In this weeks CRG plays we take a quick look at a new Amiga game called Modsurfer. Play your favourite protracker modules in a guitar hero type setting on the Amiga.

Fast paced, frantic music module action. One of the better casual Amiga games I've seen of late and I highly recommend checking it out. Its a free game and links are in the video description.

watched most of your videos and enjoyed them, liked the charity shop run vid, maybe more in the future?

i was always useless at Guitar Hero so no chance im trying that turbo speed Modsurfer heh.

Can see your vids getting better and better, keep up the good work

Thanks for the kind words. I've been toying with another game hunt episode so yeah in the future I'm sure you'll see one.

In this weeks hardware video (apologies for it being late) we tear down and service a 1541 disk drive that was refusing to read discs. Just takes some general maintenance to get it up and running again.

I took a week off from videos but we are back and in this weekends hardware video we take a look at the CD32 joypad and try to improve it by fitting microswitches.

Can we make the CD32 joypad nice and clicky?

Just a quick side note to say that the channel has reached and now surpassed 100 subscribers which is fantastic and I am humbled by those that take the time to watch my content. Plenty more planned and not just Amiga related.

I'm setting a goal of 150 subs by the time the channel is 1 year old in 4 months which may be a bit of an ask but I'm determined to give it a good go.

Well done. The increase in the quality of your videos from the begining is very noticble. Great job with the joypad, though as a gamer when the family is asleep, i need to stick to noiseless rubber controls

great video, never touched a soldering iron in my life, so wouldn't fancy wrecking my cd32 pad lol , but it looked and sounded great when u tested it,always interesting to see what mods people think of, even better when they work well.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm continually trying to improve the quality of the videos and have a few scenery updates coming soon that should sharpen things up further.

I feel your pain as while I have the man cave and can make as much noise as I want out there I can't get out to it until everyone else is in bed!

The clickly switches really does make a difference to the feel of the pad. Its makes the inputs from the d-pad feel a lot more precise. I'm be no means an expert with the soldering iron so use my mods as entertainment rather than a how to video. I've wrecked a fair few things in my day with the soldering iron (damaged the sharp mz-700 in that video) but I'm learning as I go.

I have another couple of CD32 ideas up my sleeve and I'm going to revisit my amiga arcade stick at some point. I also want to cover stuff apart from Amiga despite them being my most popular videos. For example I have a 386 pc coming in the post that I got as a spares and repairs best offer on eBay. Going to try and fix it, clean it up a bit, maybe upgrade it and then sell it on eBay and see how it goes.

id love an old 486 machine to use for just old DOS games, but ,just dont have the space to put one , already got the main pc set up in one corner and the CD32/CRT setup in the opposite corner lol.
Besides the Mrs would kill me if i tried adding something else , (already have a Snes mini (modded) and an Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch under the TV)

All these machines with 100s of games, and not enough time to play them all
