Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with J: vote

Choosing between Jet Pac and Jack the Nipper II (which in my opinion is much better than JTN I) was difficult. JTN2 it's an awesome videoadventure game that allows you to explore a lot and so have a lot of fun and enjoy the game a lot without even complete the game. On the other hand, Jet Pac is an ...

Re: ZAD Adventure System - Progress

Very interesting tool! Congratulations! Would you consider supporting Kempston mouse to move that cursor? It can be used in a real Spectrum with the original mouse interface, and most modern clones as ZX-Uno and Spectrum Next support it. In the end you can move that cursor with keys or joystick if y...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with B: vote

I voted Bomb Jack, one of the best arcade game conversions for the Speccy. There are many good titles in the list though, I could have voted others but I had to choose one :-)

Re: Poll: Atic Atac or Sabre Wulf?

I consider Atic Atac best ZX Spectrum solo game, so I didn't hesitate a bit when choosing my option.

Sabre Wulf is a nice game too, but you can't compare teh ambience of a jungle with that of a haunted house.

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.
