is there a manual or anything for this. I'm at work but can somebody explain how easy it is to load roms. Do you have to do it like a spectrum and type in run or whatever it was (I can't remember!) or is there a load rom GUI?
The short answer is the gMenu handles it. For most games you simply need to select the file and it will load.
Supported formats: sna, z80, szx, rzx, tap, tzx, csw, trd, scl, fdi, zip.
Some (typically older) games will only work in 48k mode. This is where it gets tricky...
If you are unable to run your game the usual way (crashes or screen corruption occur) then go to the menu and turn on 48k mode, then it will reset. You will get this.
Years of muscle memory mean that I can tell you that the secret code to input here is "j", then select "ss" with X so it turns red and press "p", "p". You should get this.
Then press enter and select TAPE: START from the menu. Here's me getting my a** kicked at Zub in 48k mode:
Most games you will not need to do this.
