Autosiril V1 Released

posted by nix./site

After many years of its' development, Siril has finally uncovered one of his top secret projects, Autosiril. With its' help, it's possible to convert songs from MIDI to a Vortex Tracker Improved text file and then to a ProTracker 3 module (pt3), for the use on the real hardware. For now, Autosiril relies on the command-line interface, which means it may take a while to learn its' features.

It's also highly recommended to edit the module after it's converted because the results may not sound perfect at all. :)

Download it here. See the full article for the instruction manual in English.

Brand New ZX Spectrum Emulator for Jupiter Ace

posted by news

Antoniovilenna published his new emulator for Jupiter Ace.

Project page in Spanish:

Try it in a Jupiter Ace emulator:

Space to start basic typing. By pressing F7 you can toggle between B&W and Color.

With a game loaded:

Works on a real machine but requires RAM expansion (19K or 51K) and 2 banks of 8K of ROM, switching to the second bank after 100ms. Flash is emulated via software, so it works on a real machine. Color circuitery is not tested, so It's planned to be as simple as 3 ICs.

It's compatible with almost 100% ZX Spectrum pure BASIC games. PLOT, CIRCLE and DRAW are also emulated but only shows attributes on the screen.

Source code is here:

You can try your own local TAP games (remember, only pure BASIC programs). Drag and drop with the emulator and type LOAD"" or press F8.
