Re: Difficulty loading real tapes in EightyOne

over 30 years ago a friend of mine wrote a couple of adventure games for the 16K ZX81. Two year ago he passed the only cassette copy he has to me, knowing that I had both a real Zeddy and an emulator. I've tried but can't get it to load into either.

Re: comp.sys.sinclair Crap Game Compo 2017

I have entered for the last six years or so...but seem low on inspiration. After Washing Machine Simulator, Parking Meter Simulator and Slow Cooker Simulator (plus branching out into a sports sim a few years ago) I am not sure where to head next.

Re: saving file as .p

I'm still struggling to get a program from Eighty One into the .P format

Re: My ZX81 on YouTube

I've had various difficulties getting my two Zeddies to communicate adequately with my flat TV. My Issue 2 Spectrum is perfect via the UHF input, barring a bit of frequency drift as it warms up which is to be expected. In the end, my mum donated a cheap "Wharfedale" branded LCD TV/DCD combo unit bec...

Re: Another mystery .WAV from a tape

That makes perfect sense. The tape has my scrawl on it "ZX81 16K G, N, D, J, C, P
