TAPER tests.

edited May 2001 in Emulators
I've managed to get TAPER to play .TZX files, but here's something I've noticed.
When I import a file like "The Rocky Horror Show", it says that the time remaining for the playback is 4:43, and then it counts down. But when it gets to about 0:10 remaining, the load stops.
With other files it can stop with 20 seconds remaining. Does anyone else get this?

Does that mean that my TAPER is playing back 4-5% too fast, hence the early finish?
Finally, if it is playing back 5% too fast, would that still load in a Spectrum? I'm sure it would, but I'm interested in what others think.

    Aaarghh!
    TAPER is really slow again! I can't believe this.
    I try it yesterday and it works. I try it today and it's slow again.
    I have a Celeron 400Mhz machine. How can it be okay one day and too slow the next?

    Does anyone know why it's slowed down again?

    Another thing. Would a game load in a Spectrum if I sampled it at 23000Hz? Because that's the only way I get the right speed. Help would be appreciated. Damn!
