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 ...

Re: Converting .dsk to tap with dsk2tap

OMG, I'm so stupid, I wasn't using audacity right. Instead of pressing pause, then pause again, I was pressing play, and it was returning to the beggining of the wav file. It works perfectly. I have castlevania on REAL +3 disk! So chuffed right now :D Thanks for taking the time, I got the same resul...

Converting .dsk to tap with dsk2tap

I am trying to write the Castlevania: Spectral Interlude to a spectrum +3 disk. I have downloaded the .dsk file and converted it to a .tap file with dsk2tap. This program claims to "convert a .DSK image to a .TAP file, which when run on a Spectrum +3 recreates the original disc". The program seems t...

Re: Questions about DivMMC future, or similar devices

Yes, I already asked him. Waiting for more info. It's not really clear whether it can. Seems to be quite obscure, as I can't really find any info out about it. Thanks again :)
