|This web site contains my own collection of ZX81 and TS1000 tapes, hardware and books that I have built up over the last ten years or so, almost entirely from buying items on eBay, along with a small number of kindly donated items. There is information about all the items, including inlay and instruction scans, screenshots, listings and the programs themselves.
|All of the .P and .TZX files and inlay scans have made by me from the original tapes, using my ZX81 Tape Converter program. The program can also play the .P or .TZX files through the computer sound card so that you can load them on to a real ZX81. I also wrote the listing script, which uses the character set data directly from the ZX81 ROM to produce an authentic ZX81 look. Screenshots were taken using the EightyOne emulator.
|There are also some ZX81 book cover scans, and some hardware photos and manual scans, including the The dK'tronics 4K Graphics ROM, complete with a dump of the ROM, circuit diagram and fitting instructions, and a description of the TS1500 composite video modification.
|I've written a Super Sudoku 81 program
in machine code for the ZX81, source is available.
There's also a ZX Spectrum page, including a loading screen screensaver written in Java, and work in progress on a Hama bead loading screen.
Finally, I have some pictures of my collection.
