Re: Hibernated 1 for Spectrum 48/128k, Tape and +3

Hi, @PeterJ , just uploaded a new inlay using the upload facility. I think I made it twice! :oops:

Looks good Juan, I can see Spy vs Spy III and Supergran. It won't be this update, but it'll happen :-)

Re: Spectrum highlights 2018

2018 saw me buckle down and sharpen my assembly skills to write myself some software (and some music) to enable me to perform a gig using two 48k spectrums. Hi uglifruit! This is proper cool.

Re: Site Updates

One note: this Bandersnatch barcode program better would be classified as "demo", not "simulation" I deliberated between the two genres, and opted for simulation because it was a pretend representation (like the teletext simulator). But since you mention Ralf, demo does feel more correct today. Dem...

Remove FLASH because it's horrific,
Do you mean the command only, or the property as well?

Just had a play and 'found' 4 levels. It takes a bit of getting used to but it's fun to run ...
