Works in parallel with internal graphics IC (ULA) taking video data directly and provides crystal clear picture on VGA monitors.
ZX-VGA-JOY is a ZX Spectrum interface for connecting any kind of VGA monitor and Kempston joystick. It also has a computer reset. It supports 7 screen modes: 640x480 @ 60Hz, 640x480 @ 75Hz, 640x480 @ 85Hz and 800x600 @ 60Hz with 4 different zooms (paper/border sizes).
The picture on VGA monitor is precisely synchronised with PAL signal generated from ULA, so games that are relying on ULA timing look as they should.
ZX-VGA-JOY is compatible with all Sinclair and Amstrad ZX Spectrum models and probably with a number of clones.
