Updated a new version of Excalibur today (V1.1.3).
Finally all the normal addressing modes are done in this update. As I mentioned in the previous post: the final missing pieces were the 68020 (complex) addressing modes.
This took me lot longer than I expected. Not just because these addressing modes are complicated, but also because memory reading is involved.
Sorry for not blogging so much anymore, but time is a limited value these days ;).
Paolo keeps me pushing for a new version, so you have to thank him. Otherwise I would be too lazy most likely.
So far quite a few bugs have been fixed for the next version:
Hi my friends,
Most of you might already know about the nice rendered wallpaper that user Intercepto created on DeviantArt.com
If you don't you should definitely grab it and just have it in your collection
I've been battling with pthreads and signals. I couldn't seem to get Amiga processes and signaling system to function correctly using a simple pthread mapping. I should've figured this, since there is no simple pluginable replacement. There is the AmigaOS 4 pthread implementation, but it doesn't seem to take signals into consideration.
I'm really sorry I haven't updated this blog recently but as some you know I had many stuff involved in real life.
First was the birth of my lovely daughter that takes a great deal of my attention these days, but also a misfortune of having to move house since my former owner wanted it for herself.
Moving was done in min August and I can say I finally finished EVERYTHING :)
One of my very favorite things about the Amiga from the very first day I got my Amiga 1000 back in 1986 was the fact that it could emulate other computer systems. The Commodore Sidecar was a hardware box that attached to the Amiga to provide hardware level MS-DOS compatibility (remember, Windows 95 would not be available for another 9 years!).
Fredrik has been busy on the Amiga scene for many years and has produced a lot of very useful software. More information about Fredrik’s work can be found on his web site.
So you got your new AmigaOne (or for some of you, classic Amiga system from eBay!), and now you want to have fun! You open the package and start setting it up, and before you know it, it is 3 days later! What happened! Time warp!
