Welcome!

I have found the tzxduino works well with the ZX81 (or at least the ones I have bought). They always load first time which definitely cannot be said of using a cassette player!

Not sure how they work with multipart loading games though? Never managed to get that to work yet, e.g. Rock Crush has a loader and then a game in separate files.

@1024MAK, thanks for your welcome
@Lardo Boffin, thanks for your interest..

Yes, this is possible :D , tzx should, what format are you using?

Maxduino 1.56 option #ID19REW is not activated by default. As you know there is also an id block for pause in tzx format, that you can insert before each level. I have a video at youtube, you can search for maxduino.

Happy you like tape loading as much as I do :D

Thanks for the Tzx hint. Currently I am just using .p files.

Once my new one arrives I will give it a go.
