  1. It's pretty cool that they're doing this at all though. I mean, would we rather have no retro Lego? BTW I'm pretty sure this is the work of Chris McVeigh. He made the mini Lego C64 that inspired my full-size Lego C64; The Brixty Four. Some time after my videos came out he was hired by Lego and moved to Denmark. I'm going to guess this was the result of that. Good for him! (My bags are packed and by the door...)
  2. I'm a CP/M fan. I used it heavily back in the day on our Amstrad PCW. I have a PCW now as you probably have seen. I also installed CP/M on the ZX Spectrum Next, along with some PCW software. And if it's an option I'll do the same on the X16. Why? Because if it's possible to run a language I used in 1986 on 3 machines in 2020, two of them brand new, and one not even a clone but a completely new brand, then that is incredible to me. (And also of course, nostalgia.)
    Incredible work! It works great, even in the web emulator with mouse support. Nice work!
  3. That was an A4000. Have fun! [emoji106][emoji973]️
  4. Geesh! [emoji44] Time to get a second mortgage on the house for that!
  5. Those were the days eh?! For the concept render just drop me a DM rather than post it publicly initially. We've had these kind of things posted before with the case and logo, and they have caused some confusion and drama "out there", despite the best intentions [emoji6] I'll take a look and we can go from there if that's cool. Thanks for your interest and energy!
  6. Very cool! Have you seen my Team17 videos about it? I got the Amiga used to make Worms and LightWave was still installed...
  7. Pinging @Michael Steil on this one...
  8. Welcome! And thank you! That render was done with the help of Mat Recardo on LightWave 3D. 🕹
  9. Hi, Yes I believe so, it should behave normally in that case. Only the keycap text is changed. Silent Red is a good choice. Others may have other opinions. A very small amount goes towards the development costs of this keyboard. The majority goes to WASD for manufacturing & profit. So the answer is yes, but minimally. Your friend in retro, Perifractic
  10. This only seems to happen in a small number of cases and is not uncommon for forum sign up emails. Thanks for the info.
  11. I appreciate the ideas. But it's the details where this sort of idea falls apart. As mentioned in the FAQ, if you look at other retro projects that went with a bespoke case, they had over a year, nearly 2 years delay added to the project due to problems with their own manufacturing. It isn't something the X16 team wishes to take on. 3D printing, as you mention, also isn't viable. I'm happy to leave this here as a feature request however. Never say never. Feel free to noodle on ideas, and we can see what the future brings. Thanks.
  12. Hi @Lambda_BM, I've moved this to feature requests. We've avoided bespoke cases for reasons detailed in the FAQ. I'd have one question for you at this stage: How would you manufacture it (considering the points detailed in the FAQ)?
    Fantastic stuff!
  13. Our PSU is 180W but the stock machine without expansions will use far less than that.
  14. Yep it's literally called fireworks night. "Remember, remember the 5th of November; the gunpowder treason & plot".
  15. We thought people would like that feature! Happy 4th, or as we call it in England, Saturday.
  16. Whilst I don't use Twitter (& neither does David AFAIK) this is undeniably cool! Nice work! [emoji106][emoji973]️
  17. Or as we call it in England, Saturday!
  18. I wouldn't be surprised either. Also, you should read the FAQ right though every morning before you get out of bed.
  19. We are going with SNES for some good reasons. More info in the FAQ. [emoji106][emoji973]️
  20. Good question. This should have been in the FAQ so I just added it: Offering too many options and variables too early can dilute resources and focus, and thus be detrimental to projects. It opens up all sorts of other variables that take time and money to resolve, such as the need for different packaging to give just one of many examples. So the short answer is, it hasn't been decided yet, but we hear you.
