C64 core is now capable of using the TCP (modem) option.
The maximum baud rate is currently 2400, however, UP9600 in the future has not been ruled out - Thanks ElectronAsh
I have included two test builds of the core.
C64_UART_DB - reassigns the HDD and USR LEDs to serial UART RX and TX respective to the C64 core.
C64_UART - HDD and USR LEDs operate normally.
Both cores currently disable gamepad 'D' due to conflicts.
I have also updated MidiLink (Ver 2.2) :
- Better compiler optimizations (for what its worth - MidiLink itself uses very little CPU)
- (Possibly) more efficient use of the ALSA MIDI byte stream parser (for FSYNTH/MUNT - snd_midi_event_encode() vs snd_midi_event_encode_byte())
- Found & fixed potential bug with possible uninitialized variable which could potentially cause TCP/UDP & USB MIDI to exit out with a bogus error. I never seen this error occur in the wild, but...
- TCP - ATHELP command (shows complete list of available AT commands)
- TCP - dialing directory (/media/fat/linux/MidiLink.DIR)
- TCP - ATDIR command (shows MidiLink.DIR)
- TCP - ATMIDSF command (change default FSYNTH_SOUNDFONT in MidiLink.INI)
- UDP - clear any stuck notes when starting (with UDPMIDI.EXE on Windows)
New MidiLink.INI options:
- MP3_VOLUME = 0 - 100% (volume level specific to MP3s)
- MT32_LCD_MSG = Custom message for MT-32 LCD, up to 20 chars (this is for real MT-32 or MUNT via UDP/UDPMIDI.EXE)
- TCP_FLOW = 0, 3, 4 (NONE, CTS/RTS, XON/XOFF)
- UDP_FLOW = 0, 3, 4 (NONE, CTS/RTS, XON/XOFF)
MidiLink.DIR example (/media/fat/linux/MidiLink.DIR):
#KEY / VALUE
c80 = commodore80
13th = 13th.hoyvision.com:6400
sky = skynetbbs.dynu.net:6400
rf = rapidfire.hopto.org:64128
867-5309 = jenny
As you know, I know have the 'MIDI' and 'MIDI-38K' options in the menu. I'm thinking of getting rid of 'MIDI-38K ' in favor of implementing different INI [sections] which apply per core.
For example, for regular MIDI, the ao486 requires 38400 baud (for SoftMPU) and Minimig and FXCAST require 31250 baud. C64 could theoretically even use MIDI. I prefer TCP at 115200 for Amiga and ao486, 119200 for FXCAST and now 2400 baud for the C64 core
Thanks for testing!
