Re: leaked pic

Note to self: to properly fake renders, have some glossy surfaces smudged with fingerprints. =)

Re: Update 42 - New graphics mode

I threw it as a joke, but since we're talking, it should be relatively trivial to do hardware dithering with animated pattern, but that would only yield 1-2 bits of more depth..

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: 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.
