Have a question?
No news for the Starquake backers :/ :/
Regarding my comment on Dec 23rd. Am I due a print?
I'm miss also my Starquake game.
Hi Chris, did you get an update on when the game is likely to be finished?
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).
@Shaun - will do.
@David - just chased for an update on the game.
Totally forgot about this one, any chance you can send a book as I haven't received anything as of yet?
Hi Chris, is there a date in mind when Star Quake will be finished. Thanks
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
@Terence @ Diego - I will send again..
Comment duh. Auto carrot.
As regards to my current moment on August 25th I still haven’t heard anything.
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.
@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?
Can I download PDF of C64 book and US Gold book I got earlier somewhere?
Hi Chris. I've just realised that I never received the book. Would you be able to take a look? Thanks
Wrote A few month back that the book arrieved long time ago but i pledged for the ocean and us gold book as Well and they Never showed. Can see in other comments they were not sent at tve same time but now its december and still not showed up?
Hi, sorry if I have missed this Chris, but when is Starquake being sent out please?
@Holger - will send again...
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.
@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.
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.
Next to work on - THE STARQUAKE GAME!!
Hope you guys like the book and all the goodies I have sent out so far :)
Received my IK+ canvas today which is beautiful. With the book and all other goodies this has been wonderful. Thank you!
Thank you Chris, that is much appreciated, can’t wait to read the book! :)
@Timo to your Japan address...
Can’t wait to receive mine, still waiting but I think you said you managed to send another to my UK address, fingers crossed it arrives.
It has arrived, thanks!!
@Holger - will send some more on...
The Spectrum and US Gold books also arrived now. Thank you very much!
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.
Thanks for the update Chris, looking forward to hanging it in the Amiga cave :)
Hi - I pledged at the 8-Bit Kids level but haven't seen any delivery yet (UK). Should I be concerned? Thx
any spare canvases going on the website ??
@Phil - hope to get them picked up from Alex tomorrow via UPS. He has them, they are signed, so I need to get them now to send out :)
Hi Chris, thank you very much for this - chuffed to bits with what I got for my pledge :) Just wondered if there were any updates on the Syndicate canvasses?
@Per - Unfortunately this is something that Allister does not want to do at this time. - sorry.
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.
Received the IK+ canvas today. Thnx!
@Mark and TDD - will have to send again...
@TrUlter - Pm'd you
Also got paperback instead of hardback as pledged. Mix-up?
Hi, just arrived also Commodore 64 in pixel.
I'm in the southern US and haven't received my two books yet. When to be concerned?
Recieved nothing as of yet, hopefully soon
