Genesis 41 Emulator by Laurent Spohr
I stumbled across an emulator that has obviously not been updated in quite a while:

http://www.laurent-spohr.com/Main/HP-41CX_Emulator.html

Does anyone know more about the fate of that project. The feature list looks quite impressive...


Thanks,


a.

RE: Genesis 41 Emulator by Laurent Spohr
I have been using it almost daily since 2013 on OS/X 10.8 than 10.9 and now 10.10.
The version I have is: v2.26 32bits OSX 1.9 Mavericks GM
The application is very well done and is very complete.
It can simulate the 41C/CV/CX, card-reader, wand, printer, IL printer & IL storage.
It has a assembler/disassembler and a ROM/RAM memory layout manager
The ROM MLM support all 16 pages with 4 banks on each page.

Complaints/features missing.
- I am not able to copy to the clipboard the virtual printer content.
- The overlay system could be improved.
- It would be very nice if it the application was supporting the PIL Box.
- Same thing for the Virtual-IL protocol.
- 32bits Carbon application (deprecated API, still run on OSX, but for how long, need a Cocoa rewrite)
- No update since December 2013

As of today, my gold standard in the Apple World for a HP-41 emulator is:
i41CX+ on IOS then followed by
Genesis-41 on OS/X.

Hi Sylvain,

The Version on the Homepage I linked to seems to be 2.24 and it bombs on my Computer (MacOs 10.10.5b). Where did you find 2.26?

Thank you

Andreas

Hello Andreas,
I was given to me by Laurent directly because I had similar issues.
My copy is a registered paid version.
I do not have a demo copy of v2.26 so you will need to ask Laurent to give you one.
Best regards,
Sylvain

For any people interested,

I finally contacted Laurent. He answered promptly. If I understand him right, he has essentially moved on from the project. It seems to be in hiatus. He let me understand that he might eventually open source the code at a very uncertain future time.

I was very happy to receive a working build (currently version 2.31 for OSX 10.11 which - so far - runs nicely for me on current macOS 10.12).

Any relevant information regarding features and operation can be gathered from the website cited at the beginning of this thread.

Greetings,

anetzer
