I am a zx81 person and have annoyed people on that forum, so I thought I'd come and spread my ignorance here. I've also been bothering Moggy too much and he needs a rest. Unlike the 81 I never had a spectrum in the 80s so the world of colour is all new to me. I've now acquired a couple of spectrums and my query is for the one I've just been given last night, this is a black amstrad which tells me it believes that it's a +2a. That comes up at the top of the menu. However, the manuals with it are very clearly first issue rubber key manuals. But the odd thing is that the startup menu shows a 48k option but also a +3 Basic option. So, I'm checking on my hunch that someone has re-ROMed this machine??
What do you think? And if so any thoughts on requirements for joysticks on the onboard 9pin ports?
