After a year without updates it appears version 1,9 of the bacteria,
with the following new features:
- the problem of the version 1,8 that could not be sailed already
by tapes has been fixed. As in version 1,7 to move by the blocks
of the tape the keys F7 and F8 are used, F7 to back down a block
and F8 to advance a block.
- Aside I have put pauses in the tape automatic loading, now the
block is seen by which it is loading, and separate the pauses allow
you to see what load and the display screens. In everything
case when a game starting off of a file is compiled tap, in the
beginning takes place a pause in the emulator that allows you to
visualize the display screen per moments.
- Fixed the subject of recording of games, already games in SNAs
as in TAPs can be recorded as much. In order to record it is not
necessary to make nothing, is to say the emulator by defect records
all the movements that beams. It is at the time of compiling when
your elijes. If you press F5
you will to begin with obtain a autoexecutable of the game from
SNA, of the end of the load of TAP (with display screen), or of
the last time that pressed F3 (in case you want to see the end of
game). On the other hand if you press F6, besides to compile the
game it is compiled next to the recorded game, and as soon as you
execute you can see it it.
This is the most important newness of all. Also I have put two
I sweep blue that they indicate to you when a game is being repruduciendo,
and if you want to interrupt the reproduction for ponerte to play
you obtain it pressing F6.
The game takes a little in compiling, and rare points are seen.
This is not no problem is an indicator of the progress of the compression,
begins from down upwards because the compressor uses flexible parsing.
The black zones are zeros, and with them you can be made the idea
of the empty space of snapshot. It seems contradictory but one takes
more in compressing this data type, since the algorithm must make
more searches. This would be solved applying Run Lenght
Encoding in the beginning. But as I did not have left space I had
to use a truquito that worked bién enough: I happened of
4 minutes to 20 seconds in compiling a file with many hollows.
Good I do not coil more with the technical slang but this of the
compression has been enough duro, is so that you become an idea.
I use an own format, devised by me basing to me on which uses
apack but with different codes and greater compression. The decompression
routine also has been made in exclusive right for this emulator,
and necessarily it has had to be the same one that stops
to compress the feasible one of the bacterium; of this single form
I must stick the result of the compression to the decompression
valve that when it starts locates in another zone of memory. That
is which the only thing that loads in size the emulator is the compressor,
although enough. I have had
to trim part of the final message in version A (sound to blaster),
and also I annulled the emulation of joystick; although version
B (to speaker) me has exceeded space (5 bytes) and finally I have
been able to simetrizar the two versions. By the way if you press
F6 while you press another one
key the reproduction will have errors, as well as if you press the
keyboard while it is compressing.
- Another important newness is that by fín I have fixed
the aid screen, you only must press F1 within the emulator to throw
a look to him; he is not nothing of the other world but to occupy
1Kb he is not bad.
- Finally to request pardon by the disappearance of the official
Web in emumanía, the Link let work suddenly, and although
I tried to ponder itself in contact with webmaster of emumanía,
I did not dedicate the sufficient time to it to fix it. Luckily
thanks to Santiago Romero have provided with accomodations me free
in speccy.org and I hope that although it does not update the page
at least that this one exists. The Web that you are seeing she is
almost the same that the one of before, but with slight aesthetic
modifications, like for example the fact of not using frames.
Without nothing else that to say, I hope that you like the new
version, and also hope to have list soon the translation to English
of the page and the emulator.
