Re: Feature request "GUI for Windows"

A first quick hack at a launcher. It is certainly missing features and may contain bugs. I have done (limited) testing on Linux with Python 2.7. It should also work on Windows. I think (hope?) that it will also work with Python 3.x. Linuxen should already have Python installed, but may need to insta...

Re: Hardware and Firmware Errors and Bugs

The BASIC ROM includes an undocumented function FREE(). I guess that it was intended to return the amount of free memory, but in practice it just duplicates one of the other functions (EXP if memory serves me). Lack of space in the ROM for the extra code?

Re: Feature request "GUI for Windows"

There are actually two different types of launcher possible: I) A launcher with a dialog that has many spinners, menus and checkboxes and attempts to provide access to as many of the MEMU command line options as possible. Such a launcher would be general purpose, but would still require the user to ...

Re: Feature request "GUI for Windows"

I have discussed this a bit with Andy. There are at least two issues: 1. Designing the dialog. The command line switches are extremely flexible and powerful. It is actually quite difficult to come up with a dialog structure that is capable of doing everything that can be done from the command line, ...

Re: The forum is NOT read-only!

Memu-pi provides a GUI for the main options, although by no means everything that menu can do. On Linux, even if you don't have a pi, you can download the code and compile memu- Cfg, which with just the option -config menu.cfg gives you the same GUI. Unfortunately, I have never sorted out windows co...

Re: The forum is NOT read-only!

Hi Mark, yes I was aware that there is an introduce yourself section (having been lurking on the forum for some time), however since it was Dave's post that shamed me into poking my head above the parapit I thought he should have the credit. I don't think I have any more of a story to tell than I ha...

Re: The forum is NOT read-only!

Okay, okay, okay ... guilty as charged. I don't really do social media, but since Dave has blown my cover in the Memotech world anyway, here I am. I purchased my Memotech new. I don't remember now what I did with it in the early days, probably played with the Assembler and Panel. I never was much in...
