Hello community,

I'm currently making a new C.V. Emulator for Windows named E.mul T.two.

Why a new one ? because I want an emulator with lot's of debugging features to help homebrew developers.

Currently, it has all VRAM viewer,  memory view, callstack and I will add a profiler.

It also has SGM compatibility and MegaCart compatibility.

I'm currently trying to find some information about F18A, to add compatibility with this board.

So, my question are :

- does someone has an API in C/ASM for dev purpose on CV ?

- does someone has a test rom to help me to test the emulator with this new feature.

There is also a TI99/4a emulator that has fully implemented F18a support:  https://js99er.net   Asmusr on AA is the author

@Bmack86, I have the F18A documentation but didn't know that https://js99er.net  was compatible with it. I will check it, thanks for the link.

@digress, yep, got it ;) !

Thanks artrag, I currently have enough information to add F18A compatibility :)

I will contact Rasmusm if needed

Need screen showing symbols viewer (you can load your map file from sdcc if you want), sprites viewer, debug window with memory viewer (you can patch rom, ram, vram on the fly)  and current config screen without F18A, but coming soon I hope.

Still need also to add breakpoint & profiler because first beta release.

It is also only for Windows, because of use of C++Builder & Windows components.

Are you emulatoing the GPU on the f18a too or just the functionality? 

 

There is a plane section in tank mission for instance which actually runs a small bit of code using the f18a gpu directly is why i ask. It had to do with mass shifting of tiles after the the f18a pixel scroll reached 8 shifted pixels. That would probably fail otherwise.

To be honest digress, I need to study how does F18A works. If I can only emulate functionnality, I will do that.

If I also need more information I will contact you :)
