It´s already there, but lacks a disk access.


YES, I forgot to include in my list.

My dream is a little different after the first 4 cores:
- ZX Spectrum 48/128
- SAM Coupé (with disk access)
- Amstrad CPC 6128
- MSX (if is possible MSX2 too)
- Commodore 64/128 (maybe also Plus4)
- BBC Micro
- Acorn Electron
- Apple II (composite)
- ZX-Next

I think MSX2 is very complicated to implement with this FPGA. Z80 and RAM is not problem, but yamaha V9938 would be very difficult to fit.

And without disk emulation it would had not sense, only carts emulation.

The only thing that I know by MSX is my new Honda motorcycle

OK understood. At least MSX1 which looks like possible because the Colecovision core already created and at hardware level is almost identical.

Well, to make TBBlue/Next core works, you will need these files on the SD card:
http://victortrucco.com/TK/TBBlue/Firmware1.06.rar

Don´t need to replace the folders used by esxDOS, but the TBBLUE file in the root and tbblue folder are neccessaries. All roms are loaded from SD.
You can hold the SPACE key on boot to enter in the configuration menu.

I have installed Next core in the ZX-Uno, and I found some issues, well, actually some uncomfortabilities:

1) I'm using the same SD card I use for ZX-Uno's Spectrum Cores, and so I didn't extract the SYS and BIN folders from the RAR file. As result - or maybe it has nothing to do with it - ESXDOS NMI doesn't work (makes a reset). I see the SYS folder has a old_esxdos file, so maybe ESXDOS has been patched? If so, is there any way to fix that so SD card can be shared? It doesn't make too much sense to have two different cards for two Specturm cores :-)

2) F1 is supposed to be a hard reset, but in difference with other cores, it seems to do a normal reset. A hard reset would boot up ZX-Uno again (showing ZX-Uno BIOS screen)

3) Would it be possible to make this core port key-compatible with common ZX-Uno key combinations? (Ctr+Alt+Del for reset, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace for hard reset, Ctrl+Alt+F5 for NMI, etc.). I'm not saying replacing standard key combinations with these, but just making them work as well.

Is maybe because the TBBlue core is using a different ESXDOS version? The ESXDOS.SYS file (inside the SYS folder) and the ESXDOS ROM must match in order to work properly.


Volver a “Spectrum: TBBlue / Next”
