RCI Easter offer (30/3/99)

R-Comp Interactive have announced a special offer that will run for the Easter period where you can buy either Ankh or Exodus for the reduced price of £19.00, or both for £35.00.

Interested in Emulators? (21/3/99)

David McEwen has made an appeal in the comp.sys.acorn.games newsgroup for anyone who would be willing to have some part in a new Emulator website to come forward. If you would be willing to write articles for or maintain a section covering:

  • Arcade emulation (MAME etc.)
  • Console emulation (NES, Sega Master System, Megadrive, SNES, Atari 2600 etc.)
  • Handheld (Gameboy, Game Gear, PC Engine GT, Lynx)
  • Computer (Ataris, BBC, MSX, Adam, C64, Vic 20, Spectrum...)
  • Emulator news
Or perhaps something else, please get in touch with David. Acorn Arcade and Acorn Gaming have both offered their support, so all we need now is a few volunteers!

ChiOS and ChiBER project put on hold (20/3/99)

Due to the withdrawal of a major sponsor, the project to bring RISC OS and an ARM processor card to PCI architecture has been halted. Jason Tribbeck is looking for new funding, but until he finds it no more work can be done. More information about the project is available at the website.

RISC OS Ltd secure license to develop and release RISC OS 4 (8/3/99)
