Any chance of switching to a ZX80 layout when that ROM is selected, please?
With the newly released version 1.2.5 this now is in place.

Regards,
Kevin

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

Apple have just approved a new version of the app, which has a gamepad mode. It also includes Dr Beep's latest game.

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

A thinking aloud post. Aside from the key limitation imposed by Apple guidelines of no external program loading, it was obvious that long term appeal for the app was going to be marred by the virtual keyboard for gamers. The keys are too crowded and/or small depending on the iOS device. Hence, devel...

Re: Sorting out some things......

Well, thanks to Kevin and his iPad emulator I was able to figure out that 2 games didn't load on real hardware. Apple have approved in the last few hours the the latest version (v1.1.2) of the iOS emulator now with all of Dr Beep's released ZX81 games. Many thanks to Dr Beep for allowing me to incl...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

OK I have the WRX code working in a fashion thanks to comparisons with the EightyOne code. My primary objective was to get the code to work without having a WRX switch, unlike EightyOne, when only 1k & 2k (unexpanded). And then later have a modified WRX option for the 16k configuration to turn it on...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

Well, Kevin. Time is on your site. We played games and I found some time to finish the texting and files. Now in your mail. Not only the 1K games, but also SHOGUN, My first ZX81 program, added. Fun part: since spring there is a SHOGUN-app for download, but my AI is better and the game will be free....

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

What better days than writing explanations of the games and making a ZIP-file than Christmas. Working on it. Plan to be ready before newyearsday. Looking forward to seeing it! Don't let it get in the way of spending time with your family. No pressure. We can add the games in batches over two or thr...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

I finally give up trying. My iPhone 5 is not compatible. My wife's iPad isn't compatible and yesterday I tried a IPad mini that might be able to run it but although iOS 10.0.2 was installed your emulator complained that it needed iOS 10 to run on it. Genuinely sorry to hear about the app woes. To c...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

Hi Mark,
If you a referring to the point about the Bluetooth keyboard hiding the keys in "Clear" mode when you start typing. Then twist your device to the landscape orientation and look for the "Clear" button on the left and not a virtual key.
