VZEm – Front End
This is a front end made by Jason Oakley from BlueBilby to use with the newly-released VZEm emulator by Guy Thomason.
It allows you to have a ‘images’ folder and ‘vzfiles’ folder.
The images folder contains images from title screens (or in-game) of VZ games in 500×375 size with the same name as the .vz game file in the vzfiles folder.
Add your latest copy of VZEM to the VZEM folder and when you select a game you will see the screenshot display – if it exists. Then you can click to launch it and it will load in VZEm.
Note that not all games can be started this way from VZEm at this time.
Paintyx by Jason Oakley is a graphics editor which also exports sprite data. The sprite data can be read by the Sprityx program which is also on the dsk file. You can use this sprite data in programming, for example using the Z88DK Devkit.
