Re: Easiest way to change AY I/O ports in a game?

Thank you. It's great to know those modified games are still hosted somewhere. If I wanted to search for those LD and OUT commands just by PEEKing the RAM, what decimal values would I be looking for? And once I had the decimal address, how would I modify the ports if I just wanted to use POKEs? As s...

Re: Cant find the program with digitized music?

I don't have the answer, but I'm bumping this topic in hopes of finding out. I'm a fan of digitised stuff on the Speccy, even more when it involves the AY chip.

Easiest way to change AY I/O ports in a game?

Was looking at this list: http://zxspectrum48.i-demo.pl/48K_AY_games.html And then it occurred to me how wonderful it would be if these games could be played on a Timex TS2068 or TC2068 with a Spectrum emulator cartridge. These computers have an internal AY chip but it's mapped to different I/O port...

Re: Microhobby Cassette #2 (april 1985)

It's great to see these again! Is the text in the text adventure compressed? If it's not, we could translate it to English. My favorite Spanish text adventure is La Aventura Espacial (for a pair of reasons), but this one looks interesting.

Things I'd like to see one day: -A Battleship-kind game, where each player has his own Spectrum and display -Turn-based games, where each player has his own Spectrum and display -2-player games, where the game runs on one Spectrum and one display, and the second ...

Any way to speed up Automania?

Automania was one of the first games I enjoyed playing back in 1987, but always thought the game was a bit slow. Turning the music off doesn't really make a difference. Does anyone know if the game was slowed down on purpose? If yes, a few POKEs could do wonders.

I really like the graphics, the loading screen, and the use of colour. Impressive work.
