Re: KICKSTARTER #2 POLL

Posting on this thread in case someone is following it and missed the news.. Anyone who missed out on backing a ZX Spectrum Next in the last kickstarter, now has a chance of getting one they're back on the shop available as pre-order ( as we still have to know how many want them and make them yet. )...

Re: CSpect vsync

When emulating stuff, threads don't usually matter much, because it's pretty difficult to offload the tasks to several threads. What you're looking for are cpu single thread perf and pipeline length, as emulators tend to trash the pipeline a lot (so, a p4 would be worse than p3, as unintuitive as it...

Re: The Next family tree

I've updated the family tree with a better image of tbblue and also added zxuno there due to the lores mode. I'm sure there's tons of other stuff that could be added, and especially the clone pile probably has a bunch of cross-breeding going on. Link is still http://sol.gfxile.net/temp/speccy_family...

Re: issue1 vs nextpi2

I'd just say "write", unless it's an image, in which case I guess I'd say "burn".
