Re: VTech Laser XT Series improvements

The Laser XT/3 was changed to 8086 correctly. But the memory granularity was not added in any of the Laser XT machines, however the 512kb was established as the minimum, like the real hardware. I know will be a difficult task to add all the memory combinations of Convetional/EMS memory of the real h...

Re: Toshiba T1000

Hello. The Toshiba T1000 had 512kb of RAM as basic configuration and the 768kb expansion fills the remaining 128kb of conventional RAM and adds another 640kb. That 640 kb can be used as LIM EMS 3.2 or Hard-RAM. In the original BIOS the user can choose the amount of memory needed for one or the two a...

Re: VTech Laser XT Series improvements

I thought i was not possible to add 1MB EMS memory support because the complexity of the algorithm required. So now it's very close to the real machine. May be some day printer emulation might be added (using some kind of passtrought, like Vdos Plus) for a complete emulation. It's an awesome work. M...

Except the PC 7221 has a 80286 cpu running at 6,8 or 10 mhz, which may be easier to emulate. The biggest diff...
