The Mega 65 website at http://mega65.org
just got a lot flashier. There are major updates for those interested. For those unaware, the Mega 65 project is to finally bring to life the Commodore 64 successor, the C65 [which exists as an extremely expensive collectible prototype] via a FPGA recreation complete with gorgeous keyboard/case/3.5" floppy support. It is reportedly 50x faster than the 64. Now, I know the word Commodore is heresy to some on an Atari forum which is of no bother to me. What excites me is that it is a powerful FPGA device in a keyboard case and open source,
so we can have Mist/Mister cores ported to it and hopefully it is possible to port the C65 core over to the Mist. It would be another C64 core as well unless I am mistaken. I don't know who did the core, but here is the github link: https://github.com/mega65
Amazingly, they plan on a Mega 65 phone?? I'm not saying I'd get one, but would love to see the specs. I hope some others here are as excited about this project's progress as I am.
