:ugeek:

Thanks GCHarder !

Another bug, another place…
To get a wrong command, i scan the line to get all commands tokens to check this error.

But, in case of "IF/THEN" command, i had to test it again.
But, in the floating code '16623', there is ...DE… (222=THEN CODE)… the next token is "00" … Something's wrong !

You are Lucky Greg !!!
:lol:

Thanks.

Re: [Vb81] Disassembler Window

Post by GCHarder »

If not too hard would it be possible to make the disassembler window resizable? I find it a bit constricting, especially when the contents of the registers
are being shown. I'd also like to see wider columns, these are sizable, but restricted because of the size of the main window.

Just a suggestion.

I gave it a try. Looks good with losts of tools.. :D
CPU load is similar to EO. But when I checked it first time SETUP. EXE (dll image installer?) was still running eating as much as 50% CPU.. I just closed it an I don't know if this is a repetitive issue on install :|
Typing is snappier!! :D
I miss some more border on the display ;)
I couldn't load some .P files :?
Whit a :
CASE CLOSED
PRESS S
Is this WRX HR compatible? I tried with 1K HRG with no success.. how should I configure it?
Looks good over all
ZX80, CZ1000, CZ1500, CZ2000, CZ1000Plus, CZ Spectrum, Sinclair QL.

:lol:

Just a double double click on the icon.
It's a DLL installer, and if the vb81_xur.exe is running … it' done !

I couldn't load some .P files
Yes, most of 1k P files can't be launch on emulator or real computer, du to the screen deflating mode in 1-2 and 16kb ram pack.
Some of 1k programs in ASM can hang too, most of memory/card setup not allow the minimum ram config.

Is this WRX HR compatible? I tried with 1K HRG with no success.. how should I configure it?
No… the WRX based on the real screen scan routine are bypassed by the emulator.
Only the HR cards (Memortech/G007/Quick Silva) included in the setup menu are support.

In the first VB81 release, the "RocketMan" and "HR minor" are supported, but never test them in the recent release.
I used to launch the excellent EO to display software HRG and sZ81 to use sound devices.

Release 20/08/2020 ready.

Added new Wav functions …
- In files explorer, click a "P" file and "Convert to a wav file format" (green icon in the P file info window)
- in the Basic SAVE command, put a ".WAV" to save the file in the Wav format.
".FL" give a OTLA Fast-load with the slow mode launcher, ".TXT" to generate a text file.

The latest update runs considerably slower!

This following program take approx. 44 seconds in the 26-11-19 version and 56
seconds in the 23-08-20 version.

10 FOR I=1 TO 5
20 PRINT I
30 FOR N=0 TO 255
40 PRINT CHR$ N;
50 NEXT N
60 CLS
70 NEXT I

There is also a big file size difference, 26-11-18 is 4,381 KB and 23-08-20
is 2,712 KB. Maybe it has something to do with that, compile options?

Hi Greg,

I had to test the unoptimized release to ovoid some launch/startup incompatibility with W10.

The code was compiled Without any optimisations, but seem to slow down the exe program.

The new zipped executable available on the web site is now bigger, but compiled with the speed optimisation to speed up the emulator clock.

And this release seem to be win 10/avast friendly.
