Great Mag and the Exclusive Sids from Tel and Co are awesome ! In The 80s nobody could spread such a large number of Discs!Too expensive or must use faked Stamps!

Actually .d81 has all the files in (filenames like "AAAAB") So I guess I can copy them file by file first to SD card filesystem then to destination floppy disk 3.5'' but that will be hell of a job - i goess.
So I started to read it form d64s - kool reading so far ;)

Great issue. Super feature about game devs :) Love the new interface.

Carrion: Oops, I forgot that we're replacing the directory containing the actual files with PETSCII art in the released D64 images. If you send me your email address in a PM, I will build some images with proper filenames and send to you.
User Comment
Submitted by Perplex on 2 October 2016
Carrion: I don't know of any method to extract a D81 image onto a real drive using 1541Ultimate, but you could mount the D64 images one by one and just copy all files over to the same 1581 disk. (Note that some files are present on all 5 disks, obviously you only need to copy those once.)
User Comment
Submitted by Carrion on 2 October 2016
haven't read it yet as I want to do it on real machine. hence the question. is it possible to copy/write D81 do real 1581 using Ultimate 1541-2? Any other idea how to do it?

Was sitting in a meeting yesterday, and halfway through I quietly opened up my Macbook Air, fired up Vice and read Vandalism News. It was a great meeting. Or so they say. Guess I have to read the minutes when they arrive.

Fabulous work guys!

Wow, the first mag-interview with Cruzer in 23 years! Insta-10/10. ;) Anyway, thanx for the really great questions. I think that's what made me want to answer them. Also totally stunning intro, and overall great work y'all. Btw, sorry for using an unsupported character, which is the reason why it says "resund bridge" instead of Øresund/Öresund.

loved the intro, nice and easily navigated menu, great graphics.

In the "Headline news" it's not mentioned that I also left F4CG, but it's not that important, I'm nobody ;)

That intro bars :O New interface is awesome and very comfy with only gripe of necessity to press article twice when we change disk (it doesn't resume automatically afterwards). Splendid issue!

Excellent and very content-filled issue. Funny to see the part of "The Market" where you used some of my old answers for Hessian which no longer have anything to do with the released game, since the whole scenario was rewritten :)
