Games with ZXpand JOYSTICK base

Post by yerzmyey » Tue Apr 17, 2012 2:57 pm

Hi.

I was wondering - maybe it would be reasonable to put all the games supporting ZXpand joystick into one thread to make their finding on the Forum more... 'user-friendly'.

To the moment I found:

3d monster maze works without changes.

In general any game which uses INKEY$ either from M/C or BASIC will work with ZXpand joystick. The keys assigned to a particular direction can be set with a config command. (See the manual) No diagonals are supported, but that's the same restriction as the keyboard. This is how 3D monster maze gets compatibility out-of-the-box.

I was wondering.
How difficult would be - if possible - adding ZXpand joystick support into "Treasure Hunter"?

Easy :) See new topic

It would be good to get hold of the source to make a cleaner integration of the patched code...

Perhaps some sounds ;)

Hmmm.
The English version of the game's WWW site is here http://muriloq.com/ebdt/ebdt-en.html

They wrote there: "Tadeu Curinga da Silva, EBdT’s creator, became a Merchant Navy officer and lives in Rio de Janeiro. Besides donating the game source code and allowing its distribution, he also provided a enormous amount of information about the game development, this information will soon be published here".

It could mean the site's author might have those sources.
His e'mail address is: muriloq AT gmail.com

With thanks to help from SirMorris, Miner Man now supports the ZXpand joystick - just download it from my site again to get the updated build.

Ooops. No, it doesn't. :(
