Personal Computer World magazine

Hi,
Does anyone here collect, or have access to PCW (Personal Computer World) magazine?
I am looking for any issue that may have games for the BBC Micro or Electron, so issues between 1982 and 1988 would be of the most interest.
Thanks

Re: Cleaning up game titles on Details pages

So to use the above example of "Island, The":
This would display as "The Island" but when browsing the site alphabetically, it would appear with the I's and not the T's. Is that correct?
That's what I would want!

Re: Video fault

A VTI VC2069 should have S26 fitted in the east position.
If you have a VTI VC2023 then no link should be fitted at S26 but there should be a wire link on the underside of the motherboard.
If you have a VTI VC2023 and fit link S26 you will see garbage on screen.

Re: Video fault

As Rob says above, I don't think a VC2023 needs ANY link.
I think putting the link in may well give the corruption you are seeing.

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Yep, this is a mystery.
I have searched for it before without success.
I can only think that it wasn't as finished as they were making out?
The best bet would be to ask Robert or Mike O'Leary of Robico if anyone can come up with any contact details.
