    I’ve only recently become aware of Programmer’s Notepad. I have to say it is excellent – so much so it’s persuaded me to finally stop using an ancient version of UltraEdit for coding.  Best bits:  Fast, clean, can highlight keywords in source and has the ability to send files to multiple external programs at a click / keypress. I’ve got it configured to assemble Z80 with one click and send the binary to my V6Z80P with another. $DONATED!$

    Another app recently brought to my attention is ASEPRITE – this is proper retro-style sprite editor with an Amiga Dpaint-like look and feel, something I’ve been after for ages. Really like the zoomed-editing and uncluttered design. $DONATED!$


  • OSCA emulator updated

    Posted on October 19th, 2012 Phil

    Tony Friery has updated his OSCA emulator for Windows, it’s still very much a work in progress so the demos and games dont run too well but it does now allow the latest versions of FLOS to run – which is handy for testing purposes, or if you want to get SOME idea of what OSCA/FLOS  can do.  (Note this is an OSCA emulator, not a V6Z80P emulator – emulating FPGAs in realtime isn’t going to happen any time soon :)

  • Spectrum Emulator Updated

    Posted on October 8th, 2012 Phil

    Alessandro and Miguel have released a new version of  the cycle-perfect Spectrum Emulator config for the V6Z80P. New features include support for the divMMC interface and esxDOS operating system, Timex graphics mode (line resolution colour attributes) and Real Tape Input (input from a earphone socket, using an analogue->RS232 adapter cable). Great work guys!
