SP-2-ZX80

Post by dr beep »

Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

I finally spent some time on the ZX80 emulator for the ZX Spectrum.
I coded it last year but it had a bug I couldn't find.

NEWSFLASH: "I found the bug"

So now games like KONG are running!

Next to do
a converter to change .O in .TAP and make them load from tape.
Speeding up if possible.

Well,

the emulator still had the debugger added to the code and without it the emulator is fast enough.

So only a convertor to add.

I added loading and saving to tape and microdrive.
Since ZX80 games do not autorun you can use a zx spectrum emulator to load a .0 and save it to .tap.

I only need to write a manual.

Will the converter to change .O files to .tap be available as a stand alone item? I've been looking for something for ages in order to run .o files for the ZX80 from tablet to the original machine and so far fou d nothing!

I had such a tool but that was 20 windows ago and the code doesn't run on new versions.

I do however have a pascalcompiler that now runs on latest windows so I could make it again.

However .... original machine would mean a soundfile.

I played ZX80 Mazogs from Paul Farrow and it plays much better than Mazogs emulated on the ZX81 emulator.
(only setting up takes some time)
