    [ UPDATE ] zxspin with ipac

    RIGHT I think i might have sussed this out, seems that the ipac2 does used some p2 commands as keys i think if i wire up 4 more buttons i might be able to map those to the most commonly used keys the speccy uses.. ie Z left X right Q for up and A for down enter works as fire/jump etc... i `ll give it a try and report back.

    cant get retroarch working

    Isnt retro arch a retropie add on dont know weather it would work within GameEx as its a front end?. TBH honest you would just add it as a you would any PC game as its just an exe.

    [ UPDATE ] zxspin with ipac

    Thanks tom ive now tried Fuse and although has a good config still run into the same problems, i think i might have to read up how the advanced key configuration works in GameEx to map out the key controls, but thanks all the same. I agree ZX Spectrum was actually my 2nd Computer as i had a ZX81 prior to that and only got a spectrum when i said to my parents if i couldn't have a spectrum id get an Oric or an Atom?? i think it was, as id saved enough up...so they got the spectrum as it was more popular even if a little more expense lol.

Many thanks in advance.

Click the Start button and in the Run or Search for programs and files text box, type msconfig and press Enter. ... Click on the Boot tab. ... On the Boot tab, check the "No GUI boot" option. Click OK. hope that helps :-)
