Zetr0,
I have one of those too - wicked bit of kit . . . the easter eggs are cool - hidden gems!!! LOL!
How many more of them do they have do you know? Just wondering whether or not to get a few more for the museum?
Would be good to plug a couple in and go head to head on different tvs?

Did I also mention that I can load games into my Speccy and ZX81 from my ipod? Well I have now!!!
Obviously loads in realtime (slow as f!@k) as a cassette would but still, digital signal, no R Tape Loading Errors . . . hopefully!!!

Recently borrowed a couple of old tapes from one of my uncles (Hello Roy!) that had his old programs on, some stuff he did on his ZX81 in Z80 machine code, the one I wanted was a full screen running man!

I successfully captured a .WAV file and it worked on an emulator on my PC! So . . .
I then copied the file onto my Ipod, plugged the Ipod into my ZX81 and hey ho - it worked . . . 🙂

Also done this with some .WAV and .MP3 files i found for the spectrum, a couple of really old games . . .
but again, they both loaded fine from my ipod! I guess you could also put them onto audio cd/mp3 cd and play them in from a cd player as well . . . the mind boggles, we could all go out and buy cd walkmans and use them to load games instead of tape recorders! lol!

Sorry I must be boring you all witless by now - I will sign off!

Cheers
Andy

I would try and avoid using MP3 files as the compression can cause errors. Stick to WAV or CDs if you can.

@DrewPee

A most humbled thank you for the pics..... Indeed PORTABLE C64... a wholesome bit of configury if ever there was a picture 😀

and a CDROM drive for a spectrum.... theres something wholesome about that too!!!!

you think you could get around 18-22 tracks per CD? instant seek.... so i get the loading screen, sound and "R CD Loading Error" 😉

If i had a hammer, I would hammer in the morning.... I would hammer in the evening.... I would hammer all day 🙂
