Re: ZX Recoloring project

Would Super Off Road be a good candidate to be recoloured? Playability could be improved by giving the player a different colur as every car looks the same! I would expect that the same car sprite is used for all cars, so there is only one sprite to colour, resulting in all cars then having that co...

Gnasher was also released by Mastertronic:

I know, because it was one of the first games I ever bought with my own money :D
That was the re-release - see https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 96&id=2063 - only original releases count for these polls.

Re: SAM Coupé screenshot format

If I remember correctly, hybrid screen modes were possible... with splits between say mode 4 for graphics and mode 3 for text... And you could overcome the 16 colour limit of mode 4 by using line interrupts to get all 128 colours on screen at once. (All of that was beyond me at the time... Although...

Re: The best Speccy game by Mikro-Gen: discussion

This is the list I've come up with... For some reason these alphabetical lists just do not work for me.

Re: SAM Coupé screenshot format

1. PNG cannot be regenerated if we would like to correct some errors. Like, for example, if we correct the palette one day (happened twice on ZX-Art) Good point. 2. PNG cannot guarantee 100% accurate info preserving, and we are actually doing the digital art preservation in most cases. ok. 3. PNG c...

Re: SAM Coupé screenshot format

Why use a special custom format and not just png? With spectrum screens / mode 1 and mode 2 you can argue that you want a format that preserves hidden data beneath the attributes and flash, for mode 3 and 4 I do not see the point. If it is going to be custom then I would certainly include border col...

@yerzmyey would be the man to ask, but I don't think he's been here for a while. The catchy AY on More Tea Vicar is a cover of something apparently. If I once knew — I've forgotten. Does anyone know what it's a cover of?

Re: New Database Model ZXDB

I'm glad to announce that ZXDB is now integrated with World of SAM . Many thanks to Andrew Collier for approving this integration, and @Stefan for adding all information about Sam Coupé titles into ZXDB! I've noticed there are SAM games (listed on World of Sam) missing from the archive. Are these s...
