Re: 240p test suite equivalent for zx spectrum

For colors, if you’re on a 128K machine, you can just power it on while holding the BREAK key. This will bring up a color bar test screen all these years of owning this computer, and I never knew about it! Thanks. I don't know the commands to draw a circle and border in +3 basic, but I'll read the ...

Re: Spectrum +3 disk images via Kryoflux

Is Kryoflux better than using samdisk with a real +3 disk drive, plugged into the FDD header of a PC?

Re: Double buffering on the Spectrum

Even when I was a kid, I remember playing batman the movie and thinking how no sync on 50hz with all that tearing (at 12.5 or 25 fps, not sure which) was like eye cancer. Especially on the batwing level, I nearly had a seizure :lol:

Re: Raspiboy

DSiXL with ZXDS is the ultimate handheld Spectrum combo, outstanding quality of emulation on pixel perfect 256x192 screen resolution, there's nothing better than that. Flash card can be bought legally and if you use it only for ZXDS, which is free, you can be relaxed, Nintendo will not send you to ...

.trd to .dsk

I've been looking at some of the russian hacks of games, intended for pentagon and scorpion. They are all for larger disks in the .tdr format, with about 10 games on each disk. Is it possible to pull the individual games out of this format and turn them into .dsk images to be copied to a spectrum +3...

Re: Converting .dsk to tap with dsk2tap

It's pretty awesome that they made a save game feature that saves to the disk, but I'm not sure if anyone actually tried this on a real spectrum +3. Because unfortunately, if you load your save, the disk continues to spin until the next save point. This might not matter with an emulator, but with a ...
