Yep, DM sent fine. Thank you
Now that I have a full 16k (following the incredibly generous repair/replacement help from @LardoBoffin I can doodle away to my hearts content and even fill up an entire screen
Code: Select all
10 INPUT A$ 20 LPRINT A$ 30 GOTO 10
Anyways, here's the piccy that I could only do half of before as I bombed out of memory when I only had the basic 1k
will post back when I've got the full proggy for save/recall and so on
It never ceases to amaze me how visually impressive such low resolution graphics can be when used well.
I remember my O’level art teaching banging on about ‘capturing the impression’ when drawing etc. but my brain works on fine detail so I never really got that. I could do an extremely detailed / accurate drawing or painting of what I could see but had no real abilities beyond that.
That probably doesn’t make sense but anyway - great image.

I've written a very simple drawing proggy to use on my unexpanded zeddy and I'm pretty happy with it.
***edit*** there is now an 'ascii' version with save and print options, too.
You litterally move the pointer around the screen with the four keys, then the T key will raise or lower the pen and allow you to draw or erase. It does everything I need really and I can get a simple picture done before it bombs out of available memory.
One thing I would like, however, is the ability to save the drawing once it has been made on the screen, and I hijacked @mrtinb's thread, to that effect. Got some good suggestions on that thread, so once I have been able to expand the RAM (either with the blank screen ram pack that i cant get to work, or with the ZXpand+ that I have pre-ordered) i will report back.
I've done a refactor which I think should save some bytes of RAMs.
Call it ZAXCII of course! 'zacks - kee'
