I don't see the point of commenting here then. You can now go to the Uno forum and there is no need for you to be here. We ...

Re: How much longer?

I'm thinking of selling my pledge - if anyone's interested, let me know. I'll gladly buy your pledge. As for JoeZX above he's an obvious troll which is about to be hit with a tremendous disappointment when he sees everyone get a Next he didn't pledge for :) But that's okay, thanks to Mike Dailly's ...

Re: TurboSound Control Interface

Apart from the apparent irony of a Russian claim to copyright (not to mention the fact the USSR doesn't exist) and the fact that you're asserting copyright upon an extension of prior art (which is totally invalid to begin with but I digress) and -obviously- the fact that putting a bunch of AYs toget...

Yay! It's a text mode! (with very colorful text)

Re: Update 42 - New graphics mode

I do apologize for the delay. Life happened as always.
It's all there now, new distro, new info (both on Next Reg and as a new page describing the new graphics mode), please enjoy :)

(And do not forget that the git has always the latest and greatest)

Cheers!

Re: Update 41 and "2.00.X."

Re: TBBLUE IS NOW ON GITLAB! VERSION 1.0 MILESTONE REACHED!

Re: Picoblaze and Turbosound FM The Z80N and the extra hardware is definitely not PicoBlaze. The FPGA is pretty much full. With a PicoBlaze you are able to fit a TurboSound-FM but what would you do with it? That doesn't mean that you cannot have a simple Z80 and a simpler spectrum AND a TurboSound-F...

Re: DEFPROC, ENDPROC and PROC in Next Basic

I have posted the relevant chapters publicly in the Next Facebook group when I was still on Facebook. Look for them and you'll see the commands covered. I'll post them here in the next few days as well as they're a bit more descriptive than Garry's documentation and they include examples as well
