Finally - I think it's at release candidate stage. I can't find any more bugs and I've added high score saving so I'm calling it done!

Link to final version is here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1trrBuU ... sp=sharing

The git repo is now public here https://github.com/dave18/BubNext

Enjoy

Dave

Fantastic work. Thanks for this. Been playing all through the beta releases. I never thought I'd see such a close conversation on a Speccy!

Save game is not going to happen I'm afraid, it's just too complicated and there is not enough room left in non-banked ram.

To ensure the scores save you need to wait until the flashing logo is displayed after a game finishes before power off/reset. Sometimes the game goes straight into attract mode after a game finishes and the scores won't be saved until it loops round and the logo is displayed.

Can someone post about Bubble Bobble on ZX Spectrum Next Farcebook?

Seems a shame few will hear about this!

@AA Thanks, all I can say is it is just as well I didn't realise quite what I was taking on when I started elaw I never would have!

@Tau Ceti I'm happy for anyone to post about it on Facebook, I haven't simply because I don't have an account or want one.

Link taken down for now while I work on a patching system so that the original arcade roms are needed. Should be back soon and a bit more legit. I'd like for it to be included in the main distribution is possible.

ok, new version available here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rVzgUw ... sp=sharing that doesn't include the arcade ROMs.

The zip file also include a patcher util and a readme with both patching and game instruction.

Is it possible to host this on an actual software repository now rather than just on my GDrive?

Thanks

Dave

I would create a github or gitlab repository. Those are ideal as you can make automatic zipped snapshots of releases, and attach binaries and ther files to them. You can also make readmes or wiki entries in markdown for the instructions. You don't have to include source in a git repo, many people just put the binaries and documentation.
