By the way, if you wrote a suitable program, it was possible for the ZX81 to print lower case, or even your own UDG on the ZX81 / Alphacom 32 Printer / Timex Sinclair 2040 printer.

Oddly enough I have such a thing in one of Mr Bambini's wonderful books.

I will scan if anyone's interested.

Well,

In theory you can fill the printerbuffer with lines and print hiresdata from it.

I forget if it was a ZX81 or a ZX Spectrum program... anyway, it printed pictures in "landscape" (sideways) format on the attached printer 8-)

That's a lot of fuzz about a Spectrum paper left carelessly in a ZX81 book. :lol:

Just 30 bytes needed to do that on any B/W printer attached to a ZX Spectrum.

On the ZX81, you can print a screen in high res using my ZX printer driver.
Just create four screens and the high-res driver will print out all screens on the printer.

First screen...

It's a great driver, and I'm using it.

I'll share with you all later when it's ready. :)

Isn't it the keyword COPY made for a hardcopy of the actual screen contents (including hires) ?
I thought that ...
