Re: OpArt for the ZX81 with Chroma

Nice! I've added a link to the program from my website.

One issue that caught me out for a while is that the program only runs when using the edition 2 ZX81 ROM. With an edition 1 ROM the program crashes with error code C/9510.

If you have real hardware with tape loading, I’ve read you can load with RAND USR 836 to stop auto-run. (This I’ve never tried myself.)

Does anyone have a scan (or photos of each page) of the book "50 Rip-Roaring games for the ZX80 and ZX81"?

Re: SYNTAX ZX80 and other docs

Volume 1 only consists of 2 issues - November 1980 (number 1) and December 1980 (number 2). January 1981 is volume 2 number 1. So the archive isn't quite so bad as you think.

The emulator code is written in a mix of C and C++ using the Borland Builder 5 development environment, which runs best under Windows XP (although I did get it working under Windows 7). The source is available on SourceForge alongside the executable dist...
