Well, considering that since the announcement I have received ZERO articles..... everyone seems to be interested, but not interested enough to actually pen an article.

Sad state of affairs really

No it ain't dead.

http://gv.caub.net is the information site.

The URL for the magazine is closed at the moment and only open to the editorial staff.

We're just putting articles in the magazine, as and when we get them. I didn't bank on the UK scene being non-ex-fucking-istent.

So that's screwed up the release date which WAS going to be March 1st.

If you have any articles, email them to me.

cool, cool, cool...

this thread seemed a bit old, and there wasn't any dates on the site.. so i thought i'd check to make sure it was still an active project (thank god)

i always remember the UK scene being fairly dead... can anyone name any good demos from british groups????

the UK scene seemed to be lazy and just wait for european crackers to all the hard shit.... we brits just played games

what kinda stuff are you after....? Amiga related only etc etc...?

A good demo from a UK group? Hmmm let's start with naming a good UK group at the moment.

We haven't gota firm list of subject matter, it's more making them up as we go along. We've banned poetry so don't even think about that shite

We got a load of articles that was going into Grapevine issue 22, we'd have more but KenD is having problems converting them, he's Scottish so have to make allowances

No plans for an Amiga edition since we don't know or have any Amiga programmers.

PC and Linux editions are being worked on.

Screw Linux.

Look at Galahad's original message, he talks about helping the "amiga scene". It seems he was going to release it in Amiga format. I dunno who have gotten the project now but the decision about scrapping theAmiga, the platform where it originated, is terrible. You could contact Galahad to see if he wants to code it. Then again Pish-E related articles in an amiga mag wouldn't fit.

blergh

I'm nothing to do with Galahad's attempt at reviving it, this is a seperate attempt. if no one from the "Amiga scene" wants to volunteer to write an Amiga engine, that is hardly my fault.

It's fuck all to do with us scrapping the Amiga, it's the fact that we DON'T have Amiga programmers. I'd be more than happy for this to be released on any platform, but with noone else here to work on it, we're fucked.

It's bad enough trying to get articles from this so called "scene", so the chances of Amiga coders coming forward is next to none.

Would love to be proved wrong.

now sounds like a challenge

has anyone tried to contact the original makers of grapevine, might be worth a go!

i'd like to see Grapevine on the Amiga/PC, but i understand the constraints. i do hope, however there will be a dedicated Amiga scene in the 'vine.

Er we sort of have had a discussion with them. Shagratt and Pazza ain't exactly over the moon about it, but after eight years we've come to the conclusion of going ahead anyway.

KenD/LSD (ex-Editor) is writing articles for us, and provided us with articles that was intended for GV22 (we've included some of them for a laugh) and Echo/LSD is alright about it, he'd given us permission to use his tunes.

Some graphics artists would be nice an all.

Well that'sa fuck in the arse and a half. I would try to contact Galahad, but now that he's got a busy life as a PO, I doubt he can mbark into the project. And I know Codetapper has enough projects of his own as to get into a new one.

None of the democrews are willing to help?

Like I said, I've contacted Galahad, with a request for some of Dark's graphics which were left over from GV22. Heard nothing, so I've had to do them, along with Sarek (ex-Nerve Axis).

I contacted Virus666/Scoopex and he agreed to do some graphics, heard fuck all again.

Only crap I've had from the scene is emails like "can't wait to read it!". Hmmm don't understand the concept of having to write the fucker in the first place.

Let me put it in perspective, if each member of this board wrote ONE article a year, we'd have enough for 10 issues.
