Re: ZxPand+ not working the same as ZxPand original

Thank you Moggy. I was able to copy over the latest v1.12 firmware and it displays correctly. I also did the Print Peek 7679/10 and it displayed 7. I ran my previous test on the ZXPand+ and I still see incorrect values of X and Y coordinates being 97 and 98 when they should be variable never higher ...

ZxPand+ not working the same as ZxPand original

I have been doing some initial testing of Beans new ZXGame Interface and it’s had intermittent results with my ZxPand+ and a TS1000 or ZXMore (modified to work with s ZXPand or ZXPand+). One thing the WII controller on the ZXGame Interface with a short POKE program should result X and Y coordinates ...

ZXPand vs ZXPand+ ?

I have both a ZXPand (and AY daughter board plugged in) as well as a ZXPand+ where my SD card carrier with micro SD card works in the ZXPand+ but when I swap the SD card carrier with micro SD card over to the ZXPand it does not work (no K). I was thinking perhaps the ZXPand needs it's own SD card ca...

Re: New hardware I/O board using Parallax Propeller

Blitted - I have met you before a few years ago I think in Ohio for some computer users group (C64 like single board parallax computer I think).

I have a Nano DEO FPGA that I used once with an RGB LED display project I wanted to re-create. I heard they were being used to emulate a Propeller II. (Tim)

Re: Which is better? Spectrum or other....

I'm beginning to think this post should be brought into the Spectrum section but its ok with me either way. So is the Spectrum just a supped up ZX81 with better graphics, sound, etc. Is the expansion port the same on both. (i.e. can a ZXPand+ be used on a Spectrum or TS2068 or other related system? ...
