If this software is cool or useful to you, consider a small donation to the programmer! There is *no* need to pay to download and enjoy this software! But it's a lot of work and I do it in my so-called spare time, so a couple of dollars would be really appreciated! :)

Last Updates (max 5)

  • fix certain reset issues by enabling a forced breakpoint
  • throttling updates to improve consistency
  • added tests for VRAM file buffers to aid debug of code that overwrites them
  • fix disk access that writes right up to >3FFF (pCode card in particular)
  • disable F18A status register select debug
  • add warning on odd PC address being set
  • add support for F18A GPU: CALL,RET,PUSH,POP,SLC
  • updated HQ4X filter - new filter code and should fix corrupted graphics in DIB blit mode
  • reduce duplicated debug when setting top of VRAM

  • fix bug with multi-bit CRU instructions - byte flag was set wrong way around and broke register auto-increment
  • add support for F18A SPI flash interface (upgrade program runs now)
  • also means that CKON, CKOFF, LDCR and STCR on the F18A work now
  • fix sector allocation when writing to disk image files to more closely match original TI controller
  • add support for more of the F18A status registers and reading them from the host
  • move source to Github -

  • Minor bugfix - image disk file allocation performed more like the TI disk controller, doesn't overwrite copy protection on Bubble Plane

  • rewrote speech synth CPU halt system, but this didn't fix anything that I could see
  • bugfix in image disk sector allocation that would leave empty holes on the disk
  • bugfix in image disk writing cluster list that only wrote one sector per cluster ;)
  • change image disk sector allocation - FDRs at the beginning, data at the end. Makes for nicer layout
  • disabled VDP warning, it's still not quite right

  • Notes
    Source code is now on Github at
