Re: SpecEmu-generated zx7 TAP file

The ZX7 compressed TAP generator got mostly finished but I went off to write a Z80 assembler that mostly got finished and then Summer came and I went off into the great outdoors and haven't coded anything in months! Aha! So it didn't fall out of a portal from an alternate universe after all! :) Was...

Re: SpecEmu-generated zx7 TAP file

Hmm... it seems to save a SZX even if I change the file extension. Only SZX, Z80 and SNA available in the file selector dialog.

SpecEmu-generated zx7 TAP file

Going through some old files today I found a TAP file of Short Circuit 128, dated May 2017. It displays this message at the start of loading: https://i.postimg.cc/z30GCqpB/specemu-tape.png Anyone know where I got this from? I'm pretty sure I have the latest SpecEmu but I can't see an option to gener...

Re: GAC on 128+2 (not 2a)

Not a +2, but I used to use this with my Toastrack and it worked fine. Does it work on an emulated +2? The turbo loader was ridiculously fast, perhaps the poor old +2 tape deck is having issues? Even if you get it to load it won't use the extra memory, only the base 48k. To be honest you're loads be...

Re: The Press

I wonder if it was a bit late in the day - most of the mags had stopped doing much 'serious' stuff by the time The Press came out. I *think* I've figured this out now. There are another pair of programs on the tape called 'auto savers' which aren't really very well explained and I thought they were ...

Re: RND related question

Yeah, it was always my understanding that RND returned a number of 0 or greater but always less than 1, therefore INT(RND*187) would give you what you want. If it's possible for RND to return a value of 1 I've never seen it happen!

Re: The Press

From what I understand The Expander is actually something completely separate which allows you to use memory which isn't usually available to The Quill for extra messages and locations... Unless I've misread that part of the manual completely. You can also load The Press directly into The Quill, so ...
