Re: ZX81 style game art

I believe art is mostly created by artist. As that is not my primary expertice, I use Canva, when I need something graphical.

You comment puzzles me. Certainly you did not play a Typescript version of Bomber on the ZX81 back in the 80'ies.

Re: Frontend for ZXpand+ with pictures on the right side?

I see GCHarder made this program to display graphic files: https://www.sinclairzxworld.com/viewtop ... =11&t=4416

I believe GCHarder has made a program, where you have both graphics and programs you can start.

Re: Frontend for ZXpand+ with pictures on the right side?

The commander is shown i text mode, and the BMP is viewer in graphics mode.

For your request to work, the program has to be totally in graphics mode, and write the text as graphics.

Feel free to create a file commander with these features and share it here.

Re: Best web browser based ZX 80 or ZX 81 emulator

I believe the best one is here.

It will work with your own files, and support more hardware.

Re: WANTED: Memotech Memopak RS232 Interface

It seems they are quite rare. I've never seen one on eBay the last 10 years I've collected Sinclair. I don't know if anyone on this forum has one. If they have, they would cherish it, and not part with it.

Re: Any other source of ZXpand+ ?

Well the main problem with the ZX-Wespi is that you always have to load a menu, and select your program from the menu. That does not work with programs, that loads another file.
