Re: ZX81 emulator

Which model of Pi are you using?


Sadly... I have one of each :shock:

Looking at the PItube direct github I get the feeling its run from LINUX.
Will it run from Raspbian on a PI... ?
And if so is it the CLI or desktop?
Sorry for the low level NOOB questions :oops:

Re: ZX81 emulator

How are you loading the emulator? Are you doing zx81 filename or just zx81 and then LOAD"filename"? I've tried both those methods. I'm wondering if the issue is with the .p files I have. which build of the PiCoPro are you using? It needs the Diamondback-dev release as there a bug in the h...

Re: DOS Plus assisstance

Hmmmm...

I've re-imaged the CF card in my Rertclinic Master.
DOS boots to 2.1 and ERASE is flagging ' file not erased : (filename) '

So I then booted my VideoNula Master with DOS 2.1 3.5" boot disks and that also comes up with the 'file not erased' report when trying to erase a file.
