Pere, I've tested The Hobbit on the CocoFPGA and it seems to be working correctly. When I tested it before, I got strange colors, but I think you have that fixed now. It looks really good, but I didn't have time to play much, just enough to get killed by the trolls :-)

Hi,- Dragon users:we wanted to be able to run the Hobbit even from Drivewire.That forces some changes. HDB-DOS has to be used and thediscs will be 160k.The standard version (not DW) has no changes, so you couldstill use the v16f8 without problems- CoCo usersSince I uploaded last version (v16f8) I have been figthingagainst drivewire. CoCoFPGA Users said it doesn't work andthat's true!By using old/dirty debug-trace techiques I could finally reducethe problem to a small section and found that $76-77, that Iuse to save the pseudo register-IY, is used too by Drivewire.Once I have moved regIY to another place ... everything worksflawlessly!You can find all of the info about the project and download the VDK on these threadshttp://rw30.retrowiki.es/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=357&p=5571#p5571http://rw30.retrowiki.es/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=68&p=5572#p5572Note: The web is in spanish language.You could find info for users and download the two DSK in these threads at worldOfDragon webhttp://archive.worldofdragon.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5526&p=15158#p15158http://archive.worldofdragon.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5521&p=15159#p15159cheerspere serratPs. I hope some CoCoFPGA project users could give feedback about that version ...-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
