Re: Definitive list of games incompatible with +2A/+3 and of compatible versions (if any)

Actually there isn't any, since (almost) no one these days uses real Spectrums other than for playing games, or watching the odd demo. Development of newer software is carried out on PCs so there is really no need to do things the old way.

Re: Definitive list of games incompatible with +2A/+3 and of compatible versions (if any)

The SpecDrum software doesn't work with the 2a. In 128 mode it crashes on load, and in 48k mode no sound comes out of the SpecDrum device. Thanks for the info. However: - The SpecDrum software is not a game. This is a list for games only; - There are incompatibilities between the +3/+2A and some ol...

Re: Trying to identify a game

Sounds pretty much like Mask to me. Even the key assembling part fits in.

Re: spectrum +3 "all-RAM page test failed"

Hola jgh73, The original Elite release of Bomb Jack won't load on a +2A/+3. You will need to download the MCM re-release, which is compatible with them (more information here ). I also own a +3, and two +2As (+2Bs more precisely since they mount a V4.1 ROM), and a DivMMC EnJoy. I did not find any is...

Re: Possible unknown titles!?

Here is a huge collection of programs and other Spectrum related content on this Spanish site: http://trastero.speccy.org/ I am surprised that you are discovering it just now. El Trastero is a well established website and has been running for years by now. Our Spanish friends here will be familiar ...

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

A bug has been found and corrected in Al's Double Bill (details here). Please substitute the .TRD and .SCL files with those provided in the archive downloadable from my website.

Also, could the files for Sinclair User 127: Great Eight 16 be added to the corresponding entry?

Re: New version: AL'S DOUBLE BILL

Hi everybody, I just found that a bug in the game management program for Apulija-13 128K TR-DOS version always made the Italian language version of the game (not of the user interface) be loaded, regardless of what language had been chosen by the user. This has been fixed. The .MGT version was not a...

Re: Using TR-DOS software on real hardware +2e, DIVMMC

In my experience, machine code TR-DOS file management, performed by using the "tokenized" commands as well as direct calls to the interface's own ROM , is possible with the DivMMC interface and ESXDOS v0.8.5 and later. My games released as .TRD files employing both methods ran without any issue on a...
