Re: I made a new App for the Multiface 3

Well, i've made a new version of my MF3 Easter Egg finder, with a pause added (as requested by druellan). After pressing the MF3 button, it now waits untill you press space before returning to the game. I incorporated some of djnzx's advice and removed all the calls, and replaced them with relative ...

Re: I made a new App for the Multiface 3

Thanks for the very detailed reply djnzx. 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 ;-) http://www.worldofspectrum.org/pub/sinclair/...

Re: I made a new App for the Multiface 3

It just occured to me that my MF3 easter egg finder is a really short basic listing, so i could easily share it as a type-in by pastign it directly to this forum thread. I quite like that idea as it feels very old school, but I'm not sure how to get my basic program out of my spectrum emulator as a ...

Re: I made a new App for the Multiface 3

Thanks you both for the replies R-Tape / dnzx :-) I've not seen zx-art website before. I can see i'm going to waste hours of my time working though all the demos, and and music on there. so many of the demo writers pull off effects that are just mind boggling to me TBH, and the artists mastery of at...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with #: re-run vote

Hmmm, I'm new to the forum (just joined tonight), so didn't vote in any of the previous polls. From the "D" list, I would have been torn between DeathChase, Dynamite Dan, Dizzy (although TBH, while I'm quite a big fan of the Dizzy games, the latter games were much better than the first one - I think...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with #: re-run vote

The only one on the list that i've ever played was 180. I remember liking the speech when you hit the top score, but i didn’t really like the way the hand bobbed around on the screen.

Why isn't 3D death chase available as an option?

I made a new App for the Multiface 3

Evening all, I have no idea if anyone will be interested in this, but i thought it might be nice to document it somewhere anyway, so here it is... I became quite adept at spectrum basic when i was a kid many years ago, but only ever learned a very small bit of machine code. I recently got the urge t...
