A seasonal movie

Post by nollkolltroll » Sat Dec 14, 2019 10:00 am

The snowman was a favourite when I was much younger, but my memory clocked it at far less than its 25 minutes. I still enjoy the story and style of the movie, even when played on the ZX81 :D

So here is a ZX81 video player and file to watch the film in all its monochrome glory. As usual, UDG128 and ZXpand required.

:?:

You need both ZXpand and a UDG128 device like Andy's UDG4ZXpand.

UDG board owners please set to 128 and for Eighty one users make sure CHR$16 is set and ZXpand mode on.

All i get is a repeated listing of RVC player V0.4 over and over again.

I just tested it in EO successfully, and here are the settings:
- make sure that both files are in the virtual SD-card folder, snowman.p and snowman.rvc
- 32k RAM
- Chr$ Generator: CHR$16
- ZXpand+ checked

The reason for the repeated text-message is because the player does not find the rvc-file.
