Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with C: discussion

We should actually give Pete the week off for this one. C is one of those cases where you either know straight off that it’s Chuckie Egg, or you have a think about it and then vote Chuckie Egg.

Re: XBox One controller

Thanks Mat, I don't think it's that. There are so few option when you try that button, mostly banging on about 'Game Mode'. I wonder if it's a setting in the game itself. The DPad and the thumbstick work in the XBox menu. It's a 360 controller btw, not an XBone. Ooof, no more screens tonight though ...

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

It was a bit painful to hear, but I endured the full length of both. If you do not notice or distinguish the dissonant notes, you will have a problem composing any music. Now there's a glowing encomium! :lol: I agree marsdust is wrong (though think it has sections of potential), but morningsun soun...

XBox One controller

I'm trying to play Hydorah with this controller and it doesn't recognise the thumbpad, only the thumbstick and I can't get used to it. It's the same with my few other dos games. The fire buttons are okay. I've looked in the windows settings and it registers u/d/l/r for the thumbpad there, so it does...

Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

Ta for the feedback. marsdust sounds really good from the 6 second mark til the 15 second mark, when that new tone comes in it ruins it So I hit paydirt for 9 seconds? That's progress! RE the other track - I think the note length is constant in AY Tracker, so I'm going to blame the tools on this one.

Re: Interview with Bo Jangeborg

I'll ask the creator of the video if he is still in contact with Bo and if he'll allow SC to host Fairlight. Ah, aces, R-Tape, in that case I'll put your name down for purchasing the movie poster print. I've got to put my child through university somehow... If he finds a demo of the multicolour gam...

Re: Interview with Bo Jangeborg

Cool video (and extra screen), I'm just about okay with the elevator music (well I habituated to it). Bo seems a really nice guy, he must be in his fifties now and looks in good condition*. He couldn't complete Fairlight! I find it really strange to release a game where even the author can't complet...

The main non-technical one is that there should be no flagpole.
That's just nitpicking.
