Hello all, BZ> You ask "Why would anyone want VDC modes? They suck!" BZ> True enough about the VDC mode sucking, perhaps. However, a very large BZ> number of serious Commodore hobbiests have long abandoned their breadbox BZ> C64's for C128s of various stripes. The request for VDC video modes is for BZ> one principle reason: a dire hope for a C128 version of this card. Compatibility is a good thing. But if you have C64 boosted with VDC and MMU with +64K RAM, you have 90% of 1MHz version of C128 (except firmware and Z80). Although if Jeri would fit 6502 and extra RAM/ROM onto the board (together with VDC and MMU emulation), that seems equivalent to C128 emulation on C64. That would be better than any SuperCPU. I think Z80 and CP/M can be ignored w/o problems for most C= users. Frank - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
