Up: Q
Down: A
Left: O
Right: P
Quit: G
Retry: H
Switch: [SPACE]

The last one should be what you're looking for :)

Now onto the text modes..
'dstar-dktronics.p' is for the extra character set available in the Dk'Tronics board
'vanilla' refers to the standard ROM font, which should work on any zx81 (if you press the wrong key try pressing '0' to restore the display).
The 'UDG' version should fit with all the character generator boards.. press '1' to '6' to choose the suitable character page (Dk'Tronics w/extra ram, QuickSilva, self-built or whatever..), it should get visible when you find the right one. '0' goes back to the ROM character set.

There's a hidden cheat but I'm not sure it works: try typing '+' and '-'

Hi Stefano,
I tried the "vanilla" version too and the "switch" (the space) does not work. :shock:

While you're on it, could you try the 'vanilla' version on the real hardware and confirm the video picture is stable on a tv ?
