Re: Spectaculator takes ages to start

Just after writing that post I've thought it may be the antivirus, and I was right. It seems Windows Defender takes longer to check Spectaculator than any other executable file, so I've added it to exclusions and now it starts fast again.

Spectaculator takes ages to start

Hi,

Since recently I've notice Spectaculator (8.0.0.3092) takes ages to start, then works fine. Is anyone else suffering this issue and/or knows how to fix it? Maybe it's Windows 10 related, I don't know.

Re: Your favourite classic Spanish game

Ole toro?

Nah, just kidding :lol:

For me, being also spanish native, it's difficult to choose among them all, but if I have to stick to one I'd choose Saimazoom: simple game, not a complicated plot, and not hard in excess, three ingredients of a playable and plenty of fun game.

Who..err...what did you cheat on your Spectrum with back in the day?

Which other 8 bit computers, either because you owned them or cause a friend had them did you play a lot with, letting down your Spectrum for a while? I had a Spectrum, and it was my "first love", but I also had a friend who had an Amstrad CPC and I played a lot in that CPC464. I vaguely used also a...

Re: Using DivIDE/MMC for new games

I belive having extra storage does not only allow developers to have more levels in their games without the pain of loading them, or more languages, what is definitively good, but also to make each level look different by replacing resources (different sprites, colors, etc.) or very different (using...

Using DivIDE/MMC for new games

Hi All, After playing the incredible Sword of Ianna you realize using additional and fast storage options can improve games a lot. I had been thinking a lot on that, cause although the Spectrum got a disk unit in the +3, it never become a mainstream device, as the C64 disk unit become in the US. The...

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

I belive choosing one worst game is as difficult as choosing best game ever. O can specially remember Macronic's ET, because it's also first game I ever player on my Spectrum, but if I spend 10 minutes thinking on it I can come with another 50 samples easily :-D Thank God we tend to remember only go...

Re: Responsive theme

Not that odd, actually it was my bad, after checking Safari options I found a submenu called "advanced options" and two options checked: fixed viewport and constant properties. To be honest I can't remember checking those, I don't even remember having been in that menu before, but I probably did at ...

Re: Responsive theme

Hi all and thank you for the welcome! I've realized the current theme is somehow responsive after loading it on Chrome in my iPhone 7. Sadly, it's not working on Safari, so I guess most iPhone 6/7/8/X users and maybe those with previous versions would be facing the same issue I am facing :( That iss...
