Wow, it's been a while since the last one! But it's time again for an update. I have yet to add sending of files, so integrated debugging will be a ways off, but I have gotten the emulator integrated into tiDE. If you'd like to try it out, you can get the latest source code here
(windows only). Click on Tools>Options to modify the global settings (where you can specify a ROM file). Then you can use Debug>Launch Emulator to run the emulator with that ROM file. In addition, it's a great way to see the global settings implementation, which is generated at runtime (though not very well). I'll improve upon that later as well.
In other news, you can still use it to create 8xp files and ROM files, though the assembler does not work perfectly. If you'd like to try it out, I'd love to hear about your experiences trying to get your existing programs working. You can currently make quite a bit with tiDE, you just can't debug it (though with this update, we are one step closer).
