Happy May Day, C= and Ami aficionados!
The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2+ p.m., Sunday, May 7 at --
Bobby Salazar's Mexican Restaurant
2839 North Blackstone Ave. (corner of Blackstone and Michigan)
The Bay Area Maker Faire is almost here, and we'll be talking about preparations for that show. Also the Pacific Commodore Expo NW is a month away, and we'll be going over the planning of that show.
We'll view the final part of the film, "Viva Amiga: The Story of a Beautiful Machine," and perhaps we'll take a peek of the extra, "Viva Amiga: the Bil Herd Story".
The VIC-20 cartridge, the Final Expansion 3 Rev. 11, returns -- this time with more stuff loaded onto its SD card. We'll also have a crack at Doom for the VIC-20. For the C64, we'll look at the classic Computes' Gazette games -- Crossroads and Crossroads II -- (or even VICrossroads for the VIC-20) and decide if they are worthy for the two-player competition at the July 29-30 Commodore Vegas Expo. For the C64, Plus/4, and C128, we have the new game, Gunfright. For the C64 only, we have new releases -- Matteo's Land, which is a hack improving on the classic Giana Sisters game; Katakis, a game fixed for NTSC; and VVVVVV, a game made famous on other computers. For the C128 only, there is the new demo, MD201704, by Cosine. The AmigaOne G4 returns with more installed software, and/or the Amiga 500 returns, this time with the Trojan Lightpen and its KwikDraw software.
