You'd get music on the title screen of Dunjunz too (plug, plug!)

Re: programming the GMC module (SN76489 chip)

I suppose in general, very quick attack, decay pretty quick too but can probably vary that and then play with the frequency you set the noise generator to. Stewart played with it a bit here and noted: "The drum sounds are simply bursts of noise with the volume and frequency changing over time. The k...

Re: Loading files into Xroar....

Well, no reason to get rid of the search for .dgn when finding ROMs (or the header skipping).

But also I guess no reason to stop .dgn and .cco being handled the same as .bin.

Snapshots here...

Re: Loading files into Xroar....

Haha :)

But presumably even you keep headerless versions around for MAME - which I don't think ever respected your authoritah in that regard...

Re: Loading files into Xroar....

Yeah that worked when I renamed them to bin. Would it be possible to add the extensions .DGN and .CCO so this format is recognized in files with those extensions, as that is what DragonMMC uses by default. Possibly... .dgn is searched for when looking for system ROMs (in case someone only has the h...

Re: Loading files into Xroar....

Just use File->Load or File->Run. XRoar recognises initial $55 (in a file with ".bin" extension) as DragonDOS and parses the header. You should then find it in memory... (FWIW, if it sees an initial $00, it tries it as a CoCo RS-DOS binary instead) Oh, and BASIC files not supported yet... Should pro...

Re: Latest Tools - Win 64-Bit

FWIW, the last release of XRoar that actually changed anything about the Windows build was 0.35.2, so you're not missing anything :)

Re: XRoar online work in progress

Works great in the new Edge based on Chromium too. The Amiga Bouncing Ball demo is using 6% CPU on my i5 Surface Laptop 2. 6% is pretty impressive. More like 90-odd on mine (summing the use of two obviously heavy threads). Wonder what the difference is. Maybe Edge/Chromium is able to offload more v...

Re: XRoar online work in progress

Trying it on FireFox on my Linux Mint virtual machine, I get an error related to GLctx being undefined. I found this on github, that may be of help: https://github.com/emscripten-ports/SDL2/issues/11 Well, also weird, but could be something to do with OpenGL support within or by the VM there I gues...

Re: XRoar online work in progress

Which OS and Chrome extensions are you using? Maybe there's something missing in your setup. Linux and... well, nothing I added (I only downloaded chrome specifically so I could cast amazon until they sort that out - generally I test in chromium). There seems to be some docs-related stuff in there ...
