Re: ZXzine #7 Posted

Hi Tim,

the magazine looks great, so I tried to download the others. There are a few with page not found (404) errors - #1. #3 for the ZX and #3 for the QL.

But, I have enough to read for now :)

Re: Treasure hunt testers needed

Hi Crayon I get an error 5/44. Looks like you are printing beyond the last line. Its usually at the kill dragon bit (although it never says dragon, just enemies nearby - then what with you bare hands?). I can get there if I try to play the game sensibly, or just enter random commands. Always the sam...

Re: Harlequin 48 Max Issue 2

Thanks McKlaud

47pF it is then...

I'll try the alternative inverter if there are problems. Got a bit to wait for 4.43Mhz crystals arriving.

Harlequin 48 Max Issue 2

Hi, has anyone built the Harlequin ZX 48 Max issue 2?

There is a capacitor marked on the board but not in the BOM. Its position C24

I'd appreciate if anyone could tell me the value to use.

Re: Dungeons of Yore

It fails to run with error 2/4 for me.

It looks like a couple of programs have been saved before the one we want to see.

So, LOAD"" a couple of times, then GOTO 1.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Has anyone tried 1.13 yet? I get the main screen loading, but it never initialises to the Cursor. I cant load any programs.

Version 1.9 runs fine.

EDIT - Got it working after deleting old folder(s)

LD A,$00 DEC HL CP H Ah, now I see what you are doing... @HullZX81man, I use TASM.

Re: New to Machine code, help required

Hi XavSnap I understand how the LDIR call works. Your examples show this to good effect. When I said that Panthers second example wasn't working, it was because the HL and DE registers had never been initialised. Therefore they would have been moving data anywhere, but it wasn't to the screen. Also,...

Re: New to Machine code, help required

Hi Xavsnap Are you saying it's printing the contents of A (first character) and then continuing until BC=0 but just printing blank spaces (ignoring A) ? Yes, the LDIR command only operates on HL, DE, BC registers. We dont know what addresses HL or BC are pointing to, just that they pass the contents...

Re: New to Machine code, help required

@XavSnap, yes, but to be pedantic, 704 + 23 N/L is 727, not 726. Also using Call Print or RST#10 would only print in printable locations, so the count has to be 704.

Why did you use $03BF as the counter? Isnt that more than a standard screen?
