    :: notes :::.

we will use zx spectrum 128 +2 as party computer. think about slow and fast ram and ULA "rain" bug (don't place im2 vector into slow ram (16384-32768 or slow pages). ay sound will be in acb stereo order mixed with beep. if you are using interlace or multicolor, make timing routine because of variety of spectrum versions and clones. we load all stuff from divIDE controller, remember it's much faster than disc drive. please, let us know if your work work only in 128basic mode. try to use as less animations as possible - do a demo/intro not slideshow. we will give you 6 months to make public release of your work after the party if you will ask for it. then we will release all party works for public (if you will not ask for it, we will release your works right after the party).
