Spectrum-related software for Windows
This is a bitmap font (not Truetype). It should work on any version of Windows from 2.0 on - though I'm not promising anything.
Download the font (5k)
To install, extract ZX8.FON from the zipfile and copy it to your Windows Fonts folder.
This is the last time I design a Windows raster font. The process is _so_ ill-documented. The only documentation that might be of some use has been hidden away in the MS Knowledge base and on the MSDN archive CD; you have to guess - once for each bit of the documentation - the right combination of keywords to find it.
If you use the font conversion tools included with WINE, this font can be converted into an X Window font for Unix computers.
Gooey Blob screensaver
This screensaver comes in two versions - 16-bit (works on Windows 3.1+) and 32-bit (works on Windows 95+).
32-bit version (52k)
16-bit version (32k)
MFC source (23k) for both screensavers. You don't need this to use them.
