    Submission Message
    Played using Spectaculator, using the US Gold set.
    Captured via OBS.

    Health maxes at 9999
    Score rolls at 1M.

    I've pretty much just jumped right into this track, not sure if this meets all requirements, hope it does enough.

    Gameplay feels better than C64, but not much. Struggled to identify poison...

    Terminated game off through boredom at this point, just after the 1M rollover...

    Silly for me to "act knowledgable" about something I just learned myself, but you went over everything signifigant, I believe.

    No difference in getting the reset either way, really-I do it because I swap from 48k to 128k a lot, easier to remember one "pattern". Game-dependent, not "128k is better if it's an option", but some games perform better on one or the other.

    I never noticed the keyboard/Kempston setting you used, since I use a stick, but good job figuring that one out!

    If you run into any oddities, lemme know-is easier than on VICE(...yes. I'm playing C64 now.), but sometimes you have to start the second tape-when it asks, just load it like you did the first .tzx file.
    That's sometimes the reason to use 128k-a game may be on two tapes on 48k, but one tape on 128k.

    Very Cool, Man, Very Cool!
    Accepted!!!

    The Wizard, Huh. I never would have guessed.

    Best part of 30 years ago (not kidding) at uni, then on the NES.
    Brilliant score!

    Superb, Terence. :D

    The reason for going through all the options is there ZX Spectrum was made from "off the shelf" components and there were tons of add-ons that permitted all manner of stuff. Spectulator emulates many extensions (mostly benign stuff) but it's best to show everything to ensure there's nothing untoward or hidden enabled. You missed showing the RZX recording settings & emulator speed but it's obvious the speed was correct and there was no RZX recording stuff going on from other symptoms. ;)
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...
