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

Humm...no replied! I guess converting wav to .o isn't as simple as I was hoping. I've managed to load a few wav files in eightyone, and for the present time I've just saved them as snapshots (.z81) until I can figure out what to do with them. Many of the captured wav files are in bad shape. I'm work...

Re: ZX1541 in action

Yes, I was able to contact Luis. He is presently working on updating the firmware to 1.4.
He already sent a 1.4 beta that I am testing. There are a few bugs that need fixing.

Thanks

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

I'm not sure if these tapes exist anywhere on the net, so I decided to make a copy. I have 10 cassettes for the ZX80 from 'Image Computer products' including their 'Computer Learning Lab' series (unfortunately I don't have the tutorials/manuals). Anyway, I am presently ripping the tapes to .wav file...

Re: ZX80 troubles

Thanks Paul, Anyway, problem solved. I took the readings from the 7805 and all seemed ok. I removed the ROM and reinserted it...that fixed it right up. Although I am having much trouble loading a wav file from either my PC or my Mac. Can't get it to work at all...I had done this before with no probl...

ZX80 troubles

Would plugging in a 9v @ 1.5amps damage my ZX80. This is the power supply I use for my ZX81, but my ZX81 has a lot of extra hardware attached so I bought this PSU with extra amps to handle the load. Anyway, my ZX80 seems dead now. Plugging in a more conservative 9v @ 0.65 amp doesn't fix the issue. ...

Re: ZX1541 in action

ZX1541 in action

With all this talk of the ZXPand my ZX1541 is feeling a little left out. So for those who are interested I just made a video showing the ZX1541 loading Chopperdrop 3000. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxvTBUvFTxo Phil P.S. I have been talking to the original designer and he is working on updating th...

Re: ZX81 to ZX Spectrum conversion possible

Well, I was thinking to convert my Chopperdrop 3000 program to the Spectrum. Originally written in BASIC then compiled using a basic compiler. http://web.mac.com/lord_philip/sinclair/ZX81_Chopper_Drop_3000.html So I could start with converting just the BASIC to the Spectrum and then compiling it aga...

Re: ZX81Museum.net

Just some general criticism from me about your www.ZX81Museum.net page. I find all the pictures on your page to be just too small to be useful in any meaningful way...am I missing something?
