See appendix A for an explanation if you have problems. Additionally, the pointers to resources at FTP sites are almost never the sole place to obtain information. If you have trouble finding a file at a particular site, use archie to locate it at a different place on the net. See appendix E for more information. The most recent version of this FAQ can be obtained from: ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/emulators-faq A hypertext version of the FAQ is available at: http://www.why.net/home/adam/cem/ If you don't have FTP or WWW access, you can request the most recent version of this FAQ by sending mail to <mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu> with the text "send pub/usenet/news.answers/emulators-faq/*" in the body of the message. 1.1 Purpose Most of the questions posed on comp.emulators.misc seem to be of the form, "is there a XXX emulator for XXX? Where can I find it?" This FAQ cannot pretend to answer every possible permutation of this question, but, hopefully, it will be possible to knock out the most common ones. There is also quite a bit of information which could be useful to developers (pointers to specifiations, etc) contained in this FAQ. 1.2 What is not included This document excludes topics that are not covered by the comp.emulators.misc charter (see appendix F), such as sound card emulation (use comp.sys.ibm.pc.soundcard.misc), math co-processor emulation (use comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.misc), and the X windowing system (use comp.windows.x). For the record, there is no such thing as an X "emulator;" X is a standard. You IMPLEMENT it on a platform, not EMULATE it. Furthermore, this document specifically excludes those machines for which an emulation FAQ has already been written. You may wish to check the FAQ archives listed in appendix H. Specific FAQs which should be referenced instead of this document follow. 1.2.1 Apple II Emulators Maintained by Alex Maddison <amaddiso@extro.ucc.su.oz.au>: ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/comp.emulators.apple2/ http://www.cs.ruu.nl/wais/html/na-dir/apple2/emulators-faq/ part1.html There is also a web page which has a collection of Apple II emulator resources. Maintained by Jonathan Badger <badger@phylo.life.uiuc.edu>: http://geta.life.uiuc.edu/~badger/apple2.html One final note; there appear to be a bunch of Apple II applications available from: http://www.asimov.net/apple_II/site/ 1.2.2 Atari 8-Bit Emulators (400/800/XL/XE) This FAQ is posted on the 1st of each month to comp.emulators.misc. Maintained by Bill Kendrick <kendrick@zippy.sonoma.edu>: http://zippy.sonoma.edu/~kendrick/nbs/new_and_emu.html gopher://gopher.archive.umich.edu:7055/00/atari/8bit/Faqs/ new_and_emu.txt Note that, since the 8-bit FAQ mentions the ST line only in passing, I will be including entries for ST emulators in this document. 1.2.3 Commodore 8-Bit Emulators (64/128/Pet/Vic-20) Maintained by Kevin Gifford <kgifford@netaxs.com>: ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/cbm/faq/8bit-emulation-faq http://www.cs.ruu.nl/wais/html/na-dir/commodore/8bit-emulation-faq/ .html 1.3 General Resources 1.3.1 Tenabis Emulator Classes Sebastien Brochet <tenabiss@mail.micronet.fr> has put together some interesting C++ classes that may prove interesting and useful to potential emulator developers. He also has a small virtual machine ("Tiny Emulator") and an assembler for that machine ("TinyAsm") available from the same page. Sebastien is using these classes to implement an Atari ST emulator. http://www.micronet.fr/~tenabiss/tec/tec.htm 2 - Processor Emulation A comprehensive listing of chip specifications is available for those people wishing to create emulators. It is available at the following sites (and several other mirrors, listed at each site): http://www.xs4all.nl/~ganswijk/chipdir/ http://www.hitex.com/chipdir/ http://www.civil.mtu.edu/chipdir/ http://ftp.unina.it/pub/chipdir/chipdir.html 2.1 6502/6507/6510 2.1.1 6502 Emulation Package (Source) The source for the 6502 emulator which Marat Fayzullin <fms@freeflight.com> has written and based a few emulators on. He has given permission for this code to be used in non-commercial non-profit programs, so long as proper credit is given. Homepage: http://www.freeflight.com/fms/CPUs/ Source: http://www.freeflight.com/fms/CPUs/6502.tar.Z 2.2 6800 2.2.1 68em [MS-DOS] 6800 emulator for DOS; includes a realtime O/S. I have very little information about this program, other than a report that the ROL direct instruction does not rotate the carry flag into the low bit of the operand properly (although ROLA does). If anyone can find a version of 68em dated after 1991-Jun-15, a pointer to that may be helpful. Program: ftp://oak.oakland.edu/pub/simtelnet/msdos/emulate/68em10.zip 2.3 6809 Some information on the 6809 can be found on : http://www.physics.carleton.ca/~aland/interests/ 2.3.1 usim (Portable) C++ class implementation of a 6809. Includes a derived class which shows processor stats in an X window. It has been tested under Linux. Written by Ray Bellis <Ray.Bellis@psy.ox.ac.uk>. Program: ftp://ftp.mrc-bbc.ox.ac.uk/pub/users/rpb/mc6809/usim-0.91.tar.gz 2.4 6811 2.4.1 M68HC11 emulator M6811 emulator and debugger; it is in its final stages of development. The processor emulation provides emulation of devices, provides an execution history, allows step debugging, and has several styles of breakpoints for debugging. See the homepage for more information. Written by Bambang Sutanto <bsutanto@POBoxes.com> as a final project. Homepage: http://www.netforward.com/POBoxes/?bsutanto 2.5 680x0 2.5.1 68000 Assembler/Simulator [MS-DOS, VMS] A 68000 simulator with a cross assembler. Includes source. No information is available on where to find this simulator.

This emulator was developed as part of a MS thesis. It is written entirely in C++, and the source code is available. On a '486-33, it runs about 1/50th as fast as an MVME101 (an embedded procssor board). Two separate sets of source are available -- one for MS-DOS (which is known to work with the Borland C++ compilers), and one for Unix. The emulator does not support the following opcodes: ABCD, CHK, MOVEP, NBCD, SBCD, and TAS. The developer has offered to supply development documents to anyone who needs to modify the source code.

It emulates the CPU, BIOS and I/O environment of an IBM AT compatible PC. Currently, the program is in Alpha, but it has an impressive list of accomplishments. It can handle 386 opcodes, and runs DOS 5.0 & 6.22 and Windows 3.1 (in standard mode). Hardware support includes Hercules graphics, PIC, timers, 1.44M/1.2M/760K floppies, and AT keyboard. Plans are to emulate VGA graphics. Currently, Bochs does not support networking, numerics coprocessor, or mouse emulation. Tasking & paging are missing in the CPU support, but paging is currently being implemented. For embedded systems developers, PC BIOS developers, O/S developers, CPU vendors, etc, Bochs supports the use of an external BIOS, and provides a compile time option for linking with an external CPU simulation environment.

Supports OLE. Produced by Sun. Wabi is a Trademark of Sun Microsystems. Wabi cannot run MS-DOS applications; however, SunPC (Sparc) and Merge (80x86) will run under Wabi. See section 6.4.11 for information on SunPC and section 3.5.8 for information on Merge. Wabi operates by translating MS-Windows API calls into corresponding X calls, providing faster translation than full emulation would. Sun is planning support for 32-bit (Win32s, Windows 95, Windows NT) applications in future releases, but they have not announced an expected date for such support. Sun has also announced plans for a version of Wabi that allows the installation of Windows with the Japanese character set. Support is planned for French, Italian, German, Spanish and Swedish versions. Caldera (producers of Caldera Desktop, a commercial distribution of Linux) has released Wabi for Linux. For more information, see the Caldera homepage. Suggested retail price is US$199.

Produced by Quorum software. 3.7.2 Executor [MS-DOS, Linux, NeXTStep] Executor is a Macintosh emulator which works with MS-DOS, Linux, and NeXTstep. It was developed completely independant of the Macintosh ROMs, so you don't have to worry about hunting down ROM images to use it. Limited (incomplete) System 7 support is available in versions 1.99p and later. Furthermore, in versions 1.99p9 and later, limited sound support is available for the MS-DOS and Linux versions. The Linux versions run under X, although an experimental SVGALib version is available. There are a.out and elf versions of the Linux binaries. Executor runs at an unbeleivably fast speed, thanks to dynamic recompilation of 680x0 machine code into native 80x86 machine code for certain segments of code. More information on this technique is available on the FTP sites listed below; retreive "SynPaper" or "SynPaper.tex." The demonstration program listed below has full functionality, but stops running after 10 minutes.

It is a free program. Freeport requires the binaries to be converted to be non-privledged, user mode a.out files. It will not work with file or filesystem formats which are not present (or are different) under Digital UNIX, code which uses SunView, or driver code. After conversion, the same code runs about the same speed (or faster) on an AlphaStation 400 4/233 as it does on a SPARC 20/71.

This section contains entries for these types of emulators. 4.1 ABC80 The ABC80 is an early-'80's Swedish home computer based on the Z80; it was more or less on par with the other 8-bit home computers of its time. The ABC80 has 16k RAM and 16k ROM. It was manufactured by Luxor (who generally are in the business of consumer electronics, like television sets, etc.). Judging from the responses I get when making queries, it was a fantastically popular computer (like the BBC was in Brittian). 4.1.1 ABC80 [MS-DOS] ABC80 Emulator for PCs.

Homepage: http://www.lysator.liu.se/~exon/archive.html 4.2 Acorn Atom 4.2.1 Acorn Atom Emulator [Unix & X] This emulator is available under the Gnu Public License. See the homepage for the current status of this emulator. Under development by Frans F.J. Faase <faase@cs.utwente.nl>. Homepage: http://wwwis.cs.utwente.nl:8080/~faase/Ha/Atom/ 4.3 Altair The Altair was one of the first kit computers that could be ordered out of electronics enthusiast's journals; it was first released in 1975. It was a small, rectangular box with a couple dozen switches on it. You would use these to toggle in your program and execute it. The output was 20 LEDs which indicated various flags and one 8-bit value. 4.3.1 Altair 8800 Emulator [MS-Windows] Altair 8800 emulator for MS-Windows. Has nifty graphics of the original machine. Also performs IMSAI emulation. Written by Claus Giloi. Homepage: http://www.nwlink.com/~tigger/altair.html 4.4 Amiga For a long time, there has been an ongoing argument about whether an Amiga emulator would be possible; in a decisive blow to those claiming it is impossible, a usable (and even zippy, under certain circumstances) emulator has been developed and released; see below for details. Still, from the days when such an emulator was beleived impossible, there are a few odd hoaxes and rumors. Due to the nature of the Amiga floppy drive hardware, it is impossible to read Amiga floppies in an IBM-PC floppy drive without heavily modifying the hardware; the Amiga can read and write in IBM format, though. In fact, as far as common knowledge extends, it is absolutely impossible to read Amiga disks in anything but a genuine Amiga. Another chapter in the long Amiga saga: VIScorp has purchased Amiga Technologies, GmbH from Escom. For those keeping track, this makes the fourth holding company for the Amiga. More information is available from both websites: http://www.amiga.de/ http://www.vistv.com/ This has very few ramifications for the emulator; the largest one is that VIScorp has made it extraordinarily clear that they intend to pursue blatant copyright violations, such as kickstart ROM distribution. In an official memo on their website, they state: "...[W]e have recently become aware that versions of the Amiga System ROMs are being reproduced and distributed without proper licensing. This is a violation of international copyright law, and VIScorp will prosecute offenders to the full extent of the law." 4.4.1 amiga.zip (Hoax) A program which purports to be an Amiga emulator for MS-DOS machines has existed for a while. All it does is display the Kickstart 1.2 startup image and hang your machine. (It wasn't designed to do anything else. It's someone's sick idea of a joke.) Note that this program has turned up in a number of shareware CD collections that are otherwise reputable -- it's still the same fake. 4.4.2 UAE [Unix & X, Macintosh, MS-DOS, NeXTstep, BeBox, AmigaOS] UAE (Un*x Amiga Emulator) is a developing emualtor of the Amiga 500/2000. To use UAE, you need Unix and X (or Linux SVGAlib), a C compiler, and a Kickstart ROM image (1.3, 2.0, and 3.0 all work). The current version includes emulation of HAM graphics; sprites; the Blitter and Copper chips; timers; disk drive support; interlaced graphics mode emulation; parallel port emulation (requires the WB3.0 PostScript driver); support for French, Italian, and Swedish keyboards; and joystick support (Linux only). Caveats include: Sprite collisions are not yet implemented; the blitter chip isn't emulated at full speed; some sound problems persist. As of version 0.6.4, UAE is moving towards a recompiling processor, which should improve performance greatly. A Mac version is available; it includes binaries for the 680x0 Macs and PowerPC Macs. This port was done by Ernesto Corvi <macsupport@overnet.com.ar>. Any Mac specific questions should be directed to him. A MS-DOS version has been produced; the port is by Gustavo Goedert <GGOEDERT@MUSIC.PUCRS.BR>. Any questions about the MS-DOS port should be addressed to him. A BeBox port has been done by Christian Bauer <bauec002@goofy.zdv.uni-mainz.de>. The NeXTStep port is maintained by Ian Stephenson <ians@cam-ani.co.uk>. Believe it or not, UAE has been ported to the Amiga. Olaf 'Olsen' Barthel <olsen@sourcery.han.de> maintains that port. A Linux (elf) binary is available from the homepage.

Homepage: http://www.micronet.fr/~tenabiss/anglais/qaemu_an.htm 4.5.9 STonX [Unix & X, MS-DOS, MS-Windows] This is an Atari ST emulator that runs under Unix with X. It requires an image of TOS to run (look for a program called "dumptos.ttp" which should be on all sites with STonX). Version 0.6 has been released. It is available from the homepage below in source and Linux binary forms. New features include serial and parallel port support, a Unix filesystem interface, and sound support on many systems. Version 0.6 is 60% to 80% faster than 0.5.X on most systems. STonX will also now boot TOS 1.0 - 2.06 (although 1.4 or higher is needed to use the Unix filesystem interface). Developed by Marinos Yannikos <nino@mips.complang.tuwien.ac.at>. There have been reports that a Windows/DOS version is under development. Homepage: http://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/nino/stemu.html 4.5.10 TOS2WIN [Windows 95, NT] An ST emulator that runs under Windows 95 and Windows NT. This emulator maps TOS destop calls into native Windows calls to help speed. It allows direct filesystem access to floppies, CD-ROMs, and hard drives. Requires an 80486-66 or faster; a Pentium-100 provides emulation speed on par with a TT-030. There is a time-limited demo available for download from the homepage. Produced by Aixit GmbH.

Unfortunately, most Americans have no idea what one is -- despite the fact that a US version (with modifications for FCC approval) was produced and sold. So, in addition to the normal entries for emulators, I've included a not-so-brief description of what these little machines are. Also, there exists a mailing list for BBC emulators, but I get the distinct impression that it is primarily for developers. For information, send mail to <bbc-emu-request@bristol.ac.uk> Also, there are a few BBC Home Pages: http://homepage.cistron.nl/~wouters/bbc/bbc-etc.html Software is available from: http://homepage.cistron.nl/~wouters/ A utility to read BBC tapes via a soundcard (written by Robert Schmidt <robert@idt.unit.no>) is available from: ftp://amnesix.idt.unit.no/incoming/btape09b.zip There seem to be an inordinate number of posts requesting BBC ROMs on the group. To reiterate: it is illegal in almost all countries to use ROM images which you do not own. However, it's not completely clear whether you may use images of ROMs you own but obtain from a second source (U.S. Residents, see appendix G). There is a mailing list for BBC emulators; to subscribe, send email to <majordomo@netcom.net.uk> with a body of "subscribe beeb-emulators". Another list is available by sending mail with a SUBJECT of "subscribe" to the address <beeb-emulators-request@netcom.net.uk>. From Paul Boddie <Paul.Boddie@cern.ch>: "Apparently, according to folklore :-) the BBC were working with the people who made the NewBrain computer, to design the BBC microcomputer. However, they were persuaded to throw the competition open to at least Acorn. There are various tales of how Acorn, with the design of the Proton, but with no idea of whether it would work, built the first BBC within three days or so. It worked well enough to persuade the BBC (corporation that is!) to adopt it as the BBC computer. "The closest predecessor was the Atom, and various other machines were made as 'spin-offs' including the Electron, BBC B+, Master series, Acorn Business Computer (never released as such), and Acorn Cambridge Workstation. (Forgive me if I have missed one out!) "Its key features were: 32K RAM (model B - the model A had 16K expandible to 32K model B status), BBC BASIC 2 (early models had BBC BASIC 1), 6502 series processor, analogue joystick port, parallel printer port, Econet (optional?), Tube (a second processor interface), disc interface, graphics modes (640 * 256 * 2 colours, 320 * 256 * 4, 160 * 256 * 16 etc.), plug in language and 'service' (such as filing system) ROM's, and more features I could go on listing...! "The BASIC was later upgraded to version 4 (Master) and versions 5 and 6 (Archimedes - see comp.sys.acorn.* groups for fans of these machines) - version 6 has IEEE floating point support. "The Z88 and the PC, Amiga versions of BBC BASIC seem to be based on version 2, but only have restricted OS command access, and may or may not have assembler access. For emulating purposes, although BBC BASIC(86) tries to support various graphics modes, the BASIC variants cannot do enough to support a 'proper BBC' environment."

Provides 65c02 emulation, odd sized screen modes, sound, and simple disk I/O and interrupts. Does not handle 6522 timers. Written by Mike Borcherds <borchrds.teaching@physics.oxford.ac.uk> Information: mailto:<Robin.Watts@comlab.ox.ac.uk> 4.6.2 !65Host [Acorn Archimedes] !65Host is a BBC B emulator for the Archimedes; it was supplied with RISC OS up to version 3.5. It is a reasonably complete emulation and supports all but the most dodgy ways of accessing the hardware. Images of BBC ROMs (for example Wordwise, View etc) can be loaded and used. Later versions support sound emulation (no mean feat) and allow around 70-80% of BBC games to be played. This emulator was developed and distributed by Acorn as an extension to RiscOS; it may not work with versions 3.5 and 3.6, though. You can contact Acorn at +44 1223 254 222. Homepage: http://www.acorn.co.uk/acorn/ 4.6.3 BBC [MS-DOS] A BBC emulator for MS-DOS machines. Still has a few problems, but pretty good progress has been made. Screen shots are available from the homepage. Requires SVGA and an 80386, although an 80486/100 or faster is suggested. You will have to get a copy of the BASIC and OS ROMs to run this emulator. Improvements in version 0.3 include VESA graphics support, limited sound emulation, teletext graphics, and a few bugfixes. More information is available from the homepage.

Under development by James Bonfield <jkb@mrc-molecular-biology.cambridge.ac.uk> and Steve Youell <wgc-e@rx.xerox.com>. 4.6.11 BeebEm [Unix, Windows NT, MS-Windows] An emulator for the BBC which runs under Linux, SunOS, and HPUX; it probably will compile for other systems as well -- GCC seems to provide the best results. It has been ported to Windows NT 3.11 and Windows 3.1 with win32s. You need ROM images to run this emulator. Written by David Alan Gilbert <gilbertd@cs.man.ac.uk>. Windows port by Nigel Magnay <magnayn@cs.man.ac.uk>. There is also a newer version (0.6) available; it fixes a few bugs, runs faster, and emulates sound.

Runs about half the speed of a BBC. Implements all non-split graphics modes. It can manipulate a variety of disk images (read only). By Ian Stephenson <Ian.Stephenson@isltd.insignia.com>. Program: ftp://pitcher.peak.org/pub/next/submissions/Owl.1.0.NIHS.compressed 4.6.14 THE EMULATOR [Amiga] This emulator runs software compatible with BBC BASIC 2 and DFS. It runs on its own screen and allows easy transfer to and from workbench programs. It runs BASIC faster than a BBC in all cases, and 6502 assembly slower than a BBC on 68000 machines, and faster on '030/'040 machines. It stores files as AmigaDOS files, not disk images. THE EMULATOR supports graphics modes 0 - 7, common VDU drivers, common OS procedures, printing, RS232 I/O, and sound (except the ENVELOPE command). It does not support GCOL modes 1 - 3. It will not run poorly behaved programs (ie programs that communicate directly with the hardware.) THE EMULATOR was produced by James Associates in the late '80s/early '90s. It runs as-is on a 68000, and requires a small patch to run on the '020 - '040. It is not known if JA are still in business; their address is/was: James Associates 6/7 Hazlitt Mews LONDON W14 0JZ Alastair Booker <ali%wgd562.uk.sb.com@sb.com> about the patch: "The best utility I have found for doing this is TUDE (available on Aminet). If you trap the MOVE SR instructions (select PRIVILEGED) and get it to return 1.3-like values on certain OS calls, it works OK." [Reposted with permission] See appendix C for Aminet sites. This emulator was sold as an official Commodore product at some point, but is no longer available commercially. Despite a brief appearance on Aminet, this emulator does not appear to have been released into the public domain. 4.6.15 TOL [MS-DOS] MS-DOS based BBC emulator, formerly called "My6502." This is a work in progress (ie it does not work yet). Under development by Chris Rae <clr1@st-and.ac.uk>. Homepage: http://www.st-and.ac.uk/~www_sa/personal/clr1/bbc 4.6.16 XBeeb [Unix & X] XBeeb is a BBC Micro Emulator for UNIX and the X Window system. It is reported to run faster than BeebEm, and can execute many BBC games. The source code (C) is known to compile under Solaris 2.5 and Linux. Features include support for NMOS 6502A and CMOS Rockwell 65C02 and 65C12 processors including all undocumented and illegal opcodes, Model A and Model B emulation, almost full support for the 6522 VIAs, mode 7 teletext support, emulation of all bitmapped screen modes (with a few minor bugs), full color support (including flashing colors), preliminary sound support (under Linux/Voxware), FS emulation support (using standard Unix files, not disk images), and sideways RAM and ROM.
