Have not gone through the checklist yet, but almost all features should be working. Due to it being SDL-based the overlay will be drawn after every frame update, causing some flickering.

Hashing is full file, memory mapping is simply all the contiguous memory available, variable per model. I can pad with zeroes if that's safer.


  • Fix audio output with SDL2
  • Switch to the repository-local RAIntegration (once the emulator entry is merged)
  • Support hot-swapping to unrecognized tapes for loading
  • Go over the checklist
  • Check cross-machine memory map compatibility
  • Test
  • Update Game Identification wiki page

Tapes are read and written from the same drive here. I think the sanest way to support swapping to save tapes would be to block tape hot-swapping only when RA_IdentifyRom() returns a non-zero ID. Does that seem fine?

We can also detect tapes being loaded from BASIC, so the alternative would be disabling hot-swapping on tape insertion and enabling it on load, which would allow the user to switch to a save tape exactly once for an initial load, assuming users can switch to softcore while saving.

The last commit I pushed allows hot-swapping while in BASIC (since nothing has been loaded yet) and swapping to unlinked files at any time. This only applies to tapes.
