Re: Spectrum musicians - how do you do it?

Sound itself conveys a mood. If you pay attention to it, you will see (hear) that, before there is even a melody or a sense of progression, even the simplest case of having a continuously playing 'sound' of 2~3 notes put together might sound happy, or sad, or scary/awkward/menacing. Or something el...

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

I mean something that would explain doing this out of the blue 3 months in, of course. There's typically some kind of a precedent/context wherever a serious change like that is imposed. What happened here? What did we miss? I set this parameter back in November, nothing has changed. Oh. I see. Some...

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

I think of forum threads as conversations that take place in time, so I don't understand why it's 'giving up' anything. In the end, forums are just another form of information exchange online, with its share of conventions that IIRC have remained more or less the same since the late 90's, with all ...

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

Frankly, that is an impressive number of people in one place just willing to voluntarily give up on whatever they write. Anyway, it doesn't look like this thread is worth further time, so I'll keep this brief. - It would probably help to hear a real explanation about why this became needed in the fi...

Re: Feedback wanted! Best choice for bullet clarity and appearance

Voted the first option. 2 and 3 are more or less instances of the same thing. Unmasked printing looks easier on the eyes, but frankly I don't think you want more of that going on. Not sure how feasible this is, but you might want to try keeping the default bullet size but making the black outlines w...

Re: Sound libraries, any examples.

AYFX and BeepFX are tools made by Shiru. I think the AYFX player had some issues, see on my post a link to the routine fixed by a zuno forum member. I made something called mFX last year, specifically with Cgonzalez's Gandalf game in mind. It's a system for combining AY effects+music in the best wa...

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

One of the reasons for this thread is precisely the fact that, as far as I can remember, there weren't any sort of limits of this sort on the old WoS whatsoever. On the contrary, it wasn't until the forum imitation of the new 'WoS' that this practice really took root and became a noticeable annoyan...

Re: In nihilum reverteris - new Polish text game from Yerzmyey

Gamebooks were very popular in the 80s, but I don't remember any Spectrum game designed as one of them. Anyway, it's a very interesting idea. I remember this one too, completed it with some effort BITD alongside a huge English dictionary we had at home (a lifeline too many times) just cuz I liked t...

Re: Cannot edit older posts.

Maybe I’m missing something though, why would you want to be able to edit anytime? Personally I'm missing the transition from 'people should be able to edit their own posts anytime' to 'people should not be able to edit their own posts anytime' for the most part, I suppose. As well, a major website...
