There is still work to be done on the custom IC's. A while back someone discovered old schematics of some of the IC's, and I'm sure these findings eventually will find it's way into the FPGA code.
Also, I know that 8-bit clone guys ditched dram in favour of sram in their FPGA clones since these timing issues were made even harder when they also had to take dram refresh into consideration.
Got it. I guess there aren't that many VHDL experts out there either! Hopefully one day we can reach 100% compatibility - really the only way we can preserve the ST the long term once these old machines die on us! :,-(
