Re: Small memory dump program

@mrtinb,

I was wondering - I've written a little routine to allow me to do some drawing on the screen; is there any way that I can use your memory dump program to SAVE the screen (the drawing)?

I'm new to this so forgive my ignorance if it's a daft question!

HI,

VB81 ?
Juste open the "EasyDraw" window and save the D_file in a "Bas" format (text format).

Reload the basic program and save it in a 'P' format...
Thanks for the tip! Will give that a look but I'm a stickler for doing stuff on the actual hardware as far as I can.

Re: Looking for an sd card device for my zx81

The ZXPand is an ideal solution - it has 32k of RAM, supports hires and is an SD card reader. I have just checked on sell my retro (https://www.sellmyretro.com/search/naturalSearch?keyword=zxpand) but can’t see any up for sale at the mo. Doubtless sir morris will notice this post and update on avai...

Looking for an art program

Hey all, One of my favourite pastimes is creating lo-res art on vintage computers; I am completely new to the 81 scene so I'm looking for advice on an art program, if such a thing exists? I'd be very interested to get into to ascii-art or similar on it and I realize that this may yet come down to sc...

Later on I got myself a Speccy 48k but I've always wanted to try the earlier machines... I love that aspect of the ea...
