This article provides a link to download version 2.0 of the Z80Emu program. The program is now in a proper Windows install program. I have tested the program under the following versions of Windows; XP 32 bit, Vista 32 bit, Win7 32 and 64 bit, and Win8 32 and 64 bit versions. This version of Z80Emu contains support to create and manipulate the disk pack files used in the Mini80 project.
To install this version of the Z80Emu program download the zip file containing the Z80Emu 130831 setup program. Extract the setup file then run the setup program to install the Z80Emu program.
1) The program now expects all of the data files, disk images... to be in the "Public Documents" folder in folder called "Z80Emu". If you used a prior version of the program you must move your old data files to the new working path. For example on a Win7 system the new data path is always "C:\users\public\documents\Z80Emu". The prior versions used the path that Z80Emu program was launched from as the working data path.
2) The TTY terminal has been updated to correctly display TAB characters and to reduce the flickering effect when updated. The cursor now flashes to make it easier to see.
3) The COM port configuration window now has a button to allow the selection of the com port from a list of installed com ports. Windows com port numbers greater then COM8 are now supported.
4) The disk manager window in the Z80Emu program has been updated to create and manipulate the CPM disk pack files used by the MIN80 project. I have posted an article with a quick overview of the new disk pack file features in the Z80Emu program that relate to the Mini80 project. Currently the Z80Emu program can create and manipulate Mini80 disk pack files but does not use them as disk images in the emulator. A disk image file used by the Z80Emu program uses the same format as the disk images used in the Mini80 disk pack file. This allows entire Z80Emu disk files to be imported and exported from/to the Mini80 disk pack file. The Z80Emu disk manager can import and export files from your windows PC directly to any disk in a Min80 disk pack file.
