MTX on the road.

Post by stephen_usher » 08 Jul 2019 19:33

This last weekend was the annual "Elite: Dangerous" community game convention and I took seven computers with me as part of the retro-gaming exhibition, including my MTX512.

Given that many of the players are "84'ers", i.e. played Elite when it first came out in 1984, surprisingly few knew about of remembers the MTX despite it appearing many a time in PCW and "Your Computer" etc.

Anyway, good fun was had by all and the MTX + CFX ran without a fault.

Anyway, here's how the MTX display looked...

Nice!

What does the little story in the picture frame say?

I just threw something together quite quickly... (So much so I put "Strange Science" rather than "Weird Science"!)

Nice Crib Sheet and info!

I’m glad that CFX seemed to perform OK

In case any of you want to use the displays, here they are (ODT word processor files) with "Strange Science" fixed.
