Congratulations. 8-)
I think the picture is a bit far to right, not in the middle.
But this maybe also an issue of your monitor or NTSC mode.
I am using PAL mode instead, here.

Pokemon,

I found out that a CRT monitor did not have its own accessible horizontal hold knob. :x So I had to use another CRT monitor with its own accessible horizontal hold knob.

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to load in .O files, but with no success, so I assume that the ZX80 instance needs some refining, or has anyone else loaded in such files into the ZXMore (without a ZXPand or another way).

Thanks,

Shaun

Hi Shaun,
the ZX80 mode does not support the USB loading right now.
This is because the ZXmaster instance is not active during ZX80 running (same as ZX81 in FAST mode, wouldn't be able to load with DS-L during FAST mode). I will try to get a workaround in a further release. At least to load a program, not sure if SAVE will ever work this way. ;)

So this means, your ZXmore is running again ? What was the problem, just the flash rom crashed ?

Yes thanks for the replacement parts. I replaced both components and it's good. I just require a longer USB cable and some 3.5mm jack plugs.

Many thanks,

Shaun.

Hi,

Is it possible to do wildcard loading, like on the Commodore DOS:

Code: Select all

LOAD "A*",8,1
will load the first program it finds starting with A.

I suppose on the file extension it would need to be like:

Code: Select all

MYFI*.P:$2000:1
Is this possible? Or would you look to implement in a future revision?

Also, is there a way to list the directory on the ZXMore?

Thanks,

Shaun.

Yes something like that but not exactly.
It is planned to implement a kind of autofill feature and reload the file list after every char entered, so A will list only files beginning with A, AU will limit to files starting with AU and so on.
