One more:

The screens are also saveable as .SCR and fully ConvImgCPC compatible...

They also load well in WinAPE :D

Thanks to Kevin, I added "Stack" info to JavaCPC's debugger:


So I think the debugger is almost complete...

Or should I add more features?

JavaCPC's next release becomes "Donationware".
This means:
The emulator is full freeware.
You can register, if you want. (This is also absolutely free)
And you can donate a fee for my work. (via Paypal, Button is shown in register form and about dialog)

Why?
Simple:
I spend much time in adding things, improving features etc...

When I get enough donations, I also of course will share the money with all project helpers, co-developers etc...!

Also your name will appear in future releases in the donors list!

You can download the newest beta from today here:

Small workaround for Windows users with a fast PC and Win XP with SP3....

Perhaps JavaCPC runs slow on your system.
(FPS are around 30 fps but emulation seem to work ok)

I figured out something:
When you have DXDIAG.EXE running in background, the emulator has full 50 fps!

How?
Click START -> RUN
Enter dxdiag.exe and press return.
When dialog is opened completely (loaded all drivers etc) you should have ~50 FPS in JavaCPC!

Please keep me informed if you can confirm this!

(Perhaps there is a way to preload Direct-Draw DLL's from Java?)

I can confirm that, so long as dxdiag is run first.  Not sure if it really improves performance or not though, 30-40fps doesn't seem to be much different than 50fps.  But I do remember it being slow before, though.  Weird.

Well, 50 fps means smooth scrolling ;)

New features:
- CPC-speaker emulation (Let's squeak on 1 channel! 1w 5cm speaker power!!! Can you boost it? I really like nostalgia thats why I coded it!)
- Low pass audio filter (perhaps some people like it)

Selectable in Audio-settings...


You'll find the download <<<<< here! :D

That must be perfect for Orion Primes ESX sound system, which is specially made for the internal speaker ;D

Are you sure, that the PPI registers are shown correct. I doubt the values of A and B. But C and control seem to be ok. Have to check that in more detail.

Does JavaCPC run at all under Linux, or did I just imagine reading that?  It just waits forever while loading for me.  Runs fine under WinXP, but that crusty old PC isn't all that fast... ;)

I don't think, it runs under Linux...  :-[
In next "beta" I will disable internal Java-console by default so we could check which errors are caused on startup.
But I really don't give it a chance that it works with Linux.
(We tried it on Mac, too, and there it worked...)

I'm sure I had JEMU working on Linux at some stage. Will try it on my FC12 box later this week (when I get back from Melbourne).

Much luck! ;) (JEMU I think works well under linux, except of bad performance because Linux's bad sound implementation)

My other "small" Emu (Based on JEMU, too) should work fine under Linux:
http://cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php/topic,1871.0.html

But JavaCPC I think is quite too complex and sure has some bad written routines, which fail on Linux systems...
(It also copies windows resources like CPCXFS, SamDisk etc...) into C:\Documents & Settings\Username\JavaCPC or different path for Win Vista/7 which logically work only with Windows OS.)

Also it's strongly recommended that you run JavaCPC with full administrator rights!!!

Perhaps you remember that I wanted to use some Java styles which need a license.

I now implemented these styles, too, but they only work, when you have the libraries needed.
(JavaCPC detects if you got them or not)
They use my private license but I will never distribute the licensed .JAR libs which you need.
(You can license them for free when you use them on your private PC, then you get a DL-Link and you can download them and add them to JavaCPC's install_dir\libs)

B'coz it's Valentine's day I compiled the actual state and offer it for download:
(X-tra large because TFM's little eyes)
Download

No synthetica files or license included!
To get them, visit: http://www.jyloo.com/synthetica/
JavaCPC asks you for license name and key, when you select a synthetica style.
