Re: Little bugs in the database 2

Desert Island SCREEN$ doesn't give appropriate credit to djnz or uglifruit. My fault - sorry fellas.

Author 2 should be @uglifruit : ID 18714
Author 3 should be @djnzx48 : ID 18778

Re: Radiation Run

Not really a bug but I´ve found this small classified in the Sinclair User Magazine 39 from 1985, page 130. https://i.postimg.cc/VrMDnFSv/107740672-136292.jpg Searching the database I can't find any "Radiation Run" listed, which is expected, but perhaps worth to have it listed just as a reminder th...

Re: New version of 'CharAde' BASIC Enhancer

I'd also add that not enough screenshots are being shared of these Charade demos! I forget if I've seen these before, but it's great to see the engine finally being used properly. I hope some of these turn into finalised games. http://stonechatproductions.co.uk/zxgames/gameimages/CharadeDemo.gif htt...

Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with L: vote

Cripes. I wasn't following the votes during the week so that's a surprise!

I certainly wouldn't argue if the top spot of the proportional vote got it in this case. Alessandro's games are pretty consistent in terms of quality, but his first game, this one, is my fave.

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.

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..
