Re: Converting to NextBasic

AFAIK you can just load the original ZX basic program into Next BASIC. It should be backward compatible, all the new stuff is just extensions on top of it. So if you have it already as tap, just `merge ""` it (to avoid autostart), and that should be it? About txt2bas/bas2txt sources... I think Garry...

Re: Tilemap code example

you can modify "next-regs" also with OUT instruction, but it works differently. First you must output nextreg number $4C to I/O port $243B ("TBBlue Register Select" I/O port), then you can output value $xx to I/O port $253B ("TBBlue Register Access"), or you can read from the selected nextreg by IN ...

Re: Tilemap code example

How about the skeleton of zxnext editor: https://github.com/next-dev/ed It's pretty much *only* tilemap mode and keyboard handler currently (as Mike is seriously considering to write it rather in C), i.e. should be small enough to trace through it and see if you can find what is different with your ...

Re: How much longer?

Nice, I hope this is reasonably "ok" outcome for you (and I would bet somebody else got very happy about jumping in), have a good time, take care and in case you will ever cross your path with ZXN again, let's hope it will work lot better that time and there will be just fun involved *next* time. :D...

Re: How much longer?

" I was simply asking how long we have to wait until we get some product for our hard earned cash " - fair, but unfortunately the answer is nobody knows at this moment (at least not with meaningful precision, "within 10 years" is very likely 99.9% accurate answer, but doesn't help much). But by usin...

Re: How much longer?

I don't know... I just guess, that even if the keyboard prototype will work this Monday, it's just final step of pre-production phase. There's still some time to press the cases and keyboards, and I don't think the factory has empty line just so, i.e. it will would have to wait for free slot on the ...
