Re: LODERUNNER on the ZX81

I've tried the files again and I don't see the issue you describe. Are you testing in an emulator or real hardware? If an emulator then which one?

Re: SPeccy ON the ZeddY

I just tried the SPONZY ROM via a ZXC4 ROM cartridge plugged into a Chroma interface and it worked remarkably well. After a bit of trial and error with volume levels I managed to load the Spectrum game Flippit (Sinclair Research Ltd, G26/S) via cassette! Great stuff!!

Re: ZX81X2.ROM - and the big bang

I programmed the ZX81x2 ROM into a ZXC4 ROM cartridge plugged into a Chroma interface and ran a simple loop that filled the screen with random numbers. The difference in speed compared to the running the same loop using the standard ZX81 ROM is very noticeable and highly impressive! Congratulations ...

Re: JetPac for the ZX81

Jetpac looks great! Nice work. Have you considered including Chroma colour support in the game? ;) If you have a Window PC then you can use winTZX to create audio files from .p files as and when needed. The utility was improved last year to produce more accurate audio waveforms and also to include s...

Re: Chroma 81 - SCART and Colour interface for the ZX81

A plastic case for the Chroma interface is now available. It is 3D printed and coloured black, with a red reset button to match the red logo of the ZX81's case. All sockets of the interface are exposed, with a hinged cover over the ROM cartridge socket. ChromaInterfaceCase.png The case is composed o...

Thanks for the ts2068 keyboard. One correction, the SYMBL U key should be OR instead of ON.
Version 1.12 is now available. It corrects this and a few other minor errors in the newly added keyboard images. It now also displays the ZX80's Integral Functions list alongside its keyboard image.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Hi Lewis, welcome to the forum. A number of keyboard images were not present in EightyOne for specific computer models and so I've been slowly adding them in with each new release of the emulator. I've started on the images for TS2068 and TS2048 and they will appear in the next release of the emulat...

Re: Chroma 81 - SCART and Colour interface for the ZX81

Good find!

I've had a look and there isn't a quick fix to this with the current code base. The program will need some reworking to properly support auto-scaling to the selected font size. I'll add it to my list of things to be do. Unfortunately for now you'll now to keep the font size at 100%. :(
