Freedom Crack #4 (1990, 26.12, ECS Filemag)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Not that much to read, but an OK outfit make this mag slightly worthwile. Later issues would prove to be much better. Too bad about all the uninteresting reviews with standardised questions... The middle of the screen is the reading area, there's a scroller at the bottom, and article selection on top. Pretty basic, but works OK. Nothing you ccan't afford to miss.

Vector Dream (1992, .02, ECS File)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Well, a bit hard to review this as I've never seen it! Still, the coder is Tron for god's sake, so how bad can it be? The music is a very cool Jester-like synthie-pop thing. For the record, 'Magic Duke' (Stefan Reisch) later appeared as GTO/Digital in 1994. Totally refuses to work on my configuration, no matter what I do to it.
tested A1200/030-50/2mb chip, 4mb fast/3.0.
Note: Does NOT work, not even with KillAGA.

Generation #1 (1992, .04, ECS Multifile Diskmag)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Well, first impressions are not so good, the intro guru'ed...
Tried again with KillAGA, and it worked but destabilized my system...
Thankfully the mag can be loaded on its own, so we try that. Well, this is very first issue of a mag that would grow to be legendary, but in respect we must say that they still had a long way to go. The first issues were more message and newsoriented, and had very little mag-content, to be honest, and in that respect it sortof works...But this was after all 1992, and there were MUCH better mags and boxes out there! It's a first release, that's all.
