But the screen aspect is conditioned by the Amstrad resolution, correct ? I mean, you had to redraw the graphics smaller.


Going OT, sorry but want to reply to your last bit!: I have a funny story with CPCs. I got my first one after being told a million times by a french dude I used to talk with on old IRC that it was amazing, and never did much with it because I needed a new disk drive, a power supply, a display... so ended up selling it as it was.
Then it piqued my interest again, a friend gave me one he had lying around and I decided this time to modify it so I could use it (fuck those 3" disks! Fuck the need for a monitor/special power supply!). After a long time, I built a really cool one I could use a lot.

I got rid of this pimped up 6128 after realizing the only thing worth watching in it was... wait for it... Batman Forever I really hated every single game, how poor all of it was, especially the modern stuff everyone (*cough*Dennis*cough :P) told me was amazing.

But I am stubborn and with the sound of CPC fans still ringing in my head "it's a great machiiiiine", I got a GX4000 with a C4CPC. And again, I had this feeling, that everything absolutely sucked. So I got rid of that too.

With this, I am done with CPCs and will take your word for how good this is. Since the only thing I ever liked on the CPC was made by you guys, I am sure Pinball Dreams is great, but I am still always interested in hearing conversation about it even though I dislike this machine a lot
