Re: Games & SD Card

I agree. This seems a bit too vague. Like worldofspectrum has got permission to host certain software, it doesn't mean you automatically get that permission too, even though you got it for free.

Re: Some suggestions for core 2.00.xx changes

Code: Select all

foo = (bar && baz);
.. assumes foo to be 0 or 1, whatever bar and baz were.

Re: Some suggestions for core 2.00.xx changes

I did notice in z88dk forum that `bool hl` is of considerable help to C compiler (not really sure why, but if there's any will to help CC devs, this one seems to be on top)
In c, booleans are defined as 0=false, any other value=true, so there's a lot of checking if integers are zero or not.

Re: Update 41 and "2.00.X."

It's anticipated that people will develop their own cores and make them available (or not) and put them into one of the available 30 slots in the flash. I've never heard about this before. What slots are this? Are they held on the FPGA (because I thought that was nearly full by now)? The way I unde...

Re: Think BIG and go RETAIL

Wasn't "zx spectrum vega" the "speccy mini"? And that came out pretty much before the nintendo ones.. I have the impression that didn't fare too well.

But I'm pretty sure they won't have anything against going retail if you're offering to bankroll them.

...or get it and then flip it on ebay for $1000. Selling at cost when you know they will be sought after doesn't make a lot of sense.
Not everyone wants to go through the hassle, especially if it requires international shipping.

Re: Update 39

I'm starting to get a sneaking suspicion that it's not shipping this summer.. =) Glad to see it's coming together. And the positive side for the hardware delays is that it has given more time for the firmware/software side to progress, so the initial experience for people who get their hands on thei...
