v6 compilers

68xxx v6.2 with a modern version of AIDE - you'll have to update the AIDE configuration yourself. Works on most current versions of Windows. Download

v5 DOS compilers

Z80/Z180 v5.1. We have no Z80 hardware left. This is a piece of archaeology from the files on a development box. But the manuals have been converted to PDFs. To get going, run xs3.com, configure it for the Z80 cross compiler and then you can start. DOSbox is your friend.
Download x180.zip

8096/80C196 v5.1. Once a firm favourite, but now a memory with PDF manuals. Run with DOSbox. The file to run is xs3.com.
