Re: ZX Spectrum Tom Tom

I looked, I think you would need to have a self boot .elf and disk image similar to the PI or Hombrew channel on WII, then you will have the environment to run Fuse.

My TOM TOM is in a renult and has a remote control so I suppose you could map over to that.

certainly possible, I would think.

If he were in America, they would have had a day named after him, and we would not hear the end of how they invented the Computer. :?

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 104

Top marks from me, I found the Pong article very interesting again just getting under the surface enough to show the limitations faced by the creators without getting too technical, the same as Citadel in the issue before. Necessity is the Mother of All Creations, and its more interesting to discove...

Re: from the forum issue 104

I liked Skool daze and back to Skool , when I first loaded up Skool Daze, it was on my Computer Hits compilation, I just watched the demo for a few minutes in amazement, the speed of all the kids walking around was like my very own Grange Hill episode, absolutely brilliant!

Re: Official Feedback Issue 103

Enjoying this issue, the screen shots on Akira page 24 and Alien syndrome on Page 52 were very well presented, this is how the screen shots of games should be presented in my opinion, I think Corbra on page 92 may have been better with the same treatment.

Re: Official Feedback Issue 103

Have to Say this issue is the best Issue for many months, I compared the content from last issue to this one, the content I would class as must read and read of of curiosity was similar, but the look and feel of the magazine was nicer. Looking forward to reading this one cover to cover. Oh and I got...

Re: Issue 102 Feedback Thread

I used to like the Your Sinclair caricature covers in the early editions, the Young Ones and The Ghosts and Goblins ones were great. I have no opinion either way about the latest cover,I thought it was okay but I can see all sides, I find the White on any magazine cover is a very difficult look to c...
