Just received my copy of Retrokomp Issue 2, the multi-format retro magazine.
Once again there is plenty of content with a hefty count of 72 thick glossy pages and over a third of them devoted to Commodore machines. If you are interested in other machines besides Commodore then there’s even more on offer with the like of ZX Spectrum, Atari, Amstrad, Apple 2 and even old IBM PC’s covered.
Here’s a few highlights of this issues contents.
A quick run-down of the Commodore-centric articles in Retrokomp Issue 2:
- Commodore 1541 Drive – Typical Problems
- Simon’s BASIC – Sprites mean strange objects on the screen
- Raspberry Pi 1541
- Commodore PET vs Atari BASIC
- Using the USR statement
- Clearing the high resolution screen
- Commodore 64 Restoration
- Modula-2 Programming
- 24-Bit datatypes for Workbench
- Simple file backup
- Memory card readers
If you’ve never come across Retrokomp magazine before you might like to read through my preview of the first issue here and the second, here.

Do you know if this magazine is still being produced?
I’m afraid it is not – the guy that was producing it (Adam Zalepa) just one day took down his website and vanished without trace. Unfortunately, he left a number of customers, including myself, out of pocket and never provided the goods we paid for or a refund. There wasn’t even an apology or even just a notification that he was ceasing trading. Very disappointing.
