Re: New loading screens by Andy Green

Great stuff! Green Beret has his winter camouflage on to help him blend into the trunk of the left most tree. And I'm really hoping Robbie the robot is skating on top of the lake and not frozen solid underneath it. :)

Anybody manage Rorthron's cryptic clues? I found them all manageable, after reading the answers...
I managed to work out clue no. 2 (and I think that was because I couldn't think of another Spectrum game beginning with Ken off the top of my head). The rest were a bust.

Re: Woot! ZXMAS Tape Magazine 2017

Cheers for this. I could only get it to work by turning off the 'Auto tape play/stop' checkbox in the Tape Playback Options group of the Tape property sheet in the Options dialog. When I had this on, after pressing F11 to manually load the first turbo block, the game would load up right until the en...

Re: Woot! ZXMAS Tape Magazine 2017

Unfortunately I think '12 days' has a bug. If you cancel a link just next to the destination number it is supposed to connect, the number disappears. Thanks for spotting that. I hadn't and I've been playing it for over a month now. :oops: I've made a fix which should hopefully stop that from happen...

12 Days Of Christmas is very much the Last Of The Summer Wine of puzzle games.

Re: Woot! ZXMAS Tape Magazine 2017

Top notch work Mr R-Tape! Eric Banksy, Gubscroll and Magic Nights put a smile on my face which Doodlebug quickly removed. :) Infuriating but in a good way. Anyone else having difficulties loading cr*pmas.tzx? Had to fiddle about getting the first turbo loading block to work in SpecEmu only for it to...

Re: Friday Night Quiz: Nathan Barley
