Releases for Macintosh operating systems.
3 new models added! Ok, basically it's only one model which comes in 3 variants:
The Timex Sinclair 2068 Family
The Timex Sinclair 2068 (USA)
The Timex Computer 2068 (Portugal)
The unipolbrit 2086 (Poland)
Technically they are very similar, not to say identical, but there are minor differences:
The US version runs with 60 Hz, the European variants with 50 Hz frame rate.
The Polish version had only one joystick port, the right port was replaced by a parallel "Centromix" port. But, *wonder*, *my* U2086 had 2 joystick ports! So currently the U2086 is also emulated with 2 joystick ports and no parallel printer port.
Video Beam Indicator
Yeah! Finally, the video beam indicator is back again. Right now only for the color machines, but the b&w machines know exactly where the beam currently is anyway. ;-)
The video beam indicator is a red&yellow blinking cursor at the current position of the video beam. It is activated when the cpu clock is throttled down to 100 kHz or less or when you single step in the debugger. This is an aid for anybody who wants to write a demo with some critical timing. For those who only want to play games it's a "nice to have" for curiosity. B-)
Load assembler source
Now it's possible (again) to load snapshots and tapes from assembler source. The source will be compiled by the built-in zasm assembler and the resulting snapshot will be loaded as if it was initially selected to load. The source file is stored in the "recent files" list so that reloading it is easy.
It's not trivial to get the headers of .sna or .z80 files right, so i have included template files in this distribution.
Supported target file types for assembler sources are .sna, .z80, .ace, .rom and .tap.....
- Improved joystick stability
- Option to disable the file filter in the Insert Media dialogs
- Cartridge type selection for the Insert Cartridge dialogs
- "Insert Recent Media" menu items for Cartridge, Disk and Cassette
- Screensaver suppression while the emulator window is in focus
- Option to perform a hard system reset - hold down Option while the MSX menu is open
