Re: Emulator for Android

Thanks it does indeed work!

Looks like to shift a key you have to press shift and then the desired key.....I guess the Android virtual keypad can't detect two simultaneous key presses?

Emulator for Android

Apologies if this has been asked before.

Are there any ZX81 emulators for Android?

And are there emulators for any other old computers for Android?

Re: ZX80 Game - Shop Steward

Just played through two games....it's quite diverting for a while, like most turn based strategy games. In these difficult times I could see a re-written version according to current employment law/practices. Works fine on Eighty One in 16K ZX80 mode. I'd love to see the political game you wrote aft...

Re: Web-Browser for ZX81: ZeddyFox V1.0

Once I get my display issues sorted I really must put my Zeddy online.

What is needed? And where do I get the hard/software from?

Re: A stupid but useful tip for TV-sets users

I have access to oscilloscopes at work (indeed I was using 5 today!) but the Zeddy works perfectly on both TV's at work. I'm not really in a position to lug a 'scope home though I suppose I could run the Zeddy at work for 30 minutes and observe the changes on the scope. First I think I'll add a 10uF...

Re: ZXpand Specific Keyboard Membranes

I've been lucky with my old Zeddies and the original keyboards & connections work fine. Until and unless I need to replace them I'm not in the market for a ZXPand 'compatible' overlay. There are only three new commands and I can remember them easily. However, if I did need a new overlay I would defi...

Re: A stupid but useful tip for TV-sets users

That composite mod works beautifully with some TV's. However my main TV at home (AOC LCD model) doesn't like it much. I get a perfect picture for 10 minutes or so but as the ULA heats up the picture breaks up. I get nothing at all when going via the composite input of my VCR or DVD recorder....and I...

Re: What ZX81 game are you currently playing?

City of Xon is a challanging game, it goes so fast! But it's a real programming achievement.

I've been playing good old 3D Monster Maze lately. And Perilous Swamp.
