Re: TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

Final update...
Got it all working with the volume booster app set at 60% and full volume on my phone. Every game runs perfect. Guess it took time and a little perseverance to find the sweet spot.

Re: TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

Re: TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

Re: TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

No need for Winamp or the suchlike, you can "play" tapes with emulators such as Spectaculator, SpecEmu, or programs like Tapir.

Re: TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

Yes, it's not working...odd. I've actually downloaded mine as a bundle with Winamp from an obscure site. And I can't find a link for it now! I will upload mine somewhere later.

Spectrum 48k Issues

So I bought a Spectrum + 48k and I have a few issues that I hope someone can help with. 1) When I plug the power cord into the Spectrum sometimes it won't go to the copyright text. Sometimes it will just stay at the back box/grey border. I have to reset a few times before it will work. 2) Some keys ...
