Re: Jupiter ACE (again)

I found with the ZX81 and a ZX8-CCB there is variance in results from one TV to the next.

Re: ZX81 essential maintenance?

As for what's in your 81 if the board is red when viewed through the vents underneath then most probably it has the later back porch ULA 201E, if the board is green then possibly one or other of the two ...

Re: ZX81 essential maintenance?

Woohoo, it all works! It'll even load and save, although it won't load the four commercial ZX81 games I have (Psion Flight Simulator, QS Defenda, JD Arcades, and Adventure C: The Ship Of Doom); but this could be anything from cassette tracking problems to the 16kB rampack not working properly on a ...

Re: Dragons Lair SD card on sell my retro

Thanks Andy.

Managed to get it but can only assume its some kind of demo version as the tap to begin jobby just loops a video over and over and the play keys do nothing.(tried on three different spands including a plus)

The Emulator version just freezes on the start screen. :(
