Stetson Progress
« on: May 12, 2011, 07:38:50 pm »
Hello,
Some of you may know that benryves once wrote an emulator known as Stetson.  He eventually dropped this project, but I came to the point where I needed a TI-83+ emulator written in C# for tiDE.  Lucky for me, there was already a working one ready by benryves!  I've picked up this project from him, and have begun my own work on Stetson.  First of all, this is where I picked it up from:

It had a screen, with keyboard mapped buttons (missing two buttons as well).  There was no debugger and only limited port implementation.  Flash control was working, but it was unprotected and flash was perpetually unlocked.  It had support for the LCD delay (which makes grayscale work), as well as full implementation of the z80 processor, and basic linking.
Since I got a hold of it, I have changed the GUI to this:

The virtual keypad is fully functional, and the memory viewer as well (though I have not yet completed the ability to modify its contents).  Here's what I've added:
-Linux compatability
-Protected port control
-Protected ports
-Fixed screen off state
-Virtual keyboard
-Memory viewer
-Pause/resume emulation
-Fixed broken keyboard mappings
-Added ROM selection dialog

Here are things I have planned to add:
-Finish memory viewer
-Register/status viewer/editor
-Disassembler
-Remaining ports
-15 MHz support
-Source level debugging integration with tiDE
-Sound
-Specialised debugging for KnightOS and GlassOS (the latter requiring more effort)
-GIF recording
-Improved file sending

Any feedback or feature requests?

Woah, that looks really nice/useful. Feature-wise, can't think of anything right now, seems like you have most of it covered between the two lists

Nice :D

That looks awesome. Can't wait to see this, especially with the tiDE integration stuff :)

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

Very cool. I'm assuming this is for the 83+ family only?

Feature idea: Virtual linking between 2 calcs.

Also, somewhat unrelated: What is GlassOS? I either missed it or am just unfamiliar with it.

-Linux compatability
O.O

Very well SirCmpwn, I'd also like a few other things like speed of emulation (100%, 200%, 50%, ...).

Can't wait for a beta release or a RC.

This looks promising; I hope there's an RPM release.

It's an OS project for the 83+/84+ family over at Cemetech. It's being made in C with SDCC, if I'm not mistaken.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

You got it.

z80 Family, yes.  Virtual linking, yes (this is already done for linking between emulator<->real calc.
GlassOS is an OS being developed by AHelper over at Cemetech in C.

Emulation speed modding is planned, and a beta will probably be sooner than you think.
This looks promising; I hope there's an RPM release.
RPM?

Ah, I see.  I'll do my best to get it into as many repos as I can.

Also, I've finished the memory viewer, just double click a value to change it.  I've also almost completed the disassembler.

@Sir: Good to hear. When you say Z80 family do you mean there is a possibility of support for other Z80 models as well (TI-73, TI-82, TI-83, TI-85, TI-86)?

Can it also emulate the ti-84 plus?

Feature request: step by step debugging (like ti flash debugger)

This is looking great (and the screenshot looks much like pindurTI, btw)

EDIT: when i posted this, i first got a database error saying it wasn't posted succesfully, then an error saying i've already submited this post. Strange...
