1987-1993 Commodore 64 & Amiga


Commodore 64, Amiga, Deluxe Paint, Locus Team, Asterix (Asteriks)


The year was 1987. I was 12 years old.My father bougt me a commodore 64 computer. My friend Özkan Huvaj had a sinclair Spectrum at that time. It wasn't the first time that I see a computer but it was my first one. Also It was the first time that I met with computer graphics.

The first graphics program that I use is Koala Painter. There was 16 colors palette. And you can't put 4 pixel with different colors together. There must be some space between them. There was no mouse no scanner no internet no graphics tablet. At least I didnt have one. I was trying to paint with joystick. :))) I recorded some of them to tape but I lost em.



The "undo" command was called "Oops".
Koala painter was a simple bitmap graphics editor by Audio Light Inc. KoalaPad is a graphics tablet produced from 1984 by U.S. company Koala Technologies for several early 8-bit home computers. Koala Painter was bundled with the pad.




When it's 1990 I met with Amiga 500. It has stunning graphic and sound capabilities for an affordable price. I created lots of graphics with Delux Paint Software. With my 3 friends (Kuban Altan, Özkan Huvaj, Volkan Tiftik) we formed a group called Locus Team. Unlike other cracker groups we tryed to create games and demos. Asterix (or Asteriks) 1991 was the first Turkish Amiga game that reach alot of people. Our second game was Dead Breath 1992. It's language was English and somehow it spreaded to the world, beacase we haven't got internet at that years. You can find it at http://www.lemonamiga.com

Merhaba Alper bey. Blogunuzu Asterix'i ararken tesadüfen keşfettim. Bu oyuna sahibim fakat aradan geçen yıllarda disket hasar görmüş ve bazı dosyalar okunamaz durumda. Dolayısıyla, oyunu çalıştırmak mümkün olmadı. Retrojen.org olarak Locus Team ve Asterix ile ilgili bir çalışma yapmak istiyoruz fakat oyunun çalışan bir kopyasına ulaşamıyoruz maalesef. Lemonamiga.com sitesinde bulunduğunu belirmişsiniz. Siteyi kontrol ettim; sanırım oyun o sitenin veritabanından bir şekilde kaldırılmış. Oyunun .dms veya .adf imajı halen elinizde mevcutsa sizden temin etmem ya da blogunuz üzerinde bir link ile paylaşmanız mümkün olabilir mi acaba?
