TRS-80 Coco 1/2 and Model 1

Anybody had time to check this out...

Basically it appears he has implementations of the TRS-80 Model I and the Color Computer 1/2. TRS-80 has a pretty good hobbyist following and tons of software.

Any use?

I get an "unsafe page" warning if I try to view the page hosting the source.

But a TRS-80 core would definitely be interesting. I remember visiting a friend's house around 1980 to play Space Invaders on some TRS variant. That's the sum total of my exposure to the platform.

It was pretty amazing what companies like Big 5 and Adventure International were able to do with the Model I/III especially considering the lack of hi-res graphics, programmable character sets, color, and limited sound. Here is a game play example video of Eliminator...

I have a real TRS-80 Model IV and play this game whenever I get a chance.
