These Z80 tools are a collection of free software I have collected
together with some scripts to allow them to be easily used.
tools are intended to allow a relative beginner to compile simple
programs that will compile to multiple 8 bit destination systems.
compilation is done with 'Winape's' , and it's easy to compile for
different platforms simply by commenting in or out the definitions
the platform you wish to compile to
Please use these tools at your own risk.
are provided freely in the hope they will be of use, and have been
tested to the best of my ability but I cannot test in all situations
guarantee they will not harm your computer in some unexpected way.
These tools have been tested on Windows 10 (32 & 64 bit),
Windows 7 64 bit, and Windows XP 32 bit
the exception of MsxHeader and PlusThreeHeader and the scripts and
examples I did not write the tools provided in this kit - to
knowledge, all the tools in here are Free and open source, and there
no reason they cannot be redistributed - Lif you know otherwise,
notify me and I will take appropriate action to resolve the issue.
Extract the files from the archive into a folder on your machine -
need to preserve the directory structure
To start run "Zdrive.bat" this will create a virtual Z drive on your
that Z drive use "CPC" to start winape - which should be used for
assembly, see Sources\HelloWorld.asm for the sample file
when you are done use "Zdrive-remove" to remove the Z drive
Please see my Youtube channel for more examples of how to use these
WabbitEmu will not work without a rom file - I cannot provide roms
licensing, so please supply your own
will not work without Sony HitBit rom files (or reconfigure the
to use other rom files you have) - I cannot provide roms to
MSX_GO does not use disk roms and will work fine.
OpenGl disabled in the batch file - this is because it caused
during testing on my Windows 10 virtual machine - it's likely to be
isolated issue, so please edit the ENT_xxx.bat files if you want
The included version of Wabbitemu and OpenMSX are
not the latest, this is to maintain WindowsXP compatibility... I did
this to make it easy for people who don't use windows to use these
tools in a virtual machine - you can update these programs to the
latest version if you wish.
I've been playing a bit with programming on the Enterprise 64/128,
I'm pretty impressed with the hardware, but because of the relative
obscurity of the system, and its failure in the UK, finding english
resources has proved difficult.
