Re: [ITA] Giochi della rivista PAPERSOFT n.34 1985

Grande, hai ribattuto un bel po' di roba! Me la scarico. :)
Avevo backupato tutto su un mio disco esterno che per la legge di Murphy si è fritto l'anno scorso.
Sono davvero dispiaciuto, c'era un sacco di roba anche nella mia sottopagina vic20.it/orion70 :evil:

Re: Speech synthesiser cartridge

I think one of its biggest potentials may have been to help the blind use computers, or with edutainment like the Speak & Spell. Here's a practical example in the VIC Computing Magazine, Vol 2 No 3 (Feb 1983), Pages 27-28. Online at VIC20 linstings : "A Talking VIC" 16K expansion, Vox...

Re: [ITA] Giochi della rivista PAPERSOFT n.34 1985

Grazie! Non so se era originariamente già stato ribattuto dalla rivista: l'intero archivio vic20.it/papersoft è andato perduto. O qualcuno l'ha salvato in blocco? Ho provato ancora per vari canali a contattare Nicola "nbla000", ma apparentemente è sparito da tutto i radar. ENGLISH: anyone ...

Re: Speech synthesiser cartridge

@floopy - you can play adventures while a strange, monotonous voice uselessly reads them for you :P . Or, you can make your daughter smile while the VIC greets her. Again, you can bully your friends in the forum with the super-rare cart they will never ever have :mrgreen:

Re: Speech synthesiser cartridge

Fantastic piece of hardware! The manual was already scanned by Jogi (thread here ), but there's no wiki page yet (if you wish you can write one). Speech modules are listed here in the "peripherals" wiki page. I had fun with two of them in the past: - the Protecto Speakeasy (Denial threads ...

Re: New Release: Exit Plan Z 2

It's a good game though, you shouldn't be too harsh with your creature! Going for an Adventure-like release is not a bad idea at all, but so why not porting Adventure itself to the VIC altogether then? :P

Re: Vic weather station

Wow! Now this is good news! Thanks so much for your reply here. It's maybe the very first weather station to be seen in the wild. Pazman, it would be great if you could take pictures of it (incl. internals if possible), and dump to digital format its software and instructions (if you have them). The...

Hey amigo! Welcome to the friendly forum to the one and only Mexican guy here :) . Another flag on our world map!
