Re: JSZeddy

Thanks to a couple of people's feedback the keyboard in jtyone http://www.zx81stuff.org.uk/zx81/jtyone.html should now work fine on PCs and Macs - and anything else capable of running javascript at a reasonable speed. I've tried an iPhone 5 and and Android phone and it ran happily at 50fps. iPads s...

Re: Memotech ZX81 keyboard + ZXPand

Hhhmmmm.... ZXpand-AY you say....... haha

Does anyone slightly lie about how much money they spend on stuff to their better halves? I normally divide by 2 in my head when explaining what I paid for something that to others may be utterly pointless! :)

Re: Memotech ZX81 keyboard + ZXPand

HOLD THE PHONE!!!!! :) I recalled seeing some memotech documentation on zx81.de. http://www.zx81.de/memotech/_frame_e.htm Clicked on the Keyboard I/F link Read this: "IS THE ORDER OF THE MEMOPAKS IMPORTANT? Not terribly, but the 'big' Memopaks containing 16K, 32K, or 64K should come last. If you've ...

Re: Memotech ZX81 keyboard + ZXPand

Cheers for the advice Moggy & RWAP! Ok so put a wee plastic key-way/spacer in the gap, so that should be good now. Still no go with the keys. I realised the Newline/Function key also is not working. So that makes 5 keys (H-J-K-L-NL). Seeing there are 10 keys in a row, could this be a keyboard matrix...

Re: Gamebase ZX81

Sounds like a great idea!

On Android, I have a BBC Micro & ZX Spectrum emulator that have access to online versions of software accessed at a click of a button.

If the ZXPand could do that as well - would be fantastic!

Re: Memotech ZX81 keyboard + ZXPand

Cheers Moggy! Will see what condition the thing is in on arrival. Looks OK from the pics, but from experience you cannot sometimes expect too much from hardware this old from an auction site. Fingers crossed it just works, but good advice on bringing it back to life. Amazing you've had yours for 32 ...
