Re: The best Speccy game by Ultimate: discussion

Unfortunately I didn't play all these games back in the day. The one I played the most was Jetpac, loved the wasps and taking care of the flower on Pssst. Never got far in Underwurlde though always enjoyed its graphics and the bounce off challenge.

Re: ZX Recoloring project

I see the author didn't get much enthusiam on WoS forums. He provided a modified emulator, an editor and a modified game to demonstrate his technology. I find interesting to apply new technologies upon the original games. Things like Obo's tools,VR, AR, sprites recolouring, filters, netplay.. who kn...

Re: New Database Model ZXDB

Apparently only a few magazines have tagged pages. For instance it doesn't seem to work for Crash issue #84... Footers on Crash 84 follow a different pattern: january (black square) numberpage If you know the ascii code of black square should work https://archive.org/details/crash-magazine-84/searc...

For example, a search link for page 54 on a Crash magazine containing the quoted te...
