Don't know if it is just me but I find the scrolling or probably the game speed to be very jittery on my ks2 machine. It slows down when firing for example. But when not a lot is happening it speeds up quite a lot. 

Compared this to the youtube footage from ks1 machines from 2 years ago and their scrolling seems slower but stable. Tried 50hz and 60hz, didn't make much of a difference in stability. Slowing down the next to 14mhz remedies the issue somewhat, but probably makes the game run too slow overall and it seems to reset to 28mhz on every new game start, so is not a  fun workaround

am i missing something or is the game just no longer working that well with ks2 machines or newer core versions or something?

I'm not sure - possibly something has changed in NextZXOS/NextBasic that has broken something...  As you noted on Alien Annihilation, that also seems to now have an odd bug...

This is very wierd...  Thanks for the heads up on that one (and the comments on the other games)

Definitely seems it's the now much-faster NextBasic 2.08 throwing things out of whack... 

I will update my Next to 2.08 - I have a fix that I will need to apply across all my games especially for the new KS2 users out there. 

On a plus, 2.08 should allow me to push more stuff in future games 👍

I have uploaded an updated version (one small single tweak is all it took on line 130) for KS2 / NextBasic 2.08 that should now correct the speed fluctuations.  Enjoy (I hope) 

Love it! Thanks man! Was able to compete now on some leaderboard thingy 😄

lol!  Really enjoyed your video! :)
