The Emularity: An Example Computer Loader
For use with The Emularity, downloadable at
SIMPLE STEPS for trying an emulated computer ("PC-DOS 1.0" for the
IBM PC Model 5150).
* Check out this repository in your browser-accessible directory;
this file as well as es6-promise.js, browserfs.min.js and loader.js
are required. The logo and images directories are optional, but the
splash screen looks quite a lot better when they're available.
* Download the PCE.js IBM PC emulator from
It's a slightly modified version from the NPM one:
* Download the original IBM PC BIOS package
* Download the configuration file, it's a minimized version for easiler
to make your configuration based on that
* Download PC-DOS 1.0 disk image
* Visit your example_computer.html file with a modern
Javascript-capable browser.
