SINCLAIR COMPUTING - WITH HAMMER OF RETRIBUTION PRODUCTIONS
Hammer of Retribution Productions may have been dormant since May 2019, but my interest in Sinclair computers certainly isn't, and if anything, it's expanding - so this all-new version of the old Spectrum-related pages has been brought bang up to date in October 2020. The screen on the right is carried over from the old pages, from a time when the Hammer of Retribution Ogg-Cast was active, and where the worlds of epic heathen metal and the ZX Spectrum finally finally met in episode 44, Spectribution, around the time of Spectrum's 20th (in hexadecimal) birthday in April 2012. I thought it would make an excellent title for this part of the site.
Things I keep here are indexed in the menu to the left, any by way of explanation, you will find:
My programs - fairly self-explanatory, wouldn't you say? Anything I've programmed that I consider even remotely worthy of being made available to the general Sinclair computing public is hosted here, and the really good bits are sent to Spectrum Computing for proper archiving.
Character sets - an archive of redefined character sets, some of which are to alter the standard Spectrum ROM font, and some are to provide more custom graphics than the standard user-defined graphics space.
Enhanced type-ins - my modifications of some magazine type-ins from 1983, some of which were changed between 1989-91 or there abouts when I was a lot younger, and others which had a more significant makeover when I was in my early 20s.
RZX Archive - a catalogue of all my submissions to Daren Pearcy's RZX Archive, which showcases "action replays" of games in a format native to the Spectrum and is a lot less space-intensive than MP4 video. The site is tragically defunct now.
QL type-ins - an archive of type-in programs for the Sinclair QL, the Spectrum's lesser-appreciated business-oriented cousin, which started appearing in the magazines around the autumn of 1984.
Links & information - other related sites that I think might be useful or interesting.
Meet the creator - a few things you wanted to know, and a lot of things you didn't, about my 37-year history with Sinclair computers.
