Re: ZX 81 development on Linux. What tools?

For assembly, I use PASMO. Documentation is online. sudo apt install pasmo For BASIC, I use zxtext2p. Source is available and it was a quick compile. To convert a .p file to text, then zx81list (source code also available). I also concur with using sz81 as a great ZX81 emulator. It has lots of featu...

Re: ZXzine #7 Posted

Rune,

I've fixed the errors on the page. ZXzine #3 did not have a zip (even though one was listed) and the other problems were just the wrong file names.

Re: How bad was the wobble on the zx81

I faced two issues when I got my ZX81 in Nov. of 81. 1. Kept over heating and crashing I learn not to use the ZX81 on a shag carpet. Once I put it on a desk or such, it was fine. 2. Moving the ZX81 with the 16K pack would cause a crash When the ZX81 was picked up, the 16K pack was not secure enough ...

Re: AY Extended BASIC

So, both emulators will do it automagically?

I use zxtext2p to convert .bas to .p and these use sz81 for emulation. The format of the .bas files for AY Basic are not in a format that zxtext2p uses and I was thinking there was another utility.

Re: AY-3-8910 (AY/YM) music generation?

I've never used a soundtracker and I'm interested in tinkering with Andy's ZX81 SoundTracker. Is there any manual? I've found a series of articles on soundtrackers on the Spectrum for ZXFormat magazine, but it is heavy reading. It would be nice to have an example of taking some sheet music and conve...
