SyX and TotO are hard working to get a new mass storage device ready for your Amstrad CPC. It is compatible with SymbOS and BonnyDOS and it will additionally come with an own ROM (ACMEDOS), which allows you to access the mass storage from BASIC via RSX commands. If you already own the Mother X4 board, you can just plug it into it and use it on your CPC. You can preorder it for 24,90 EUR in TotO’s webshop.

SyX created a Z80 definition file for the great Windows text editor Notepad++, so you can enjoy Z80 syntax highlighting in the editor now. It mainly supports the assembly syntax of VASM, but you can also add the MAXAM (or any other assembler) directives. You can read more about the the definition file and about some known bugs in the CPCWiki forums.

To install the language definition file, use “Language”, “Define your language” and “Import”.

After seeing some successful competitions on other platforms, SyX thought that it is a good idea to start a ROM game development competiton. The reason for the 16k limit is to open the compo for more participants, because small games are more probable to get finished than big games. Another reason for the ROM game competition is, that we have a lot of ROM boards around these days (e.g. the Megaflash or the Symbiface II) and we are also able to produce new cartridges for the Amstrad Plus since the ACID chip was reverse engineered, but we are missing more ROM games. You can read more about the competition (e.g. the rules, the prizes, some example code, etc.) in the CPC Wiki forums.

So if you have a great idea for a game, it is a good time to start working on it now Smiley.

Released on the 1st April, I thought that this is just an april fool, but it is real: SyX and TotO wrote an emulator, which is able to use the original Pacman arcade ROMs to emulate the game on the Amstrad CPC. The emulator itself is based on an Pacman emulator for the Sam Coupe and the ZX Spectrum by Simon Owen. If you want to use it, you have to put the original arcade ROMs of the arcade machine with an AMSDOS header into the disc image (e.g. with tools like ManageDSK). For more information please refer to the included “README.TXT” file. You can download the emulator from the CPCWiki forums.
