>Your code is built under Linux with LWTOOLS and then pulled to the
CoCo 3 over DriveWire, and the DriveWire server is running on the Linux
system you're building on??
Correct. The Linux system is a Raspberry Pi 3 running Ron Klein's
CocoPI distribution. My CocoSDC is set up with an autoexec.bas file
that puts up a menu that includes "1. Test game," which mounts the game
disk image on the Pi onto the Coco3 and runs it. The game is programmed
to quit and hard reboot the Coco3 when the BREAK key is hit, and then
the CocoSDC autoruns the menu and I can hit "1" to start up the game again.
So I build the game on the Pi, hit BREAK and 1 on the Coco3 keyboard,
and I'm running the new version of the game. No muss, no fuss. I don't
even bother running MAME very often any more.
