Driver: Kempston Joystick Interface navigation in Next Menu System.

Postby paulland » Fri Jun 08, 2018 10:30 am

As a stepping stone to another project I have created a Spectrum Next driver that will allow you to use a Joystick on port 1 (left) to navigate the Next menu system when the interface type is set as Kempston.

It has an added benefit of also allowing you to also use the same Kempston interface setup with games set to 'cursor' type.

It requires NextOS 1.98 > which translates to the TBBLUE SD Distribution v.0.8c https://www.specnext.com/latestdistro/

The .zip includes instructions but if you are stuck feel free to ask.

This is a beta release and my first Assembler code. If there are any issue please feel free to log them here instead of the Facebook group to keep some semblance order.

It works well and I have been running it with MOUSE.DRV from the distribution and the new UART.DRV I have running and I can still receive data over the ESP so the three drivers seem to work well together!
I'm Infinite Imaginations when not in work... PAWS for thought.

It has been tested. Can you check your joystick is set to Krmpston? Or post your config.ini?
