Re: JSSpeccy on-line emulator ready for testing

I have JSSpeccy on my site, and had problems with the scaling too. This , for example. I have JSSpeccy zoom to be contained by the body, and it looks particularly bad in Chrome.

Re: 60x44 low res mode

But 64x48 graphics are even easier on a 128K - you just switch between two screens every four scanlines. I had an idea to make a multicolour speedloader doing exactly this. Although it would probably be a slowloader :D Would work best on the kind of graphics where there's lots of gradual incrementa...

Re: NOXROM Cartridge

I remember something in a mag, back in the day (possibly Tim Hartnell or Toni Baker?) teasing access to 80K. I saw a reference to it recently, but I can't find it now.

Re: How to encode large amounts of text/data.

I think part of the problem with the proc-generated games like no-mans sky its a 'thousand miles wide but an inch deep'. That is the exact problem. I used to make a lot of generative music on modular synths back in the day, and it's extremely difficult to set up a situation where startlingly unexpe...
