The Turbo CPC by Tobias Gubener has been updated, this time with a new graphics mode that is provided by a new version of the system flash V0.47. The new mode increases the pixel rate to 33Mhz (before : 25Mhz), giving the possibbility to display a higher resolution. The old 25Mhz mode is also still available, because the new mode reduces the number of colours to 4096 (12 bits). All files have been added to the the download area of the official C-One website.



06/14/2005 - 22:30 - Genesis8 Contiki v1.2 devel 1

Kevin Thacker has released a new port of Contiki for Amstrad CPC. You can download this new port.

Insert the disc and type RUN"CONTIKI"

You will see the OS startup and load some programs. This version is slow and drawing the display is slow too; this is not optimised and uses the firmware for drawing. Clearing the screen is currently done by plotting lots of space characters !

The directory browser doesn't work yet, and none of the internet apps (ftp, webserver) will work.

But from the Contiki menu choose 'Run program...' and try each of these : about.prg, calc.prg, confedit.prg, editor.prg, shell.prg, process.prg

Kevin will continue to work on this and make the internet programs work with the CPC Booster+. He will then connect his CPC6128 to the internet and host some simple webpages.

Contiki is compiled with Small Device C Compiler (S.D.C.C.). It's a freeware, retargettable, optimizing ANSI - C compiler that targets the Intel 8051, Maxim 80DS390 and the Zilog Z80 based processors. A new version of S.D.C.C. is available since the 12th May 2005.
