Thanks JD but I think that would be the last thing he wants right now, a horde (you and me) of eager dumpers all over his precious collectors items! smile But in time he might be open to something like that. He seemed interested to learn MAME, I demoed the Esselte 100 work I ave done, and he said that he want to see how this Candela emulation project turned out as a first step. He has a lot of ABC computers so I am providing him some help to set up MAME for it.


Because I can

In that case, let us devs know about any questions you have regarding the Candela emulation. I would be happy to prove to this person that emulation is actually worthwhile. smile

Quick and dirty how-to:

- get MAME 0.177.
- build SIMH from git HEAD -- they haven't released anything since 2012.
- delete MAME's vt240.cfg, if any.
- start vt240 emulation in MAME and enter VT240's setup menu (Pause/Break key on PC keyboards). pdf/dec/terminal/vt240/EK-VT240-UG-003_VT240_Series_Owners_Manual_Dec84.pdf on bitsavers should help.
- set serial port speed to 9600 (bitbanger's default), save to NVRAM and exit emulation.
- add "set console telnet=1201" (1201 can be any TCP port number above 1024) to SIMH's config file and start SIMH using that config. It will start listening on that port but won't start simulation until something connects to it.
- start vt240 emulation again, this time using bitbanger device to connect to SIMH -- something like "mess vt240 -bitb socket.localhost:1201". "-bitb socket." is magic; replace "localhost:1201" with actual hostname:port of listening SIMH instance.

and voil'a (junk at the bottom is cause by https://github.com/simh/simh/issues/330):

Is it a MAME first, or are other emulators this far or farther?

Other emulators have been farther for a long time, but it's been arguably *the* white whale of MAME's ARM6 emulation up to this point. (Now that it's working, the Archimedes-based slot machines in aristmk5.cpp are the next white whale ;-)
