It’s really cool! Â And as an added bonus, it can now run in ‘Variable’ speed, meaning as fast as your machine can emulate the 68040.
OS X version here, and Windows version here. Â For me, at least a bunch of DLL’s are missing, so I put together a quick package containing the Windows version with all of the missing DLLs here.
From the announcement:
I am happy to annouce the release of Previous v1.4! Simon did lots of work on emulating the NeXTdimension and he considerably improved timings and efficiency of Previous. Furthermore there is now a mode to accelerate the emulation beyond the performance of real systems. Other improvements and bugfixes are listed in the readme.
Emulating the NeXTdimension board was something i thought would not be feasible. But thanks to the i860 emulator from Jason Eckhardt and the work of Simon, who improved and completed parts of it, it finally came true. I hope you enjoy it!
Download link with the DLLs is broken.
you need to *read* the 404 page. it’s all in there.
The latest version of Previous on the official website is 0.5, and here we have 1.4. What’s up with that?
most of the talk is on nextcomputers.org, and the source is up on sourceforge.
I download it and it work if I don’t turn on Ethernet.
But it hang if I turn on Ethernet.
It hang at
CPU MC68040 25MHz, memory 100 ns
Backplane slot #0
Ethernet address: 0:0:f:0:f3:2
Memory size 32MB
Testing the FPU, SCC, SCSI, Enet, RTC
Any way to fix this?
Thanks in advance
PS: My host is a 64bit Windows 10 with wired Ethernet connected.
If I remember the trick was to enable the ethernet after the BIOS has gotten you to the next> prompt.
But this is an older build, by now I imagine they have newer stuff…
But how to enable ethernet from Next> prompt?
What I did is from Pervious main menu.
