Out of the blue david_ps on board.esxdos.org has developed a new NMI system for ESXDOS.
The most important new features:
– Support for Kempston joystick
– Poke feature from NMI navigator
At the time of writing he’s at version 0.0.14, which sounds ‘early’, but it seems to be quite complete already!
Some more features of the current version:
– Extra features to load TRD files
– Mount up to 4 TRD drive images!
– Smaller font – now let’s hope ESXDOS 0.9 with LFN is out soon (Long File Name support should be integrated into ESXDOS first before it can be used by the NMI Navigator).
Keep an eye on his ESXDOS Board thread: http://board.esxdos.org/viewtopic.php?id=94.
Here are some screenshots I just took (yes, I should have connected the ZX-HD 😉 ).
GREAT WORK DAVID!

I wanted to start this ULA gallery as there are so many ULA types with specific details:
ZX Spectrum ULA gallery
I’ve measured the 5V usage of the ZX Spectrum and a list of add-ons, to know what combinations will exceed the maximum power that can be supplied by the 7805 or 78S05 voltage regulator in the ZX Spectrum.
Read about it here.
Now online: the webpage about the ZX-HD!
- The history of the ZX-HD
- Everything about the features (coming soon)
- Manuals, firmware updates, etc (coming soon)
- Troubleshooting (coming soon)
Here’s some news a lot of people are waiting for – about the development of the ZX-HD:
The case has been designed and prototypes are on the way.
And the board design has been finished as well.
If the two match as designed, production will start!
I may have them available before the end of this year.
A new revision of the DivMMC EnJOY! is coming up!
This new version has two SD card slots (second is just below the primary one).
The new DivMMC EnJOY! will also have the newly developed dual-standard joystick interface, which will support both Kempston Joystick and Sinclair Joystick (selectable with a DIP switch).
When you add an extra separate joystick interface (also available from ByteDelight), you can now play multiplayer games with two joysticks!
The new revision of the DivMMC EnJOY! has mainly SMD parts, so I will soon outsource production to keep up with the demand!
