[zx] Speccy 1.9

[1] @ !!! Wtorek, 2 Kwietnia 2013 23:19 CET [02-04-2013 23:12 CET]


Speccy, jak nie trudno się domyślić jest jeszcze jednym emulatorem całej gamy mikokomputerów Sinclaira/Amstrada a także ich klonów począwszy od oficjalnych Timexów a skończywszy na produkcja za wschodniej granicy. Posiada całkiem rozbudowaną listę peryferiów jaki możemy podpiąć do naszego wirtualnego spektruma i po pierwszym, uruchomieniu przynajmniej jeden niewybaczalny problem, który w tej wersji go dyskwalfikuje  - co jakiś czas ekran tego emulatora mruga, co jest wybitnie irytujące (Win7 x64, Ati5770). 

Ciekawostką jest fakt, iż autor Marat Fayzullin tego emulatora głównie zajmuje się pisaniem płatnych/darmowych (okrojona funkcjonalność i/lub reklamy) emulatorów pod Androida i Symbiana (fMSX, VGB, VGBA, iNES, MG, ColEm, Speccy, AlmostTI), z którymi jest ciut lepiej niż ze Speccy, jednak i one (przynajmniej w wypadku Speccy) nie powalają.

Spokojnie - to tylko dość egzotycznie rozwiązany full screen;)

  • Moved NMI and REWIND button handling inside the core Speccy code.

  • Added -sync/-nosync option to Speccy-MSDOS to sync screen updates to the timer (use -vsync for VBlanks).
  • Added -zoom/-nozoom option to Speccy-MSDOS that will zoom Spectrum display to fill the whole screen, using image softening algorithm.
  • Speccy-MSDOS now runs in 640x480x15bpp VESA screen mode when -zoom or -tv options used, otherwise it runs in 320x200x15bpp screen mode.
  • Switched Speccy-MSDOS from outdated DOS4GW to more up-to-date DOS32a extender.
  • Added [CONTROL]+[F8] key combination to Speccy-MSDOS to toggle display zoom on/off.
