Hi from Sweden

Postby TheSwedishLord » Mon Aug 17, 2020 10:11 am

44 year old developer, started my path with the original ZX Spectrum 48K and 48K/128K as a 7 year old geek 😁

Just backed ZX Spectrum Next issue 2

Long time now since I used A ZX Spectrum, what do I need to catch?

Well, if you want to start coding in Basic, then the ZEsarUX emulator is probably the best.
But if you want to get into assembler coding then the CSpect emulator is easier and better to use.

Then get the latest distribution of the Next firmware. It contains lots of example files to get you started.

Then you'll have a head start coding for when your computer arrives in a year or so.
