    As you suspected, I was yelling at the screen 🙂 You jump, then push left to smash through the glass.
    You can tell who the people are through the windows, as the fatter people are the hostages, and the others are the terrorists.
    A favourite game of mine from the early Amiga years.

    A bit more info. after watching the actual podcast and having a go in WinUAE.
    Shooting the terrorists through the windows definitely reduces the numbers when you go inside.
    The easiest way to get through the windows it to just push left and press fire when over a window.
    When in the corridors left /right make you turn left/right, but when in the rooms it's the other way round.
    I'll try to join the live stream, though it is a bit late. Most of Europe will be asleep.

    Thanks Paul! The directions (as far as I can remember) make no mention of pressing left, just pressing the fire button. Or maybe I just didn't read correctly 🙂 At any rate, I'll be giving the game another go with this info!

    I was also screaming, it's like come on just break in ! – it's so easy. Like Paul I can confirm Shooting through the windows does reduce the numbers.
    Not sure I can make the live stream, might just appear for first 10 mins to say hi.

    Aaron, I shared your pain re: CD burning back then. Before buffer underrun protection was introduced you could ruin a CD if you breathed too heavily near it. Then there were all the different file systems you'd have to match, over burning, closed and unclosed sessions.

    CloneCD helped a lot but I preferred to use virtual CD mounting utilities like Daemon Tools to avoid having to write to physical discs at all. Everything ran so much faster and you didn't waste any CDs experimenting.

    I had my first CD burner on my 486 DX2/66 which made coasters all the time. I was sent a copy of MasterISO for the Amiga to review for the Amiga Monitor magazine and connecting the same burner to my Amiga 2000 which had a 23MHz 030 and less RAM, I never had a problem burning a CD. Did not get a single bad disk when my 2000 burned them. Of course this was all when blank CDs cost a lot.
