If you do a diskcopy, the Kontron copies track by track ... I'll see if I can do a layout with a hi res photo and show the blinkenlights.

SASI will be a bit more complicated since we don't have schematics (there is some small custom DMA circuit that needs to be emulated and isn't described in the manuals).

For now, I've added the two RS-232 ports to the driver. Here's how to test them:

Start MAME with:

Code
mame psi98 -flop1 kos605d -flop2 util605d -rs232a null_modem -bitb socket.127.0.0.1:1234

(attaches the null modem to serial port a, and connects it to port 1234 on the local computer)

Start PuTTY now and tell it to connect to localhost:1234 with connection type "raw".

Let the emulated system boot now, open the TAB menu and configure the RS-232 port to 2 stop bits.

Then enter the following commands:

Code
IODC $PSIA=ACTIVE

(load serial port a driver)

Code
IODC I-5=$PSIA

(attach this driver to input channel 5)

Code
IODC O-5=$PSIA

(attach this driver to output channel 5)

Code
PT

(start simple terminal program)

At this point you should be able to see any entered keys in the PuTTY window, as well see everything typed into PuTTY in the emulated system. Here are some screenshots:

You know, if you describe it like this, KOS almost makes sense smile
Again, great going!

I couldn't figure out how to make the drive LEDs work, but the artwork is in place smile

Have a look at the Kaypro, its artwork shows the drive leds.

That looks great!

We need the drive select lines for the drive leds, which are currently not generated by the upd765, it just auto-selects the right drive. The kaypro uses a wd controller so it doesn't have that problem. I'll think about a good way to add the signals to the driver.

Thanks!

@Robbbert: A good example for a driver that shows Drive LEDs is rainbow.cpp but that uses, as Duke notes, the WD floppy driver. Kaypro (also WD) has the artwork for LEDs in place, but the driver isn't activating them.

@Duke: x68000 has drive LEDs and uses a 765 derivative, maybe that's a starting point.

BTW, I have a Kaypro 10 ... if I can get anything from it to supply the missing bits for the driver, just holler.

Maybe I have different artwork for the Kaypro II. One thing to note on the Kaypro II (and on a real one) is that the LED indicates the drive is selected, rather than being used.

The Kaypro 10 issue is that we had no info on the hard drive and its controller. That is why it's marked as not working.

@Duke: great idea smile

Thanks to Duke's last changes, the drive LEDs now work in the Kontron PSI98 layout.

I've created a stub layout and submitted the changed driver and stub layout with a GIT pull request. Unfortunately anything I submit is sucked into one big pull request that now contains the AEG Olympia Olytext 30 addition to pc.cpp, the BIOS additions to europc.cpp and the Kontron stuff. HELP!

The more elaborate layout and backdrop is here:
