Re: New Database Model ZXDB

I suppose admins have right to edit every post. It would be wrong to overuse this option but in this case it could be justified to make a small edit. Add "Fixed" or something like that in the bottom of the original post. It could work without any changes to the forum engine, I guess.

Re: Counting T states in Excel

An interesting approach but wise men generally don't do it this way ;) First when you get more experience you'll remember most of these execution times by heart. Then in most cases you just don't count these tstates. You write something that seems to be good enough, run it and if it actually runs go...

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

Human Killing Machine:

is one on one fighting game. So the better cattegory for it would be
"Arcade Game: Solo beat-em-up"
instead of current
"Arcade Game: Gang beat-em-up"

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

Some more discoveries about Genus ( https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.php?cat=96&id=2012 ). So I made a rzx recording of it: http://www.rzxarchive.co.uk/g.php#genus Quite interesting to watch, lots of nice inspirations in the levels coming from games like Cybernoid, I Ball, Manic Miner and other...

Re: The Bear Essentials - C64 Manic Miner-like

It looks like a nice game. Nothing original but well executed. Seems also quite easy which I would say is a good thing.
