Vince Briels Replica-I was successfully presented at Bytefest in Prague, Czech Republic, Europe.
(Some photos are at http://www.c64.cz/index.php?ukaz=Bytefest%202005 , more links at www.bytefest.org . Unfortunatelly it was without so nice wooden case.)

Next thing - Apple I emulator (or Replica-I emulator) with built-in assembler/disassembler, running on Sinclair ZX Spectrum (3.5 MHz!) is almost complete (only cassette I/O emulation is missing now).
Nothing interesting for non-Sinclair users, maybe Shock)
It seems to be the most complete and accurate Apple I emulator ever (I've never seen better on PC or Mac).

The last thing - I've discovered, that two characters (with codes $02 and $03, also $82 and $83) 'll cause the "clear screen" and "cursor home" action (CTRL-prev.word and CTRL-7 on the Franklin Ace 2000 keyboard, I think). Is this Replica-I specific feature only, or it was possible also on the original Apple I ?
THX for replies.

Bytefest looks like it was fun

The control codes for cursor home and clear screen are specific for the revision c boards and anybody who requests the updated video firmware. These codes are not really published and they go with the END and HOME keys on PS/2 keyboards. The Apple 1 had a clear screen button ability for those keyboards with clear screen keys. I wanted to impliment this option so I choose control codes to perform the same function. HOME of the cursor is not authentic for the Apple 1 but is a nice feature to have for anybody who wants a little more than scrolling text. There's more unpublished video stuff for those who look hard.

Yes, it was

I supposed it is Replica specific, thanx for confirmation.
But these control codes are REALLY very useful, in both Basic and MC programming.
