I didn't see the point of starting a new thread to see if this might be possible.
I was wondering, if there are other cores @sorgelig would be willing to port ? I realise some of these may not be possible, or interesting, but I thought if you don't ask, you may never know.
CoCo3 (or TRS-80 III) in VHDL. Who doesn't want to see the trash80 available ?!: https://github.com/richard42/CoCo3FPGA
Gameboy. Seems to be a combination of C++ and VHDL: https://code.google.com/archive/p/gbfpg ... ult/source
Temlib. Which allows simulation of a Sun Sparc Workstation, amongst other things: http://temlib.org/site/
Vic20. Hey, we have other Commodore cores, why not the Vic 20 as well ?http://svn.fpgaarcade.com/viewvc/Replay ... 20/source/
I'm not expecting anything, just hoping if source is available that porting may well be possible. Thanks for reading.
I've saw all these cores.
I don't remember why i didn't port VIC20. Actually it's not so attractive to me comparing to C64 which is actually covers all VIC20 features. I don't know any VIC20 specific game which will force me to port the VIC20.
But in general, i agree, it's better to port it. May be later.
CoCo3 core is hypertrophic fantasy computer. It's no more CoCo3. It runs on very high speed and requires a lot of high-speed memory (SSRAM - used on high-end Stratix boards if i remember correct). I'm VERY VERY against any fantasy computers as they bring no any meaning in present days. While running on 25MHz is looks pretty fast CoCo3, it's nothing comparing to Intel Core i9. So there is no reason to make such strange cores.
Give me the source of core implementing CoCo3 with its real specifications - and i promise to port it.
Of course it's only my opinion. Anyone else can try to port any fantasy computer to MiSTer. More cores - is better.
Gameboy sources i've saw claimed to be a very early prototype which almost doesn't work. May be readme is old..
Temlib - if i remember right, it's very limited and close to proof-of-concept than something really useful. They didn't implement graphics accelerator and other HW which is crucial for normal work. Core is pretty large, and i don't want to spend a lot of time for something which is close to POC. But again, anyone else is welcome to port it.
