HOL/APoV/EAB At The Classic Gaming Expo

CAPS are going to the Classic Gaming Expo in Croydon (outer London) on the 24th & 25th July, so we thought that it's only fitting that the HOL, APoV and EAB should be there too!

http://www.cgexpo-uk.com/

The general plan is to have Amigas for playing lots of WHDLoad games as well as game boxes and a computer to access the HOL/APOV/EAB if there is Internet access. And anything else we can think of.

Is anybody planning to go to the show?

Ah stuff it, why not. It's not that far so I might as well pop along. I'll be the only gorilla there dressed as a human.

Sounds great Cody! I hope we end up near you guys. Though your stall sounds far more exciting that ours so far

Anyway, I guess I better start practicing the talk I will be doing... Ho hum...

Are you absolutely sure that you can't afford the transport?

@Cody
You can't take a 120 cm plasma screen to the show by any chance? Would be cool if you could display HOL/APoV/EAB and HD patched Amiga games on one. It surely would attract more people to your stand

I think it's a 28" screen - not massive, but large enough to make the games look good.

Hmm, I am wondering if there is any point us bring an Amiga to play games on! Especially the 14" Amstrad monitor I have! Perhaps we should just use it for dumping games...

Well Im coming to the show as well now so I can bring an Amiga A500+ with a monitor (Im 90% certain I will be coming by car)

The Amiga will be for sale too.. so if anyone wants to buy it it will be 25 for Amiga + Monitor.

I will also bring all the (original) Amiga disks I can find as there maybe something worth dumping.

Nice. I got confirmation we will be next to you guys, which probably a good thing if people want to actually play games rather than just watch them be imaged...

Actually, we had better be a bit careful doing that. We probably own most games being dumped (though obviously not good versions of them), but certain people might perceive something quite different.
