The East-German 8-Bitters
This page contains information about the East-German 8-bit computers I grew up with, including live emulator demos running directly in the browser. Later I’ll try to upload scans and photos of all the stuff I still have stashed under the roof (computers, manuals, program listings and a lot of “programmer art” from 1984 to 1990).
My changes to the JSMESS source code are on github. For general improvements to JSMESS I’ll try to package them into pull requests for the main branch. Some changes are dirty hacks though which better remain in my own fork: http://www.github.com/floooh/jsmess
Compared to the other East-German 8-bit computers at the time, the KC85/3 was a wonder-machine. It could render colorful pixel graphics at 320x256 resolution and had a 1.75MHz Z80 CPU:
The KC85/4 was the successor to the KC85/3, and mainly had more RAM and better graphics specs:
Three of the games I coded for the KC85/3 run in JSMESS so far. I’ll update the list as I get more them running (might take a while):
