RPCEmu 0.9.3

Post by flibble »

A new version of RPCEmu is available, 0.9.3

http://www.marutan.net/rpcemu/

Changes in this build
  • Easy-Start bundles
    • Two ROM/Disc Image sets are now available to make setting up RPCEmu as simple as possible. both are configured with networking by default.
      • RISC OS Direct, a version of the RISC OS 5 based distribution with many extras, ideal for running recent applications
      • RISC OS 3.71, an older '26-bit' version of RISC OS, ideal for running 'classic' applications.
    • Both are pre-setup with a large number of applications, tools, and both ship with !Store and PackMan package managers for installing more.
  • ARM
    • Correct several issues related to the MSR instruction
    • Correct several instruction decoding issues
    • Generate undefined instruction exceptions in the correct places of the instruction set
    • Implement ARMv4 (StrongARM) Load store extensions
    • Make ARMv4 extensions only available when configured as ARMv4
  • Floppy Discs
    • We now support loading of DOS and Atari 360KB (.img) disc images into the floppy drives.
  • Other fixes
    • Settings files and CMOS ram files are saved as changes are made to them, so these settings are retained even if the program is closed abnormally.

I am attempting to use this on MacOs Catalina.

I actually got it going once properly but now every time I try, I get a low res screen after *desktop and no HDFS.

Where about in the application is the configuration file and are there compilation instructions for MacOs anywhere to work from source?

There is a macOS port in progress. Have a look at the mailing list.

Hi,

I have compiled both RPCEmu for v3.71 and v5.24, on Debian 10, on a corei7 laptop.

All work well, except, I can not change the video settings, is there something else I need to do to get 800x600 display.
Regards,

Derek

Try the obvious one first...

In RISC OS, go to Configuration > Screen and choose another monitor type (it defaults to "Auto" which restricts you to 640x480).

You can choose a real monitor if you want (e.g. "Acorn AKF85") but "Other > Generic" offers an extended range of screen sizes.

Hi,

I have now got RPCEmu running with RiscOS 5.27, which looks very nice on my Linux computer, the mouse integration is better with RiscOS and the Linux host system.

I like the fact I have the same RiscOS version on the Raspberry Pi and RPCEmu, makes both system really upto date.

Just have figure out how to connect to an Econet network.
Regards,

Derek
