IBMulator 0.3

This new version brings these notable improvements:
  • Hard Disk Drive emulation (bare bones)
  • Better PC Speaker emulation
  • Windows x64 version
  • Various bug fixes

The Windows version has been tested only under Windows 8.1. It might run under Windows 7 but I don’t have the resources to test it on anything else than Win 8.1 x64.

The HDD emulation works but it’s very basic (only read, write, seek, read_check commands and DMA data transfers), so any low level diagnostic or format programs will almost certainly not work.

You can download the precompiled binaries at https://github.com/barotto/IBMulator/releases/tag/v0.3

In the Download section you can find a pre-formatted, bootable HDD image with the italian version of all the IBM factory-installed programs.

Unfortunately an Heisenbug prevents some programs from working properly (CPU throws an invalid opcode exception).

This will be the last version for some time as I don’t have much free time anymore. I will continue to sporadically push code updates to the master branch on GitHub though.
