Re: Definitive list of games incompatible with +2A/+3 and of compatible versions (if any)

It’s likely the malformed TZX file. There are a few floating around that prose problems loading on real hardware. Incidentally, M.A.S.K. is one of them. This is loading the original cassette. I know for sure the original Gremlin cassette fails on the +2A, and worked okay with a Sony TCM 939 cassett...

Re: Definitive list of games incompatible with +2A/+3 and of compatible versions (if any)

I'm having a problem getting Gremlin's M.A.S.K to load on a +2A Spectrum. Today I've tried the Byte-Back version which looks to use the same loader as the original Gremlin release. It's the green & black stripey loader, where the loading screen loads line by line from the bottom upwards. The Byte-Ba...

Re: Definitive list of games incompatible with +2A/+3 and of compatible versions (if any)

Two recent games for me that don't seem to work on a +2A, but worked fine on a 128k: Bedlam Original GO! release: Game loads, but noticeable graphics corruption on the menu, and crashes when starting a new game. I haven't tried the Sinclair User cover-tape version. Guerilla War Original Imagine rele...

Re: New Upload & Edit Facility

Ok, first question. If I want to remove a game from a group, for example, I want to remove https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=2778 from "vector graphics" group, how I must proceed? Seems to me that a "no group" option should be present at the top? Or a checkbox? Now you can only ad...

I have tried to upload one missing Czech game - Transfer.
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/edit/en ... 72a3dde50d

I added four files - TAP+TZX+2xSCR, but only the last one was uploaded I guess. ;)
Thanks for the bug report. I'll look into it. Not sure what's causing that yet.

Another thing. Seems that it is required to upload a file, even when you're only editing an entry.
That's what Rorthron reported earlier too, and should now be fixed.

Re: New Upload & Edit Facility

Hi Rorthron, thanks for the feedback. 1. I can't upload amendments to existing entries without attaching a file. The following error messages appear at the bottom of the form: Notice: Undefined index: fileExt in /var/www/zxdb-edit/src/ZxdbEdit/EntryForm.php on line 301 Notice: Undefined index: fileE...

Re: ZX Vega+ Discussion

I've just received notification via Companies house email alerts that Paul Andrews and Chris Smith are now directors again at RCL. That is remarkable. There's a lead-time before records at Companies House are updated, so this happened at least a few days ago. This is the first mention I've seen of ...

Re: ZX Vega+ Discussion

I stopped following this saga a long time ago, so I'm not sure why my games aren't on the list as I gave permission years ago and never retracted it. Seeing the finished product I should be thankful... I never retracted my permissions either. On the contrary, I actually spent time over a year ago c...
