Re: Spectrum Sabre Wulf microdrive

I seem to recall that someone was making these (and other microdrive versions of Speccy games) and selling them on ebay some years ago.

Yet another one for on the ZX81 membrane keyboard. Bought in Utrecht in 1984. I don't know who made it.
That is a Filesixty keyboard - basically a rubber mat similar to the original Spectrum which sticks on top of the original ZX81 membrane.

Re: [NEW ZX81 GAME IN DEVLOPMENT] - Mage: The Enchanted Crystals

Unfortunately, there is no option since the EU (and various other countries around the world) have brought in tax on digital items. The main issue is that the EU and one or two other countries did not use a minimum threshold, so as soon as someone sells something digitally for €1 they have to work o...

SD Card Duplication

If anyone is making games for ZXPand etc and is interested, I have now acquired an SD card duplicator and can duplicate SD cards at £1 per card (plus postage) - obviously you need to supply the cards at that price :)

It is certainly quicker than making them one at a time via my PC card reader

Welcome back to the fold - it has been a while since I came across anything you had written and you have produced some really nice games - I loved the ZX81 ones :D

Re: Help with my new Spectrum

The simplest and most obvious question is to check that you have connected the ear lead correctly - it needs to be on the output from the cassette and plugged into the EAR socket on the Spectrum. Volume on a cassette player needs to be around 80% of max - you should be able to hear the loading sound...

Re: Dead 128k +3

No - the drive LED only comes on during access - check the cable connection to the 3" drive.

Re: Rick Dickinson passes away

I too was surprised by his passing - he was always approachable and seemed surprised by how much enthusiasm there was for his designs. Personally, I owe my business to Rick, in that it was the design and pleasure of getting out the ZX81 and later the QL from its box; which kept me interested in comp...

Re: SINCLAIR ZX SPECTRUM The WIRELESS RECREATED

Ah - the Elite "Recreated ZX Spectrum" - basically a bluetooth keyboard. They are OK I suppose - Elite did not really help matters by pulling the apps from the Apple store etc shortly after the Recreated ZX Spectrum was launched and not even supplying all of the backers on the kickstarter supposedly...
