      Hi Chris, did you get an update on when the game is likely to be finished?

    5. jean-christophe acquaviva on February 9

      got mine. The package was damaged (book + CD) but globally OK.

      FTR, Chris did indeed send an additional pack of books to me in December, which arrived mid-January. I now have pretty much all the things I pledged for (one item seems to have been accidentally substituted for another, which I've just chosen to accept as is given the shipping costs, etc).

      Never mind Speccy book reprints, as amazing as that was, I'm still waiting for an email announcing your Kickstarter to make an Atari ST book. It's a travesty of history that this inferior Ameoba thing gets a book but the much loved ST does not. :-D

      Hi, Chris

      I sent you a message via the Pledge form on November 29 but I haven't got an answer, so I'll just repost it here.

      As of Dec 22 I haven't yet received my books (the one from the project plus the US Gold book). Does the package have a tracking number, so I can check with the local mail? Or does the delay mean I should assume it didn't arrive? (the delay seems unusually long, even for regular mail).

      BTW, our local mail usually notifies the receiver by telegram if there are any issues with customs, but books do not have any duties or taxes in Argentina, so the books should have either already arrived, or I should have got a notification.

      Regards,
      Diego

      @Ewen, Nick and Carsten - Books sent out today.

      Hi Chris, I too am waiting for the Ocean and US Gold extra (paperback) books that I "upgraded" my pledge to include 18 months ago. My base pledge (Amiga/C64 hardbacks) arrived fine late September (10 weeks ago), but no sign at all of the Ocean/US Gold paperbacks. In September you said you were "still shipping", but I assume that was completed in October, so even with international shipping I'd expect the extra books to have arrived by now (5+ weeks later).

      Can you either (a) confirm the shipping date of the extra paperbacks to New Zealand so I can ask the post office to investigate, (b) ship the extra paperbacks that got overlooked, or (c) at least provide electronic versions of the books as a partial recompense?

      Thanks,

      Ewen

      Hi Chris,

      I wrote a month ago that my books didn't arrive and they still didn't :(
      Did you already send them a second time? If so, should I probably wait a little longer as they are still on the way? If you think they should have arrived by now, maybe I can give you an alternate address? If that's a possibility, let me know how I can provide this to you via mail.

      Cheers

      @Timo & @Retromania - can you tell me what typos and errors please via PM.

      Received my book yesterday, thank you very much for re-sending it to my Japanese address, it arrived safely and very quickly. Really loving the book, it has a very Amiga feel and reminds me of flipping through CU Amiga and Amiga Format. Thank you for such a great job, the extras are such lovely toppings on an already stellar product. There are a few typos even in the first couple of pages but considering this is a first run batch that is understandable. Thank you again and I really appreciate that you sent me a hardback instead of the paperback.

    25. RetromanIE on October 28, 2017

      Just getting a chance to read through the book today. So far it’s good, but there are typos and errors like in previous books which is disappointing. So far I’ve noticed a typo on page 159, error on 121. Nothing really terrible, but worth mentioning for the next book(more or better proof readers needed).

      Still and enjoyable read though.

      Hi Chris, thanks for the regular updates. I'm living in Spain and so far I haven't received the two books. Did you send all of them out already? Just asking, cause Spanish post office is slow sometimes ;)

      A little delay on the picking up of the Syndicate canvasses - they have now been picked up and are on their way to me :)

      @Tim - yes, they would have been sent out.

      Hi Chris. I have asked this question before and I ask it again. Is it possible to upload the Amiga Works CD by Whittaker in high quality .MP3 or/and .FLAC format to Dropbox or Google Drive?
      I am a collector and don't want to ruin my CD by unwrapping it. I am sure other's want's the same thing as I do. Thank you.
