Re: Unreal Speccy compatibility

Yes, ZXMAK can emulate the 48K/128K properly enough. UnrealSpeccy is a worthwhile emulator for more exotic configurations nonetheless. As of now, it is the only one which allowed me to run Time Gal under ATM-Turbo emulation. By the way, do you know anything about more recent versions of both progra...

Re: Unreal Speccy compatibility

In the meantime, I found and tested timings from the standard 48/128 models, but obviously emulation of the original models is not fully implemented because theres no support for contended memory. With original timings it is possible to repair eg border in Aquaplane, but many other games still not w...

Re: A Yankee in Iraq, a 50 fps SHMUP

I like this new version indeed, the game is now definitely improved on several levels.
Gameplay is still simple but addictive, it's not an easy game but it's certainly challenging.
Well done!

Unreal Speccy compatibility

I tried yesterday to set the UnrealSpeccy emulator to use ROMs from the standard Sinclair models 48 / 128K, but still some games don't work well. For example, I used the Old Tower, which works but shows certain color artifacts. I know there is a special Pentagon version for this and some other games...

Re: Game of the day...

I agree that the color scheme is not ideal, though I would prefer to have configurable keys because I am used to playing Spectrum games on the keyboard. ;) My guess is, that the authors wanted the players to be fully painted in white gear and to keep the court in white too. Black sprites would proba...

Re: Game of the day...

I played "International Tennis" from Zeppelin Games today and I can say it's great. Fast and smooth animation, computer is a tough opponent even at the easy level, it's interesting and addictive. The only downside is that we cant redefine keys, QAOPM combination is not enjoyable, so the joystick is ...

Stunt Car Racer - BBC Master!

One true gem for Acorn fans, a fantastic Stunt Car Racer conversion for BBC Master. Amazing stuff, the frame rate is better than in the Amiga version. One of my favorite games, which I played to exhaustion back in the day, but this version outperforms everyone else. The game was made by the same tea...

Re: New game: REVERSE PONG

Very nice idea, but pretty hard to play, too much constant tensions for my taste. ;)
Technically very well done for Basic compiled game.

Re: Old Tower C64!

Yes, looks like it is.
Maybe Denis can confirm with some more details about this conversion.
