Re: ZXmore - questions and answers (FAQ)

Hi, Is it possible to do wildcard loading, like on the Commodore DOS: LOAD "A*",8,1 will load the first program it finds starting with A. I suppose on the file extension it would need to be like: MYFI*.P:$2000:1 Is this possible? Or would you look to implement in a future revision? Also, is there a ...

Re: What ZX81 game are you currently playing?

My daughter is currently loving playing Yoogor on my ZXMore; the extra processing power really gives this game a playability boost. She also likes Mazogs; I tried to explain to her how good the graphics were but she didn't agree and just thought that they were funny. I also game Rebound by Bob Smith...

ZX80 development thread

Hi,

I thought I'd start a thread for ZX80 specific dev talk (it may be an echo chamber) for the ZX80 and compatible clones.

I'll post C, BASIC and Assembly [in C wrapper] snippets here for people to digest, re-use, improve etc...

Thanks,

Shaun.

Re: ZX80-help needed!

Hi, As I understand it, ZX81 in FAST mode is 1:1 with a ZX80 and an upgraded ROM. At least Paul Farrow's flicker-free games that I've tried work on the ZX81. That would be a good indication that your program works on a ZX80 with an upgraded ROM. Edit: There will be some differences between the old 8...

Re: ZXmore - questions and answers (FAQ)

Yes thanks for the replacement parts. I replaced both components and it's good. I just require a longer USB cable and some 3.5mm jack plugs.

Many thanks,

Shaun.

Re: ZXmore - questions and answers (FAQ)

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to load in .O files, but with no success, so I assume that the ZX80 instance needs some refining, or has anyone else loaded in such files into the ZXMore (without a ZXPand or another way).

Thanks,

Shaun
