Demetrius has been at it again with his C64 splash screens for GB2. Check them out here!

Remember, we're still accepting splash-screens and icons for GB2 and the one(s) we eventually pick for the front-end will get a free copy of the GB-CD mailed to them as a thank you! The contributions so far can be seen on the artwork page.

  gamebaseZX v0.1 Beta Released!
10 Oct 00

Neil English has released his first public beta of "gamebase64 for the Spectrum": gamebaseZX! This early beta supports the 2 popular Spectrum emulators ZXPlus and ZX32, plus allows you to add your own games. More info can be found on his web site,!

  Next Site Update...
10 Oct 00 will be updated next on Thursday 19th October. The update is early this week as I've just bought a new hard drive so I'm doing a complete reinstall this Thursday. It'll probably take a few days to get everything back to normal, so I (James) won't be available for a while.

There will be a Project Status Update with renewed missing, bugged and game lists next Thursday also.
