OffseT released a new version of his emulator for the MorphOS and Haiku operating systems. It emulates the Amstrad CPC old generation and the Amstrad Plus, too. The emulator was written from scratch, so it isn’t just a port of an existing open source Amstrad CPC emulator. Due to its very precise audio and video renderings, ACE should be your first choice to watch demos – if you have a MorphOS system around.
If you are a MorphOS or Haiku user and want to use your Amstrad CPC software under those systems, don’t hesitate and download it from the ACE homepage.

Changes:

  • Added management of plugins activation from ACE icon.
  • Fixed overflow detection in CRTC editor window.
  • Fixed the last kwown emulation issue of CRTC 3 (fixes Tennis Cup 2 intro).
  • Fixed wrong timing of OUT (0),A opcode when putting data on bus.
  • Added support for up to 4096K expansion RAM (compatible with MemCard 2M and CPC4MB).
  • Added support for new snapshot chunks MX??, so that up to 4160K can be stored.
  • Added preferences save from the menu (resynchronize the icon’s tooltypes with run time settings).
  • Improved joysticks plugin to make use on the sensors.library instead of the lowlevel.library (thanks to Szilárd Biró for his code examples).
  • Fixed small issues and made internal modifications to ease code portability.

Changes:

  • Reworked layout of several windows.
  • Updated german catalog (Stefan ‘polluks’ Haubenthal).
  • Added new icons for GUI, drawers, plugins and filetypes (Mathieu ‘Hwikaa’ Delaruelle).
  • Re-optimized emulation speed that had deteriorated in version 1.13 (ACE is now 5% faster).
  • Greatly improved CRTC 0 emulation.
  • Fixed some minor issues in emulation of CRTC 1, 3 and 4.
  • Improved internals to ease portability on AmigaOS and AROS.
  • Added support for breakpoints on Maxam and WinAPE BRK opcodes.
  • Improved some AREXX commands.
  • Updated the cross-development examples to use vasmz80_oldstyle assembler instead of pasmo.

Changes:

  • Migration from gcc 4 to gcc 5
  • Fixes in CRTCs emulation.
  • Added new APIs in the plugin interface.
  • Added new plugins for Kempston and AMX mice.
  • Added new plugin for joysticks (replaces internal emulation).
  • Fixed version string of the executable (it prevented Grunch from detecting ACE version).
  • Fixes in snapshots handling.
  • Fixes in tape to hard disc interface.
  • Automatic reconfiguration of the floppy disc drives depending on the inserted disc image.
  • Fixed a bug in ASIC SSCR mask.

Do you know the MIST-FPGA board? No? It is intended to rebuild old computer systems and consoles with it. I use the term “rebuild” because it fits better in combination with a FPGA than “emulate”, because there is no program running within the FPGA, but it is real hardware which is running. Confused :-)? Anyway, the name MIST is a combination of Amiga and Atari ST, and of course, both systems are already running on the systems together with a lot of other computer and console systems, too (e.g. Nintendo NES, Commodore 64, PC Engine, etc.). Since some time, there is also an Amstrad CPC core available for the MIST-FPGA board and it was released in version r004.7.2 some days ago. The new version features some bugfixes and support for the R-Type remake by Easter Egg. So if you own a MIST-FPGA board, give it a try. You can find more information about the installation of the Amstrad CPC core and the binaries on the MIST-FPGA GitHub page.
