Prodatron finally released version 3.0 of his multi-platform operating system SymbOS that is available for Amstrad CPC, MSX, PCW / Joyce and (new) the Enterprise. I won’t bore you with all the details of this release, because the Changelist is huuuuuuuge, so read it by yourself ;-). But there are some neat features like ZIP / GZ decompression and new applications e.g. for Telnet or IRC. If you have one of those computers, you definitivly should check the new version and we CPC users can enjoy the network stack and more supported hardware with this release.

You can download the latest version from the SymbOS homepage and discuss it in the CPCWiki forums.

Shining, well known for his great games Defence and Pentomino, just released a Amstrad CPC version of the “Bad Apple” animation of the Touhou Project on the Evoke 2017 in Cologne / Germany. The hardware requirements are high, you need 1 MB RAM (e.g. X-Mem and Y-Mem) and a MX4 board. You can download the version at the end of the news and for the rest of us, Devilmarkus captured a video and uploaded it to Youtube:

A new version of Sugarbox, a Amstrad CPC emulator for Windows, was released. The main features of the new version are emulation optimizations, support for the PlayCity and Multiface-II hardware, ZIP support and various other improvements (see changelog for more information).
Be sure to test the new version of the emulator and download the latest version from http://sugarbox.free.fr.

Changelog:

  • [Gate Array]: Fix mode changing : Imperial Mahjong now looks better!
  • [Expansions]: Add support for the Playcity
  • [Expansions]: Add support for the Multiface II cards.
  • [Z80]: Complete recoding of the Z80 core. It now use the real M and T states, and handle WAIT states correctly. More accurate.
  • [General]: ZIP support (only zip file at the moment) for tape and disks
  • [IPF]: IPF created is striclty equivalent to the original dump (in term of MFM track)
  • [IPF]: Minor fixes in IPF reading
  • [DSK]: Fix some wrong behaviour. Dsk reading should be more reliable (and will no longer crash)
  • [DSK]: Fix a bug in saving DSK file. It should no longer crash (anyway, if you can avoid using it, prefer HFE or IPF format !)
  • [Emulation]: All peripherals are now running in the correct timings.
  • [FDC]: Index detection fixed on Sector writing (Imperial Mahjong is able to save its configuration)
  • [FDC]: Dump with missing tracks will no longer crash Sugarbox
  • [FDC]: Fix wrong behaviour for double sided dumps that needs flipping of disk (fix altered beast double sided CTRaw)
  • [FDC]: Fix wrong status than can set « Seek end » incorrectly in some cases

Roudoudou released a new version of his Zilog Z80 cross-assembler called Rasm. Of course it supports all the undocumented opcodes, but beside of that, you can use conditional macros, a floating point engine and several mathmatical functions. A special feature is the possibility to create a cartridge for the Amstrad Plus or the Amstrad GX4000 directly by assembling your source code and you can automatically add an AMSDOS header to your binaries. It also supports crunched sections (the coded will be loaded and crunched on the fly) for LZ48, LZ49, LZ4, ZX7, and Exomizer. It has also a compatibility option to support the widely in the Amstrad CPC used MAXAM syntax. You can download and discuss it at the CPCWiki forums and at the end of this news.

Changes in v0.57

  • more flexible preprocessor with macro parameters
  • new label prefix tag {BANK} to get the bank where is located a label
