Re: The best modern Speccy game beginning with B: discussion

Bouncing Bomb - Redux is a superb arcade game, fantastic graphics and animation. It is very difficult though, but still extremely playable and repetitive. Warcraft clone Black Raven is also great, wonderful music, I dont know if theres a version for the original Spectrum models or just for Russian c...

Re: Mister Beep - Rubber Love: any way to download to a real Speccy?

I might have missed what you're after, but it's a track as part of the intro to the Speccy game ZEN II . If you load that into your speccy you'll hear it as intended. Yes, I want to play it on my actual Speccy rather than listen to the MP3, but that ZENII intro track isn't Rubber Love - it's not th...

Re: ChesSkelet: micro chess program - 363 Bytes

Great stuff, really.
It's a real pleasure to read these two amazing chess treads.
I especially look forward to the tournament games, between these chess giants under 1K. :)

New Spectrum ports for TI99/4A!

Let's see some great Spectrum ports for TI99/4a. Interestingly, TI99/4a has the same resolution (256x192) as Spectrum and that is another reason why these conversions are so faithful. However, the greatest credit for these games goes to the fantastic programmer Rasmus Moustgaard, who has made the mo...

Re: 3D Chess 2K18

Aaah, I see what you meant now. I've no real hardware readily available to test it on and no CRT TV anymore, but looks great on an Emulator! Yes, you can test this ULA behavior with SpecEmu, which fully supports it, as well as some version of Spin. In SpecEmu, you must enable Ula Artefact in the Di...

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

SID was never promised. It was experimented with and a demo shown. People cried it was C64, a prominent AY musician gave up his pledge over its possible inclusion, the prospect of not being allowed to call it a SID was raised. You are kidding?

Re: ZX Spectrum Next Discussion

It's not just the Right Cursor key that doesn't work reliably, it's quite a few composite key presses that are prone to failure as you can see from the picture and mentioned in the latest Update. They are going to try three different designs for the new contacts and hope that one of them does the j...
