Re: Spectranet

I think a wireless version would mean either building an ethernet<->wireless bridge into it, or completely redesigning the interface and firmwar...

Re: Spectranet

There was a 2 player game apparently written for the spectranet by Winston as I recall but wasn't "released", I think @guesser played it didn't you? Do you mean Spectank? That's up to four players and was "released" as it's all in the examples section of the spectranet source. I have a copy of the ...

Re: Spectranet

Awesome bit of kit, always wished more folk adopted it and hosted servers. Well if people would get around to plugging their raspberry pi back in... ;) I've got a public tnfs server online at tnfs://zxnet.co.uk but there's not much on there right now.

Re: New Utility to Transfer Z80 Snapshot to +3 Disk

You can also get files over to the +3 by writing them to a 720k DOS format 3.5" disk and using Garry Lancaster's "msdos" to transfer them to the internal 3" drive.

Or better still make your .dsk files for 720k +3DOS disk and write them directly to a double density diskette using dsktool

What I mean is, something like that could still work with an LCD TV.
Does an LCD produce bright enough light at a wavelength the gun is sensitive to though. I suspect not.
