Re: Wireless keyboard?

There are wireless PS2 keyboard/mouse combinations available out there, but it's harder to find since it's tech from the early 2000. Try Ebay. Yup, I have one...hadn't thought to try it though!. it has two PS2s plugs, one for keyboard and one for mouse (which is a trackball type thing built into th...

Re: recommended joysticks...

Re: Sad news regarding the Sinclair Vega Plus...

There are just the couple of dozen prototypes they knocked together..it's another ploy...shipping these so they can say they have delivered something...the next you'll hear from them is "no further shipments as we read the complaints and will work on fixing them!"

Mine didn't work after the update either. It was due to the NextOS folder being renamed to NextZXOS.

To fix you need to edit the autoexec.bat file to point to the correct folder.
