  1. Hey Joe!
    Thumbs up on getting the podcast up and going again!

    This was a great episode – DOTC was one of my favorite games growing up and I spent many hours playing it on the C64 and on the Amiga.

    A quick note about the Amiga theme used in the podcast – it sounds like it was recorded in PAL mode – so it is playing at a slower speed than it is supposed to. The game was designed in the US, so was meant to be played in NTSC mode.

    NTSC / PAL differences were never really an issue for DOS games but were a big thing in the C64 / Amiga platforms. (Many games made in Europe for PAL won’t even run on NTSC machines, or they run at the wrong speed, etc)
