I've written a very simple drawing proggy to use on my unexpanded zeddy and I'm pretty happy with it.
***edit*** there is now an 'ascii' version with save and print options, too.
You litterally move the pointer around the screen with the four keys, then the T key will raise or lower the pen and allow you to draw or erase. It does everything I need really and I can get a simple picture done before it bombs out of available memory.
One thing I would like, however, is the ability to save the drawing once it has been made on the screen, and I hijacked @mrtinb's thread, to that effect. Got some good suggestions on that thread, so once I have been able to expand the RAM (either with the blank screen ram pack that i cant get to work, or with the ZXpand+ that I have pre-ordered) i will report back.
You could open it up and replace the capacitors, and that might fix your RAMpack.
ZX81, Lambda 8300, Commodore 64, Mac G4 Cube
I got a chance to open it up earlier and as soon as I saw them there I had a similar thought! Hoping to get some time to have a closer look at the weekend so will report back if I have any success on that front.
ZX81 iss 1 (bugged ROM, kludge fix, normal, rebuilt)
Iss 3 ZXVid
TS 1000 iss 3, ZXPand AY, ZX8-CCB, ZX-KDLX & ChromaSCART
TS 1500 & 2000
Spectrum 16k (iss 1 s/n 862)
Spectrum 48ks plus a DIVMMC future and SPECTRA
Thank you so much! That would be awesome. I'm not sure if I can DM yet; will see if I can send my details now.
Thank you @Dim_75! One day I will create a masterpiece and the wife will have to let me leave the zeddy switched on forever if I can't save by then
