Re: ZX80 porting of Super Micro Chess 1K

So, the good news seems that the engine logic is working! ;)

Regarding the move input I didn't change, and last time yourself preferred the "flicker" version! If the ROM is bugged can it be corrected there? This weekend I'll try again on my ZX80. I'll try to ask also the opinion of Paul.

Re: ZX80 porting of Super Micro Chess 1K

It took me more than I originally tought but here there the first version of the 1K Real Chess for ZX80 !! Just the flexible verison, still not optimized and without openiing logic, but hope it's working. A big thanks to Paul Veltjens for the real HW support and Paul Farrow for the recursive step-ov...

In the meantime I would like just to show what I did with the trace (out 53) and some postprocessing scripts: an interactive navigation of all the engine calls equote]xecuted in the

Hope can work with my beloved fasmg compiler!... In the meantime...

Re: ZEsarUX 6.1 BETA

ZesarUX is a great emulator. The only area it really needs improvement is debugging: it seems that all the facilities are there but the user interface is not very "approcheable"... Maybe creating an extension for this fantastic editor https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/debugging , or similar ...

Re: Which emulator and assembler for the Mac?

An old question but anyway for my short but pretty intense personal experience I would surely recommend as others ZesarUX as the emulator, but FASMG with EZ80 includes as assembler! :) PS: I even posted time ago a quick start kit to develop "extreme programs" (why to use assembler if not? 8-) ) with...

Re: ZX80-help needed!

If you need to test on a standard ZX80 (4k rom) I can volunteer, let me know!
PS: until Dec.25th I'll be able to test probably immediately, else after half of January.

Happy hacking!

Re: ZEsarUX beta 5.1

Try Cpu transaction log (on debug menu) ;) I already did, time ago, but the result was a file of many gigabystes even for a very small computation, and it has to be post-processed to arrive to the identification of the number of execution of each instruction!... Anyway it is surely a good candidate...
