I was under impression that emulating A500 (which Chameleon > supposedly does already) is more of a challenging task in all aspects than > scpu. Although I admit I've never had scpu so I might be missing > something. a) we dont have a 65816 core. writing one from scratch which is halfway accurate is a LOT of work b) making it work on the chameleon hardware with a fixed 20mhz clock will not be easy, since the sdram is also used by the drive emulation and the vga framebuffer (which eats bandwidth) c) the scpu contains copyrighted software (firmware roms) which can not be copied without a license d) last not least: the fpga is getting full, and an additional 65816 core would most likely not fit. so, i guess that in theory an scpu core could be implemented, but it is not part of the "turbo chameleon 64" project. -- http://www.hitmen-console.org http://magicdisk.untergrund.net http://www.pokefinder.org http://ftp.pokefinder.org Vorsicht: Lesen gefährdet die Dummheit!
