March 6, 2019 – Updated TRS-80 Emulator

George and Peter Phillips have updated TRS80GP to v2.1.0

Changes include:

•  Better handling of floppy (formatting is the biggest)
•  .cmd files now loaded under TRSDOS/LSDOS rather than ROM BASIC.
•  Sound mute menu entry and auto-muting paused or using menus.
•  Full screen and new sharp rendering mode. (perfectly square pixels with scaling)
•  Reassigned and new hot keys
•  Disk files recognized by .dmk, .imd, .dsk suffix so can be listed without -dN on command line. Or with just -d if suffix unknown.

•  Clock automatically set for Model 1, 3, 4 built-in TRS-DOS, LDOS and LSDOS.
•  Added -is, -ics, -id, -itime, -im trackdump and -showframe for automatic input “scripting”.
•  Add “Replace” to diskette menu for quicker eject + insert workflow.
•  Now have -m3n for Norcom emulation (99% just a different character ROM).
•  Bug fixes in screenshot when paused.
•  Beam debug now defaults to blue for conflict colour and shows the data that would have been displayed if the conflict did not occur.
