Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I'm a Next backer (board only, received it more than a year ago) and was a bit critical of some decisions, but the latest updates changed drastically my opinion. The latest core and firmware are great, they even added ULAplus (though it's not explicitly advertised as that) and some other great thing...

Re: Pacman's Revenge details

Hi! I'm reviving this thread as I managed to recover a tape image file of this game, from an old C60 tape with other pirated games.

I've already sent it via the ZXDB edit form, but I'm sharing it here too :)

Re: GLUF

Amazing game. The use of color is incredible, even better than El Stompo!

"Sabotaje": missing author

Hi!

Listening to the last episode of the "El Mundo del Spectrum" podcast came to my attention that the game "Sabotaje" was written by Andres Manuel Garcia, the same author of "Sabrina".

In ZXDB "Sabotaje" has the author field empty.

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

It would be possible to run a reduced version of the next on the uno, for example, and such a thing might appear within a few days of the source being made public This already exists, but with an older version when both systems shared the same FPGA and it was called TBBlue. http://www.zxuno.com/for...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I backed the ZX-Uno and that turned out to be spot on and got delivered to schedule. I still use it regularly for ULAplus games. The ZX-Uno is AWESOME. The team spent almost 4 years developing it and then crowdfunded it to make a production run. Also, it's really open source, so anyone can use the ...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Do you think it should have been aimed more at the generic retro market rather than as a successor to the Spectrum, a machine that with the appropriate core "can become any of the old machines you used to love as a kid?" How does having a Spectrum-specific keyboard pan out if you want to use anothe...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I have the board since earlier this year and so far, it's a solid machine. I fully upgraded it (2 MB RAM, RTC, Wi-Fi) and everything is working OK. It lives inside a clear case from Retro Radionics (looks great!). The only thing that disappointed me is the lack of ULAplus, and only from "political" ...
