Mr SQL Posted July 15, 2022 Share Posted July 15, 2022 I'm working on a TRS-80 Color Computer Emulator "Middle of Nowhere" for the Commodore 64! ? This hybrid Tech emu will be similar to my Atari 2600 emulator for the C64, Game Loader. Game_Loader_Commodore_64_Atari_2600_Emulator_WhitePaper.pdf This project was inspired by Lonnie Falk and Prospect Kentucky (middle of nowhere) and by Jack Tramiel. Details: Like Game Loader, Middle of Nowhere is going to be part emulation and part Transmeta magic. Middle of Nowhere will take a Color Computer program and output a native C64 program. Just Like Game Loader, the emu will use about 80% of the C64's screen to put the Color Computer program on. Full Adventure game support: All of the Rainbow Adventure Books Interactive Fiction titles should be playable in the emulator. All of the T&D text Adventures should also be playable. BASIC semigraphics games will convert to PETSCII dynamically like Game Loader! SOUND and PLAY statements from Microsoft Extended BASIC will be emulated on the phenomenal SID chip with enhancements to sound. Lines greater than 80 characters will convert to Microsoft BASIC 2.0 structured logic blocks. Unlike Game Loader, Assembly Language programs will not be supported (the Color Computer is 16-bit). Release planned for December 2022 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
