Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with M: discussion

I'm throwing in another nomination for:
Metabolis - because this game doesn't get nearly enough love! (I don't recall seeing it in A Gremlin in the Works either :( )

And:
Moron (the text adventure)
Metro-Cross
Molecule Man
Monopoly (by Leisure Genius)

As long as your program doesn't use the SPECTRUM or PLAY keywords or the Ram Disk, it'll load and run fine on a 48K.
AFAIK my game, Brexit: The Final Countdown, didn't use those keywords or the Ram and you can't advance past the first screen. Also the background is yellow instead of white!

Re: Advice on the sweet setup for programming on the Speccy.

Why don't you use the Basic the emulator comes with which I assume is Sinclair Basic unless you are using an emulator that has an odd setting? I use Fuse and if the single key stroke commands is off putting, switch to 128k model with 128 Basic. Unless I'm mistaken, the only issue with this is that ...

Re: TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

Weirdly on the laptop, if I put it to about 50 - 60 on volume (around 45 on audacity) it tries to load but any higher and the signal goes again.

TZX/TAP to Cassette/Spectrum

I can't seem to be able to get my laptop to load spectrum files to my ZX Spectrum+ through Tapr or Audacity, or use PlayZX/TeeZiX through my phone. It almost picks up a signal but doesn't load it - you can see it almost trying but then it stops. I've used the black/grey cassette leads from the spect...

Maybe an opportunity for me to get back coding on the Vectrex - good thing that the deadline is in October so I can finish other stuff first! :)

Re: LIST of loader screens

P.S. Now that I think about, I’m not sure how you were able to break into BASIC to begin with. It clearly messes up the ERR SP system variable, so if you try to break into BASIC after the LOAD statement has been executed, the computer should reset. Hmm. Are you pulling our leg here? All I did was t...
