Re: Help needed with a unstable +2 grey

I have a +2a that has a noisy tape player when playing. Its pretty quiet when fast forwarding and rewinding. I wonder if they are just a bit noisy?

Re: Lardo buys another zeddy

I only have Minestorm at the mo (its built in) and have the overlay. It looks better without on that one I think.

I can see there are a few multi-carts out there. May have to be a purchase at some point.

Re: Lardo buys another zeddy

The Vectrex now there's a strange beast. I have it on Pi emulation but cannot get to grips with it at all. I think it is one of those things you need to see properly not via an emulator.

Re: Lardo buys another zeddy

It was either Shirley (who apparently had anger management issues) or Killed By Death lyrics. Maybe the latter would have been more multinational? And not just over 55s! :o Rubber key Spectrums have always seemed hard work. Just finished a +2A and that was really nice to work with. Even the tape pla...

Removing one, that's the easy bit.
Easy? Easy! And, at the risk of sounding like Shirley Crabtree, easy!?!

Re: Lardo buys another zeddy

The nice shiny ULA is now sat in a socket in preparation of a vLA81 arriving. First time I have been brave enough to remove a working ULA. And it still works!
