Hobby and nothing else now, I am glad to see ppl still pushing the
technology. I Congratulate John on even attempting such a demo lol. I used
to respect you once but lately, not so sure now all you seem to do is pick
on others doing something.
> John was it using a stock 6809 Cpu? What would it be like using a 6309
chip and using the full 160x200x256 odd color artifacts I reckon it would be
10 times better and kick anything on any other 8bit machine to the Kerb.
with the added speed and the code tweaked up I can see the picture quality
and sound being very impressive for a 8bit system.
> That's why I still say Tandy were Ass-#### and should have started
selling the coco 3 with 6309 chips installed factory standard after the 6309
chip was created, we may have seen more games that pushed the limits even
further lol. Plus more advanced Apps. And if it was done earlier would have
seen more routines and John's Video player would be something You and others
would have said was darn pretty cool lol.
