AY Extended BASIC

Post by GCHarder » Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:34 pm

Wasn't sure if I should put this here or in the Software forum. I've been working on this for awhile now.

Originated from this article...

SOUND FOR THE ZX81
R. Bruneaus, Sept. 1994
Sinc-Link Vol. 12 No. 4

Modified for use with ZXPAND+.

Includes demos, a couple simple games and tunes.

I've tested all programs on a T/S 1000 with a ZXPand+ interface.

PAL systems will naturally RUN faster.

Regards;

Greg

Greg,

Just curious about what tool you use to convert from .BAS to .P?

So, both emulators will do it automagically?

I use zxtext2p to convert .bas to .p and these use sz81 for emulation. The format of the .bas files for AY Basic are not in a format that zxtext2p uses and I was thinking there was another utility.

In VB81 Xur...

To LOAD a .bas file, under FILE options just select the .bas file (any plain text file works), it will load.

To save as .p file just SAVE "MyProg"

To load a .p file, under FILE options just select the .p file (tzx also works), it will load.

To save as .txt file just SAVE "MyProg.txt"

I replace the extension with .bas.
