Re: Maybe a new section?

I guess we are trying to talk here about demos while d2010 is trying to talk about... well, something else ;)

d2010, if you want to raise some topic, please make a new thread. But maybe consider having some rest first,
your hallucinogenic videos seem to have impact on you :)

Re: Maybe a new section?

Yes, there wasn't much interest. But if you want to talk about demos feel free to post in Sinclair Miscellaneous for example.

Re: Ad Lunam

And if somebody missed it, we have 50th anniversary of landing on the moon today. So I guess we have here some kind of homage from Speccy community. And I understand why it was released today as version 0.1 ;) Management games aren't my cup of tea but I checked this one and it's very nicely performe...

Re: 5 games/utilities preserved

Well, I guess something went wrong.

It may be too late but I'm reuploading the spreadsheet anyway:

Re: I need to make this

INC simply is replacing the 0 that is in the rightmost position with 1. There most be a 0, 'cus otherwise there'd be a 1. And there cant' be a 1 because ... oh sh*t**. Ok, this can actually happen. Than we change the 1 to a 0, and see, if we can a execute our cunning plan on the 0 on the left hand ...

Re: I need to make this

I always believed and still believe Spectrum Basic is quite good.

You can easily mix text and graphics. You can easily use colour. You can declare your variables anywhere with any names.
You can use UGD. Believe me it's not granted and many Basic dialects miss this or that functionality.

Re: I need to make this

I believe Basic is the best solution for the original poster as he doesn't have much experience with programming. I could never understand why in beginner's threads like this one people are suggesting advanced solutions which involve assembler etc. You don't help the poster this way, just make him c...

Re: Jonathan Cauldwell (ZX Spectrum Dev) – Interview

Ralf, I think Jonathan left the scene, look at signature here in SC: left the spectrum scene in December 2018 Jonathan states his position regarding the scene on his itch.io page... Well, it looks like I missed it. And that he actually "left the scene", whatever it means. We definitely had some ver...

Re: I need to make this

Yes, when Basic is playing BEEP, nothing else may be done at the same time. So you need to do BEEP PRINT BEEP PRINT BEEP PRINT and so on :) Or if you want to make it much shorter and prettier but also a little bit advanced you may use a loop. Store note values and texts in DATA instruction Use READ ...

Re: Jonathan Cauldwell (ZX Spectrum Dev) – Interview

I also believe Jonathan hasn't left. He even was posting on SC, for example here: https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=424 But yes, Vega+ saga, must have made impact on him. At some moment, when people were taking sides, Jonathan decided to give his support to David Levy and th...
