Re: Good fire animations

it would be nice to see the animation frames, somewhere, in a PNG (all frames) or animated GIF. Some of the references, we can only see a blurry video. Games like "Balachor's Revenge", and others, which are hard to get to the place where the animation is, can't be seen with the attention they deserve.

Re: Disk drives

Alternatively, you can use something like my NOXROM Cartridge, with either 128K, 256K or 512K of ROM, addressable in 16KB blocks. https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=241 But this is specific to ZX Spectrum, and requires a ROM interface, like "ZX Interface 2", "RAM Turbo", "Ke...

Re: Neo Geo Mini

I'm not sure, I'll like an arcade in such a small factor :lol: Doesn't seem to be the best possible form factor, for something like this. It takes away, part of the feeling, of playing in an Arcade. It's also single player, apparently, given the controls available. No connection between 2 devices is...

Re: Online Emulation Update

JSpeccy is written in java, by José Luis Sánchez. JSSpeccy is written in javascript, by gasman. Separate emulators. There are two emulators, with a very, very similar name, that looks like a typo ?

Re: Online Emulation Update

Very nice feature ... However, for me JSpeccy is too slow (Firefox). JSpeccy don't works as an applet. You are using another emulator, I guess... Obviously not, it's a Javascript emulator that runs on the browser. Applets, also run on the browser, when the required Java plugin is available, but mos...
