Just a quick one. Are there any plans for porting EO to macOS?
I don't know anything about macOS, but the source is freely available should anyone wish to have a go.

Re: EightyOne Green Screen ?

Re: EightyOne tape load problem

If you have updated from a much older version of EightyOne then you will need to delete the EightyOne.ini file saved by the previous version, which is located in a hidden folder under your user account name. When you next run the emulator it will create a new ini file, but now of the correct format....

Re: ZX81 Berzerk Clone

The operation of the DDC colour interface is described here on the forum. It doesn't sound a very flexible mechanism. I was on the verge of buying one back in the day as the idea of adding colour to the ZX81 sounded incredible but I never did in the end. The DDC interface certainly wouldn't have all...

Fruitcake: do you think you can patch the ZX81x2 ROM for the Chroma Interface to allow loading programs via RS232?

Re: Requesting Help to Load a .WAV file.

I managed to load the file and run it, but the game screen remains static. However, pressing BREAK returns to BASIC and so it isn't crashing.

Re: LODERUNNER on the ZX81

I've managed to reproduce the issue you reported using the EightyOne emulator by setting the Chr$ Generator setting in the Hardware dialog to dk'tronics instead of CHR$16 . Even with CHR$16 mode selected, the same issue is seen if the output format selected in CPEC is 8K-64 ; it needs to be 8K-128 ....
