New Release

Larger front panel screen size. The original code assumes an 800x600 SVGA screen (and is sized to 640x320). Time to take advantage of larger screens!

General Notes

  • Please review the release notes included with the distribution as it includes important information relating to this release.
  • I found the more recent versions of HyperTerm (included with Windows) handle TCP connections beautifully. So, I just created a desktop icon for a "localhost" connection and use that with the Altair32. Also, the current version of the emulator adds support for the Windows Console, so it has a "terminal" built in.
  • Disk image management code works fully with no issues. CP/M, AltairDOS and Microsoft Disk BASIC are fully functional. Several "utility" disks are included including a "developers" disk.
  • For those interested in programming in 8080 assembler, here is a scan of the instruction set information from the MCS-80 data book.
