Emulator III additional downloads

You can download the latest EIII and EIIIX operating systems here:

-          Emulator III OS version 2.42: EIIIOS242.zip

-          Emulator IIIX OS version 2.10: EIIIXOS210.zip

 

Once unzipped, these are 800K DS-DD floppy disk images which can be copied to a floppy disk using OmniFlop (see links section). In OmniFlop you will have to select the Emax 10*512 diskformat, which is 100% compatible with the EIII/EIIIX.

 

If you don't have a Windows XP/Vista PC, you can also use CopyQM for DOS with following files:

-          Emulator III OS version 2.42: EIIIOS242_CopyQM.zip

-          Emulator IIIX OS version 2.10: EIIIXOS210_CopyQM.zip

CopyQM can also be used with Windows 3.x and Windows 9x.

 

 

* * * NEW JULY 2017 * * *

 

You can download some bootable hard disk images for the EIII and EIIIX here:

-          Emulator III OS version 2.42: EIIIOS2_42_HardDiskImages.zip

-          Emulator IIIX OS version 2.10: EIIIXOS2_10_HardDiskImages.zip

 

These images can be used to create a hard disk (or memory card)  from which the EIII and EIIIX can boot. This may be helpful if your hard disk has crashed and you don't have the operating system available on floppy disk.

 

The README file in the ZIP file explains the procedure how to create a bootable hard disk from the images.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emulator II additional downloads

Some Emulator II Operating System files for use with EMXP can be downloaded here:

 

Emulator II OS 3.1

Emulator II OS 3.0

Emulator II OS 2.3

Emulator II OS 2.1

Emulator II OS 3.1HD

Emulator II OS 2.6HD

 

To download Emulator II bootable disk images (OS Overlay files) for use with the HxC, please click here:

An Emulator II Memory Test disk image can be downloaded here:

 

Emulator II ZM325 Memory Test Disk File

 

The Memory Test file must be converted directly into a HxC file - it's a bootable disk image which will instantly start the memory test procedure at boot time in the Emulator II.

More information can be found on the SoftPres website. The SoftPres team has successfully reverse engineered the EII floppy disk layout based on capturing the flux transitions of an actual EII disk and disassembling the Z80 code of the EII Debug ROM.

Emax

additional downloads

You can download some "tweaked" Emax Operating System files here. These OS files are almost the same as the original ones, but they have been slightly changed to make them compatible with the "Bank Load/Unload" feature of Sound Designer for Emax 1.12. However you don't need any of these if you are using the Emax Operating System called EmaxPlus10/16/89.

 

-          Emax SE 1.1 upgraded to rev 4.0: EmaxSE11_sd40.zip

-          Emax SE HD 1.1 upgraded to rev 4.0: EmaxSEHD11_sd40.zip

-          Emax Plus 1.0 upgraded rev 4.0: EmaxPlus10_sd40.zip

 

(all of these operating systems will show "rev 4.0" on the Emax MASTER SPECIAL menu, instead of "rev 1.1" or "rev 1.0")

 

Disclaimer:

Using these operating systems is at own risk (although the tweak is considered to be quite innocent).

Emu did not approve any of the applied changes/tweaks.

Emu nor myself have any responsibility nor accountability for any possible damage caused by or presumably caused by using these tweaked versions of the Emax OS.

If you don't agree with this statement, don't use the files.

 

Why do you need this special version of the Emax OS ?

 

If you are using Emax Plus 10/16/89 you don't need any of the above tweaked OS versions.

If you are using EMXP and the EmuSer for RS422 bank transfers, you don't need the above tweaked OS versions neither.

 

However if you don't have Emax Plus 10/16/89 or don't want to use it, you will need one of the above tweaked versions if you want to use the bank transfer option in Sound Designer for Emax.

This software package for Max supports full bank transfer between Sound Designer and the Emax-I (not Emax-II !), but this feature requires specific revision levels of the Emax Operating System. Except for the OS called "EmaxPlus10/16/89" Emu seems never to have released their other Emax Operating Systems with a sufficiently high revision number (4.0).

But the 1.1 version of the SE OS and the 1.0 version of the Plus OS actually do support the bank transfer protocol as well. By tweaking the revision number within these operating system files, it is possible to activate the bank transfer option between Sound Designer for Emax and the Emax.
