Script PC, ein IBM PC (286, 386, 486, 586 und XT) und Spectrum 48k Emulator für Windows, ist in einer neuen Version erschienen.

Script PC is a IBM PC (286, 386, 486, 586 and XT) and Spectrum 48k Emulator for Windows.

Version 0.002 (29.12.2008)
- decided to continue development of public releases of this branch of
SPC family of emulators, because SPC/Pro in development
yet (so it release was delayed to mid-2009). In any case all these
scripts/configs will be supported in SPC/Pro via "legacy" mode,
so no work will be lost (and many 8-bit configs will not be ported
to "native" SPC/Pro mode probably, because "legacy" mode is
sufficient for them - no need multiprocessor capabilities etc);
- current release is mostly about maintaince and preparation to
continue works from beginning of 2009 (i.e. contains bugfixes and
improvements mostly, almost without new devices/configs);
- some changes in GUI "look and feel", targeted to big resolutions;
- scripts now using new script core (but native recompilation of them
temporary not available, so them in some cases can be slower
compared to previous version - but insigniffically, because new
script core contains much faster interpretation engine, comparable
in speed with recompilation engine of previous core);
- added emulation of 8-bit CPU m6502 (but no configs used it yet);
- added support of configuring memory banks via scripts (and support
of Spectrum-128 ROM to show how it works);
- experimental emulation of IDE/ATA-controllers (EmuLib/Storage);
- started implementation of usefull debugging features in engine and
Debug Console (tracing, breakpoints on event/condition, statistic
etc). This process in early stages of development currently, but is
top priority for several ongoing releases.
- implemented R/W/E TLB support in x86-32 CPU family (paging faster);
- temporally disabled support of Virtual Mode Extensions (VME) in
P5/86 CPU (was incomplete in WIP3, need some fixing).
- several fixes in CPU x86-32 dynarec and emulation correctness;
- first release of ordinary SPC, in which several bootable floppy
Linux-es workable (at least TomsRtBt, Mandrake 7,8 and
Mandriva 2007 boot floppies). Some other OS-es can not work
in 386 Enchanced Mode because of incomplete port-level
emulation of several devices in this release. But so-called
Standard mode can be workable.
