28 March 2018

As Einar Saukas mentioned earlier, the latest ZXDB update contained a splendiferous amount of new content. The highlights are as follows:

The database does not contain the content, so a huge amount of effort goes on quietly behind the scenes to upload all the content to the server. Thanks to everyone who contributes to this task (you know who you are!), and this week a special thanks to those of you who have taken on the task of the CSS CGC Screenshots.

If you want your name in lights next week, then join on the journey to Spectrum perfection!
