Hi Guys & Gals

My name is Karl better know as aka ZIP I'm an old fart as some would say 51 coming on 52 in June oh how its fun getting older NOT ..

But i am still young at heart and love playing FPS games ,I've been playing games from the very start back when spectrum Sinclair was amazing and Amiga commodore was the thing ,Boy them days were so fun .Quake was first big hit for me and lets not forget doom they were the two games that started my love for FPS shooters . One game I played to death on the Amiga commodore was Green Beret ,


Cheers :D

The spectrum came after, two or three versions I think.
I remember being up all night typing a progam in basic with all the "peeks and pokes and gosubs etc." then run the program in the morning and a matchstick man runs across the screen and its all over in three seconds. After 6 hours of typing......the good old days :sick::mad:

There was the ZX80, then the ZX81 (which had a RAM pack that wobbled and reset everything and also a thermal printer - used it to do my work expenses on). I think both of these came made or in kit form. Sinclair also did a 50mm portable TV which I used with the ZX81 making a portable machine.

The spectrum was a colour machine and a lot more powerful. Didn't get that because I got a VIC20 and then a C64.

Oh, hello Zip!
