Wow - I never thought I'd find myself so amazed at seeing a picture of a tin of Spam. :shock:

Also I think the cyan rain picture is now my new favourite pic in this thread.

Uploaded best of my artwork in my opinion on Pixeljoint website, in case anyone's interested. Not all are approved by moderation yet (but they are visible in profile's page), and maaaaybe I'm gonna add 5-10 or so more pictures?.. It's pretty much complete as of right now. Not a replacement for ZX-Art, just a way to explore some of my best-rated stuff without going through pages of... not so well-rated stuff.

Maybe it would look a bit random, but I think it should be done sooner or later. Thanks for all of you for moral support, for everyone who commented here and who keeps me going over the years, as corny as it may sound, you support is very appreciated and i feel truly happy knowing that my work can have some impact, as well as your responses are impacting me.

Strangearama as I’m seeing lots of missing image icons and thus missing out on Grongy greatness!

Thanks guys, I'll ask for more info from web hosting provider. We've been having some speed issues lately (should have been fixed a week ago), and I've also ordered some structure changes on website, but nothing related to connectivity. Let's see if the problem persists in a week may be.

Awesome how you use the poor Spectrum palette, working with a sub-set of the colors. Really nice.

Weird thing is that I can see images in the ‘Guess the Screen’ thread but nothing in this thread. Looks like it just when I view this thread on my iphone, on my macbook its fine.

This is obviously not a real spectrum screenshot! "Help"? ... I don't think so, sunshine. You're on your own.

There is something very odd going on with zxart.ee. My PC is now fine again (Chrome, Firefox, Edge), but iPhone and iPad on the same local network are not showing most of the images (Safari, Chrome, Edge).

Of the current frontpage, the first six images are ? the first rendered is BluDisco,Toilet Trouble is ?, Forest Escape is shown, Snake Power is not.

* note it may be something else completely, all images from imgur.com were ? earlier this morning, but ok again now.

OMG - that Sonic one. That looks not only amazing but, dare I say it, almost feasible for what such a game might look like on the Speccy.

Looks like there are some connectivity issues with zxart.ee. Please, if you get the same problem again, try to:
1. Open same image in a new tab. Will it open?
2. Try to make a full refresh (F5 or ctrl+F5) in browser. Will the images appear in that case?
3. Press F12 (in Chrome), select network tab and then refresh the page again. What status would there be for the image request? 403, 500, 200.


Update: actually I've found a problem in code, thanks. This should be ok now, but please expect similar problems in upcoming week since I'm doing some code optimizations.
