HXC STM32 (Gotek) & SD HxC new Amiga files selector v1.48a

July 21st, 2017 No comments

Jean-François DEL NERO (who’s behind the HxC SD Floppy Emulator) today has released via Facebook a new Amiga Files Selector for HXC STM32 (Gotek) & SD HxC Floppy Emulator.

The main improvement of this version v1.48a is the bootup of the file management program that is loaded much faster.

CBMXfer v1.00 (Front-End for CBM4Win/CBMLink/ZoomFloppy)

April 9th, 2017 No comments

CBMXfer is a front-end to several command-line utilities for transferring files and working with disk images. CBMXfer makes using those utilities easy by providing a familiar windows interface that removes the need to learn the commandline syntax of each program. CBMXfer also includes a multi-format file and picture viewer.

The commandline utilities are:

  • OPENCBM – transfers files/images to/from a real CBM drive connected via an ‘X-cable’ on the parallel port.
  • CBMLINK – transfers files/images to/from a real CBM drive connected to a real CBM computer connected to the PC via a serial cable.
  • C1541 – a utility from VICE that works with CBM Image Files (ie: D64,D71,D81 files).
  • NIBTOOLS – Utilities to transfer images via parallel port. Supports protected disks.
  • IMGCOPY – Utility to image IEEE and 1581 disks.

What can I do with it?

  • Transfer files to or from real CBM drives
  • Create D64 and other images files from real CBM disks
  • Write D64 and other files back to real CBM disks
  • Transfer files from WITHIN Image Files
  • View Commodore files (BASIC, SEQ, Binary, ML, Chr Sets, and Images). Supports all all machine types
  • ML viewer is a full two-pass symbolic disassembler!
  • Simple file operations like copy, delete, rename
  • Launch VICE and attach disk images plus autorun
  • Zoom Floppy supported.
  • Supports 1581 partitions with OpenCBM
  • Format disks
  • Supports IEEE drives with Zoom Floppy
  • Supports reading/writing/viewing P00 files.

Relaunch64 V3.3.7 – C64/65xx cross-development IDE

April 3rd, 2017 No comments

Relaunch64 is an IDE (text-editor) for C64 assembler-coding on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Relaunch64 has a clean and intuitive user interface, yet it offers many features that make coding faster and easier.

Java 7 or higher is required to run Relaunch64. The program is licensed under the GNU GPL 3 (or higher) and free for private and professional use.

This editor works together with common cross assemblers like Kick Assembler, ACME, or 64tass. Other assemblers might work as well, but syntax highlighting may not be 100% correct.

CBM prg Studio v3.10.0 released

March 25th, 2017 No comments

CBM prg Studio Version 3.9.0 is released. There are a lot of new features in this version. I’d really appreciate it if you report any bugs you find or have any suggestions/comments.

CBM prg Studio allows you to type a BASIC or Machine Code program in using a nice Windows environment and convert it to a ‘.prg’ file which you can run on an emulator, or even a real C64 / VIC20 or PET if you’re feeling brave and have the right kit.

CBM prg Studio is the result of merging C64PrgGen and VIC20PrgGen. Adding new features and fixing bugs in two apps which were 95% similar was a bit of a nightmare so merging them made sense.

It was also a good opportunity for a face lift and to add some new features, such as:

  • Programs are project based, meaning all related source files, sprite files etc. are kept in one place and multiple source files can be linked more easily.
  • Tabbed MDI.
  • Syntax highlighting.

What CBM prg Studio isn’t is a front-end for tok64, cbmcnvrt, bastext or any other tokeniser / detokeniser / assembler. It’s all been written completely from scratch.

New features in v3.10.0:

  • Assembler:
    • Increased sprite include limit to 256.
    • ‘Memory overwrite’ error is now a warning.
    • Use CTRL+[ and CTRL+] to go to previous/next label definition.
  • Sprite Editor:
    • Added new functionality to scratchpad.
    • Functions can act over a range.
  • Character Editor:
    • Rotate character 90 degrees.
  • General:
    • Option to load last edited project automatically.

Bugs Fixed:

  • General:
    • Using space(s) with screen code builder.
    • Wrong menu after creating a project.
    • Occasionally throws an exception when closing and opening the project explorer, project information and output windows.
    • ‘User’ palette settings not saved/used.
    • ‘User’ tools menu not created properly.
    • Generate and launch could use wrong filename.
    • VIC 20 memory configuration not set properly in emulator.
    • Tabs with different zoom levels would crash when changing tabs.
  • Assembler:
    • Uppercase PETSCII chars not generated properly.
    • IncBin wrongly reporting file too large.
    • Floating point value 0.0 not generated correctly.
  • BASIC:
    • Renumber not working for certain uppercase keywords.
    • Character code multiplier limited to 255.
    • Compress should ignore comment lines.
  • SID Tool:
    • Incorrectly reporting that the tool was still open when quitting CBM prg Studio.

See the help for a complete list of new features and fixed bugs.

Note In this version, each target machine can have its own default project directory. If you are upgrading from a previous version (before version 2.5.1) of CBM prg Studio you may be asked to set up your project directories again. Your current projects will not be affected.

New Firmware v1.4 availible for Atari XL/XE Sys-Check V2 cartridge

July 18th, 2016 No comments

Below the post of the author on Atariage Forum.

A new firmware and flashtool is availible for Sys-Check V2 series.

The new flashtool now supports both Sys-Check PCBs equipped with a SST39SF010A flash chip (V2.1 and V2.2). When you start the flashtool, it will ask you which version you have. To be absolutely sure, the flashtool shows a simplified graphic view of both versions. I think, everybody can handle it :)

Of course the flashtool (and all other documents) are written in german and english.

Also there´s a new firmware V1.4 out. This firmware can be used with ALL Sys-Check versions – also with the old V2.0 (without flash). Owners of the V2.0 must burn the 16 KB firmware image into a 27128 EPROM. All other please use the flashtool to update their Sys-Check.

V1.4 has this minor changes:

  • Sys-Check can be used with the U1MB expansion.
  • The new version first checks the whole memory (to be more exact… the first 48 KByte) and then displays the defective bits (if there are any…)
  • When bad memory within the first 48 KB is found, the upper 16 KB will not be tested.
  • If memory is fine, OS-ROM will be tested as before.
  • If both tests are fine, then pressing START after this will set Sys-Check into endless loop test mode. Memory and OS-ROM are tested infinite – until any error occurs.
  • During memory tests the background will be coloured red if defective bits were detected.

USB Stick STM32 (Gotek) HxC Floppy Emulator: Firmware v3.0.8.2a

June 6th, 2016 No comments

Jean-François DEL NERO (who’s behind the HxC SD Floppy Emulator) recently has released a version of the HxC emulator firmware that is compatible with the STM32 chip used in the Gotek floppy emulators.

This means that the great functionality of the HxC SD emulator is now available on cheaper and more widely available hardware.

The bootloader to convert the Gotek floppy drive in HxC compatible must be purchased on the website HXC 2001 by sending an email to Jean-François DEL NERO. The price of the bootloader is one-off 10 Euro per Gotek that you want to update. Future updates of the software are free and can be made from a USB stick

The HXC Usb (Gotek) firmware supports:
