Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

After 35 years of course there's no rush, thanks for the reply and I shall poll here or on the app store for news of the update, whenever. You're welcome to bundle my little 'Shop Steward' game as a ZX80 example as long as you include a link to my page with related notes http://simon.mooli.org.uk/A...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

... was thrown by the ZX81 key legends. Any chance of switching to a ZX80 layout when that ROM is selected, please?

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

The Bluetooth keyboard works until you load a program. Then the keyboard does not work any more. To make the keyboard work again, you have to force-quit the application and start again. Woops. Well I've ordered a bluetooth keyboard to investigate further and replicate this issue. Should have a fix ...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

It makes no sense. It's just Apple's politics. There's some logic to Apple's developer rules. They want to maintain control and avoid scenarios where: - they loose control, i.e. anyone running apps within apps that have not been approved and cannot be monetised by Apple. - they could encourage peop...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

Guys, Thanks for your interest. To clarify Apple has no qualms with exporting your efforts, be it email, FTP, print outs, cassette tone etc. Nor does Apple have have any developer restrictions for saving and reloading your work within the apps designated storage - my intension is to add this in the ...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

The in app purchases are finally live. Bear in mind that all proceeds will be distributed amongst the original developer of the games, the company that owns the ROM rights and another developer who created the base Z80 code. The developer of this app will not retain a penny of the proceeds. Incident...

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

One small question, I know a real ZX81 does not have a reset button, but is there a reset available in your emulator?
Yes, in the portrait orientation.

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

Tried on iPhone 5 and couldn't install. It's not compatible Consider this the stock answer ( also see the FAQ in http://zx81-ios.weebly.com ): The irony of not supporting older devices for an emulator of an old computer is not lost on the developer.

Re: ZX81 emulator for iOS

:oops: I've just had to resubmit again to Apple because the Software Farm game in-app purchases were not correctly linked in the first submission request even though the files and app logic are correct... It will take about 4 days to get this straightened out with Apple. In the meantime I hope there...
