Almost everything but midi. So it is basically running like a accelerated ST. Some games don't work because of some timing issues, but almost all of the GEM apps I encountered run perfect. Well, an old GEM app to identify the system locks up (called STat or something like that), but that was the only one.
Wow... I am sorry for being ignorant. So it is truly an Atari emulated !!
For the Blitter emulation, I saw you ran GEMBENCH in your video. There is one part that does the blitting, so it is kind of tested.
I wonder what it needs to make an development environment for this type of boards... I mean on the software part, not the hardware. i assume the hardware is readilty can be purchased like those reference designs that you mentioned. Do you needs some special hardware to go between the board and PC for the development? Is it just matter of flashing the new firmware ?
