Blaze the Jupiter Ace Emulator
as a SAM Coupé disk image  [104 kb zip]

   Blaze is the result of an email from me to Edwin Blink, asking if it was possible to make a Jupiter Ace Emulator to run on my SAM Coupé. The SAM use a faster Z80B cpu, the Aces is a standard Z80 cpu. Edwin then came up with Blaze and it will run on a SAM Coupé 256 or 512, with SamDOS, MasterDOS, or BDOS. It will also run on the Sam Coupé Emulator, SIM Coupé.

   To run the Blaze on a SAM you will have to write the disk image to a 3.5 floppy disk. Best done by using Simon Owen`s Samdisk V2 util, which runs with Windows XP.

    When running Blaze on a SAM you the following options:
  • ESC - Exits the emulator. Drops you into SAM BASIC.
  • RUN - to resume.
  • TAB - Shows a Jupiter Ace keyboard layout on screen, see screen shot below.
  • F9 - Reset, same as 0 call from the Ace.
  • F8 - Re-load a snapshot.
  • F7 - Load a snapshot.
  • - Save a snapshot, not finished yet.

Blaze Start screen on SAM.

TAB key pressed on SAM brings up the Jupiter Ace keyboard layout up.

Blaze running, yes, that's the normal Aces boot screen!
