Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

Right now I'd be happy with just the board.... The board only option has been delivered a long time ago, over 300 of them went out - it was said at the time if you dont want to wait for full kits back the board only - I'm sorry you didnt take that option, I did try and wrangle you a board at the ti...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

but the board is done—we're guaranteed something aren't we? The board is bought and paid for yes- also boxes, psu, manuals, SD cards, Pis etc But I am sure everyone would prefer it in the case and with the keyboard as promised. my guess is that we have a bunch of good guys getting increasingly stre...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

The failure to renew the Certificate for their main website is just another example of the apathy and lack of concern for this project. Is one negative way you could look at it, the other way is that the new cert had been renewed but incorrectly applied and the person who can remedy that has been o...

Re: Slipknot on a spectrum 128k

Kowalski I have been listening to the Atari compilation all night, it really is amazing to hear high quality PWM just like the Atari ST.

Please let me know how this is done, this is exactly what I’ve been looking for!

Re: Slipknot on a spectrum 128k

Thanks :) Although we know that Poke was the one who pioneered Atari tricks on Speccy, I have to stress that no single bit of his routines or any other tools or knowledge was used to make this demo.

Re: Slipknot on a spectrum 128k

Slightly offtopic - check this this recent Spectrum demo, the music may really surprise you. As I understand it's AY mixing samples with regular "instruments" plus some very tricky timing which enables some animation on the screen meanwhile. http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=75986 It's a great de...
