Re: Penetrator key hack - fire and right separate

Excellent fix, great job R-Tape.
Penetrator is one of my favorite games and is now even more playable.
Here's the original tzx file with the fix applied.
Enjoy. :)

Re: Which games really pushed the Speccy?

Have any games using the Bifrost/Nirvana engine yet been mentioned? Some of those surely 'push' what the Speccy can do, given that its hardware was not designed to do what some of those titles actually achieve, colour-wise; and certainly I never expected it to be capable of such feats. Indeed, some...

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

Nope, not lost interest at all. I would love to see a full blown Chess game created with it though. Paddy Way back a couple of years ago when I first began trying to compress the whole thing from the original sprites created in the early 90's, which were 4000 bytes alone!, I envisaged needing at le...

Re: Which games really pushed the Speccy?

For me it's obvious that Knight Lore pushed the limits. It pushed the limits as they were in 1984 when it was released. By the way, Manic Miner pushed the limits of 1983 too ;) None of earlier games had so much sprites on screen or similar ingame music. Nevertheless I remember reading that it has q...

Re: Which games really pushed the Speccy?

btw, has anyone already mentioned Knight Lore? He always has to be on the list, when we talk about this topic. Did Knightlore really push the Spectrum hardware? I mean, really? No, it did not. It pushed back the boundaries of what was considered possible, yes, but games like HoH and Batman came lat...

Re: Which games really pushed the Speccy?

Dynamite Dan II, for me.
Eight massive levels, with a great number of beautifully animated sprites and different ingame melodies, are truly impressive.

Re: ZEsarUX-7.0

Last night I finally got the chance to install the Zesarux v7.0 on Raspberry Pi 3 with the latest Raspbian Stretch and the general impression is that everything works very well. Of course,some emulators are very demanding (QL for example) and dont work at full speed, but most others do well, even wi...
