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! :)

I've just tested two freely available Intellivision roms, both work fine with the GCW0 version of JzIntv:
Teaser edition of Space Patrol, a great Intellivison game by the author of JzIntV, Joe Zbiciak.
The Christmas Carol vs. The Ghost Of Christmas Presents by James Pujals.

Hi everyone.  Sorry to bother all of you on this but I am having trouble getting this to work.  I've installed and run the app but I do not get a jzintv folder.  I do get a .intv folder.  I've installed the proper .bin but nothing works.  I've attached a screenshot of the home folder.  Thanks for any help you can give.

On another note, does anybody have the source to JzIntellivision? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I cannot see either .intv or .jzintellivision folders in your screenshot.

Is your firmware current? To find out click on "About" in the settings menu. The first line should read:
Quote
Build date: Aug 20 2014
If it doesn't update to the latest firmware.

Then install the latest jzintellivision opk.

Now when you first run it, all the folders will be created.

Place the following files in the /usr/local/home/.jzintellivision/bios folder:
Quote
exec.bin
game.rom
grom.bin
(and optionally)
ecs.bin
ivoice.bin

It should now run fine. Let me know how you get on.

Thanks everyone for your help.  It's appreciated.  I have it going now.  I wasn't running the latest software even though I thought I was.  D'oh  :o.  It's all good now.   8)
