Hi, an old thread...


but... has anyone done a dump and full disassembly of the OS yet?  What is the memory map like on the PCW16?  Could the OS be modified to run on CPC?
As somebody that's coded on the pcw16 back in the day I would say no there's no way to modify for the CPC. It was slow even with a z80 four times faster than a CPC's, and the screen size of 640x480 makes it near impossible. The CPC's memory banking is also not flexible enough.
TBH Symbos is x10 better anyway.

It could be simulated, even a bit faster. But this would take time and effort - maybe it's not worth doing that. Maybe somebody has time for such a project, even if I doubt it.
