Re: SC Retro

“Microdrive” gets my vote as a Sinclair themed name but as the previous post said sometimes straightforward works just as well.

Re: The best Speccy game by Silversoft: discussion

Slipper Sid was a neat little game and I played it a lot back when I got my first Speccy :D

Worse things happens at sea was my favourite game though.

Re: ZX Dandanator Mini

Found the select bits buried in the source file and none of them match to what was programmed by default so that probably explains why it didn't work.

ZX Dandanator Mini

Hi All, Does anyone have any experience with these devices? In particular the programming of the PIC chip and the bits that need to be set when you program it.

Re: The best Speccy game by Quicksilva: discussion

I really liked Fred and Bugaboo was pretty good and Glass was a decent shoot em up as well. I liked Ant Attack but I just feel there were other good games released by Quicksilva aside from Sandy White’s game.

Did anyone ever fit the 220nf capacitors on the lower RAM to help with the “jailbars” ?

Thinking more in terms of the 48KB models rather than the 128K/+2 but interesting nonetheless. :)

Re: Spectrum+ 48k repair

This diode snapped in half at some point when desoldering the lower ram chips.
