Re: Long Filename Browser for ZX-UNO / esxDOS

I've just tried saving and loading slots with v0.99a4 on my ZX-UNO and didn't find any issues. Loading an existing slot (I have one for a Pentagon timings) set the correct video timings and contention. I also created a new slot which had x8 CPU turbo enabled and loaded it back in without issue. One...

Re: Long Filename Browser for ZX-UNO / esxDOS

Does it work again in v0.99a4 if you replace the _UNO file in the BPLUGINS folder with the _UNO file from the v0.24 release? Dont work very well. System freezzy when i save configuration in slot 3 (maybe 3 minutes or more with red led on). Finally operation ends well. Works, but spent much time to ...

In the v0.24 release works fine.

Re: Long Filename Browser for ZX-UNO / esxDOS

New test version available here . This adds support for Sound Tracker Pro (.stp) music files. Debugging this new plugin also uncovered a bug introduced during the assembly rewrite which stopped the browser navigation keys moving to next, previous, first and last songs correctly during playback.

I also managed to get the TAP plugin to support the new realtime tape loading mode for ZX-UNOs. For the moment, to enable it you nee...

Re: Fix Memory Issue on ZX Uno (crowdfunding version)

The best place to ask such a question and get help is in one of the ZX-Uno Telegram groups.

https://t.me/zxuno

Sign up and discuss your problem. There are people like Antonio Villena or others who can help you.

Re: Long Filename Browser for ZX-UNO / esxDOS

Let's see, a utility would be to see the loading screen in those games in which it disappears as soon as the loading is finished. An example would be the game "The Way of the exploging fist". You could see the loading screen and once it has finished pressing F12 to set the core to 28 Mhz a...

Re: Long Filename Browser for ZX-UNO / esxDOS

Hi bob_fossil , A few days ago, in the ZX-Uno Telegram group, mcleod_ideafix shared the LOADTAP command for esxDOS which is used to load .TAP files at normal speed. The operation is like LOADPZX , although only these keys are useful: F7: PLAY/PAUSE of the virtual player. F9: STOP of the player (PLAY...

Re: New FPGA Board from Antonio Villena

Or we could get a FPGA core of the eLeMeNt ZX. There is no separate CPU chip in the description, so a virtual Z80 will take up space in the FPGA core (?). There will be less space for Speccy expansions.... Today ElementZX project is closed source - merged digital video and digital audio output (one...

Hi @bob_fossil,

I've been testing the ZX1 plugin that comes in the latest version of TEST and it doesn't work properly.

Here is an image:

The Antonio Villena's original version works properly.

I'll add it to the list for the next version. Might be easier if Antonio had a look at the plugin SDK or source for one of the other plugins and modified the code himself as that source needs a lot of changes to get it working with the assembler I use in z88dk..

I have my doubts that the ZX-Uno is of interest in this forum. It is a forum that is obviously more focused on the use of real or classic machines, and not so much on emulators or FPGA. Currently the queen of FPGAs and the one that attracts more media attention is the MiSTer and, at a much greater d...
