If you can look at BMP files then it is 1.7.
@Yerz - ??? You can view TXT files from the program as of version 1.6... Do you mean something else?

Not really, I have very bad memory, and - like it's been stated - I don't read manuals. :)
Ignore it then, please. :)

I have published some changes sent to me by KMurta that I think may fix the problem. Will you please report on your findings?? Thanks!

Hello.

1 month ago I added error messages to BMP viewer, but this version is still not published. I added this as attachment.

Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster here.

I have a zxpand version 1, with firmware version 2.2 and rom version 3.

When I try and use zxpand commander. It loads, says ok, and then goes to a empty list. None of my sub directories or files are listed. Not even then Menu.p file.

I have the program installed in the root directory on my 32Meg fat 16 SD card.... I'm at a loss. I can't seem to find any docs online showing how to set this thing up.

Any help would be great! I've got so many subdirectories and files now its getting hard to find just using the cat command. I was looking forward to having a menu based system!

Hi,

You need an updated EPROM. One of the problems of being an early adopter, I'm afraid! The current state of the art is version 6.6.

Do you have the ability to burn your own chips? If so the binary rom image is available in the announcement area of the forum. If not then I will be happy to swap your existing chip for a more up-to-date one for the price of return postage.

I was wandering.
Would it be ever possible to have those update like it's on ZX Spectrum evolution?
I mean - where all the re-flashing goes on the actual ZX.
Well yes, it's dangerous for sure but if to works there...
