Dandanator CPC, plug and play
ZXDandanator Mini is a multi-game cartridge for Spectrum ZX computers. Just like CPC Dandanatoris oriented to the development and distribution of games in cartridge mode and to the loading of snapshots in SNA or Z80 format of Spectrum ZX.
The contents of the cartridge can be updated without additional hardware via the Serial-Kempston port (kempston joystick port) or via the Divide or DivMMC expansion for ZX spectrum.
This version of Dandanator ZX is Multiply Ready, so you don't need to adapt anything to make it work.
We also offer you a serial to USB port adapter with which you will be able to program your Dandanator ZX with any modern computer.
