Yay, a new version!
As one can see in the Release history.txt, it's a biggy.
Excited to see that so many other language ROMs are supported out of the (drop down) box, with matching keyboards! Did you know you can double click on a keyboard to double its size? I didn't know until 2 weeks ago
The ROMs and keyboards have all been verified against real hardware. Even the TC2068's TimeWord ROM has its own keyboard layout. PS. to see its 64 column mode, you have to tick the Advanced Effects box under TV Emulation. (Advanced Effects will also screw up the sync of the ZX80 display). Look up in your 2068 manual how to enter 64 column mode, its on page 247
Also the Arabic +3 ROM has finally been dumped and therefore supported! It's the only Arabic version with a fully translated 128 ROM -- the previous versions only had the 48K ROM translated. Typing commands in 128 BASIC is quite hard as you have to type out commands in full! But there is a hidden feature: if you are in English mode, type OUT 65503,255 to switch to Arabic without rebooting. OUT 65503,254 (keys OVNZ 30556,452 to spell out خروج) will switch back to English.
Because of the long filenames of the cartridges, Windows can throw a spanner in the works, don't burry it too deep in your directory tree. (EightyOne should warn for it though).
Can you find the little Easter Egg? It's hidden in plain sight
I didn't do any
programming, all credits still go to Paul. I just got a chance to actually use some of my hardware to test and verify all the new features.
