Martijn> Any ideas? 100% code compatibility, and a 4x speedup at the same clock frequency sounds nice. I can't seem to find any package information, and the only picture of the eZ80 is a 100-ish pin SMD. If someone was to make a small adapter board it should plug right in. Btw, is there a way of going straight to CP/M mode on a C128? The 8502 in mine is toasted :/ -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + . .
