Re: DeepSID and Chrome 89 / Edge 89 - FIXED

Good news all, Google have finally admitted that the issue was of their own making, and although it had been fixed in the dev (Canary) versions of Chrome 91, the public release of Chrome 91 is out. I'm delighted to report that DeepSID works correctly without issues. Updating MS Edge (Chromium) to ve...

DeepSID and Chrome 89 / Edge 89

Good afternoon folks, Just a heads up - if using Chrome 89 or Edge 89, DeepSID's playback suffers badly due to new changes put into the Chromium engine. If like me you find JCH's site very useful, he's now filed a bug in Chromium - please star at the top to increase the chance of them looking at it ...

Re: Who actually created the music?

I'm more surprised Mark Cooksey didn't get the Ghosts and Goblins drums into a fruit machine somewhere - that would be an iconic "I remember that!" moment for anyone playing said machine.

Re: Anyone know the source of this C64 mix?

Not sure who made this, but what I can identify is the following: At 3:24 is The Human Race, subtune 4, by Rob Hubbard. At 5:55 is Thalamusik (Sanxion Loader) by Rob Hubbard. At 6:41 is Noisy Pillars (tune 1), by Jeroen Tel. That may help you identify the remix if you're looking for notes on parts c...

Re: Retro Gamer Back Issues up for grabs

Hi folks, New job and all that working in London, so moved to Croydon (renting) just before Christmas last year. Hence the selling off of plenty of stuff on eBay and also selling my house in Manchester as well at the moment. In fact I found more issues so I had 95 back issues in all (from 25 to 121 ...

Re: Mark Clements

The Heatseeker v1 SID is in his folder in HVSC. If you wanted the raw disk image with it on instead, let me know.

Re: Mark Clements

Was there anything notable on there apart from the work disks of work tunes which I'd already recovered for HVSC? The Heatseeker version 1 particularly as he mentioned suited the game far better than the compromised piece he had to put in due to limited memory..

Re: Thanatos question - composer?

Just out of interest, you do have STILView enabled in your SID player, don't you? :) For those of you who don't know what I'm on about, certain SID players will allow you to view the information from the SID Tune Information List (STIL) when the SID is playing. For Sidplay2/Windows, check Settings /...
