Re: Game of the day...

Had a hour's blast on Loony Zoo last night. It's certainly one to file under 'charming', but I keep returning to it. The difficulty is up to usual early spectrum standards (difficult, often frustrating), but once you get used to its unusual physics you can get several levels in.

Re: Playstation Classic announced

Looks pretty neat, but if it's not easy access to a massive library of games then I'll pass. Having said that, if it only had Einhänder, R-Type Delta and Tekken 2 then I'd be using my left hand to wrestle my right off the 'buy now' button this December*. I can't tell from the site: how are new games...

Hi people!

I know a programmer who is doing now a text adventure with PAWS and needs a graphic artist for the screens.

Anybody willing to draw a little? :)
This sounds interesting. Can you give a bit more information?

Re: Myla Di'Kaich

Loads fine. Turn off the Fast Tape Loading option in Fuse. (Might have to play the “tape mechanism” manually in the middle of the process, though.) Cheers, good to know it works, but I'm still struggling to make it happen in SPIN, FUSE or Spectaculator, with varying tape options. At least the snaps...

Myla Di'Kaich

Does anyone have instructions for Myla Di'Kaich. ? The snapshot works fine, but I can't get the TZX to load. Is it faulty? I quite like this game. It's fairly standard early 80s platforming fare (released in the late 80s), but it has so much personality that it stands out, to me at least. The combin...

Re: Pripad II - not Slovenian game

We have the opposite case now! This game isn't Slovenian but Slovak. And I am sure of it. :) https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=6821 Bloody hell not another one! I wish you Carpathians would make your minds up. Cheers. This looks like an unusual game: the loader has Slovak, Russian...

Re: Inlays and Instructions

Cheers, I've collated these now and they'll be in the next update.

Why have you included Popeye 3? How does it improve on the file that is already there?

(Popeye + wrestling? WTF!)

Thank you very much @PROSM that's great. I'm sure @R-Tape will add it to his spreadsheet for upload to ZXDB.
Aye will do tomorrow. Cheers.
