4.7 CHIP8 CHIP8 is an odd puppy. It was never a real machine, per se; instead, it was a virutal machine implemented on several different platforms (similar to the current implementation of Java). CHIP8 interpreters were written for several machines (including the TELMAC 1800 and several kit computers, like the ETI 660, DREAM 6800, etc.). It was used primarily to program simple video games. The CHIP8 instruction set has fewer than 40 opcodes total, including I/O, sound, and flow control. Since most computers of that era were very limited in terms of memory, most CHIP8 games are very small. (typically less then 256 bytes). Several games are available from the S-CHIP page: http://www.stack.urc.tue.nl/~maartenh/hp48gx/chipgame/ 4.7.1 DOS Chip8 and VChip-8 [MS-DOS] Text and VGA versions of a CHIP8 emulator.

[Unix & X] Development of a Unix based CPC emulator has been announced by Wayne Gratton <wayne.gratton@uk.sun.com>. 4.11 CoCo 2, Dragon 32/64 The CoCo 2 and the Dragon 32/64 machines are basically the same. The largest differences between them involve different versions of BASIC, and a parallel port on the Dragon (the CoCo had none). There are some subtle differences as well (such as the keyboard wiring and I/O port configuration) that make the ROMs incompatible. Not all emulators take these changes into account. Notably, the CoCo 2 emulator listed below will not work with Dragon 64 ROMs. A CoCo mailing list exists; its address is <coco@pucc.princeton.edu>. (This is also available on the newsgroup bit.listserv.coco). A Dragon mailing list exists; for more information, write to <dragon-list-request@grempc.demon.co.uk>.

(Also emulates Dragon 32/64 machines). This emulator runs just fine on any 80x86; due to speed considerations, though, a '386-33 or faster is recommended. Includes soundblaster support, debugger, variable speeds, and disk and casette emulation. Written by Jeff Vavasour <jeffv@physics.ubc.ca>. Note that there is also a CoCo 3 emulator available from the same author, but it is not shareware. For more information, mail the author.

David is planning to produce a Dragon emulator for Unix platforms. Tenatively, his development platform will be either Linux or SGI Indy. 4.12 DG Nova/Eclipse See also section 6.3. 4.12.1 Computer History Simulators This is a large project; it includes freeware simulators for the Data General Nova, the PDP-4, PDP-7, PDP-8, PDP-9, PDP-11, PDP-15, and the IBM 1401. They are intended for personal or educational use and are provided on an as-is basis. Support is not available, and commercial use is prohibited. The package also includes some demonstration software, including RDOS 7.5 for the NOVA, OS/8 for the PDP-8, and several versions of Unix for the PDP-11. On an Alpha 3000/600 workstation (three years old, 175Mhz - about equivalent to a Pentium 120), and compiling at the -O2 optimization level, the performance of all the simulators exceeds that of the original systems, except for the PDP-11, which is about 75%. Of course, the faster the host, the faster the simulator. Information on the project is available in the December '96 issue of _The Digital Technical Journal_. This project is coordinated by Bob Supnik <bob.supnik@ljo.dec.com>. See the documentation for individual authors' contact information. If you wish to contribute any programs, bug fixes, new drivers, new simulators, or ports to new operating systems, contact Bob Supnik <bob.supnik@ljo.dec.com>.

You need to obtain a ROM image for this emulator. Program: ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/system/Emulators/x48-0.4.0.tar.gz ftp://ftp.cis.com/pub/hp48g/uploads/x48-040.zip 4.18 IBM 1401 4.18.1 Computer History Simulators See section 4.12.1. 4.19 Macintosh See also section 3.7. 4.19.1 A-Max [Amiga] A commerically produced Macintosh emulator for the Amiga. The official version requires hardware for the ROMs; however, an illegal version of this program with the ROMs stored on disk is rumored to exist. See section 6.5.1. 4.19.2 Aladin [Atari ST] This program emulates a classic (64k) Macintosh on an Atari ST. It shipped as a cartridge which required you to add in real Macintosh ROMs. There is purportedly an illegal version of this program (MacBongo) which is programmed to work with ROM images. Aladin supports 640x400 resolution, runs at the ST's 8MHz, addresses up to 4Mb of RAM, and works with the ST's parallel and serial ports. Starting with version 3.0, Aladin supports access to hard drives. Aladin was manufactured by German company ProficomP, and distributed in the UK by Eidersoft and Signa Publishing. It is doubtful that it is still distributed. In 1988, the price was about UKP 170 (about US$265). 4.19.3 Basilisk [BeBox] A beta release of this Macintosh emulator is now available. It is based on the 680x0 emulation from UAE (see section 4.4.2). You must obtain a Macintosh ROM to operate this emulator. Currently emulates a Mac Classic only. Under development by Christian Bauer <cbauer@iphcip1.physik.uni-mainz.de>. Homepage: http://www.uni-mainz.de/~bauec002/BBMain.html Program: ftp://cocoon.ghb.fh-furtwangen.de/Be/DeBUG/cebix/BasiliskV0_4.tar.gz 4.19.4 Emplant [Amiga] See section 6.6.1. 4.19.5 MagicSac [Atari ST/TT] Emulates a Mac Classic on an Atari ST or TT computer. Produced by Gadgets by Small. 4.19.6 ShapeShifter [Amiga] ShapeShifter is a shareware Macintosh-II emulator for the Amiga. Currently, this program supports only 32-bit-clean programs; it does not support (or require) an MMU. ShapeShifter requires AmigaOS 2.1, a 68020 or better, 4 Megs of RAM, Macintosh ROM images, and the Macintosh system software disks. ShapeShifter supports color displays up to 256 colors on AGA Amigas, access to all Amiga I/O from inside Macintosh programs, concurrent Macintosh and Amiga programs, multichannel sound, shared clipboards, and full speed emulation. Upon paying a registration fee of US$40 or 50 DM, you will receive a key which allows SCSI driver support and hard disk partition support.

The most recent version allows Mac double density disks to be read in the ST's drive. The reveiws claimed that it had good compatiblility and speed. (Furthermore, the emulated Mac had a screen of 640x480, instead of the 512x384 that the Mac Plus sported.) Produced by "Gadgets by Small." (Although it is doubtful you could get a copy from them now...) 4.19.8 vMac (portable) This is an effort (a la UAE) to develop a Macintosh machine emulator onto which an operating system can be loaded. Current development efforts are being done under MS-DOS, but the eventual aim is to have a portable emulator. At present, it is in an *extremely* early stage of development, and is soliciting help. The CPU is based on the 680x0 emulation present in UAE (see section 4.4.2). A mailing list should be available shortly.

Requires MSX ROM images. They may be available from the MSX homepage (see section 4.20). 4.20.4 PC MSX-2 emulator [MS-DOS] The same program as described in section 4.20.3 for emulation of an MSX-2. Program: ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/msx/pcemu/msx099b1.arj 4.20.5 fMSX [Unix, PowerMac, MS-DOS] This package includes C sources for a portable MSX/MSX2/MSX2+ emulator, and screen/keyboard drivers for Unix/X and MSDOS. fMSX has been tested on following Unix systems: NetBSD FreeBSD Linux SunOS Solaris OSF/1 Ultrix Irix It has also been ported to the Amiga (see section 4.20.6), PowerMac and IBM PC. No decent drivers exist for the PowerMAC yet. The most recent verision of the MSX/MSX2 emulator (0.9) includes disk support and support for several different kinds of MegaROM cartridges. Version 1.0 is die to be released "very soon." The MS-DOS version is now at version 1.2.3. Written by Marat Fayzullin <fms@freeflight.com>.

The latest version, 1.3, includes support for virtual tape, creation of diskimages, and a few vital bugfixes. fMSX Amiga split off from the main development branch at an early stage and has become a rather different program than the other fMSX:es. It currently supports MSX disks (both real and virtual), cartridges of all sizes, and virtual tape. It boasts fairly good-sounding PSG and SCC emulation, although not both at the same time. Despite the high version number, MSX2 features are still not complete. VDP command emulation leaves a lot to be desired. MSX1 emulation is complete. fMSX Amiga requires Amiga OS 2.0, an 68020 or better, 350KB chip memory, and 1000KB fast memory. It will make use of newer versions of the OS, faster CPU's, and more memory, if available. The entire program is controlled through a font sensitive GUI. Ported by Hans Guijt <h.guijt@inter.nl.net>.

It is based on code originally written by Bill Haygood. The simulated machine is a PDP-8/E with 4K words of memory and an ASR 33 console teletype. Optionally a MC8-E memory extension (with up to 32K words of memory), an EAE, an auxiliary ASR 33 teletype, a PC8-E high speed paper tape reader and punch, a RK8-E disk system, and a LP8-E line printer. A real time clock can be attached to the simulated PDP-8/E. For each device, there is a separate window which displays the internal state of the device. The user can view and edit the PDP-8 memory content as octal dump, assembler instructions and typed data (ASCII, integer, floating point,...). Other features of the simulator are breakpoints, break opcodes, single step execution, and a trace mode for the PDP-8/E. The teletype support uses standard Macintosh text editor windows.

It uses tape image files for tape I/O simulation; support is also provided for loading tapes directly. This program can emulate the Spectrum 48, Spectrum 128, and Spectrum +2. This emulator includes a machine-code monitor, Turbo Copy, a built-in tape image management utility (including the ability to load tape images directly from a real tape), a built-in utility to convert Spectrum images to .EXE files for running independent of the emulator, and a Comm program for the Spectrum (to allow transfer of files from the Spectrum to the PC.) All of these features have now been incorporated into the emulator, and are accessable via a menu system. Mouse support is included. Enhancements for the most recent version include several speed enhancements, bugfixes, HP Laserjet support, Microdrive emulation, modular device drivers, support for undocumented Z80 features, and better configuration support. The documentation contains a full reference for ZX BASIC. This emulator is completely free software; it has been released into the public domain. Donations of any amount are accepted.

The minimums required to run it are a 286 AT system with EGA. A 386-DX/33 is recommended for real-speed (?) emulation. "V9t9 v6.0 now supports noise, real speech, real RS232/PIO, disk images, three voices on a PC speaker, true keyboard scans, and demonstrations, in addition to the Adlib sound, full graphics, and speed that have always been in the earlier versions. "For legal reasons, V9t9 includes no TI ROMs of any sort, but comes with a transfer program that will move all the supported ROMs, modules, and 90k disk images from your 99/4A to your PC, ready for emulation." [Reposted with permission] Mr. Swartz has since become disgruntled, and will not be releasing or supporting v9t9 in the future. Source code is now available. It's worth pointing out that TI99EMUL (see section 4.37.3) includes ROM images; in order to use these, you need to make the following modifications: run the v9t9 utility "swap" on the rom.bin file. Call this 994arom.bin. You then need to pad the grom0.bin, grom1.bin, and grom2.bin files out to 8k; concatenate these to a single file, called 994agrom.bin. Place these new files in the v9t9 ROM directory. The only problem you may encounter is that the TI99EMUL GROMs skip over the video chip initialization code, so the two startup screens don't appear. The program below will pad and concatenate the GROM files. #include<stdlib.h> #include<stdio.h> #include<io.h> void main(){ int i,j,x,k=0; char mem, buff[80]; FILE *infile, *outfile = fopen("994agrom.bin","wb"); for(i=0; i<3; i++){ sprintf(buff,"grom%d.bin",i); printf("Reading chip %d from %s...

In a way, it can be considered the conceptual father of all "computers" as we know them. Turing machines have some interesting properties, including the theoretical property of being able to simulate any system that can be described mathematically, given enough memory. This concept has been often applied to mathematically 'prove' that every machine can be emulated. Unfortunately, most of the emulators are named very similarly, so it can be difficult differentiating them.

These emulators are based on Marat's Z80 code (see section 2.12.1). Currently, many of them are in very preliminary stages. They are all available as source, and include a compiled binary. You must acquire ROM images before any of these emulations will do you any good. See the homepage for more information.

[MS-DOS] This is a multi-game arcade game emulator; basically, it appears to be a 6502 and Z80 emulator with additional hardware modules added on. This allows you to load in various arcade ROMs into the emulator and play them. Currently, hardware support is provided for Galaxians, Frogger, Amidar, Space Invaders, Pacman, and many others. Due to the fact that copyright laws prohibit distribution of ROM images without permission, no images are provided with the emulator -- it is currently targeted at collectors who have stand-up arcade units already. Future support will probably include 6809 and 680x0 based arcade games.

The system requirements for the PC version are an 80486/33 or faster, 2 Megs RAM (less if you don't want sound), MS-DOS or Windows 95, VGA graphics, and a 2x or faster CD-ROM drive. The Windows package also includes video clips of interviews, rare artwork, etc (this portion requires 4 Megs RAM, MS-Windows, and SVGA). The package should be priced at about US$30-40. Check your local software houses. The Sony PlayStation version was released in late March 1996. It may have some modifications to the game code -- there have been reports that, for example, the coin-op patterns for Pac-Man do not work. The newer PC version, optimised for Windows 95, uses DirectX for the graphics, has the sounds stored as .wav files (so you can use them as system noises), and a different control panel which allows enabling the Joust pterodactyl bug. It still has the old DOS executables on the CD-ROM, though, if you prefer to play them that way (just copy the executables over to your hard drive). An Arcade Classics 2 (the Atari collection) is available for the PlayStation ONLY at the moment; it contains missile command, centipede, battlezone, super breakout, asteroids, and tempest.

Currently, Defender, Robotron, and Joust are available. Also, a patch is available which allows the Stargate (Defender II) ROM to work with the Robotron emulator. Digital Eclipse, the developer, can be reached at +1 510/450-1740. They sell the games for about US$8.00 each.

No, you can't play any games on it or anything like that, but it's a neat concept. Written by Steve Hawley <hawley@adobe.com>. The homepage includes a web interface to the available noises.
