Well if there's a pin header on the board, you would be able to stack shields on it like the Arduino.

Re: "Mageco" disk controler. [infos, Docs wanted]

That’s the most expensive pcb manufacturing I’ve seen in years. For that price you get the pcb with components soldered on shipped from China.

Re: Calvary Class - sequel to Masada Class game

I've tried to give some examples of what can be stored where according to the memory configuration. You always have 16k for code. Video can be stored above the 32k barrier, and data can be stored anywhere. Video must NOT cross the 32k barrier. It has to be either below or above. https://trello-attac...

Or you could load next level on tape. Then you save space, and it will still work on old hardware.

People with ZXpand would of cause don’t have to wait.

Re: Calvary Class - sequel to Masada Class game

Both Chroma and ZXpand provides at least 32k RAM, so it wouldn’t be bad to use that amount of memory for your great games.

Re: USCII, the User Specified Character Integrated Interpreter

USCII is very cool.

If you rather like vector graphics, you can download a Basic variant: HRG-ms from Mathias Swatosch, where you use commands like:

LINE,x,y,x,y
LINETO,x,y
BOX,x,y,x,y
CIRCLE,x,y,r
POLY,x,y,x,y,x,y...

Re: Zxpand to sell?

As everyone loves their ZXpand, so there is only one option. Make a notification on SellMyRetro for the keyword ‘ZXpand’, and you will be notified when the next batch is for sale.
