I tried both Chrome and Safari in Windows and MacOS, but I could not reproduce this problem. I have the same issue at smaller display widths. It seems to be cau...

Re: Dinky Digger & Androids (Sunshine) on Spectrum Grey +2

Androids doesn't work because it reads the keyboard incorrectly. Give these POKEs a try and see if they work for you:

POKE 30029, 230
POKE 30030, 1
POKE 30217, 230
POKE 30218, 4
POKE 30227, 230
POKE 30228, 1
POKE 30237, 230
POKE 30238, 16
POKE 30262, 230
POKE 30263, 8
