Bug/Glitch News

Since one of the latest Spectrum Next firmware updates, BaSoko now has a glitch which causes text to display as gibberish when the player enters anything via the INPUT command. This is to do with the font modification method I used.

I wanted to let anyone who's updated their Spectrum Next, and are having issues with this glitch in the game, know that I've come up with a fix that works, but I haven't finished coding it in everywhere it needs to be in the BASIC listing yet.

There'll be an updated download available in the next couple of days & I'll upload it to itch.io when it's ready, along with an update in this devlog. For now, you can follow the progress here on the itch.io BaSoko page.

For now, I've disabled new downloads of the game until the fixed version is ready. Watch this space ...

Get BaSoko (ZX Spectrum Next)
