Re: How much longer?

Demanding that something exists before it does in reality, isn’t going to get you what you want, because reality doesn’t work like that. Sell your pledge or ask for a refund, if you don’t want to wait any longer. There are a lot of people eager to buy your pledge. If you ever back another crowdfundi...

He’s been asked to provide input several times, and he won’t!

It reminds me of a teenage goth girl who listens to music so much cooler than everyone else that they’re not allowed to hear it themselves.

Perhaps, before you buy a cable or change your display, you could run your test PLAY program without a display at timing 0? You may write your program in C:/nextzxos/autoexec.bas, so that it runs automatically on boot.

Re: The pitch of the sound is strange. (NextBASIC "PLAY" statement)

The default is "7". If I change this, it may not be displayed on my HD TV. Yes, I'm afraid this is true. HDMI timing seven has a master clock frequency of 27MHz. This is almost certainly why your note frequencies are not at concert pitch. These are the master clock frequencies for all eight video t...

Re: Greetings from Malvern

People sell their boards on eBay fairly regularly. The price is quite variable, especially if two people escalate into a bidding way.
