Re: Sketchy

Since posting I've added the character set panel. Click a character to select it (for no reason as yet) but double-clicking it will print it to the screen.

Re: ZX81CRSS.ASM

I think Dr. Beep is quite brutal in his use of all the free memory locations, it's not something I've tried though. But perhaps in this case that's missing the point - this is supposed to be a nice easily understood starter project for people 8-)
