UK Tournament 2018

Yes, I know we still have 4 months left in 2017, and I know that we still have the World Cup this year, but I thought I'd start a thread nice and early, to see if anyone fancies another trip up north for a tournament in May 2018. Yes, I am talking about Manchester... again! Obviously, if anyone else...

Re: Gauging interest for a Burton kick about

doesn't seem much interest in it really, shame, but ya know, people have things to do i guess... weirdos... like there's anything better than kick off to do! :D Nahh, I'm not having that... the "better things to do than Kick Off" bit. Seriously, kids, Burton is calling out for a Kick Off ...

Re: About using pc's and emulation for tournaments

I've also dug out my Windows / Android tablet, and will install the latest Amiga Forever on that tonight. It's got an Atom processor, with 2GB of RAM and I'm fairly sure that AF2013 ran really well on that.

More updates to follow.

Re: About using pc's and emulation for tournaments

I've run an Amiga emulator on the Raspberry Pi and it's sweet!

The best Amiga emulator I've seen for Windows is Amiga Forever, and THIS PAGE has information about system requirements.

Hope this helps,

John.

Re: New mobile 'phone

Didn't get to Heaton Park to test the slo-mo video, as I'd forgotten that Parklife was on this weekend, but I did get to Hollingworth Lake, and took a fairly decent test video, which I have uploaded to Bookface.

Very impressed with the handset.

Re: New mobile 'phone

Lenovo and Huwaei (or whatever they're called!) make some nice handsets. Not sure about the others you mentioned though.
