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).
