Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Of course it's ok not to contribute, nobody should feel they have to. But I have noticed you're very vocal in your criticisms on this board, which seem to be mostly of the "in hindsight, they should've done this" type. You should write another book, I'm sure it will be useful for people doing futur...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

It's not the people that are flawed its the logic of asking people who don't have the hardware to contribute to the hardware that is. I have positively contributed £185 of my own money to this project. I won't count the suite of graphic utilities I wrote for the Next in 2017 since they were for my o...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

If you're only into the classic machines, that's still there with the bonus that the machine is able to behave like a 48k, 128k, +3 or pentagon. The ula implementation for each of these three types is not quite 100% yet but it will get there. Maybe you want to help out in that department :) ? Do yo...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Whoever promised an update every two weeks made a mistake. Nothing happens in two weeks - it should be a regular update once a month even to say nothing happened, and extra updates for real news. That would have been Henrique Olifiers himself in the Kickstarter Update dated April 2nd 2018 - " ...an...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Come on, on the last point. I take personal offense at being accused of being apathetic and holding lack of concern. I (and others) donate hours upon hours of sparse free time to make the product as good as it can be. This does not change the reality of how long it takes to make something physical ...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I really don't understand what people expect to happen by moaning continuously, its late and that's it - nothing anyone can do about it, would you prefer a product with either no keyboard or one that doesn't work? I know what I would like as a backer, a working keyboard. Right now I'd be happy with...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

According to their Twitter feed: "Still waiting on news on the keyboard. There are a few different threads happening in parallel. Changes to the hammer size, domes, contact design which requires new tooling. Hoping to have results soon!" Backers were told a month ago that minor changes were being ma...

Re: Hallucinogenic experiences in Spectrum games, new and old, with d2010

Some people take images from old Spectrum games and put them on mugs, T-shirts, Mouse Mats and Playing Cards. Others take those same images and make strange avant-garde videos out of them. It means what it is, a personal piece of media that someone spends a lot of their own time and effort creating ...

Re: Create a fullscreen scrolltext

Proportional text looks a lot better. (Font is an old 42CPL one since I already had the sizes for the letters)
