Re: ZXSimulator

Who'd ever have thought that a sort-of-joke program written after an actual-joke thread on World of Spectrum 16 years ago would actually be of use! I get excited when I find a BASIC program that doesn't use any machine code or Peeks/Pokes and that I don't have to type in and can try on my emulator....

Re: QLWiki updated to latest version

I'm going to take a copy of the QLWiki and load it on a local server and see if i can work out what is going on. In the logs I have access to on the live system, there are no errors shown in the logs, so we don't have a lot to go on. Work is pretty hectic at the moment, but I'm hoping to do this ov...

Re: motherboard mod

Yup, that's what my US version looks like. Not sure what all that is for.

Re: Moved ZXSimulator page to better free hosting site

Started this project a few months ago after this thread but eventually ran out of time. Main problem is that the QPC1 SMSQ/E is relatively old and most of the current software doesn't work with it anymore, so I had to downgrade quite a few tools for the demo disc: https://www.kilgus.net/qpc/live/ I...

Re: QLWiki updated to latest version

Hi Rob, just noticed this post on the forum. Bwinkle is having the same 403 error inserting code into a post on the forum. https://qlforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3193&p=36792#p36792 -- might be related? P.S. qlforum wouldn't let me insert the code this time so I had to use pictures...kep...

Re: ZXSimulator

Another new version: zx.zip So whenever I try out a new ZX81 BASIC program I find some small bug or idiosyncrasy. If you gave the ZX81 Vroom clone a try you might have noticed that during change of track you saw a white streak...well what I did, whenever printing out either a full black block or a q...

Moved ZXSimulator page to better free hosting site

I moved my website for ZXSimulator to a new hosting service. InfinityFree.net was nice and all but had this policy of deleting web pages that had very little traffic on them for 30 days. You got a warning and then 3 days later it was wiped clean with no recovery. Their reasoning was to make room for...

Re: ZXSimulator

So a new version of ZXSimulator after a long hiatus: zx.zip Only one mod as I had an important inconsistency. ZX81 BASIC has AND and OR deal with strings uniquely: ⋅  "A" AND 1 -> "A" ⋅  "A" AND 0 -> "" All other combinations are a syntax e...
