Re: SC Friday quiz: 'press a key to start' quiz

Re: Christmas 2018 Charity Prize Draw

Sorry all—we misjudged the interest in this. It looks like we’re going to have more prize-givers than entrants! 1 person has entered so far (we already chipped in, but can’t win a prize), so we can’t really call it a raffle. Hope there’s no objections if we say that we’ll need at least 8 people to e...

Re: O-EYES

Very nice little arcade game. I hadn't heard of 'Eyes' before; playing it reminds me a bit of Dingo. Your version is good fun. It seems rock-hard at first, but it doesn't take long before you're running rings around the eyes. It'd be interesting to see a version with smooth sprites. Ta for the game....

Neat. Another good year. I would add Double Bubble, Walls of Eryx, Seto Taisho and Snake Escape to those.

Dark Castle is by kas29, nay Mirrorsoft btw. Mirrorsoft are the famous publishers of Zythum, by Mirrorsoft.

Re: Vortex Tracker help

.AY files are generally used to store music rips from games; they contain the original music handler code and the accompanying data, so the music player is essentially an emulator without video output. As such, I don't think .AY files will open in VT. I'm not too knowledgeable on the subject howeve...

Re: Vortex Tracker help

It's still 'Vortex Tracker Help', but a different problem, so I'll post it here.

Someone has provided me with an .AY file that gives the following error when opened in both VT 2 and 2.5.
Text module loader error

Module not found (line: 1)
Any ideas?

Re: Add loading screen to .tap file

It may not be the easiest way, but I use the new-oldschool method in an emulator. Before starting you'll need your loading screen already saved as a .TAP (ZX-Paintbrush can do this), and your game code already saved as a .TAP. 1-type in a BASIC loader. This sets things up (border colour, clear etc),...
