It’s Halloween so it is a good idea to have a look at horror games for the Amstrad CPC, isn’t it? Xyphoe did this some years ago, but the video was deleted by Youtube because of the background music, so he resurrected it and record it again and here it is. Enjoy it and Happy Halloween :-)!
Your Amstrad CPC is showing a “Disc missing” error when you try to load a disc? Then normally it is time to change the drive belt of your disk drive. There are already some nice tutorials on how to change the drive belt of an Amstrad CPC, but Xyphoe recorded a video where he changes the drive belt of an Amstrad CPC 6128. So if you need to change your drive belt have a look at it.
Xyphoe celebrates the 30th birthday of the CPC 6128
After his great video for the 30th birthday Amstrad CPC 464, Xyphoe celebrates the 30th birthday of the Amstrad CPC 6128 in his latest video on Youtube. So let’s celebrate with him. Have fun:
Xyphoe, well known for his great Amstrd CPC game videos on Youtube, just uploaded a new video in which he celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Amstrad CPC 464. This one hour video features Darran Jones, Larry Bundy Jr. and Steve Benway, who altogether look retrospectively back at the history of the CPC 464, the CPC games, the competition with the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair and the actual development of course. Thanks for this great video Xyphoe!
Currently the team “Easter Egg” (Fano, TotO, iXien) is working on a remake of R-Type, because the original Amstrad CPC was only a bad Spectrum port. Now they give us a preview, which is presented by Xyphoe, so you can see how R-Type could have looked if they had more time for a real CPC port.
If you want to discuss about this video, have a look at the thread in the CPCWiki forums.
