Robotron PC-1715W (yet another CP/M machine) WIP:

[Linked Image]

After that it does something that Z80DMA doesn't like and crashes MAME with fatal error ("Unknown base register").

Wikipedia says that some games for PC-1715 used printer for sound effects (bell, paper feed) - that'd be fun to emulate smile

WIP -- KES is a clone of iSBC-215 storage controller, but it's different internally (Z80 + Z80DMA + Z80CTC instead of 8089) and will need new code:

From the "why not" department:

PS/2-mode floppy controllers have a RDDATA bit in the SRB status register, which essentially samples flux transitions incoming from the drive (each transition toggles the flip-flop and its output is the RDDATA).

"MX:" is the format used by floppy controller on Soviet PDP-11 compatible desktops (the DVK series). Low level encoding is FM, and track format is not compatible with IBM 3740 -- http://torlus.com/floppy/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1384

MXONPC (http://pdp-11.ru/mybk/pdp11/DRV/MXONPC.RAR) is a DOS program written by Vladimir Poletaev in 1997 to recover data from such floppies on a Pentium-class PC. And with a bit of hacking, it works in MAME (at least some of the time):

PR coming soon.

Yet another obscure Soviet TV game -- http://alemorf.ru/comps/kroha/index.html. Apparently, never reached retail.

Extremely simple design -- a 8080, two joysticks and a beeper. Black and white output. A single cart with five games (Breakout, Tetris, Snake, Xonix, Choplifter). Soon in MAME smile

Stalk - a Roguelike for the PDP-11(-clones). Inspired by the same book and movie as the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. Haven't played it much yet, but it feels appropriately deadly and user-unfriendly (only 6 items in the inventory, no identify, all scrolls, potions and wands are random, and so on).

That's now committed, not enough to mark the driver WORKING but enough to boot and run some Apple games -- http://agatcomp.ru/Gamez/DSK/MASTER_SERGE.rar (via http://agatcomp.ru/Gamez/Tom23.shtml). Disks 10...18 from this collection don't boot yet.
