Software updates for Arduitape and Casduino

Andrew Beer has been working hard on updating the software for the original Arduitape and the MSX specific Casduino.

Software update for Arduitape.

Here is an update for the Arduitape software. It is now compatible with the latest Arduino IDE and supports Long File Names. The quality of play back has also improved.

Download here.



Software update for Casduino the MSX specific version of Arduitape.

This software update now includes the ability to change the playback baudrate between 1200/2400/3600. 1200 and 2400 baudrate works perfectly on a Nano based machine and an Uno based machine. 3600 is somewhat experimental and works on about 95% of games on both machines with a standard 2GB sd card, 100% on an Uno based with a class 4 SDHC card and 98% on Nano based machines with a class 4 SDHC card. Also with Long File Name support.

  1. Hello, I would like to postearas the schematic for the use of casduino and I'm having trouble putting into operation. LCD so me draws two characters, please if you can tell which are the pinout of everything and know that accessories tmabien utlilizas this latest version and especially to see the operation thereof. thanks for the work.

  2. The schematics for the Arduitape II and III are in earlier posts with the pin outs. I am in the process of documenting the latest version which is Casduino only.

  3. I hope you upload soon as I am very interested, let me know if it is possible with arduino nano v3 and lcd 1602. Regards

  4. The Casduino uses a Nano v3 and a 1602 I2C LCD display. There is very little difference to the Arduitape apart from not needing the filter board and to fit it in a smaller project box I have slightly updated the design.

Introducing the TZXDuino

A Giant Leap For Nerd Kind.
I'm not usually one for silliness but Andrew Beer has been working hard in the background trying to programme the Arduino to play ZX Spectrum .TZX files without the need to convert to a .WAV. Today he has managed to do that with some .TZX files but also with .TAP files as well. The code is still very much in the early stages so the compatibility with.TZX files is still relatively low but in theory all .TAP files should work. I only have 5,246 to test.
What's even better is that the code will work on both the Arduitape and the CASDuino hardware by just uploading the programme to the Nano.

Simply download this file, unzip and load in the Arduino IDE.

TZXDuino 1.7

This fixes issues with pause lengths that we never noticed before. It should fix games like Top Gun and Street Hawk for the Spectrum and make CDT files behave as they should for the Amstrad CPC.Changes.
*Maximum pause length of 8.3 seconds due to the TimerOne library has been worked around.
*ID20 Pause Block fixed.
*Temporary fix for pause after motor control removed.https://mega.nz/#!aEt1VJKZ!ZFw-fP3bkNTtiPlbG_IllmR94Xni3KvIGUn6Jggfof8
