[VB81] How to make a splash screen in Basic...

Post by XavSnap »

To create a basic text file:

Any "P" files can be "patched" ( blank D_file in a 16k Basic file)...
Just prepare the auto-start as :

9990 SAVE "MYPROG"
9991 PAUSE 4E4
9999 GOTO 1

To retrieve a Basic text file to use in "ZxText2P" or Spectrum chars code, save the basic file using
SAVE"PROGRAM.TXT:C"
(default codes in "Zx81_Riched_ZxBasic" TrueType chars code, avalable in the VB81's "Zx81_Fonts" directory)
