Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Do you need actual physical Spectrum Next hardware to work on these ULA implementations and test them out or can they be done via software emulators? Because if you need the hardware you can kind of see the flaw in asking people who haven't got it to do it. It's largely a paper and pencil exercise ...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

"professional malcontents" oh dear, paranoid much? From what I've read there's a lot of tongue in cheek ribbing on the run up to the next promised update. Are you new in the spectrum community? There is a small number of trolls who take every opportunity to attack for their own entertainment. This ...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Maybe it's time to stop setting any deadlines, then? Especially if you are not sure, you will fulfill them. Responsible people dont do that. That's not possible either. Maybe you've forgotten what happened when there was no estimated delivery back in December? A constant barrage of people asking wh...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

"Still waiting on news on the keyboard. There are a few different threads happening in parallel. Changes to the hammer size, domes, contact design which requires new tooling. Hoping to have results soon!" Backers were told a month ago that minor changes were being made to the contact patterns on th...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Yes...? Oh well, I'm off to drink 500Ml of beer! ;) lol. I'm with you - I know the importance of using proper units. Having a mega- anything even something that looks as small as an "l", probably means we won't see you until next week. Most importantly, once launched, the Spectrum Next will be full...

Re: I made a new App for the Multiface 3

The multiface is indeed triggered via a non-mascable interuprt, but the last page of the manual states... "to return from your program, to the program you stopped, use RST 0" so i just did what the manual said ;-) The multiface rom probably contains the right instructions to return to the caller at...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Personally, I think ULANext is not the same as ULAPlus as it's just essentially a completely new Video Mode for the Next making Next only games look better, more unique and ultimately less like a Spectrum. I think you have a misunderstanding of what ULAnext is - it serves the exact same purpose as ...

You are kidding?
Full SID support, can only be a great bonus feature and cant hurt anyone. :?
Prominent immaturity and stupidity, I would say...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

That one line from the Kickstarter Campaign appears to have been the biggest part of the delay. Yet other features that were touted at the start have been dropped or quietly forgotten - ULAPlus, 14MHz boost mode, SID chip support, Rex Next, the new Dizzy game, Nodes of Yesod. The team clearly have ...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Does this mean that Q2 2019 remains as the deadline for delivery? They are still trying to get Q2. It's impossible to give firm deadlines as the project is at the mercy of time allocated by an external supplier. The project is just too small and must live off scraps given it. This keyboard thing sh...
