Wanted / Date of very first Atari BUG club?

Anyone know the date of the actual very first meeting?
Wanted / Atari Demonstration, New Street 1980, Britannia Hotel????
« Last post by gary_m_walton on October 29, 2014, 08:54:00 PM »
Hi Everyone,
Not sure if anyone can help. Before the Atari 8-bit computers came out, Atari gave various demo's around the country. I remember going to one in New Street at a hotel. I think it was later on in the year as it was dark when I came out. I was well impressed!

Anyway, I am trying to recall the date and the actual location. It *may* have been the Britannia hotel but not 100%.

It was at the bottom of New street by the Rotunda. I recall the hotel had steps outside.

Can anyone help with the location and date of this demo please? It's been driving me mad!!!

Many thanks,

Wanted / APX GTIA demonstration diskette

Does anyone have a copy of the APX GTIA demonstration diskette?

I could swear one of the first things I ever saw on an Atari 8-bit was a digitised picture of Miss Piggy, just wondered if it was on this disk?

General Page 6 Discussion / Rest of issues - raw scans?

Hi Paul,

Just wondering if you think its worth putting up raw pdf scans for the rest of the issues - since time/motivation has been lacking to get the rest up? The whole ocr/proof-reading process is not something I'd want to get involved in, but I could scan a few issues. If we get more people involved then we can put the rest up that way. Or do you know if they're available elsewhere?

That is the basic game done, I just need to write up some instructions before publicising it.

No I've not advertised it anywhere else yet - when I do I'll put it on a different website as thomasandjames is supposed to be for my nephews.

Thanks for letting me know about Firefox as I'd only tested with Internet Explorer and Opera. The issue seemed to be the wrong kind of slashes in the path to the cover image and it now works in Firefox too.

Wow's that's great !! I love it ... have you advertised its presence anywhere else yet?

Now I need to try and get on the highscore table......

Incidentally it didn't seem to work on Firefox 4 but was OK with Internet Explorer 9

I finally got around to adding the completion screen, keeping it the same as the original. I have added a high score table which is stored on the server and that seems to be working ok. I will probaby try and jazz up the high score table and also make it a little more obvious when you are entering your name (at the moment it just shows a static underline cursor). It's slowly getting there...
