USCII, the User Specified Character Integrated Interpreter

Post by dr beep » Tue Feb 19, 2019 12:25 pm

This is new software, but it is not a game so I set it here.

This is USCII. Just see what it can do.
You need a RAM-pack that can do hires (WRX).

I coded DOGCATCH also in pure ZX81 BASIC.

That game is slower than the version in USCII.
This is possible due to a simpler numberprinting.

Both games run simultaneously (although bad resolution)

This will comeback in handy for converting Lambda 8300 games for the ZX81. :)

I can easliy add an option to print leading zero’s on a number.
You can also choose to not print leading zero’s

So score could be
Score=100
Or
Score=00100
