Thank you :D

Just to clarify things, Great Fire Of London .TAP is not a bugfix per se, i.e. the game itself is not bugged; it is a working .TAP version for emulators and interfaces which do not support TZX files. The old .TAP file, inherited from the WoS archive, does not circumvent the game's custom loader and will never work.

The Seto games and chapters 3 and 5 in Cousin Horace were affected by the "AGD ULA Plus bug", a flaw in the game designer software that under certain circumstances, e.g. when running on a ZX Vega, made the game be displayed on the screen in false colors.

Cousin Horace chapter 2 revised edition also had a bug which on 128K models could lead to crackling parasite sounds being played in the background. This has also been fixed.

Latest update applied. Many thanks to @Einar Saukas, @pavero, @druellan, @R-Tape and everyone else who contributed to this update.


New entries:
Una Bruma en Stratford
The Curse of Trasmoz
Nixy and the Seeds of Doom
Rodmän
Paintball 2048
Rescate en Marte
Targ
Speccy Invaders
2048
Quite a few of these are payment only, so we're a bit short of downloadable files this time.
New utility:
AGD Mini
AGD Mini is another version of AGD by AGD Labs that uses the compact language of ADGX and have 8 x 8 pixel sprites instead of the usual 16 x 16. It's new to ZXDB, but it started being used earlier this year and 3 games have been made with it so far (this, this and this).
uMIA!
Bunkered!
It's just a blank ID at the moment, but this one is quite a sexy uMIA. It started with this thread by @Slarty. Gilby and him are now in touch, and hopefully this will result in usable TZX and screenshots soon.
Additional:
Updated files for Cousin Horace

@R-Tape : And what about Bruce Lee RX? Is it still ignored. ;-)
