Re: Enhanced ARX True High Resolution Display Driver

I can test but only on LCD monitor as I no longer have a CRT monitor, also is this to be tested with UDG4ZXpand or just plain zeddy?

Re: ZX81 blank screen

The power supply is an unregulated one so off load anything up to 14v is normal and once under load it gets pulled down to something more reasonable like 10-11 v, the reg turns this into 5v for the chips and the rest into heat dissipated by the reg's heat sink. Fitting to a switching jobby removes a...

Re: ZX81 blank screen

I doubt very much much the caps have anything to do with it, one's a filter and the other a reset cap and you're are positive that all the actives are OK having checked them all, the ROM socket however. ;)

The 7805 should only produce only 5v or near enough not a mixture of 5v and 12v.

Re: New ZX81 Games

Re: ZX81 blank screen

Just my two bobs worth. I have recently converted one zeddy to a ZX80 and fitted Big Bang EPROMS to two others.

MINOSS KNOSSOSS-NEW UDG

It just dawned on me that the Harpies should have flapping wings so for that, if want you it, use this alternative CHR block in place of the one already used.

There are some incorrect chrs in the menu still that need to be changed to the updated ones but that's beyond me I'm afraid. :oops:

Re: New ZX81 Games

Chr 14 used for the snake is also part of the score display so another chr code needed.
