Re: ZEsarUX-7.1

Hi Cesar, thanks for the great work, I appreciate being able to use an emulator directly from my linux machine without the hassle of Wine or VirtualBox... Question (not related to 7.1): I'm trying to run Celebration and Against The Elements, from Paul @ fruitcake.com. The graphics are hires, but the...

Re: Smooth horizontal scrolling

Hi Lardo, Thanks a bunch for your suggestion. I started to play around with your program, and wanted to get back to BASIC, so I made the following change: - jr mainLoop + ld a, 0 + in a, (254) + cpl + and %00011111 + jp z, mainLoop + ret so that I could get back to BASIC when a key is hit (keyboard ...

Smooth horizontal scrolling

Good morning, I'm trying to do a smooth horizontal scrolling while developping a small game. The image is low-res graphic chars, and I want to shift line 16 to 24 from right to left smoothly. As can be seen in the attached file (zipped avi), this is far from smooth. UnsmoothHorizontalScrolling.zip C...

Re: PONG with AI clone ?

@Dr Beep, you're right, hi-res is plain ZX81. For what I'm intrested in for now, low-res is better, that's all i meant.

@Moggy , thanks a lot, i tried TENNIS, and it is a PONG clone with AI !!! And it is fast.

PONG with AI clone ?

Good evening,

Might sound like a silly question, but I could not find an answer on Google or the forum: is there any PONG clone on ZX81? And if so, is there an "AI" you can play against?

Thanks. Bruno.

Note: i'm not talking about high-res, but a plain ZX81 game.

Re: ZX-IDE Tutorial for programming assembler and ZX BASIC

I found the reason. It's an extended ASCII code (F7 in my case) that creates the issue.

Viewing issue with ZX-IDE

Good evening, I've had this issue for some time, and was not able to fix it. One of my programs opens as shown here: ZX-IDE-screenshot.png making it impossible to properly use. I have no clue what the reason is. I opened the file in Notepad++, looking for hidden char that could trigger this, without...

Re: Pasmo Issue

Hi Andy, thanks for the suggestion. I'm quite familiar with ZX-IDE already. On Linux, I wanted to use native Linux running tools instead of going through wine to use ZX-IDE. On the problem I submitted, I would be surprised if all Plasmo users were force to compute by hand the address where they want...

Pasmo Issue

Good evening, I'm struggling with PASMO when it comes to writing a line of BASIC to call me assembly routine. All goes well if I know in advance the address where it will start: basic_0010: defb 0,10 ; 10 RAND VAL "USR 16514" defw basic_0020-basic_0010-4 defb _RAND,_VAL,_DQT,_USR,_1,_6,_5,_1,_4,_DQT...

Re: ZX81 assembler development on Linux

Thanks Adam. Yes, I thought about it and will pick this solution as a last resort. I like notepadqq for editing and ZEsarUX for emulating, so if I can manage to use PASMO properly, i'll stick to this solution. Of course, I could also use TASM, the assembler used by ZX-IDE, on linux. It might solve m...
