Re: ZXBaremulator v3.H(ikoki) beta

I have been giving the emulator some proper usage and have found one bug. On the 48k emulator, after a reset (ss+r), the symbol shift key becomes stuck on when you turn off the alternate keyboard. This bug seems to be 100% repeatable. Power up the Pi -> Enter alternate keyboard (ss+cs+enter) -> Rese...

Re: ZXBaremulator v3.H(ikoki) beta

I have a PI 3 and have tested with a Recreated ZX Keyboard. This emulator is awesome, a real thing of beauty. I also have a PS3 controller so this is a perfect set up for me. Powering on the PI is uncannily like powering a real Spectrum. I love it. I have no bugs to report. The extended keyboard mod...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next

Is the Kickstarter campaign now closed? At this time, there does seem that there is no way to place an order for a board-only next, Amirite? The more I read about the Next the more I am gutted that I was not on the scene when the kickstarter was fielded. I have no interest in the boxed and cased ver...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next

don't think there are any plans for a retail release That is a shame, I guess I will not be getting a Next any time soon. Seems odd to make a brand new Spectrum and then keep it to a very exclusive club of people. I did think the 'accelerated' Next seemed a bit overpriced considering all you get ex...

Re: Prize games

Hareraiser had the golden hare of masquerade or £30,000! I remember reading Masquerade as a child, the artwork was wonderful. I googled it because I never did find out if the prize golden hare was ever discovered. The chap who created Hareraiser apparently cheated his way to the hare by gaining som...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with G: discussion

@PeterJ The game was called Troon, and was made by the same software house - Hornby Software.

Re: Golf games

I hunted down a golf game I used to play with my dad. He was a keen golfer but had little interest in anything else computer related. He bought it via a small ad for seven quid apparently. Played through the very BASIC looking course several times, all of the actions were performed via INPUT stateme...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with G: discussion

I have a fondness for a game called 'golf'. Pretty sure it was written in BASIC and was bought from a small ad in the Sinclair User. It was the only computer game I ever played with my Dad. For me it must be Grand Prix simulator based on hours played. Great Escape was groundbreaking though, very ori...

Re: Fixing audio on a grey +2

Thank you, I think the WOS thread may be the exact thread I am trying to find. I will most likely make the relay mod to cut the tape player input when not in use. I used a cassette audio adapter (dummy cassette with a wired tape head inside) to load up some games, it worked well but when I amplified...
