Re: TileMap v1.0

I wonder how far it can be pushed.

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

I think Survival gets a pass, as it's educational.

Biggest disappointment for 13 year old me was Monte Carlo on the Horizons tape, closely followed by Foxes and Rabbits!

Re: Horace games

Skiing was the only one I had back in the day, in fact I think it was the first game I played, since it came as a pack-in.
Nostalgia is strong with this one.

None of them are great games, but Skiing seems the best. Both stages are playable and fair, with gradually increasing difficulty.

Re: ZEsarUX-7.1

Thanks for the fast response 8-) Yes I had Real video setting on - "off" was a bad choice of words, I just meant it was showing some issues. I know that ZXSpin doesn't have all the features that ZEsarUX has, I was using ZXSpin for comparison to see if it was a bug in the game or with the emulation. ...

Re: ZEsarUX-7.1

With Gandalf Deluxe, the multicolour is off in the latest version 7.1 of ZEsarUX, on Windows 10 (1809 :shock: ) Using +2A configuration there are rolling colour lines near your starting position and on the right hand ladder. Using 128K or +2, the multicolour is stable but there appear to be errors o...

Re: Basic VAL function

I liked the trick of putting all the numbers in as zero and poking the correct values into the 5 bytes so you'd end up with loader programs like: 10 CLEAR 0: POKE 0,0: LOAD "" CODE: RANDOMIZE USR 0 You would still save some memory on the larger numbers, plus it would add some simple obfuscation. Als...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with G: discussion

Should G-Force be included?

Apparently it was initially called Tempest, but there's no cassette inlay of it called that.

Re: Games with notable maps

Nonterraqueous had a huge map with very few differences between rooms https://maps.speccy.cz/map.php?id=Nonterraqueous1

Tantalus and Terminus were fantastically detailed for such large maps.

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

Issue with the images is to do with HPKP pinning. An error occurred during a connection to vgy.me. The server uses key pinning (HPKP) but no trusted certificate chain could be constructed that matches the pinset. Key pinning violations cannot be overridden. Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_KEY_PINNING...
