Re: Eightyone and Joystick controls.

can you port it to android? Whilst I have written a couple native Android apps in the past, my limited free time would be the enemy here. It’s written in a platform technology optimised way to make the best of the Apple interface approach. Hence, it would be a mission to migrate to a solid maintain...

Re: Eightyone and Joystick controls.

I doubt development will stop any time soon on EightyOne. However, it’s long overdue being ported from Borland Builder to another development environment to future proof ... well, its future. Hopefully when Paul is back online and settled from his move he can tweak it for you. In the meantime, if yo...

Re: Oh no not again - ZEDRAGON II

The experience with my iOS ZX81 emulator was that it ran without any problems, i.e no modified ROM, bar one point: If memory serves me, because I enabled the emulated ZXpand joystick support it assumed the persistent high-score saving functionality was available and crashed the game. So I ended up c...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

Any explanation for the removal? Because the game represents simulated gambling and my Apple Developer account is registered to an individual instead of an organisation their rules do not permit it and they rejected updates until it was removed. I’m not prepared to register a company, then apply to...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this topic thread. A new update (v1.6.0) has just been released on the App Store, which incorporates Chroma colour support. The main limitation still exists of not being permitted to load programs except those already included with the app. The Apple developer ...

Re: Russell J Marks - is anyone in contact?

I finally made contact with Russell: “Well I haven't done much programming for some years now, I kind of mostly trailed off with that around 2005/6. To be honest I was finding it a lot harder to do as I got older, and when it was just a hobby really it's hard not to drift onto other things. Probably...

Re: ZON X-81 vs ZON X

Hi Dim, After you kindly responded in the ZX81 Owners Facebook group I started looking at the notes on the schematic and with the help of Sirmorris testing using his real ZON X-81 the following conclusions were reached for the port addresses: A0 to A3 are always high A4 can be low or high for ZON X-...

Russell J Marks - is anyone in contact?

Hi Folks, I'd like to get in contact with Russell Marks, the author of the Z81 emulator (his code base was a starting point for other modern emulators): http://www.svgalib.org/rus/z81.html He doesn't seem to have been active since October 2004 according his change log. And his email address in the f...
