Emulator and emulator development specific topics
The app is now updated to SZ81 version 2.3.7, but the W5100 ethernet chip emulation had to be hacked up and will not run on Mac OS X. Among other things that feature depends on the Linux /proc file system for Unix builds, and Mac OS X does not have that, so I just dummied up the network code so the rest of the emulator could compile and run. This version supports WRX hires graphics, to use it you must set your ram to any size other than 16k, so 1k, 2k, 24k, 32k, 48k and 56k should all work. WRX is disabled with the ram size set to 16k for now since the Sinclair 16k ram pack does not support WRX. Later I may try to add a separate toggle to enable and disable WRX.

I just updated the zip file at the link again, this time I cleaned up the way I stubbed out the network code and removed the option for network from the command line help for now. I also added the ability for the app to be used to open .P files, and to drag and drop a .P file onto the app to load a tape.

I just updated the version to 2.3.8 and added support on the configuration screen to enable either WRX graphics, or UDG CHAR16 graphics. The screenshot below shows SZ81 2.3.8 running a game that uses UDG CHAR16 graphics...
