This system is listed as working. Should all snapshots work with the spectrum system? Or are there known bugs booting some snapshots?

Are you having a problem with a specific snapshot? If so, which one? How was it created? How about loading the same software from cartridge or cassette?

The *.z80 snapshots should work as before: I have begun cleaning up and rewriting the existing implementation and added support for other formats, but the *.z80 code has remained unchanged apart from minor modifications.

Generally speaking, the ZX Spectrum driver shows a good degree of compatibility, provided the program doesn't rely on the features listed at the beginning of drivers/spectrum.c: if you find the keyboard unresponsive, maybe it's not MESS' fault: try changing the config switch from "Issue 2" to "Issue 3" (or viceversa).

99% of snapshots work that i've used but Nebulus in this zip doesn't boot in mess. Perhaps i added the bug wrong? How can you load it via a cassette when it's a snapshot?

http://bugzilla.mess.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1930

works ok in spectaculator. The z80 shots have "worked as before" since the same problem occurs in older messes.

I also noted this in the 0.137 release. I mainly use MESS to play a game of Atic Atac once in a while and discovered that none of the files I have no longer work in the latest version.
I've these:
ATICATAC.Z80
ATICATAC.TAP
ATICATAC.SNA


Could it be that I need to do something different in 0.137 that I've missed?

Fixed in svn 7577. If you can't build it from sources, BobZ SVN build will be available soon.

So, JoJo, will you try to fix the .z80 snapshots, please? It's probably the most used format, but 128k snapshots are very problematic. Thanks! smile

I'm having problems with keyboard input and the display when using the spectrum.c driver.

Neither of the following hardware versions:

- Issue 2
- Issue 3

allow the ZX Spectrum to recognize the keyboard in the following
game (.z80 snapshot)

Sabre Wulf (1984)(Ultimate).z80

The Spectrum +2e/+3e/128 keyboards will respond but no in game graphics are displayed after pressing '0'.

Mess Version: SVN r13572 (64-bit)
OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)

Can anyone else please confirm/deny?
