but I'll keep you posted when I dig out the long lost CD you were after. 

Btw, NFA and more LSD prods have been added to the archive tonight.

Cool!  :D

If you look at our PD games list, you'll see the Mr.Q's Classic Arcade collections. They were mine and they got a mention inside the back page of the final edition of CU Amiga.  ;)

Mmm.. tempting. Wonder if SP1 has ironed out the superfetch disk thrashing. ;)

Can't say I've heard of NBS PD, Jim but my regular haunts in the day were KT's PD (Essex) and Online PD (Liverpool). Next day delivery was awesome!

When you look back at how many PD libraries were actually out there, it makes you wonder what the hell they're all doing now?? Probably major pirates  ;D

I've been using Vista Ultimate for around 3 months now (on 3 PC's) and can honestly say, I haven't dropped back to XP once.

As Jim has mentioned, you're looking at 2GB's worth of RAM to get the best from Vista and a dual core CPU (or fast 64 bitter) is really needed. Vista is a serious resource hog and if you have a modest spec PC, I really wouldn't bother upgrading, it'll be hell for you! 

If you have a decent amount of machine grunt, it's a recommeded OS and the new 'toys' such as the Aeroglas feature, come in more than handy when juggling multiple windows. M$ haven't moved things around too much and everything you are used to such as services, utilities etc, can be easily found with a little bit of searching.

Is def. due a service pack tho.  ;)

Calling all retro fans!

The oSuK Amiga File Archive is now OPEN!! and enabled for public access!

The archive is still fully 'work in progress' but there's now enough online to get your teeth into.

What is it?
Well, it's a collection of oldskool Amiga based, PD titles covering rare UK scene stuffz, numerous classic euroscene titles and various other conversions from DD floppy to ADF from private disk collys.

There are currently over 1400 files online (full disk images + exes) and are either in adf/dms/exe/lha format and emulation ready.

What's online?
* Various custom-made diskmag packs
* FULL Assassins games packs
* FULL Majic Mushroom Collections: Majic Collys (1-637), Honey Packs (1-28), Majic Packs (8-112)
* Carnage - Kei Packs (1-28), Kei Collection (1-14) + other CRN stuff,
* Healthy supply of UK scene productions in group order & selected Euroscene prodz.
* Mixed PD games
* Amiga Doc Disks, util, prOn disks (fnarr!)

+ MUCH, MUCH more!

Your Input
We'd obviously like to expand the database as much as possible, so if you have any rare UK based scene prods (any group) or have additional titles to the groups we have online already. Please get in touch and we'll gladly add your stuff to the database and give relevant creds.

Where can I find it?

Let's keep the vibe alive.
