Re: Interesting game maps?

I like maps where each room is clearly part of an overall picture. Fantastic Voyage is a good example. Astronaut Labyrinth is another one, if a bit samey.

I never realised until I read 5minRetro's first post that Alien 8 was a similar example. Also never spotted the Sabrewulf scaling before.

Re: Did I miss something yesterday?

A new record: Most users ever online was 441 on 15 Jan 2020, 17:21 I noticed that too. Great! ...definitely interested to know what has driven it.. But we all know it'll ultimately be something really mundane! Place your bets.. I bet it's some 'blue skies' computer conference somewhere, that happen...

Re: SC Advanced search?

I wouldn't be so sure that one box and typing "<1985" is more intuitive. "From" and "to" seem quite obvious. If you want it to be the year 1985 you set it from 1985 to 1985. I'm not saying it isn't intuitive. I think adding more boxes would make it flabby, and could be a pain if you want all years,...

Destiny Mission looks stunning without color clash, and I'm wondering about Arkanoid 2 :lol:

This is a hoax. Everyone knows that Destiny Mission doesn't have any sprites.

Aye here's the main site.

Denis made this thread here. It adds a few things about machine type.

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

(thread move by R-Tape)

Aye, unless someone suggests otherwise I can create a new ID for this. It might not be in the next update as I need to find out about magazine links.

SC Advanced search?

Ralf’s comments brought this to mind again. It would be really great if a developer with the right skills (and time) could create a ‘more advanced search’, that should appear on a separate page to the current one when selected. Something like the one created for Martjin’s WoS. However, it doesn’t l...

Re: The Computer Cookbook

EDIT: And it's here: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=9235 So a book somehow needs to be linked to the tape. And maybe the entry adjusted. I don't know if it's possible in ZXDB. Thanks Ralf. I've no idea how to do that. I'll see if the others do when I send my stuff for the next ...

Re: The Computer Cookbook

It looks like we have another cookbook! Moja Gospodinjska Pomocnica (My housekeep in Slovenian). The book comes with a tape of recipes apparently. Shame it's mia, a I don't have many 1980's Slovenian receipes in my repertoire. And it's got the best cover ever! Looks like a MM/JSW inlay. https://arch...

Re: Retrogaming in Germany

If you know of any homebrew Spectrum games from other Soviet-dominated states during that era (Czechoslovakia for example), I'll find a way of squeezing them into my video, with appropriate context. There's Galactic Gunners . Here's a quote from Stack's review on Spectrum2.0. He says more on this i...
