Re: ZX HSC Round 5 - Chuckie Egg / Laser Snaker

I enjoyed playing Chuckie Egg, as usual.
Can't say the same for Laser Snaker, though ...
Here's my final score:

Chuckie Egg - 31040
Laser Snaker - 2440

Re: ZX HSC Round 5 - vote is now open

I agree with Juan, Terra Cresta is a fantastic port, but Chuckie Egg would be better for competition.
btw, too many great games here.
I hope that those who are not selected now, will be in competition again...

Re: Spectrum Next core on MiSTer fpga?

Meanwhile, the contention model on MiSTer has been fixed, so now the ZX core should be cycle accurate. That is very good news. Can you do some tests for that latest ZX Spectrum core ? We have a separate topic for emulator testing and it would be good to have fresh data for MiSTer. https://spectrumc...

Re: ZX HSC Round 3 - Commando / Rainbow Islands

These two games are not my favorites, but I tried my luck: Commando: 23400 Rainbow Islands: 28610 Commando is harder, but more playable. Didnt much enjoyed in Rainbow Islands, tbh... I was pretty busy last week, so my first score remained the only one, but still enough to not skip this round. https...

Re: "Very British" games

The Plot, of course.

The object of the game is to help Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of

Re: ZXBaremulator 3.2

As for me, the tape browser with saving support is the only thing, that is really missing.
Everything else, including snapshot support is just optional...

A million bucks in just 12 hours. Impressive.
Obviously, the price was chosen very wisely...

Re: Spectrum Next Kickstarter 2 going live tomorrow Aug 11th 2020 9pm BST

The initiators of the second kickstrter obviously showed respect for the original bakers, who took much more risks and waited three years for Next.
The current bakers risk almost nothing and $400+ is a fair price.
