PockEmul 1.12.0 New release

Dear PockEmul’s fans, I am pleased to announce the new PockEmul release. It will be available in the next few days.

It includes the Sharp PC-1280 package which includes the PC-1280 (export and Japanese version) and the CE-120P printer.

The Sharp PC-1280

The Sharp PC-1280 is the last model of the small sized family initiated by the PC-1251.
It brings a powerful BASIC, a 20 digits precision calculator, a 2 lines LCD display and a lot of memory.

Its form factor doesn’t fit well on small mobile phone displays, so an alternate condensed skin is available in the ‘Display’ Contextual menu.

Of Course the Japanese version is provided because it has some specific features

The emulation is not yet perfect and some features are missing:

  • This Pocket has a very complex memory map. Even if this is not documented, It can manage 64KB Ram Cards. I still have some trouble managing it. So the Pocket is locked in a 64KB configuration state.
    After a RESET, enter the followings commands:
    • SET MEM “1” Return
    • and SET MEM “B” Return
  • The only available documentation is in German and is freely available here. One of my friends own an English one, I will try to scan it ASAP.

The CE-120P printer

This is a classic thermal printer (similar to the CE-126P) with a form factor dedicated to the Sharp PC-1280.

In fact it has a very specific feature, not yet available in PockEmul, an extension 11 pins connector on its left side dedicated to the Floppy Reader CE-140F. I’m not sure to release the CE-140F one day because the interest of a floppy reader is limited versus the Session Save/Load feature of the Advance Pack.

Perfect emulation is an infinite quest. Please report us any inaccurate behaviour at contact@pockemul.com

  1. Excellent work, it would be nice if the printer output could be save as a text file.

    Any chance on the Sharp PC-150o,1600 or 1360 to save or load the program in its native file format to the phone rather than the whole state as a whole.

    Keep up the good work

    Your the best

    Kind Regards

    1. The printer text can be copied to the clipboard by the “context menu / Paper / Copy text” entry.
      Loading / saving wav files is in my to do list.
