Re: I'm loving the ZXpand

The monitor I'm using is called a Digistance DS-TV216: http://www.rakuten.co.jp/yu-ki/485807/697539/1886151/ ...but it's basically one of those cheap Chinese 7" LCD TV's that has been branded by another name. These TV's can usually be found for around US$60. I have 3 of them in various disguises/bra...

Re: I'm loving the ZXpand

Manic Minor. In my opinion, the best game for the ZX81 ever.

I'm loving the ZXpand

I'm loving my new setup thanks to the ZXpand. After the ZXpand package arrived, I had it sitting around for a few weeks until I finished off another project and made room for it on my work table. I was in no hurry as I thought it'd be a similar experience to my ZX1541 interface. However I was pleasa...

Re: Stardust..A game unfinished....

I can't load this file in either EO or ZXSP, and I can't convert it using tapeutils.jar.
I'll try to load it onto a real ZX81, but I think the file is just to noisy or deteriorated.

WIll try.

Re: Timex Sinclair 1500 problems

Hi,
Well that could certainly have something to do with it. However, from memory I had no issues getting a TS1000 (I don't have the TS1000 anymore) working on one of my old B/W TV sets here in Tokyo. Tokyo power is 100v 50hz. Would the issue be the same for a TS1000 as a TS1500?

Cheers
Phil

Timex Sinclair 1500 problems

I've had this machine for ages, but I've never had it working and I thought it was about time I try to give it a go. I can tune the computer in nice a clear on my TV, but the image is just blank (white). Sometimes there is a kind of strafing flashing that shoots across the screen in repeating interv...

Re: SPeccy ON the ZeddY

Ah...I just realized that this is a 16k ROM image. Does anyone know if i Just fill up the last two 8k ROM slots on my 27c256 with this 16k rom image will the zeddy be able to access all of the 16k? I'm assuming this isn't possible, as that would be just too easy, and that's not what this hobby is ab...

Re: SPeccy ON the ZeddY

Presently I'm I have: ZX81 ROM ZX81_Improved ROM Shoulders of Giants (sg81) Tree Forth (Tree4th) H4th ASZMICE07 (4k - doubled) So I have room for 2 more ROM images...

Re: ZX80 convert .o to .wav

I have been recently helping Paul Farrow debug some of his code for his ZX80 Pacman and Donkey Kong (you will notice that these programs have recently been updated as they had issues detecting NTSC or PAL on a real ZX80), and in the process I have learnt a few things about converting from .o to .wav...

Re: ZX80 Software copied...how to convert to .o ???

Sorry guys, being all the way over here in Japan I didn't realize what an important weekend it was. Anyway, I have downloaded all those previous "Image Computer Products' files, and most of mine seem to be different, and only one cassette is the same. Here is the list of what I have: • Learning lab ...
