Re: New year, new projects?

Well, another year coming up: Since I bought a Minstrel 3 I'll try to get it working at 3.6864 and 4 MHz to get 40 (or more) column graphics and a small speed bump. Requires changes to the divider, 236 or 256 instead of 207. Also a new ROM to deal with the changes in timing and number of rows. Might...

A new ZX81 for me!

I just pulled the trigger on a Minstrel 3 ZX81 clone. It went on sale yesterday, so I had all night to read the schematics and think about it. I look forward to a stable ZX81 that will never develop a faulty ULA, and I will CERTAINLY mod the heck out of it :) Details at: http://blog.tynemouthsoftwar...

Re: ZXPand Organizer

Nice utility! Will be a bit of work to do some tests, but very good looking when done.

DOOM on ZX81?!

What if the ZX81 could have been made to play DOOM, what would that look like? No way to know, it simply isn't even remotely possible to code the classic shooter with the poor performance of our beloved door-stopper. Now however, I've made a 30fps widescreen video of someone playing DOOM episode 1 m...

Re: I released my ZX81+35 ZX-81 clone design files on Github

I've looked with delight at your different posts regarding your project over the years. It is a well documented build that I would love to get to build sometime. Even more, I'd love a version that is through-hole, hope there is a kit in the end. I'd also say the silence regarding most projects is qu...

Re: RVC video encoder

OK Moggy, I had time to start and test on a windows computer now. It works under win10, 64bit. Maybe you tried it on a win7, 32bit? If you only get the player-text, the video file (.RVC) is probably missing from the folder of the player. You need to place the player (.P) and video file (.RVC) in the...

Just tried to launch the program on my win 7 machine only to get an error message saying not compatible with this version of windows, so win 10 only I assume?
The exe is cross-compiled on my Linux box, and I've only tried it under Wine. Unfortunately I have no idea if it works on anything else.
