    Yeah, I am using 64-bit. But to be honest, I have no Idea how to rebuild this...

    You can uninstall your 64 bit Cygwin and download and install 32 bit Cygwin instead, or, I’ll build a 64 bit version Monday and update the zip file and the ReadMe instructions.

    The zip file now contains both a 32 bit and 64 bit executable. I have updated the ReadMe file as well.

    Thank you a lot for your work, now it works flawlessly.
    One thing I still need help with: how do I change the Disk?

    Disk images are provided in the “disks” folder. A full backup copy of all disk images is in the “disks/backup” folder.

    Different disks are loaded into the machine by editing the config.txt file in the “conf” folder. For convenience, the names of all disk images are in the config.txt file so you can easily cut and paste disk names into the drives. The new disks are active in the machine as soon as you save changes in the config.txt file. You do not have to restart the emulator.

    I am sory for the late respond, thanks for your help, the Emulator is very helpful.

    I’ll have an update soon that allows you to easily move files back and forth between your PC and a CP/M or MOS-80 disk in the emulator. This will allow you to edit source files, view listing files, etc., on the PC where things are easier for us these days.

    There is already a CP/M and MOS-80 program that will move a file from FLP-80DOS to a CP/M or MOS-80 disk, and there’s a similar FLP-80DOS program that will move a CP/M or MOS-80 file to a FLP-80DOS disk. With all these utilities together, you can move FLP-80DOS files between your PC and FLP-80DOS, albeit, with an extra step or two in the middle.

    Here is a link to version 1.1 of the emulator that includes the ability to transfer files between the CP/M and the host PC (also works under MOS-80). The CP/M programs R.COM and W.COM are used to read a file and write a file, respectively.

    Hello everyone,

    I am glad to bring some news regarding the Mostek-Computer.
    First of all, I want to present an addition to my website about a replica made by Rüdiger Kupke back in the days.
    Secondly, Peter Ormerod from Great Britian recently gifted me a great amount of Manuals for the System. To be honest I never thought I will ever see Manuals for this System, I am very glad he contacted me.
    Included are the following Manuals: SYS-80F Dual Floppy Microcomputer System; SDB-80E Software Development Board; Video Display Interface; FLP-80E Flexible Disk Drive Controller Board; FLP-80DOS Flexible Disk Operating System V2.1; Preliminary Basic Manual; Z80 Programming Manual; MK3880 Central Processing Unit; MK3881 Parallel I/O Controller; MK3882 Counter Timer Circuit; Mostek Microcomputer Systems Data Book
    Attachment 63263Attachment 63264
    I would like to scan them, but I don't want to stand in front of the scanner until my retirement and I also want to keep them/don't want them to be destroyed during the scanning process. And services that offer scanning documents without destruction are very expencive...

    Kind Regards,
    Magnus

    I have a similar system to Magnus.

    It is a Mostek Matrix system which uses the same cards but housed differently - one 19" rack style case housing the cards and a separate case with the dual 8" floppy disks.

    The Matrix system has two main differences:

    a) It doesn't have the VDI-P but uses an external VDU (or PC running a terminal emulator)

    b) It has an AIM80E - this is a software/hardware debugger which provides in-circuit Z80 emulation capability

    The hardware is particularly flexible - it can use up to five 2708 or 2716 EPROMS, up to four banks of 4K or 16K RAM and has serial IO and ports for parallel printer and paper tape punch (something curiously missing from Windows 10). It even has hardware support for page mode allowing RAM beyond 6k$.

    I have a complete set of manuals and the original software - though this doesn't provide much more than an editor, assembler, linker debugger.

    At some stage I acquired some MK3870 development software - this may relate to the VDI-P.

    In the mid-80's I ported CP/M onto the system which made it much more useful - especially as I was able to 'acquire' a large amount of CP/M software.

    If anyone is interested in any of this - let me know.

    Regards

    Ian
