    Re: do you love the zx spectrum

    do i love the spectrum i sure do.

    i have tons of games for it.
    it was always my fave retro console.

    and yes i do have it.
    its so iconic.
    the colours on the side etc.

    games such as jet set willy and the horace games.

    why bothe with an emulator when u can play the real mccoy.

        i love the whole loading caper mate.

        some games took near 10 mins to load on it.
        untouchables in particular.

        it loaded per level.

        and my speccy has no probs loading.

          The Spectrum was what first got me into IT. Waiting 7 minutes for some of those 128k games to load was half the fun!

            When I work out how, I'll have to put a silent simulation of a scpectrum animation simulation I did up.
            I did it usising Xara Photo And Graphic Designer 7 (It wouldn't let me put sound in) but I reccomended it to anybody who wants an alternative to Paintbrush.

                You were lucky there bud,
                I had a 48k model, so all those large games were multi loaders, i.e. you had to load each level.
                However, I will always love the Spectrum, although I do tend to emulate these days, as I have no patience for loading, I must have wasted weeks of my youth (in total) waiting for all those games to load.
                Does anybody remember a game called 'Soft & Cuddly' ?

                  this is the game you mean.
                  http://youtu.be/GxmAur6ag88

                  amazingly i still have the patience for the games to load.
                  i just love watching them load.


                  perhaps one reason you emulate is you do not want to wear the speccy out.

                        Now, come on. Why hasn't making your own compilations been mentioned yet?
                        I knew using tapes to load had their faults (such as being chewed up, becoming loose, snapping, becoming twisted,the loading times, etc) but wasn't the infamous microdrive far less reliable?

                          Re: do you love the zx spectrum

                          one game i remember was the untouchables every time u won a stage the following stage would load before u could play it.

                          i dont mind waiting for the games to load i get a real nostalgic trip out of it.

                          its amazin after so long these games load first time most times on my 128k.
