CBM prg Studio v3.2.1 released

January 18th, 2015 No comments

CBM prg Studio Version 3.2.1 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:

  • Screen designer speed up.
  • Speed up of switching/adding/opening files and projects.

Bug Fixed:

  • Assembler:
    • Duplicate labels not detected in projects.
    • SYS call always created at start of file.
    • Build order not correct.
    • Assembly dump showing both parts of the code within conditional assembly statements.
    • Code reformatting issues.
    • Negative numbers in BYTE and WORD sequences not assembled properly.
    • Numbers in strings in BYTE sequences not assembled properly.
    • Numbers in TEXT sequences not assembled properly.
    • Arithmetic in WORD sequences not assembled properly.
  • General:
    • Sprite Designer grid glitches.
    • Exception thrown when generating .prg with the output window closed.
    • Code indent/outdent/comment/uncomment would add extra carriage return.
    • Code comment/uncomment would add extra REM statements.
    • Problem adding existing files to a project.

Relaunch64 V3.3 – C64/65xx cross-development IDE

August 1st, 2014 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.

AspeQt v1.0.0 Preview-6 (Atari serial peripheral emulator for Qt)

June 12th, 2014 No comments

AspeQt is a cross-platform, free and open source Atari 8-bit serial peripheral emulator. The name is an acronym for Atari serial peripheral emulator for Qt, Qt being the cross-platform application development framework used by AspeQt.

AspeQt emulates various Atari 8-bit peripherals like disk drives and printers via an SIO-2-PC cable. If you are familiar with software like Sio2Pc, APE, Atari810, AtariSIO etc., you probably won’t have any problems getting used to AspeQt.

Even though AspeQt is not fully mature yet, it is easy to use and, despite its shortcomings, has many features that you may find useful, the highlights being:

  • Cross-platform GUI with drag and drop support.
  • 15 emulated disk drives with support for 512 bytes per sector disk images.
  • High speed operation up to 6 times faster than the normal speed (With compatible OS / DOS)
  • Ability to use PC folders as emulated disks.
  • Disk image explorer for viewing and modifying disk image contents.
  • Ability to run Atari executables directly without using disc images and Doses.
  • Printer emulation with preview and ATASCII support.
  • Cassette image playback with custom baud rate.
  • Ability to save and restore AspeQt sessions with its UI settings..=
  • Normal and mini UI modes.

Version 1.0.0 Preview-6 (May 23, 2014) (Ray Ataergin):

  • Windows registry entries for AspeQt are now stored under “atari8warez.com” registry tree, the program will automatically migrate settings on the next run. Existing AspeQt session files storing session settings are not affected by this change
  • Code needed to compile AspeQt under Mac OS X is added (David Voswinkel – optixx) (see compile.rtf file included with the source archive)
  • Folder images are now emulated in DOS 2.5 disk format rather than DOS 2.0 This gives more unique sector numbers to work with before they are re-used in a circular fashion.
  • Fixed the “Not a binary file” error loading certain executable files.
  • Text conversion is now OS platform aware (Win, Linux, OS X)
  • Explorer Window Stay-on-top feature is now user selectable and persistent across sessions.

HermIRES v1.29 C64 hires-bitmap editor

March 18th, 2014 No comments

HermIRES it’s a cross-platform hires bitmap (Art Studio 1 format) editor for the Commodore 64.

The format has some restrictions, here are the rules:

  • The maximal resolution of the picture is 320×200
  • Only 16 fix C64 colours can be used (no gradient either)
  • In a 8×8 pixel-block only 2 colours can used to be displayable by C64 (this is detected in HermIRES, but .hbm files can be saved with clashes too.)
  • On a real C64 the PAL will blur the screen-content a bit, should check on CRT, or at least VICE emulator’s CRT simulation.

Changelog:

  • AFLI caption can be fully disabled (AFLIexe-patch included along with bin2array.exe)
