IDE option in Eightyone emulator

Post by Crayon21 »

What is the IDE option in Eightyone? what does it do?

I've noticed it is available for all the emulated computers so any help would be appreciated

I assume that FDC is for a “Floppy Disc Controller” and IDE is for “Integrated Drive Electronics” - so basically a hard disc controller. The terms were in common use for PC hardware back in the 80s.

As it’s a multi-platform emulator I imagine they are standard options, but how they apply to a ZX81 I would not know.
