To install the package, run the SWTPCemuSetup.exe program.
It will lead you through the installation procedure. When it is finished, the executables and
supporting DLL's will be copied to the appropriate directories on your hard drive. There will also
be ROM images for SBUG 1.7 (for the 6809), NEWBUG (a 6800 monitor ROM that is SWTBUG compatible),
OS9 Level 1 and UniFLEX. There will also be diskette images for FLEX 2.0 for the 6800, FLEX9 2.9.2,
OS9 LVL 1 and UniFLEX for the 6809. In addition to the executables and ROM images, the setup program
will also install several diskette images and configuration files for several popular SWTPC machine
To create your own shortcuts to different memulator.exe configured virtual machines follow these instructions:
If no config file is specified, the configuration file specified in the file
will be used.
- 1. Right Click on the memulator executable after you have unzipped the distribution zip file.
- 2. Select "Send To" from the context menu that pops up.
- 3. Right click the shortcut you just created on your desktop and select "Properties" from the context menu.
- 4. In the "Target" text box add one of the following to the command line (don't forget to put a space before the parameters):
|-configfile="FLEX2_config.xml" ||6800||FLEX 2 ||SWTPC ||TV950||FD2 and MPT.|
|-configfile="flex9_fd2_config.xml" ||6809||FLEX 9 ||SWTPC ||TV950||FD2 and MPT.|
|-configfile="OS9_config.xml" ||6809||OS2LVL1||SWTPC ||TV950||FD2 and MPT.|
|-configfile="UniFLEX_config.xml" ||6809||UniFLEX||SWTPC ||TV950||DMAF3 and MPID.|
|-configfile="flex9_pt69s5_config.xml"||6809||FLEX 9 ||PT69-5||TV950||PIA IDE.|
|-configfile="flex9_ttl_config.xml" ||6809||FLEX 9 ||PT69-5||TV950||TTL IDE.|
- 5. Set the working directory to the directory where the executable resides if it's not already there.
Also remember that SWTPCemu.exe (C++ version) uses .cfg files and saves the current configuration in the Windows Registry.
The C# versions (memulator and SWTPCemuApp) use .xml files and do not use the registry at all.
Click OK and you should be able to run the desired emulation from the shortcut.
