Conversion Tools: Emulators


xtrs is a Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I/III/4/4P emulator for Unix and the X Window System. It includes lower case, the real time clock, the Model 4 hi-res graphics option, mouse support, sound and music support (requires OSS), cassette support, 5" and 8" floppy disk drives, and even hard disk drives. Unlike many Model I emulators, xtrs supports double sided, double density floppies, emulating both the Percom and Radio Shack Doubler. The emulated floppy and hard disk file formats are compatible with the popular MSDOS-based emulators by Jeff Vavasour, Matthew Reed, and David Keil, and (if you choose a capable enough file format), all features of the original TRS-80 floppy disk controller are emulated. Under Linux, physical floppy disk drives are also supported. Physical cassettes can even be read and written (when the phase of the moon is right). The user interface is a bit spartan, but it gets the job done.


snes9express is a graphical front-end program for snes9x (the Super Nintendo Emulator). It contains many of the common options for snes9x, with an interface that resembles the SNES console.

Virtual X68000

Virtual X68000 is an emulator of Sharp X68000 and its operating environment. It will eventually run application programs for X68000 without any proprietary software including ROM BIOS, but currently lacks many key functions and is still in early development phase. Virtual X68000 is written in C++, and uses templates to implement instruction handlers.

VICE is a Versatile Commodore Emulator, i.e. a program that runs on a Unix, MS-DOS/Win95/NT or RiscOS machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit Commodore computers. The current version emulates the C64, the C128 (80 column screen is included now), the VIC20, all the PET models (except the SuperPET 9000, which is out of line anyway) and the CBM-II (aka C610).

CoCo Linux Utilities

CoCo Linux Utilities is a collection of utilities to work with Color Computer emulator files in Linux. It includes "cocodisk" to extract files from emulator DSK images, and "bin2cas" to convert disk BIN files to cassette CAS format for loading into the xmess emulator.
