Re: The best Speccy game by Beyond Software: discussion

I loved Lords of Midnight and still do, so that gets my vote. I played Shadow Fire but I think I teleported in the wrong order which was bad. I finished Enigma Force though which was ace. I didn't like Doomdark's Revenge as much. The reduced draw distance, the mist, the colours, the names weren't as...

Re: Introduce yourself!

I now have a ZX Spectrum 48k mug... but also this website was really useful:

http://slady.net/Sinclair-ZX-Spectrum-keyboard/layout/

It's even got an alphabetised list. I now understand WHY they had keywords (to save memory). At the time I thought it was just to save typing :)

Re: Introduce yourself!

I do find it strange. Even back in the day when I had a +2 I rarely used 128K mode to type things in. Looking at it now, I think having the cursor in amongst all the lines just feels weird. The actual typing of PEEK and POKE isn't too bad... it's the "where is the cursor what am I doing" stuff that ...

Re: The best Speccy game by Rack-It: vote

I did NOT finish Into Africa, as I found a sentence in the .z80 that says I didn't... I even asked the Hewsons if I knew anything.

I'll do a full map and make it available. I'll also do a video but might leave THAT as private as the graphics are a bit...

Thread necromancy... I might do a video on Into Africa as I just sank a huge amount of time over Christmas into potentially finishing it. I think. It's hard to tell.

Re: Currah µSpeech support in emulators?

Spectaculator apparently does, but I can't get it to do anything. I ticked the button and everything and was trying out the Currah program and it said nothing. You can try it free for 30 days as well, I think. Which Spectrum model did you have activated? The µSpeech doesn't work with 128K Spectrums...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello! I had a ZX81 and then a +2 back in the day, and got back on the BASIC horse this year. I typed in the Usborne "Write Your Own Fantasy Adventures For Your Microcomputer" programs. I wanted to add them to the World of Spectrum website but I didn't realise it was... not updated. Would it be usef...
