Re: My new game - CSSCGC 2018 entry

I am the official loser of the CSSCGG! Thanks for the heads-up R-Tape . The email account I used when I entered this compo is now dormant, it was an old ISP account I no longer use, meaning I missed the announcement by a month it would seem :oops: I will contact Shaun immediately. I am not sure whet...

I bought a very similar looking device for use with my Spectrums. Unfortu...

Re: Clive Sinclair: hero or zero?

beanz Maybe I am way too harsh on the Microdrive. I had a Waferdrive system which is very similar in operation and had many hours of joy with it. Killing my buddies 3D Ant Atttack microdrive cassette was an absolutely awful experience, so it might have tainted my view of the device. The setup belon...

Re: Clive Sinclair: hero or zero?

I loved my Spectrum, so for that he is a Hero. The C5 was a cool idea, there is still a fan base who ride around in the vehicles. Much like the 128K Toastrack , C5's fetch good money on eBay due to scarcity of good examples. The handheld TV's...OK they were a doozy. For me, the biggest error he made...

Re: #BeepolaFriday

Brilliant!! You captured all of this track really well, synth phone noises and all. ELO was a big part of my childhood. I used to listen to home-taped ELO on headphones plugged into the Ferguson tape deck that I used with my spectrum. Mono fantastic.

This is a great thread.

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

How the bloody hell did you manage that?! I have no idea. I certainly cannot claim to have avoided the game on purpose. I have loaded Manic Miner on to my Baremulator and have given it a play. My original choice would have been Micronaught One followed by Movie, two games I spent some hours playing...
