ZX Spectrum Compos

Rules and Guidelines

general

Add a simple .txt file with some information about your work(s), such as compo name, work name, who made it, your contact address. You can also write there some additional information if you want. All compo entries must be first presented at the current FOReVER party. You don’t need to be present at the party to take part in the compos, but if you win and you’re not at the party place (or don’t have a friend there to accept it on your behalf), you will not receive the prize. All of the works will become freeware at the moment of submission to the competitions.

  • compo is anonymous – no author name/nick is shown on the bigscreen
  • 50Hz chip tunes competition – no sampletracks
  • compile your music with the player at the address 49152 (#C000) and send us info how to play it (init, play and stop address)
