Re: comp.sys.sinclair Crap Game Compo 2017

The site updates have been painfully slow but now it looks like the competition is closed.

I especially like the Spinner entry :-) what fun.

ZX80 4K ROM inverse characters

Dodge development thread

Hi,

I'm making another game for the Sincalir ZX81 called Dodge; the idea is that you're a drive-able object and one must move this to dodge the on-coming objects.

Screen shots, code snippets and advice seeking will be posted here.

Regards,

Shaun.

Re: ZX Spectrum Next '81 emulator

Turns out that this version doesn't work either on the Next emulator. It must be my custom assembly routines.

ZX Spectrum Next '81 emulator

Hi, My game Bounce Redux doesn't work with the ZX Next ZX81 emulator. I figured that this could be because of the auto-start routine on the build (I'm using z88dk), so I've changed it to use a GOTO directly after SAVE. The file is attached. If there are any Next users on this board, could you try it...

Re: Boing boing!

Normal with ZXMore? Do you mean that it starts too slow? That was intentional. I could make it faster from the start, but then that's not how the game should work in my head.

Thanks,

Shaun.

Re: Boing boing!

Almost six years to the day and I have made Bounce Redux, which has a completely fresh code-base and is more how I wanted the original game to be but was perhaps limited by plain and simple programming skillz.

Bounce Redux will be released shortly.

Re: ZXmore - questions and answers (FAQ)

Hi,

Could you recommend a compatible joystick interface? Will any ZX81 compatible interface work?

Thanks,

Shaun.
