It depends on what you're doing. For 16bit maths and 3D stuff, the Speccy tended to walk all over the C64 (compare and contrast Carrier Command, for example, at least graphically) whereas the C64...

As soon as I'm happy that SpecBAS has matured, then I may go back to ZXSpin. There's a veritable shitload of issues that Win10 has brought to the table that need addressing.

The 3.5 MHz z80 in the Spectrum is roughly equivalent to a 1Mhz 6502 - barring certain operations that the z80 performs slightly better at; the Speccy did 3D a lot faster than the C64 for that...

I added Joysticks to ZXSpin pretty much as an afterthought, so it's not as friendly as it should be. If you have the joystick set to kempston emulation then you can't redefine it. You have to select...

That RF shader looks like it's emulating NTSC unfortunately. PAL would be nice. The Speccy display there is way too sharp and doesn't show the dot-crawl due to Y pollution/cross-talk.

In the Speccy scene, we solve our disputes in a similar manner - each party is assigned to an AI Wizard in Chaos, and then the game is played out until only one is left standing.
