ZX Vega+ Discussion

For experts to discuss very technical stuff and newbies to ask why the Spectrum they bought off ebay doesn't work.

I've got a DS lite and occasionally play games ZXDS games which I find pretty good... But let's face it, a lot of Speccy games were hard. And crikey, they're so much harder on a small screen.
3DS/2DS XL is a much better option (I first played in a DS model, it was OK, then 3DS XL, amazing, so going back to the first model was hard! :))

Yep, you have the joystick on the 3DS/2DS XL models, which makes diagonals a breeze. And the screens are bigger. Love ZXDS on my 2DS XL.

I play pretty much all my spectrum games on the ZXDS and I've managed to complete a lot of them (30+) over the last few years. There's only one game that gave me some problems, the trench lasers in 'Death Star Interceptor' are too quick for my DS lite screen and they pretty much blur into the background (a new 2DS XL should have a more modern screen and the problem may not exist there).

I did wonder about the XLs. I think I probably need to consider an upgrade ("...my eyes are poor, my nose is knackered..."). I did manage to get to the third screen on Batty though, which is about as far as I've ever got in the past... ;)

At the moment it's not a major issue as I tend to use it most on long bus journey, and I just end up playing Chaos 90% of the time. :lol:

I've just received notification via Companies house email alerts that Paul Andrews and Chris Smith are now directors again at RCL.

That is remarkable. There's a lead-time before records at Companies House are updated, so this happened at least a few days ago. This is the first mention I've seen of it. Though, granted, I haven't spent much time in the Facebook group recently, and the last statements from Paul Andrews and his colleagues are that things were happening that they couldn't talk about yet. I assumed it was around courts, but there should have been another RCL Shareholder Meeting at some recent point, and nothing has emerged from that.

I'm curious about whether anything RCL-related is salvageable at this point. Also, whether Levy has managed to extricate himself.

Wow, that's great news...I think.

I can only assume at this point that they have plans to "save the day"...otherwise why would you want to take over. Could be great news for backers....obviously some sort of financing would need to happen as all the money is gone but a commercial product might help secure new financing.
