@Control: Instead of using a Joystick you can use the keyboard to switch pages, just press Q+U for the next page and Q+T for the previous one ;)

It's lovely to see new diskmags being released these days. Great mag, both content and outfit-wise. Conrad's tune kicks ass, too.

The only thing I was missing is the ability to control the paging from the keyboard.

Kudos for the whole team behind the magazine!

Great reading and not too much, no loading or diskswapping, and brilliant music. That's a great package. Big multi-side diskmags often overwhelm me with TOO MUCH to read, in the worst case ending up not being read at all. But that might just be me.

Yeah nice little mag with nice music! Maybe cursor control would be nice next to joystick?! Just a thought!

WOW, very much content for a onefiler ...
Respect. And hopefully some other coders will support this mag with interviews/articles.

Well, this was a fascinating read. It's not just another diskmag, it's a really nice and new one. I like the graphics in here - very nice.

I can't wait for the second issue! Keep up the good work, guys.

First new magazine to surface in 6 years - if you don't count SNPFCT, the last one was Recollection in March 2006. Great read - such a wonderful experience to load this on the real thing.

Great work enthusi, conrad, almighty god and team! This is quite refreshing and nice to see a one-file mag back in the scene again! Much content in this production and the subject matter like what Moloch said, differs from other productions. Cheers!

Never use RR 3.8a! After loading something it sets $9EC5 to #$20, something I once learned the hard way here: Rong - Ron's Pong Preview 2.

Nice mag!

GRG: confirmed, must be a RR 3.8a bug, works with RR 3.8b ROM in VICE. Works also good with AR5/6 and TFR 0.8

Nice release and very classy tune by Conrad! Content a little bit heavy for me but for sure interesting for guys with coding knowledge I guess.

EDIT: With true drive emulation ON, and loading with retro replay 3.8a - It crashes for me when displaying page 35 (jeff's house picture). ?

using winvice

Interesting to read.

It is out! ;)

I'm half way through the articles and its certainly a nice crunchy read. Quite different than the average articles you find in some diskmags these days.

PS - The tile graphics in my interview are outdated, we've updated nearly all of the tiles since then.

So, it is finally out! :) It took quite a while to eventually put it together, but what is not delayed these days... ;) Very well done, Enthusi! Thumbs up!

Wow, its kinda big for a onefiler. And it has it all. Music, gfx, a working interface and good reading material.
The 80chars works well and i find that a really good idea.
What i would like for the next issue, is to read something about the technical specs behind it. Maybe you can write something about that and the possibilities/specifications of including gfx and music(s).
Nevertheless, i am so looking forward to the next issue! All thumbs up!

'tis a good read. Thanks for having me in the first issue, I'll try to write something for upcoming issue's. It's nice to have a very "elite" mag to read about interesting topics instead of boring old crap. :D

P.S. 1st!
