JACE – Java Apple Computer Emulator almost ready for new Beta

jace-system7 Brendan Robert has been busy, working hard on a new version of his Java Apple Computer Emulator. During the weekend he posted some teaser screenshots on the Facebook Apple II Enthusiasts group. There, he says that the new JavaFX version is almost beta-ready.

The emulator didn’t receive any update for a while, and the changes/improvements are more than welcome – One of the major fix/improvements is the fact that now the emulator will work on the new MacBooks. You can get more details visiting the Facebook Group or the project repository on GitHub.

Jace is a java-based Apple //e emulator with many compelling features:

  • Disk and Mass-storage (hard drive, 3.5 floppy) images
  • Joystick and Mouse are fully supported (Joystick can be emulated with either keyboard or mouse, Java doesn’t have native joystick support
  • All graphics modes are supported, including Apple RGB “Mixed” and B&W modes.
  • Fullscreen and windowed modes supported
  • PassPort MIDI support for Ultima V
  • MetaCheat allows quick and easy ability to find and alter active memory
  • MetaCheat also provides a live heat-map showing all RAM activity, color coded to indicate read, write or CPU execution — Perfect for reverse engineers
  • Optional Debugging rom (][DB) can be enabled for a more powerful monitor
  • Super serial emulated as a tcp/ip port
  • Mockingboard support, partial Phasor support
  • Highly flexible configuration allows any combination of cards and many extra options. You can even alter configuration while the emulation is running!
