Re: ZX HSC Round 8 - Kosmic Kanga / Pinball

Holy Smokes clebin !! That is a great score and an awesome achievement to complete the game with all your lives left. It's inspired me to try complete the game too.

Re: ZX HSC Round 9 - Mikie / Hunchback

Nice selection. Haven't played Hunchback for years. Hardly played Mikie at all so it'll be a new thing to get into.

Re: ZX HSC Round 8 - Kosmic Kanga / Pinball

Finally made it past level 3 in KFK to find the next 2 stages a breeze in comparison. Patience is key on level 3. Wait for that bouncing ball to be out of your way before advancing upward. Need to spend some more time on Ernesto after this round. I keep on getting trapped and forced to lose health. ...

We don't usually publish reverse side of inlays (inside text) in scanned form at SC. Only in TXT format.

Re: Found some old original tapes

Hi Cmal, Supercode scans (inlay+manual) are welcome! We don't usually publish reverse side of inlays (inside text) in scanned form at SC. Only in TXT format. Here is the list with some missing inlays in HD resolution (at least 300 dpi or 600 dpi). https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/missing_inlays_list...

Re: Found some old original tapes

Hi Cmal, Thanks for doing the scans, 600dpi is a great resolution and is overkill but should be good for any later reworking. I have scanned the inside of Bear Bovver,Terra Cresta, Invincible Island and Universal Hero (not added as yet to the site) Thanks for the other version of Road Toad , I have...
