/contrib/atari800/atari800

Atari 8-bit emulator for SDL

Atari800 is an emulator of Atari 8-bit computer systems including the 400, 800, 1200XL, 600XL, 800XL, 65XE, 130XE, 800XE and the XE Game System, and also of the Atari 5200 SuperSystem console. . The Atari Operating System ROMs are not available with this package, due to copyright.

/contrib/basilisk2/basilisk2

68k Macintosh emulator

Basilisk II is an Open Source 68k Macintosh emulator. That is, it enables you to run 68k MacOS software on you computer, even if you are using a different operating system. However, you still need a copy of MacOS and a Macintosh ROM image to use Basilisk II. . Some features of Basilisk II: - Emulates either a Mac Classic (which runs MacOS 0.x thru 7.5) or a Mac II series machine (which runs MacOS 7.x, 8.0 and 8.1), depending on the ROM being used - Color video display - CD quality sound output - Floppy disk driver (only 1.44MB disks supported) - Driver for HFS partitions and hardfiles - CD-ROM driver with basic audio functions - Easy file exchange with the host OS via a "Host Directory Tree" icon on the Mac desktop - Ethernet driver - Serial drivers - SCSI Manager (old-style) emulation - Emulates extended ADB keyboard and 3-button mouse - Uses UAE 68k emulation or (under AmigaOS and NetBSD/m68k) real 68k processor

/contrib/dosemu/dosemu

DOS Emulator for Linux

DOSEMU is a PC Emulator application that allows Linux to run a DOS operating system in a virtual x86 machine. This allows you to run many DOS applications. - Color text and full keyboard emulation (via hotkeys) via terminal. - Built-in X support, includes IBM character set font. - Graphics capability at the console with most compatible video cards. - DPMI support so you can run DOOM. - CDROM support. - Builtin IPX and pktdrvr support.

/contrib/esix/esix

PDP-8 Engineering and Scientific Interpreter eXtended

ESI-X was the first stored program scientific interpreter for the PDP-8. ESI was designed by Dave Waks on 8/3/66 and was vaguely based on RAND's JOSS. In 1967 Bob Supnik extended the program to support 8KW of memory, and this became the "ESI-extended" or ESI-X FOCAL was eventually the successor of ESI-X.

/contrib/fbzx/fbzx

ZX Spectrum emulator

FBZX is a Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulator for Linux/Unix. It can work over X or in a FrameBuffer console.

/contrib/kcemu/kcemu-common

KC 85/4 emulator - common files

KCemu is an emulator for the KC85 homecomputer series and other Z80 based microcomputers like Z1013, LC80, Polycomputer 880 and BIC A5105. The emulation supports a number of additional hardware, e.g. floppy disk drives and extended graphic modules. . This package contains files common to all architectures. . The Debian package does not contain the ROM images required to run the emulated machines. Please refer to the README.Debian file for more. . Some alternate keywords for the above: KC85, KC87, LC80, Z1013, A5105, Polycomputer 880 . For original programs and general information about the emulated computer systems have a look at http://www.kc-club.de/ and http://www.kc85emu.de/.

front-end for Wine

PlayOnLinux is a front-end for wine. It permits you to easily install Windows Games and software on Linux. It is advised to have a functional internet connection.


Fast 48k ZX Spectrum Emulator (common files)

Spectemu emulates the 48k ZX Spectrum, which uses the Z80 microprocessor. This package contains common configuration files and utilities which are or can be used by either the X11 or the SVGAlib frontend. . It emulates the Z80 processor as well as the 48k Spectrum's other hardware: keyboard, screen, sound, tape I/O. The emulation is very close to the real thing, but it is still quite fast (It was reported to be working well on a laptop with 486 at 25MHz!). On the other hand, the user interface is not the best. . Features include: - Sound support through Linux kernel sound-card driver. - Snapshot saving and loading (.Z80 and .SNA format) - Tape emulation: loading from tape files (.TAP and .TZX format) - Optional quick loading of tapes. - Saving to tape files. - Separate utility to save tape files to real tape - Configurable with config files and from command line


Fast 48k ZX Spectrum Emulator for X11

xspect is the X11 version of Spectemu which emulates the 48k ZX Spectrum, which uses the Z80 microprocessor. .

/contrib/vice/vice

Versatile Commodore Emulator

VICE emulates well the hardware of the Commodore Business Machines of the pre-Amiga era. Supported are the various Pets, the VIC-20, the Commodore 64, the Commodore 128, the CBM-II series, and the PLUS/4. . Some alternate keywords for the above: VIC20, C64, C=64, C64 DTV, C128, C=128, CBM-500, CBM-600, CBM-700, PLUS4 . . This package does not contain the various ROM images needed to actually use the emulators; they are available separately from other locations (see the README.ROMs file). A corporation in the Netherlands called Tulip holds the copyrights to the ROM images, and redistribution is not permitted, but VICE itself is unencumbered.


simple tool to work around common problems in Wine

Winetricks lets you install missing DLLs or tweak various Wine settings individually. It also has a menu of supported games/apps for which it can do all the workarounds automatically. . It can be used via GUI or commandline, whichever you prefer; the commandline mode is particularly useful as a building block in fancier wine frontends and in automated regression testing.

/contrib/xtrs/xtrs

emulator for TRS-80 Model I/III/4/4P computers

xtrs is an X-based emulator for the Tandy/Radio Shack line of Zilog Z80-based microcomputers popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It features cassette, floppy, and hard drive emulation, timer interrupt emulation, file import and export from the host operating system, support for most of the undocumented Z80 instructions, and a built-in debugger. Real floppy drives can be used, and, if an OSS-compatible sound driver is available, application-based sound can be played and real cassettes read and written directly through the sound card or via WAVE files. Several hi-res graphics cards are emulated and, in Model 4/4P mode, mice are supported. There is also real-time clock, sound card, serial port, joystick, and CPU clock speedup emulation. . xtrs requires ROM images from the original machines. The ROMs are copyrighted by Radio Shack and are not freely licensed. (Exception: in Model 4P mode, a freely-licensed boot ROM included with this package can be used to boot a Model 4 operating system from a diskette image.) . xtrs is maintained upstream at GitHub: see .
