Aehm... can't see that much at the HP. However, if would be great if is would support expansion RAM and ROMs.

MacDeath, the post is a little sarcastic, but also is serious.

Devilmarcus, I found Burnin' Rubber DSK but... that is a CPC+ game, now I understand the joke. Sorry, I didn't have a CPC machine. I started learning in the world of CPC one month ago, for programming the emulator. I only have read technical documents, from cpcwiki.eu and from grimware.com. So my game knowledge is null, only remember games that were similar in spectrum (I owns a ZX Spectrum +2A).

TFM/FS, what does HP mean, Hewlet Packard? Expansion RAM is supported only up to 128Kb and in games that uses it (like Batman the Movie). So tell me the game that you want to see working and I will upgrade the machine for it. About ROM expansion, what of these ROMs http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Category:Expansion_ROM
do you want to see?

Thank you everybody for the feedback

HP = Homepage  ;)
 
Well, to have expansion RAM would be great in general. 512 K is enought. If you can work with 128 k, the 512 k is nearly the same.
 
About ROMs, would be great to be able to add expansion ROMs.
 
However I must admit that I can't check out the emulator here at work, will do that later at home. So maybe I got a bit a wrong picture of it.

Roland emulator has 2 ways for loading software. 1. Loads from the server, with the filename in the URL. 2. From your local storage, dragging a file into screen area.

The first option is targeted to non-experienced cpc-users, that doesn't have dsks or taps images in their hardrives. Also they don't know how to load the software: run", |cpm, so all this will be occur transparently.

The second one is for cpc-users. You can load a local file (like in cpcbox), but also must type the start command.

So I can put a 4th machine: 6128 with 512k. And you can load locally the dsk that you want. Also I can upload some software to the server that uses that expansion.

To add ROM I have this idea:
-You drag into emulator a 16k raw rom file.
-Emulator ask you from bank number: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Upper_ROM_Bank_Number

What do you think?
