Topics I've Started

Games Review logo for Gibraltar magazine

17 September 2015 - 05:22 PM

I'm buying a magazine business in Gibraltar, which will cover all lifestyle related subject, including monthly game reviews.

I wanted a retro JSW style banner for this section, and have had a couple of attempts myself. Both incorporate my 2 favourite games - JSW and Booty.


If anyone can come up with a better JSW design based around a Gibraltar theme, please feel free to create and post here. Any help would be much appreciated....




ZX Spectrum VEGA - JSW 2 not working

25 August 2015 - 03:41 PM

I just received the Vega last week, and it is great to have my hands on a Sinclair product again. I was a little disappointed with some of the 1000 games it comes free with. Most I've never heard of, with the exception of a few old classics, Ultimate, Gremlin and the Skooldaze collections.


Most absent is JSW and MM, as I know Elite has the rights to these games, and are bringing out their rival Speccie this year.


I've since downloaded them both from the WOS site, and they work perfectly on the Vega. Unfortunately JSW 2 doesn't work as good. For whatever reason, the Kempston joystick default setting for the Vega doesn't seem to be recognised for JSW 2, which is annoying, so the control pad is useless.


A few of the Willy spin-off games struggle on the Vega too, although Join the Jet Set works fine (which I think is the best unofficial JSW game anyway).





The mysterious Room 47

23 August 2015 - 09:10 PM

I am still intrigued by the infamous Room 47, and why Smith created such a room, to the extent of having it as one of the numbered screens. You can drop from it into Conservatory Roof, but you cannot access it by jumping up from that screen (using the long jump poke). which makes me wonder if there was any other way of accessing it from another room.


Does anyone else have any info on this room?
