Would it be worth doing a compatibale / incompatible software list? So far, Manic Miner doesn't work, not that I wanted to play that in particular, but I thought that I'd test it.

Thanks,

Shaun

Is there any way to inverse the whole screen?

Cheers,

Shaun

Yes - there is the video jumper J16 to inverse the picture of ZXmore. 8-)

Sorry if this question has been asked before, but does the ZXMore support any high resolution graphics modes?

Thanks,

Shaun.

Yes - WRX mode. Maybe other modes as well.
Graphic data can be accessed with I/R register and address >=$2000 (if RAM in 8-16k enabled, otherwise >=$4000).

So how do I set up WRX mode?

Thanks,

There is no setup. Just start a WRX program.
Like the well known WRX1K1.p or similar.

I'll try them when I'm back home, but in previous attempts I couldn't get some other WRX games/demos to work so I was wondering if there was a specific or optimal setting (3.2Mhz, 48K RAM etc...?)

Edit: None of the 1K WRX programs work (the example in the link, nor none of Dr Beep's games) but 16K+ programs do work (at least on my machine).

Thanks,

Shaun.

Hi,

Could you recommend a compatible joystick interface? Will any ZX81 compatible interface work?

Thanks,

Shaun.
