Las game I played was Robocod. Nice one, I did not have it in the good old days.
Next game I'll play (probably next year ! ) is The Lost Vikings. Was one of my favorite at the time.

Ah, this thread reminds me from another one over at German Amiga Board, right Retroman ?

Last game I finished was 'Torvak the Warrior'. It's a little bit slow motion game but that's just the right thing when you start getting old

Right now I'm playing 'Nicky Boom' again Finished it years ago, but cannot remember much about it so it's like new for me again. Really cute game it is ! I like those secret bonus areas most !
When I've done it I will have a go at 'Nicky II', which I couldn't play much back then because of a read error on my disk, which prevented me to play level 2...

I'm also starting to play grafic text adventures on the C64

If any of you big-mouths out there actually finish a game, don't forget to provide a nice screen from the game ending. The last boss, animation or whatever will do.

Most of the screens in HOL are from the early stages of the games as there's not enough time to play them all through.

I can provide a screenshot for HOL from any part of the last level of The Chaos Engine if its needed. Just tell me what format and size of pic you want and where you want the pic taken from. e.g the fight with the engine itself?

journey from infocom: this would be cool also in the "games that you give up short before the end" thread, cause yesterday, in the last screen, on the ship, i run out of wind spell so the game politely told me to start again and search better in the lands from where, WEEKS AGO, i went...
Later today my brother will come my place so we'll play some Lotus or Utopia

GIF format, 640 x 256 size. Which spot you take it from is really up to you, but the final fight would be nice.

When I try to resize the pic to 640x256 it looks too stretched horizontally.

What directory do you want it in? What would you like the pic called? Are you sure its GIF you want as all the others seem to be JPEGS?

That's a spoiler information!! Are you sure a game ending screenshot is a good idea? Maybe it can be seperately viewed in a popup window when the database user clicks on the "spoiler" link.

Day is almost over and I found no time to turn on me 1200 and play Marvin's

But I just spent 4 hours mixing tracks with Traktor DJ Studio on the PC :P
It was fun

Well, I would be happy to do so, but there's 2 problems:

1) Whenever I play something, I play it on my real miggy all the time

2) I'd say about 70% of all games on my 'finished games list' I have done long before there existed any Amiga emulators, and before I knew that something like internet existed....

But getting end of game screenshots shouldn't be a problem ! Just get a trained version or use some action replay cheats and you can easily finish all the games

However, I don't like cheating as it spoils games for me, and so only games get put on my list which I finished without any trainer or action replay savegames and sort of that !

Big grin

Always find Pinball Dreams good for a quick 10-15min play. Then I remember how I suck at pinball & get fustrated & exit WINUAE!

Playing SWOS right now. Taking unfashionable Chievo to (hopefully) their fifth consecutive Serie A title, sixth Italian Cup victory and fourth European Cup in 6 seasons in charge.

For the record, we won promotion from Serie B and the Cup in the 1st season, and Serie A, Cup and UEFA Cup in 2nd.
