Hi all,

Anyone considered porting Simcoupe: http://www.simcoupe.org/ to OS/2.

SimCoupe emulates the SAM Coupé - a British Z80-based home computer released in 1989 by Miles Gordon Technology.

DOS-version runs nicely on OS/2, but I would love to run it in a window and get the sound support working.

There are SDL - ports for QNX, BEOS, Solaris,..more, so porting to OS/2 shouldn't be too hard.

Thanks Paul,

Now the SimCoupe is running nicely in a window on a OS/2 desktop. Did you compile the binary with sound support enabled? I haven't managed to get any sounds from the emulator. My soundcard is using uniaudio drivers.

I've refreshed the zip file to include saasound support - the terrible documentation listed 3 libraries for sound support - and said 1 or more may be needed for sound - I assumed just sdl would be enough....
