Re: Eightyone emulator tools issue

You can reposition all windows automatically from within EightyOne using:
View -> Gather Windows.

And you can delete the current .ini file from within EightyOne using:
Options -> Configuration -> Reset To Default Settings

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Is it still based on the very first ZX128 emulator? Yep. Many of my lowres games use a trick to store data on the screen. Load games like DIGgIT, MINESWEEPER, SNAKEBINGO, K-MAN, LODERUNNER, 8BITWARS to see what I mean. It is on my Sinclair TO DO list (along with many other things). The necessary ch...

...but it crashes constantly with a 2 error that I can't figure out, so it's hard to tell.
If you start it using RUN then you get a 2/22 error. If your start using GOTO 1 then it appears to run ok.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

v1.39 installed for the new debugger menu but it seems that v139 has issue with some of my games. The game works fine using EO v1.39 for me, but only when using the edition 2 or 3 ROM. If the edition 1 ROM is used then the times do not appear as you reported. This is due to the CALL NZ,$19F9 at $42...

Re: Kaleidoscope program

I've added a link to the program on my website, along with a note about the need for 8K-16K RAM.

The program works nicely, although I found to get Chroma colour working I needed to enable RAM in the 8K-16K region. The edition 2 or 3 ZX81 ROM is also required else an error 4/1020 occurs.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Thanks for all of the updates to the debugger in EightyOne. This helps a lot with writing code. I have a (possibly foolish) question. I'm using memory view to see what changes when I do something at the ZX80 prompt. The viewer colours Red any memory cell that has changed, so you can easily spot tha...

Re: ZX Printer Output

Hi, The ZX81 emulator's 'ZX Printer' output is a BMP image. Is there any chance that output can be Standard ASCII, instead of an image? THX! Although this sounds like it should be simple, there are a number of difficulties. EightyOne could intercept the bytes in the ZX Printer Buffer as they are ab...
