Re: Just got Spectrum +3

Well I cleaned the old belt off the pulley and capstan and in the drive. I lubed the worm drive and cleaned the heads, and installed a brand new belt. Now the drive works as a treat and you cant even hear it read or write! I was able to format, read and write my floppies! So I would say mission acco...

The DIVMMc has 2 joystick ports. Will my Atari Wico Joystick work with those ports?

Re: Light Guns and Speccy

Thanks Mark and ZXdunny,

I have 2 CRTS, one is VGA and the other accepts Composite or Svideo.

I have my eye on Cheetah Defender Light Gun. I have a +3 speccy but as we all know there is no composite.

How many games are there for this light gun?

Thanks

Light Guns and Speccy

I am thinking of getting a light gun for the spectrum.

So these questions:

Any SPectrums with Composite or do I need to do the mod?

Which spectrum is the best for composite and light gun?

Are there enough light gun games to make it worth while?

Please let me know your opinions

Thanks

Bill

In particular, you may want to investigate the +3e
