And? = Do I really care (hate saying it, but the guy never answered a lot of questions from years ago - IMHO I just don't care about him anymore - no hate, just like whatever).

Same here :) and I don't expect him to act differently now as he removed his videopac.org account a while ago and also sold a lot of his collection.

I suspected as much, I'm only here since 2009.
Perhaps, I can ask him some questions remained unanswered at the time?

You sure can try, but don't expect to much.

Last week I bought two old homebrews from him at ebay  :D

Was Richard Page an important person in the Videopac scene?
What has he done  ???

He used to be running the old forum at videopac.org. He also released a couple of homebrews, some with permission of the programmers.

I've bought Videopac 48 Backgammon with English/Finnish manual from him last week.
Seems he's selling some rare objects from his collection. Maybe he's not interested in Videopac anymore.

Clay Pigeon is my Holy Grail.


Clay Pigeon+ was originally released by Nico Sapin, Richard did a second release a few years later.

This is a homebrew I really miss, because the game is looking great on Videopac+.

Too bad, that nobody makes a 3rd release  ;)

Clay Pigeon plus was not a homebrew but a prototype. The non-plus version was only released in Brazil back in eighties.

I hovered over that buy-it-now button for two days, when he dropped the price it made me wait. AAGGHH  :)

Not sure about tshirts and mousepad, but he did do magazine reprints. I tried one, and he put his brand logo over the entire reprint. Not good at all.
