Re: What else might be connected on the ZX81 alongside the ZXPand+ ?

I seem to remember that being correct although I have to say it was an issue one xpand with early firmware not a plus model so not sure if that makes a difference? I have to say it was very hit and miss when used with the Xpand as was the Memotech hi res unit which was very intermittent,sometimes w...

Re: What else might be connected on the ZX81 alongside the ZXPand+ ?

Not quite correct in reference to the centronics interface, I have one of these and it does work if you switch the ZXpand overlay ROM out by using the "CONFIG X" command which unfortunately reduces the ZXpand to just a 32k RAM module. I also use a Cheeta sweet talker speech unit with my Zxpands suc...

What else might be connected on the ZX81 alongside the ZXPand+ ?

Hi, I have a ZXPand+ that works very well. Now I was wondering what else can be attached to the ZX81 edge connector alongside the ZXPand+. I know that the ZXprinter can be attached and works ok. Can the Westbridge 2050 modem works if the ZXPand+ is connected ? Maybe both share the same I/O or someth...

Re: ZX Printer Belt

That's good to hear, guys. What I have decided to do should make everybody happy. The belt with the styli will be sold on SMR as previously mentioned. I will repost on this forum the files for the belt with the do-it-yourself mounting posts as well as helpful tips for successful printing. These I h...

Re: ZX81X2.ROM - and the big bang

Is there any plan or work in progress so that zxpand(+) user can use that fast ROM.

Maybe it is technically impossible...
Maybe it is already available ...

Thank you.

Re: New game - BiggOil

I must control myself and play less often. I got stuff to do.

Very good game.

Re: ZXpand-Commander

Hi, Just download zxpand commander. It works well with my zxpand+. However, if the printer is attached, it will start printing black lines as soon as the program is loaded and won't stop. (CMDR.P was loaded without the X option). While the printer is burning paper like crazy, the program is neverthe...

Re: ZX Printer Belt

Man, that is great to see! And I thought I had your only stylus. Please send a close-up of how you attached them to the posts. I looked in my junk box and I found the remains of my second printer belt. It was just too tempting... As I said, I just melt the top of the spigot to hold the stylus in pl...
