Amiga magazines

How many people managed to get there name in a Amiga magazine, I remember in the last issue of Amiga format, i managed to get a cheat for UFO, oh did it bring a tear to my eye when the magazine finished, though i had been without and amiga months before, I think i had a playstation, can't remember exactly.

I did

Computer and Video Games, (C&VG), the issue with International Tennis for the C64 in... at least thats what I think it was called; you have these stick men figures with triangle heads. It was a list of all the secret rooms I'd found in Wonderboy III: The Dragon's Trap for the SMS, but the cads not only cut many of the rooms out of my list, they misprinted it and one of the rooms details was cut off mid-sentance! My small moment of fame, ruined!

I once sent in a cheat to C+VG that I figured out for myself on C64 Robocop. The ignorant barrstads just ignored my letter though.

Crap mag anyway. :-P

My name has been on the following mags:

-Pixel (Greek) including the last ever issue (my letter was used as the epilogue on the closure due to Amiga market going down).

-User (Greek) during the great ST-Amiga wars

-PC Master (Greek) for the 2nd Kick Off 2 World Cup coverage (was an organiser)

Got a game reviewed in the last issue of AP, an issue of CU and an issue of Amiga Computing. Also won the last AF reader contribution prize.

No, I remember it from the issue. [Wipes a tear for the departure of Amiga Power].

Here's the HOL DBS and link:

I had several things published on Amiga Format Coverdisks, which The Bitmap Brothers were none too pleased about!

Steve Bye? We exchanged a few letters with him after we sent him the game, and when we were trying to put together a GRAC User Disk 2. It was all very jolly until he had to sell F1 due to personal issues, a lack of money and the death of the Amiga market. Seemed a nice enough chap though. He sent us a whole £30 in royalties, and (unfortunately) I've still got the cheque here somewhere...

had my name in C+VG for the Cybernoid2 cheat (necronomicon, found that string while peeking in the A500 memory with a disassembler)

other cheats were never published

had my name in CU when they made a utilities top 100, ended at place 17 AFAIK with my disk compression tool DiskSqueeze

I've programed DeluxeChanger on Fred Fish 439. I remember that my name has appeared in some german magazines... maybe in other countries, too... Can anybody look at these old magazines and can send me a scan, please... ?

Very interesting, my tool was in a tool collection...
