All I know from Googling is that I would need to buy a particular game from the eShop to use.

Wii U softmodding is very cool too. There are a ton of videos for all out CFW softmod (Mocha or Haxchi) with addons such as Nintendont. And the "no-mod" lite. You want me to find a decent upto date video for you?

HARDWARE/SYSTEMS DISCUSSION / ZX Spectrum Next - a quick overview
« Last post by AndyRCM on May 01, 2020, 06:36:49 PM »
I received my ZX Spectrum Next (Accelerated version) in the first batch and have been playing with it since.
From day one I knew it was going to be something very special. It is up there with having my first Spectrum, C64 and Amiga - in fact in some ways it is better.
You can tell that a lot of time (hence the lateness of delivery) and love has gone into designing this truly wonderful machine.
Obviously having friends that worked on it helped and I did get the heads up on some details - the new version of basic is easily one of my favourites. It makes it very easy to get stuff on the screen.
The Sprite commands, audio commands (all 9 channels), tile maps etc etc are just revolutionary.  I haven't created anything worth of sharing just yet but if anybody is interested I will share some basic code that is VERY easy to follow - either post on this thread or PM me?
There will be a 2nd Kickstarter and when they announce it I will be posting a link on here.

RCM ANNOUNCEMENTS / Everybody Tweet Lord Sugar
« Last post by The Twins on April 27, 2020, 09:53:43 AM »
We have come across a news story thet Lord Sugar wants to get hold of old Amstrads and build a museum!!

If everyone could send him a tweet and tell him about RCM he may get the message that it is not needed and he would be better off injecting his cash into RCM instead.

We are counting on you.
