Re: esxDOS for Next and TZX files

For a player of old speccy games, 7MHz is totally reasonable. In fact players of old games would not find any advantage On many games turbo mode has no effect as they are synchronized with the screen retrace, others are affected negatively (not playable or very hard), and only a few bad games that ...
