WOOT! XMas Tape Magazine

Post by R-Tape » Tue Oct 24, 2017 3:16 pm

What's that? Too soon? Come on mince pies are in the shops!

At the start of December I'm planning to release Issue 1 of the Woot! Tape Magazine, Issue 0 being last year.

It'd be great if anyone here was able to contribute. I'm after:

-Demos
-Music, AY or Beeper
-Art, SCREEN$
-Games (including minigames and demos), but I'd like them to be exclusive to the magazine until after it's released.
-Utilities
-Puzzles, puzzle ideas - e.g. Speccy crossword clues.
-Cartoons, or cartoon ideas that I can draw see last year's for examples.
-Anything else I may not have thought of!

The magazine and games that I make for it will be designed with the regular 48/128k Speccy in mind, but submissions that utilise the Next's features are also welcome. Perhaps even an article on the Next?

Submissions don't have to be xmas themed.

Here's a link to Woot Issue 0 if want ideas. Think 16/48 Tape Magazine.

Cheers!

(Mods - if there is a more suitable place for this thread could it be moved? I didn't put it in the ZX-Spec & Clones section as it could be relevant to the Next).

Hi R-Tape,

Only saw this post now. I hope I can find some free time to whip up a little beeper tune.
Also, just checked out Issue 0, and I think I can answer the question in the letter from "A Beepola User, Lancaster": To control the note length in Beepola, you can use key A, which inserts a "note-off" command in the current channel.
