Online ZX Spectrum 48K

I found an excellent site, 8bitworkshop https://8bitworkshop.com that has many retro computers simulated in a web based interface. They just added the ZX Spectrum 48K https://8bitworkshop.com/v3.6.0/?platform=zx&file=hello.asm . There aren't too many examples yet. I have used the online fpga simulat...

Re: TZXDuino for ZX81

The TZXDuino looks like an interesting device. I didn't know it existed. I did make my own SD to wav device with a Propeller chip and another with a small touchscreen and an Arduino Due.

Re: macOS Quicklook plugin for ZX81 files

I found a Windows 10 app version of Quicklook and also found that is in git. It would be interesting to see if I could add the plugin into a fork of the Windows 10 Quicklook.

Re: Fruitcake's Site

Thanks mrtinb. I went to the Way Back Machine and sadly when I clicked on the commented Mazogs disassembly link I got an URL not archived error. I believe the downloads for the programs are good but the downloads to the disassemblies are broken and that is what I was after.

Fruitcake's Site

I noticed that fruitcakes's site http://www.fruitcake.plus.com is no longer up. There was a lot of great info and downloads on it. Has anyone archived or copied the flicker free games and the dis-assemblies of Mazogs and the other games?
