ZXBoy - Instructions

After starting ZXBoy, the main title screen will be shown. This allows game files to be selected, played, deleted and sent. To play a game, select 'Play' from the Options menu, and you will automatically be prompted to choose an installed game.

Games can be installed either by using the integrated GameBrowser to install games directly to the phone, or the game files (.z80, .sna, .tap) can be sent to the phone from a PC via IR, Bluetooth or Email. The Nokia PC Suite for the Nokia 3650 can also be used to copy game directly to the 'ZXBoy' folder on the MMC card.

Once the emulator has started, the game will either automatically load (for .z80 & .sna files), or will wait for you to load the game manually (.tap files). To load from the emulated tape, select 'Load From Tape' from the Options menu.

Once a game has started, the emulated joystick can be changed by selecting 'Select Joystick' from the Options menu.

At any time, the Virtual Keyboard can be opened by pressing the Right Softkey. This will make the game screen smaller, and display a virtual keyboard at the bottom of the screen. Use the joystick to select a key, and press the joystick button inwards to select the key.

To configure a button on the phone to automatically press a specified key, hold down the 'ABC' or 'Pen' button on the phone, and press the key you wish to be remapped while the correct keyboard button is highlighted. e.g. If you wish the phone to press 'Enter' whenever the '6' key is pressed, open the Virtual Keyboard, highlight the 'Enter' key, and hold down ABC (or 'Pen') and press '6'. You will be prompted to confirm the key mapping.

To save the current key mappings, open the Options menu, select 'Keys' and select 'Save Keys'. Select 'Load Keys' to reload a saved key mapping, or select 'Reset Keys' to return the keyboard to it's initial state.

48K Sound support is included in the emulator, but it by default not enabled. Select 'Sound' in the Options menu, to toggle the sound support. If ZXBoy is not registered, sound support will be disabled after a few minutes. To continue to use sound support, please register ZXBoy.

The game can be saved at any poing by select 'Save game' from the Options menu. To reload a saved game, exit the emulator and restart with the saved game selected.

128K Sound is not currently supported. This will be added in a future version of ZXBoy.
