Complete Newbie - how to load files on an emulator
« on: 2012.February.15. 18:33:48 »
Hi Guys,

I can load disk IMG files OK (using ep128emu) using OPTION->DISK->CONFIGURE (a list of IMG files is displayed that are stored in the "disks" directory. I can select one of these, hit RETURN and the gamedisk loads OK.

The problem is that I cannot see how to load some of the files in the DOWNLOADS directory on this site.
For instance, the ZIP file that contains say, "SHOOTEMUPS" contains all sorts of files *.PRG, *.SCR and some files with no extensions e.g. R-TYPE.

They do not appear to be disk images and they do not appear as tape files when I extract them to the tape directory. There are also some ROM files and these do not work when placed in the ROM directory.

I'm sure it's easy but I'm a complete noob. Do I boot to basic and type something in?

All help gratefully received.

sok köszönet

Barnsey

If you have a real floppy drive in your PC then just copy the extracted file to the disk. Inthe emulator disk menu can mount the real disk with pressing the A: button (you got a image file name: \\.\A: ).
And at the IS-BASIC prompt type: load "game.com"
Most of programs starting with the .COM file. If the program have a file named a START, then more easy, just press F1 key, this automaticaly load the START file.

If you not have a floppy drive, then use a FILEIO mode of the ep128emu. In the configuration menu load any configuration with FILEIO. EP_128k_Tape_FileIO_TASMON.cfg is recommended (fast memory test is also included)
With the Set working directroy select the directory where you store the extracted game files.
Then you can use the load "game.com" commad, the emulator is load from your specified directory.
Pressing F1 key (START command) is also can be used, then a file selection window will be displayed, and you can select which (.COM) will be loaded.
