Merry Christmas everyone!

I decided to not wait any longer and give you a first Beta Release of the new O2EM so you have something to play with in the christmas holidays ...

here it is:

so far unfortunatly only a windows version, source can be requested by PM ...

biggest news:
- C7420 emulation: to jump right in, decompress o2em somewhere on your harddisk and either start it by double clicking and selecting the c7420.bin ROM or type
o2em -config=c7420

on the BASIC screen press F9 to load heli.bas (or simply type CLOAD "heli.bas" for the full (and slow) experience)
type "run" and off you go :-)

have fun and let me know any bugs ! (its beta after all ...)
I am especially intrested if you find games that worked in 1.18 and don't work any more in 1.20 !!

EDIT: in C7420 mode use F12 to exit the emulator!! (ESC is one of the keys on the G7400 keyboard ...)
read the docs to learn more about all the changes  (docs/changelog.txt) and new keys (docs/o2em.txt)!

I was thinkin about a snake competition :)
Well Martian Treath is a nice game, to

hm ... are you using an old version of O2em ? or have I reintroduced the error of the wrong recognition of tokens ??  (Score should be score and not sc r ...)

Ooops. I was thinking "Why am I pressing the letters and not happens", reply: I was sing the older version.


Great news, even though personally I'd prefer to see improvements on the timings for the euro games in order to make them playable (Syracuse, Backgammon, etc.) seeing C7420 emulation starting sounds promising. Would this mean we might be able to get Chess emulated one day? That would be epic.
Great effort manopac.


I can't seem to figure out how to change the Bios in O2EM 1.20.

Can anyone give me a hint?

Ne tirez pas sur le administrator!


it should not have changed to previous versions (I always try to maintain full compatibility) - so you can just use the switches:


or you specify it explicitly using one of this

-bios=file    Set the file name and directory to find the console
         bios. By default it looks for a file named o2rom.bin.
                You can use a bios file from an Odyssey2, Videopac or
                Videopac+ console. If you want to run VP+ games (in
         VP+ mode) then you need a VP+ bios.

(eventually in combination with this:
-biosdir=path Set the directory to find the console bios. By default it
         looks for path named bios

Can you tell me the motive (or probably motives) why a game work in O2em and not on real machine?
