Spectrum +3
« on: March 02, 2010, 04:56:39 PM »

I have been looking at the spectrum dats files and noticed a section called [dsk].

Would i be stepping on anybody's toes if i looked at renaming them and putting them in a +3 dat.

Thanks in davance

I think the spectrum DAT is a mix of all spectrum systems since they seem to be compatible to each other, if you can identify files to be published for the +3 only, then it would be a good choice to make a +3 DAT, same goes for the +2.

I hope gorski will be able to clear things up here too because he got more knowledge about the system than I do, so it would be good to wait for his opinion.

Hi all,
my english ..:)
.dsk files is specific to sinclair +3 computer, this is images of +3 "floppy" disks
but i think zxpsectrum\games\[dsk] is not wrong place of this files
spectrum +3 is compatible with older spectrums +2,grey,128,48+
spectrum +3 is not different like ql to need to have own section of files
kenny8373 i not understand what is your idea, place explain more :)
what about [trd] or [scl] they must go in pentagon or scorpion dats ?:)
