Currently out of stock though, although I am sure Piotr (Zaxon) will make some more if you ask him :D

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.

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

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...
