    • I have no problem with that, I love your video! But what was more of an issue, was that you were in a hurry. SEworldrs buy hundreds of leaf blowers to play with in videos, or other pricy things. Sure you can afford to park your car until the viseo is done, even though the partking cold cost hundreds of pounds/dollars? how to become a Patreon by the way? I am an old Ex. Amiga user

  • ST Generations is a bitch to get running properly, and has a nasty bug on one level that prevents progress. Basically, you either need to use period hardware or beat the shit out of your mouse rapidly clicking it while it loads a level. As for the bug, there is a hole in a wall that needs to be soothed before you can crouch jump through it. And even then it requires you to jump in place for some time to make it eventually let you through. Make sure you kill the enemies in the area before trying it.

    Commodorefan64Commodorefan64År sedan
    • 95% of all city spaces in much of Europe are paid parking spaces, and the fees aren't cheap either. That's why people would rather walk, ride a bike or use the public transportation system instead of driving a car. When I was to the US I found it quite puzzling how Americans were taking their car to drive just a couple of kilometers in the city, while walking 2 or 3 kilometers seemed like madness to them, unless you were jogging.
