BASIC Input routine

Here's a general purpose "plug n' play" input routine in BASIC. Fairly snappy for being all BASIC.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Skip frame just makes the display choppy but doesn't do anything for the speed.

Neazoi, the interlace lines can be eliminated by adjusting one of the sliders in the TV emulation window, I forget which one off hand.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

If I run this program...

10 PRINT "X";
20 GOTO 10

Speed settings of 1X, 16X and 32X all take about 6 sec. to fill the screen.

Don't worry about it, it can't be that important if no one else has mentioned it.

Maybe it's something in my WIN7 setup.

Re: New release of EightyOne available

Just curious, does the speed option in the menu actually do anything? No matter what setting I choose I don't see any noticeable change in speed. It would be nice to have some programming running at Fast and Furious speeds.

Drag and Drop not working

Unless I've missed something drag and drop isn't working in the 1.13 release.

Yes, I did delete my ini file.

New, to me, Pseudo-Hires game.

I haven't tried it yet, so there's no screenshot, see the demo video above.

Re: A Gaggle of ZX81's for sale

A more realistic price would be around $200.00 for the lot, as a full package usually ranges between $30 to $50. It would be nice to know what "real world" application they were used for. The seller says they were bought from an engineer, they definitely look like they had a hard life. Regards; Greg
