LMN128's Diary

2021/03/15: LnxCopy supports now the eLeMeNt ZX hardware. Thank you, Lanex!

LnxCopy is a copier, simple file manager and tape-archives editor with modern user interface. It allows you to perform operations on your Speccy that were previously the domain of more powerful PCs. All eLeMeNt´s memory is supported, so you can load huge amounts of data recordings from one side of an audio casette in one go. Then sort all programs from your old tapes, make TAP files, transfer to a SD/CF card etc. Check out ilnx.cz. Great software!

2021/02/11: Two new graphics mode for fan/fun.
