Retro: die Bahn

Eigentlich sollte die Bahn Retrocomputing betreiben – C64 oder Atari wären genau richtig für diesen Laden. Zumindest entspräche das ihrem Zeitgeist. Denn wenn nix klappt, dann weiß auch keiner warum – so wie in den frühen Tagen des Computerentdeckens.

Rob Hubbard Kickstarter – Last Few Days!

The official Rob Hubbard Kickstarter has reached its final week. The campaign is now in stretch goal mode and heading for an exciting conclusion.

If the music of Rob Hubbard has ever made you happy then backing Project Hubbard is a great opportunity to say THANK YOU to the legendary composer!

You can pledge for the hardback book Rob Hubbard – The Official Reference, new SID and remix music, a Rob Hubbard game cartridge, and much more! The top goal is an 8bit music concert with the London Symphony Orchestra!

Dr Rob Hubbard is best known for his Commodore 64 SID work, but he also composed music for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, PC, NES, Mega Drive/Genesis, Amiga, ST, 3DO and SNES. He is also an orchestrator, and prolific live performer. Rob is fully involved with the Kickstarter and getting back into the studio!

Here’s a message from Rob:

Schneider CPC auf dem MiST FPGA Board

Das MIST-FPGA-Board (MIST steht für Amiga und Atari ST) wurde entwickelt, um klassische Computer und Konsolen nachzubauen. Während die beiden Namensgeber und auch jede Menge andere bekannte Systeme, wie zum Beispiel das Nintendo NES, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, etc. bereits nachgebaut wurden, gibt es mittlerweile auch einen Nachbau des Schneider CPC für das MIST-Board. In der neuen Version r004.7.2 wird jetzt auch das Remake des Spiels R-Type unterstützt. Wer also schon ein MIST-FPGA-Board besitzt kann sich auch mal den Schneider CPC Core anschauen. Die benötigten Dateien und Informationen finden sich auf GitHub.
