And, dunno, Xevious puts bogus CG window values, making the sprites to not be visibile on the left.


Thanks for the fix. smile

Hi, mz2500 emulation is great. I love it.
But, when I tried to input a BASIC program,
I couldn't enter some characters.
Could you add, for example

PORT_CODE(KEYCODE_STOP) PORT_CHAR('.')

just after

PORT_BIT(0x40,IP_ACTIVE_LOW,IPT_KEYBOARD) PORT_NAME(".")

I think you can find the codes to add in fm7.c.
Thank you.

A known problem.

Try to paste following line:

ABCDDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234567890!"$%&/\()=?`<>:;,.-_'#+*

You will be surprised. smile

if the PORT_BIT is already in the driver, you don't need any source change.

just press TAB > Input (This System) and you can map the '.' input to whatever key you want...

Does anybody know how to load Dust Box programs in Sharp MZ-2500? Notice that you can skip the "SIO" check by keep pressing SPACE key on the 256 colors artwork (and obviously you need interlace enabled, otherwise it refuses to run).

I've been able to start it. But it looks like it is a compilation of text files.

The following keys I found to work: Direction keys moves the pointer. choose with space or z-key. then move page with either space or F2. F1 gives music on or off. F3 is previous page. F4 opens Print options. press F4 again to print. F5 exits.

Some images:

I've actually loaded one of these items successfully, it was a PD quality game (dunno how I've did it obviously). And no, I think that floppy loading is too slow to be just a collection of texts.

The text balloons at the anime girl screen of vol. 11 are usage instructions. It's designed for a mouse but you can fake it with the keyboard using the arrow keys to move, Space as button 1, and Return as button 2. To run a program, move the pointer over it and double-click (press the spacebar twice). To exit back to the menu, press Shift + Break (Break is not mapped to a key in the driver by default).

Thanks for that smile

Sharp MZ-2500 emulation should be enoughly good now, there are still a bunch of unemulated features but they are hard to test them out with Dust Box games (it requires a lot of time with current fdc timings) so I'll pass for now.

Anyway new day new driver (with some hara ... help from Charles MacDonald ^^'):

EDIT: Etabeta, could you please confirm if this is fixed for the other two mentioned games as well? -> http://bugzilla.mess.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1503
