I found recently an article on an old 1983 Italian magazine (Elettronica 2000) describing an Hi-Res board for the ZX81. http://speccybits.altervista.org/scansioni/e2000_46.rar This article describes a board (including its layout) which is most probably a QS HI-RES clone (the text refers to a resolut...
you are right, the glitch exists, and has to do with my driver (I'm not sure why it happens, nor if it is visible on the real zx81). also the frequencies are probably odd, I thought that my theories were right after the successful tests and the confirmation of the test on a real hardware (on a flat ...

I notice after long time that I never answered, it is clearly necessary a bit of explanation. The "microman" game is a demonstration program I wrote in C for the z88dk. The game comes with few preset options, intended to slightly adjust it to the different display and memory capabilities but the res...
