Many Thanks for This emu, David Knight. The Intellivision was one of the few consoles not emulated well on the GP2X so it is very nice to have it on GCW-Zero.

Is it 60fps fullspeed emulator with flawless sound?

As far as I know, the emulator runs at full speed with a flawless sound emulation (Intellivoice included) ! ;)

I've run the program but I cannot find a bios folder.
In fact I don't see a $Home folder anywhere.
I tried making a .jzintellivision folder containing a bios folder in the home folder where m other ROM folders are but it didn't work.
I'm using GCW 0 Manager.
Can anyone walk me through to the right Home folder?

The $HOME folder (/usr/local/home/) is an OS fundamental directory (where are put the applications config files)... you don't need to create anything manually.

Make sure your device has got the latest firmware release: http://www.gcw-zero.com/updates

PS: you can try to use Filezilla as FTP client... set the "transfer type" to  "binary" (Transfer menu) and activate "force showing hidden files" (Server menu).

The corrrect directory structure is automatically created for you, you just need to find it ;)
The path you are looking for is /usr/local/home/.jzintellivision/bios. The app is hard coded to only look there for the bios.
The GCW0 manager file manager starts you from the /usr/local/home so just find the folder labelled ".jzintellivision".

Remember, if it's not working check the log output file, it will tell you what went wrong.
If you're not sure how to interpret it post it here.

Yes, there's a full (and perfect) support to the Intellivoice... the "ivoice.bin" (bios file needed for the emulation) isn't difficult to find online (pm ;) )

Happy holidays to you too! :)

Happy new year!

Here's my little new years gift. I have enabled ECS support for JzIntellivision. This allows use of the keyboard which is used in the following games:

Jetson's way with words,
Mindstrike,
Mr. Basic meets Bits 'n' bytes
Scooby Doo's Maze Chase
World Series Major League Baseball
Space Patrol (untested but should work) Teaser edition tested and working ;D

You will need to place the bios file which must be named "ecs.bin" in the $HOME/.jzintellivision/bios folder in order for the above games to work.

Other changes:
Fixed the "Triple Challenge" cartridge which didn't work in the previous release due to incorrect memory configuration. If you have already tried to run this cartridge you will need to delete the triple challenge config file from $HOME/.jzintellivision/configfiles so it can generate a new one.

Q*Bert overlay is now working (this was due to "*" being an invalid filename character), just update your overlays and opk.

Minor graphical changes and set the menus and virtual numberpad/keyboard to wrap around.

Opk icon changed due to possible copyright infringement. Thanks as ever to Gab1975 for his generous artwork donations.

Opk size has been shrunk. Latest source code is still of course included within the opk.

I have remapped the controls due to requests:
L-SP=keyboard,
R-SP=numeric keypad,
B=Enter,
START=Player toggle.

Manual and controls screen changed to reflect the remapped controls and above changes.

Don't forget to update your overlays to Gab1975's latest release:

And here's the latest and greatest:

As I said to David Knight, the ECS support is "the icing on the cake" ! ;)
Now the compatibility should be absolute! Nice job! :)
