TI Emulate
« on: October 18, 2010, 08:26:57 am »
Hello,
I worked a bunch on TI Emulate last night, which, for those of you who don't know, is a .NET based z80 emulation library geared towards calculators that I will be using in tiDE.  I'd like to thank calc84maniac for his excessive help on the matter, it was quite useful.  I support roughly 30 opcodes at the moment, and two ports.  All registers as well as the CPU bus are properly emulated.

Can't wait for you to post it here.

.NET? VB, C#?

Yup, if he makes it work minimally, I'll be so happy: 'cos I'll be able to program ti83/84.

And sometimes stopping capture doesn't work x.x (usually with extremly long screenshots and when changing emulation speed and doing lots of other stuff in the meantime, though). Also everytime a new release comes out it breaks lots of stuff so when you get a working version, keep a backup copy before updating x.x. I hope it gets finished but it seems that they are not planning to add stuff SirCmpwn needs to interface with tiDE, so basically, this is why he needs to write his own emu.

SirCmpwn one thing I wonder: How will your emulator handle grayscale? Will it be like WabbitEmu kinda? Virtual TI had nice 4 lv grayscale but it looked terrible with 3 level grayscale.

Would there be something wrong with using dlls? I know with old stuff they can't be signed/registered on Windows Vista/7 anymore. Take for example two of my Visual Basic 6.0 games in the downloads section (ANIGIF.OCX and DAXCTLE.OCX)
