This is the main window of the ZX-Com program. The layout has been modified by Pino Giaquinto in order to make the window's size suitable for EeePC resolution. This screenshot shows the program after receiving 6912 bytes of screen content from the experimental, FPGA-based zx-badaloc.

ScreenShot of the BOOTROM firmware, here running in high resolution (320x256 x4 bit) video mode. Since the scan converter ram is not readable, this is just a photo of the screen. It should also be noted that the hi-res mode has been dropped in the new, fpga-based zx-badaloc design for mainly two reason: too high vertical frequency of the scan converter (100Hz) prevents use of lcd screens; lack of a 128K dedicated static ram for the scan converter itself.

Date and Time are from the new button-cell-backed-up real time clock / cmos ram chip, which is also readable from BASIC. A test release of ResiDOS was installed into nonvolatile memory and properly detected by firmware. ResiDOS resumes the tasks that were in execution at last system shutdown.


This is ResiDOS v1.93 (beta), accessing files on the MMC card in 128K mode and running at 21MHz (clock speed is now selectable in basic programs by the new %SPEED command!)

In this example, a russian version of the 128K rom 0 has been flashed over the original one. Only a few blocks differ.
