Did you get a shipping email? Or did it just turn up?
I did, yes. But it went into my Junk folder so only found it after it arrived!

Re: Posting forum images (embedding)

As a pixel artist, I'd never ever use JPG just because how much it butchers pixel art...unless it's in such a high resolution where 1 pixel itself is about the size of your face. I'd always go for PNG or GIF if it's for animation due to being lossless. If you go further and look at the size of the f...

Re: The Curse of Rabenstein

I’d love to do some graphics for adventure games but, sadly, I’ve had to turn down a couple over the past year.
Once Melkhior’s Mansion is done then mibbees, after an extended break, I’ll see if there’s any going out there that interests me that need some.

Re: Atic-Atac Isometric Version

The idea would be that you could switch the view to see more/get access to further parts of the play area.

Re: Atic-Atac Isometric Version

We had discussed it very very briefly last year and again this weekend where I said I’d pencil in a start for next year. You would get highly stylised isometric graphics - Spectrum palette no colour clash, of course - if we went down that route, though ;) Still, only after Melkhior’s Mansion is fini...

ZX Spin RZX Playback

Hello, Can you fast forward a RZX playback video in ZX Spin to get to a specific time? For example, the Dun Darach RZX is, like, over 2 hours long according to the YouTube version but I want to get access to a few minutes at a specific time - to a time just shy of the 2 hour mark - but I don't want ...

Re: Royal Mail Retro video games stamps

These do look great, and I love that this is a thing. But the game/character selection seems... uninspired or even lacking? In terms of stature in UK gaming, Dizzy over Miner Willy. Really? Both Dizzy and Miner Willy should be there but you’ve only got so many stamps and it’s the Royal Mail so ever...
