Shouldn't we have some screenshots for these games?
I have more dead Amigas than working ones!

I loved playing as the Jeep as you can lock the shooting in another direction when moving.

IIRC you can play as the Jeep just by itself without having another person to play the copter.

Maybe, if you think we need, but worried about server space?  I have added links to other sites that have plenty of screenshots.
What does everyone think?

Did a test run of my newly built KTRL pad on the 3000. Not too bad for a test, 2nd last on the scores board @ 285740!

Hi all,
Got my A1200 running (still no fast ram so no WHDLoad yet) and have now put in a Gotek drive (flashfloppy f/w).  I only was able to find one ADF that worked properly but seems the highscore overlay does not show at all!!  Anyone else have this issue and how to get around it??  or is there no ADF compatible with the Gotek in the A1200??

I was wondering - should we perhaps make SWIV the December game as well, since we haven't had a proper "launch" for the forum?
Laying in bed last night looking at the stars I thought to myself … Where the heck has the roof gone?? :tongue:
