Re: My new game - CSSCGC 2018 entry

Seems to me the whole winner/loser thing was the wrong way round anyway. Seems okay to me! That's part of the gag anyway innit? Either way, these days it seems to be a case of finding a willing volunteer! I've emailed MonkZY. If he's not up for it shall we see if we can find a volunteer here or at ...

Hehe brill. Would be a good theme for a Friday quiz.

I can RoM, DTD, Sir Fred? And there's something on the right I can't make out.

Didn't. It's included it as part of the original Magical Tower. I assumed it was the same ID. Do you think they should be different?

Re: Site Updates

Ta Peter.

Also - I forgot to mention the bugfixed .scl and .trd for Al's Double Bill have been added.

Also 2 - I couldn't get Battle City, Boom and Popcorn to work, so they have no screenshots. If anyone is more familiar with Trd and can provide some then please do.

Re: JSW Central - a website dedicated to Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy games for the ZX Spectrum

My question is: Is there any equivalent of 'Adult status' on SC? Is it that I'm not seeing the download files because of some setting I don't have turned on, or is it just that the files are really missing from SC? Any games that are listed as adult in ZXDB are not shown in an SC search (there is n...

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

Not easy. Again I've had to decide how much to factor in sheer enjoyment over technical achievement. As impressive as Castlevania and Complica DX (sorry Einar!) are, this is my top 3: Catacombs Of Balachor Circuitry Crimbo So Catacombs gets my vote ( Circuitry came very close, but I decided it was t...

Re: Mr Do coming soon to Spectrum

Superb game! Well done fellas.

Plays really well, looks great, and a nice plinky plonky AY tune. As we hoped, the colour clash of the white player sprite works perfectly as a miner's torchlight.

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

I don't think there's a lack of concern for the project, my guess is that we have a bunch of good guys getting increasingly stressed out thinking "OH GOD WE WANT TO DELIVER THIS BUT THE REALITY IS A NIGHTMARE!". I'm surprised that something as fundamental as a keyboard is hard to do these days, but ...
