[AC 2011] April 16 & 17 2011 at Congis (77440) FRANCE


Recommended Posts


The RGC association is happy to announce the upcoming AC 2011, which will take place on April 16th and 17th.


This 6th convention dedicated to 8, 16 and 32-bit vintage computers will be located in Congis (France) in a friendly atmosphere. As usual, software and hardware presentations will be featured, as well as the yearly Medieval Mayhem tournament (on Atari 2600). You'll also be able to discover and play freely on machines from those iconic brands.


For 3 years, the AC has included a gaming-centered speed-coding contest. Previous editions have seen the birth of ambitious projects. A new challenge in 2011? We'll let you know more soon.


If you're an Atari, Amiga, Commodore, Amstrad, MSX, Thomson (or any other brand you'd like to promote) enthusiast, you'll be welcome.


Be sure to circle the date on your calendar not to miss this must-attend event for the retro-gaming community.

The concept ?

At the beginning the AC was an ATARI-branded convention. However the convention is now opened to all computer brands of the 80’s & 90’s. Amigamaniacs, Amstradalcoholics, MSX eaters and other are more than welcome to celebrate, exchange, debate, play, code and more during a week-end.

Two major activities:

One speed coding party, teams from different countries on different machines will have to code a game around the TETRIS theme. Please contact us for more information.


Free-play as usual lots of computer and gaming systems of the 80’s and early 90’s will be at your disposal; from the VCS 2600 to the Jaguar, from the commode 64 to the Amiga 1200, from CPC-128 to the GX-4000, and much more. Take a place in a journey to the numerous hours of your youth, revive all the victories, failures, joys and frustrations that have made your most precious memories.

But the AC is also the occasion to bring your favorite machine in order to present it, repair it or to improve it. The Retro-gaming Connexion team will always have a place for you and your dream machine.

We are looking forward to welcome you.

See you soon!
