Question EAB "guest" appearances....

Well we recently had Dino Dini of the immensely famed Kick Off series,(& Goal), appear on this board,(Not that he's been the first one). If there was another Amiga games-programming great of the past to ever appear on this board,who would you like/wish it be & why?

yeah, if you have been famous in the Amiga scene back in the day (cracker, demo artist or game developer) TELL US NOW..

... on the original point of this thread, it would be great to know how the Bitmaps Brothers (original team), feel about our beloved machine

maybe we should invite them to do a History Post on EAB, that would be

I would like to appear Ian Bell and David Braben here on EAB Why ?? Cause I think that Elite was one of the Masterpieces in Computergames, no matter what system it runs on Other do a House on a Disk so letīs call this a Universe on a Disk

I would like to see the guys from Team 17 more around here.. (Martyn Brown showed up a couple of times)..I also would love to see Andrew Braybrook , and the guys from Factor 5. I know Julian Eggbrecht (dunno if I spelt right) is very kind to the emulation scene...

Dino Dini? WHERE?!

I talked some times with Julian Eggebrecht through email, it seems he used to visit Shmups a lot! And I am not sure about Andrew Braybrook, last I heard from him was that he was working on some company and well away from computer games, for some reason I do not know. Unlike Jeff minter, who is alive, kicking and making games for Pocket PC! go to www.llamasoft.co.uk and drop him a line if you want, he's one of the friendliest I know, a great guy!

I don't know who I'd liek to see around, or ask questions to. Perhaps the Sensi bunch. They seemed like funny guys, would be nice to have them around

Your right Retroman I too loved Elite ("Amiga version") and played it many late nights instead of going to bed with my then new wife, whoops. She soon joined in my Amiga game playing habit and we are still married to this day. She even help me finish development of the Amiga/Video Toaster version of Pyromania.

I would love it if Alister Brimble visited. He composed some great music for Amiga games.

Ah, the memories...
