HxC Floppy Emulator: Software v2.1.4.0

January 8th, 2016 No comments

The HxC Floppy Drive Emulator is a software and hardware system created by jfdn aka Jeff.

The aim of this project is to replace the floppy disk drive by an electronic device emulating the floppy disk drive (list of supported Computer/Hardware).

There are two differents emulators:

  • A USB version which allows to connect the floppy disk drive interface of the computer to a PC via a USB cable.
  • A SDCARD version which allows to emulate floppy disks which images are stored in a SDCARD.

Release notes for the HxCFloppyEmulator software v2.1.4.0:

  • New Loader : *.ANA AnaDisk file loader.
  • New Loader : VFDDAT file loader.
  • New Loader : Densei Sirius VFD DAT Loader.
  • New Writer : *.DIM writer.
  • New Writer : *.ADZ writer.

CBM prg Studio v3.6.0 released

December 12th, 2015 No comments

CBM prg Studio Version 3.5.0 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.

Improvements:

  • Assembler:
    • Reporting of page boundary crossings for branching instructions.
    • Choose character set for TEXT directive.
  • General:
    • Editing tools (Select to end/start of screen/doc etc.)
    • Comment blocks
  • Debugger:
    • Show effective address of next instruction.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Assembler:
    • Low of high byte of labels could fail.
    • Occasionally wrong target machine type with ‘generate and launch.’
    • Problems with a comment character after a comment character or in a string.
    • Problem with a label as a destination when the label is on the same line as the macro definition.
    • ‘Align’ incorrect when already on align boundary.
  • Debugger:
    • Wrong return address shown.
  • BASIC:
    • Statistics tool not coping with ‘rem’ in strings.

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.

Relaunch64 V3.3.5 – C64/65xx cross-development IDE

November 1st, 2015 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.

    • Custom character mapping for TEXT directive.
  • General:
    • Overlap detection when building mixed BASIC and Assembly sources.
    • Generate and Launch doesn’t rebuild the source if no changes have been made.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Assembler:
    • Better error reporting for invalid WORD values, specifically with arithmetic.
    • TEXT strings containing ‘;’ characters were truncated.
    • Crash when dragging text around a source file.
  • Debugger:
    • SBC instruction not setting/clearing carry flag properly.
  • BASIC:
    • Statistics tool not coping with ‘rem’ in strings.
  • General:
    • If the confirm quit dialog is turned off and changes have been made there is no save option.

USB Stick STM32 (Gotek) HxC Floppy Emulator: Firmware v3.0.6.6a

October 11th, 2015 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:

Release notes Firmware USB HxCFloppyEmulator v3.0.6.6a

  • Some more random crash issues corrected into the disks images managers.
  • USB Stack updated.
  • Firmware Update strongly recommended!
