A few weeks ago, I had installed the recent community version of the C++ Builder. And that had overwritten some of the settings of the version 5 used for the EightyOne. Plus, it has this TPrinter class which conflicts with the one used in the file zxprinter.
So, I reinstalled this version 5 on a different PC. (no need to burn a DVD under Windows, just extract the .iso and link it in with the file browser).
I did the following cleaning to make it work:
remove line 38 #include "AnimTimer.h"
2. Project Options - Directories/Conditionals
remove "..\Components\Animation-Timer\lib" (and also "C:\") from
- Include paths
- Debug source path
Project - Edit Option Source:
remove all occurrences (e.g. using <ctrl-H> ))
further cleaning, remove:
C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\My Documents\Components\Animtimer\lib\;
C:\Program Files\Soft Gems\Theme Manager\Source\;
C:\Documents and Settings\mike.CHUNTEY\My Documents\Programming\Dbits\lib\;
C:\Program Files\Soft Gems\Theme Manager\Source\
save changes and restart the C++Builder.
I tested the EightyOne V1.29 emulator with simple Basic program :
Code: Select all
10 INPUT U 20 IF U=5 THEN PRINT "CINQ"
I tried this program with SpecBAS, it's working as expected. Has someone got a similar issue with the emulator ?
If any contributors are willing (I'm not skilled enough to do), it would be great if we could:
- Add TS1500 to Zxpand options (I have one for my 1500 as well as my ZX81 and TS1000)
- If selecting Zxpand, also auto check the memory box for 32k, ZONX and WRX since ZXPAND does all those.
- Double check the 60hz code for both TS1000 and ZX-81 for rolling screen? Its also noticeably slower in 60hz even though the US version had a tiny bit faster clock to compensate as I remember - perhaps the issue is not accounting for the different clock speed?
- The display is not centered in the simulated screen - its a fair bit to the left. Timing related?
