Re: Beyond

Yep, it works without any extra DLLs needed :) Thanks! This, in combination with my Fast Loader, could be very useful indeed to cut down tape loading times!

Re: Beyond

Thanks hlide. I'll try it out (and hopefully work out what DLLs are needed)

Re: Beyond

I'm interested in the mz7 compression program. I've got the link to the github. Is it easy to compile the mz7 utility for Windows? Any instructions or pre-requisities? I might still publish one last batch of Beyond on cassette tape and it'd be nice to have a much faster loading time. (Thanks for sup...

Re: Still faulty 80K

I think the RAM chips are socketed rather than soldered so should be fairly easy to pull off the board and clip a new one in. If you're unconfident with hardware, like I am, then you could get a chip removal tool and a chip insertion tool (these are what I use).

Hi,

Can new users join the forum at the moment? Do they have to be manually approved? I'm aware of somebody who hasn't heard back about their application to join the forum.

Re: Hu-BASIC

I think I have some Japanese games in Hu-BASIC somewhere, will have to transfer from tape though. Otherwise, you could look at archive.org and search for the Japanese magazines like "I/O" and "Oh! MZ", they sometimes published listings in Hu-BASIC.

Re: USR()

HL is already saved in stack and that may be the only thing which needs to be preserved when calling USR - that is, no need to save/restore in the code called by USR. That would be very cool if so! It's annoying having to begin every machine code routine with PUSH AF, PUSH BC, PUSH HL, PUSH DE, etc...

Pontoon

I found this game on a random cassette tape. I don't know who wrote the game but it's not a bad version of Pontoon really. It's for SA-5510. Unfortunately it does seem to be slightly bugged if you play it for long enough (too many nested FOR.NEXT loops) but if someone wants to correct that then feel...
