...And -1 more byte 8-)

Now 563 bytes -12 to go
Does that include a fix for the incorrect start positions?

Sometimes you get so wrapped up in the coding that you fail to see the bigger picture. Can you spot what's wrong here :?:

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

I think you may be getting caught up too much in the need to find an identical image, exactly the same photo, whereas I'm trying to point out it's down to similarities in actors in general. If you want a nonsensical example then Billy Dee Williams can't be the model for Chase HQ because in that pict...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

I'm not saying for definite that it is a match, nor am I saying the pic I posted was used in any way as a template, I could have used Raymond St. Jacques for example from 'Come Back Charleston Blue' instead and given more time to go through my blaxploitation films likely many others. It's just to po...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

It seems that the Chase HQ figure is Billy Dee Williams. This is the source: I don't see it (the match I mean). Nor me, looks a real stretch to be honest. That pose was pretty much standard for movie and TV characters in the 70's, just off the top of my head have a look at the 'Magnum Heat' version...

Re: Spectrum +3 disk images via Kryoflux

So what's the policy with this scheme\method concerning "Distribution Denied" titles, some of which are mentioned in the OP?

I assume it's OK to copy off such titles for your own use as long as you don't distribute or make them available to others as with their casette versions?

Re: Out Run - where the Spectrum fell short

I'm filming the final bits for this Out Run video this weekend, then it's all a case of editing it. For that authentic retro feel can you use your editing software to change the Frames Per Second the video runs at so it's more in line with that of the 48K Spectrum version of Out Run. 3FPS should do...
