Re: Help needed connecting the Next board UART to a PC RS232 serial port

General questions about user hardware work 1. I would like to know the "Edge Connector" of 'ZX Spectrum expansion bus' and the standard of cartridge size. 2.

Congratulations on the implementation of "Tile Map Graphic". ( Additional note: About 80 digits character tile map map is implemented) Although I speculate on specs, high-resolution graphics in the world of ZXSpectrum (I imagine displaying the kanji text first, but there are also 'GAIN GROUND' or 'B...

Re: Musical potential of the NEXT.

You're not the first one to suggest enhancing the existing AYs :) About the implementation of FMSound of ZXSpectrum Next, the circuit size of "SID" was too large to be drowned.

Re: Atari-SID (conversion of TRD to NextZXOS)

I will correct the above post. I was deep reading. According to the document contained in "atari-sid.zip", it seems to be a demonstration playing pre-created PWM sound data .

Continued. About "sprite function" Several months have passed since someone told me "specifications have already been confirmed."
