Re: New version of the Professional Adventure Writer?

I'm not too familiar with it unfortunately. I think this modern incarnation has moved to the PC with a more programmer like interface but the authors are still saying it's easy to pick up if you know PAW already. Maybe I can get Tim to stop by if he knows about it. Tim created all these tools back i...

Re: Latest Distro ... Is it the latest Distro ? Core 3.01.05?

Let me know if the hdmi sound works again. If it was working before 3.01.05 and stopped working in 3.01.05 then it should be working in 3.01.06 and later. We tried to experiment with increasing the audio volume output but some hdmi tvs didn't correctly decode signed audio at max volume.

Re: Latest Distro ... Is it the latest Distro ? Core 3.01.05?

The official distribution has been tested and is ok for general use. It is at 3.01.05. Gitlab is holding a version of things at 3.01.08. Gitlab is where things go before being made the official distribution so that people can help in testing. 3.01.08 was going to become the official distribution but...

Re: Hi, i am MDA.

That's interesting. I noticed on Mister FPGA that with HDMI, that screen drawing seems to regular speed up and down a little, it's quite noticeable. I then tried connecting it to a VGA monitor and games runs perfectly smooth. I'm not sure why that would be the case. I'm not speaking from personal e...

Re: Hi, i am MDA.

There are some recent threads in the ZX Spectrum Next sub-forum about getting hold of a machine but it amounts to ebay, snapping up an extra after KS2 completion or hoping for another KS. The N-GO is a KS1 clone and is 100% compatible with KS1 Nexts. KS2 Nexts will have an improved pcb that fixes so...

Re: Spectrum Next. Delivery Date?

I don't think that is going to be possible because the keyboards have already been queued up for manufacture in order to lock in a favourable price. You can't make small numbers of these in another order. There will be extras made to cover faulty machines. Any left over after shipping will go on sal...

Re: Spectrum Next. Delivery Date?

with hindsight, probably a bad time to order anything with a build date further down the line (what with COVID and Brexit) is there a parts shortage because of Brexit? No it's a worldwide semiconductor shortage that is affecting a wide range of parts. In large part because of covid but that is not ...
