Re: Spectrum Next... Did you miss the Kickstarter? Would you still want a Next?

The basic Next will do if there's no Pi0's available. As long as it comes in the glorious case. I'll be mostly using it for music, and a bit of coding.

Re: WIP - Walkabout (z88dk)

Had a couple of experiments with the tune for ingame. I searched the code for the PT3 and did a binary replace to play my experiments. Simple.

A jolly ragtime is what I've decided works well. If it's ok to support, I can do a Turbo Sound version 2xAY, for a piano-like rag.

Re: WIP - Walkabout (z88dk)

You can have it anywhere you want. And use your own im2 routine to call play or mute, select a different tune etc... You don't need to use any paging either. This example was written a while ago for someone who had no memory left for a tune, so needed the player and music in a 128 bank. Edit: Get th...

Re: WIP - Walkabout (z88dk)

Thank you for offering. Yes something cheerful and jolly would be good as this is a cheery little puzzle game. I'm not that familiar with Vortex Tracker. I've included Sound Tracker music before but that had to be ran through the ST-Compiler to generate something that could be played back on interr...

Re: WIP - Walkabout (z88dk)

Any one fancy doing a loading screen or some nice AY music for this? :) I'll have a go at some AY music. I write AY using Vortex Tracker. I'll just submit the .pt3 files, for title music, ingame music. I have to start writing something appropriate first. Something cheerful and jolly? Let me know if...

Re: ZESARUX: NEXT EMULATOR

Not sure how to combine SID with AY yet.

But a bagpipe sounding tune is easy to do. It's just a single tone droning, with the pipes playing over the top. Add some highland style drums and voila.

Windows 8.1 too...

Re: ZESARUX: NEXT EMULATOR

Be good to hear some of your tunes Frank on the enhanced platform, perhaps you could maybe put one aside for one of my future projects? :D Sure thing. I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see my name on the credits for Sewer Rage, Willy The Wasp :D . I missed the Kickstarter, was away from internet fo...

Re: ZESARUX: NEXT EMULATOR

I hear Lyndon Sharp is writing a tracker for the Next?
Hoping it will support all 3 AY's and the SID.

Was wondering if this would be available to use on this emulator when it's released?

Also, waiting for SID support in ZEsarUX.
