ZEsarUX 6.1 RC

Post by chernandezba » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:51 am

Hi

I have uploaded a new beta version of ZEsarUX. This is ZEsarUX 6.1 RC so next version will be a final stable version :)
You can download it from:
https://github.com/chernandezba/zesarux/releases


You can see the full changelog here:
https://github.com/chernandezba/zesarux ... /Changelog


The following are the changes from the last beta on March:

Added ZX-Evolution BaseConf emulation (experimental)
Added a fast spectrum core (with some features disabled) just for slow devices, like Raspberry Pi 1/Zero. Now ZEsarUX is playable on RPi1/Zero again!
Added setting to save spectrum screen to pbm file (black&white)
Added a setting to dump ram contents to file when exiting ZEsarUX, ideal to run automatic tests

Improved debugging:
* added cpu-step-over function on debug menu (was already available from ZRCP)
* added function to write byte to file on ZEsarUX hardware debug ports

Improved ZRCP:
* when a breakpoint is fired on cpu-step-mode, the breakpoint condition is shown on ZRCP

Improved file viewer from file utilities:
* conversion utility

Improved TSConf emulation:
* added TR-DOS emulation support


Improved menu interface:
* added a setting to limit menu event: enabling it you should press the menu key 3 times in a second to open the menu
* added a setting to hide directories from file selector menus, useful when you don't want the user to be able to navigate the filesystem

Improved TBBlue emulation:
* Added Copper
* Added almost all next extended opcodes
* Added a setting to start TBBlue directly to a 48 rom but with all the Next features enabled, useful for fast snapshot loading


Fixed panic screen: now it is shown on all machines. New design. I hope you never see it ;)
Fixed bug on Z80 cpu core, iff2 was not being reset to 0 when firing an interrupt, so reading it by using LD A,R and LD A,I affected many demos


Cheers
Cesar

Hi Cesar.

More great work as usual!

I have a comment about the AY emulation for ZX81 however - it doesn't sound right. I used your emu to try out BiggOil and the music is pitched way too low. There is a video on youtube recorded directly from ZXpand which can be used for reference.

I ran the OSX version on Sierra.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

The AY pitch problem has been mentioned before.

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1864&start=10


It seems to be pitched around the Amstrad CPC's AY frequency.


I find this program useful for hearing the difference in AY pitch between machines.

In the settings page(ABC button) select "other" and enter 1625000 for zx81 frequency.

No, AY on zx81 uses its own frequency
