Sorry if this is too OT (mods can move if necessary), but I thought that if a project implements a network interface etc into a machine with a z80, it deserves a link here :)

You can now start throwing the tomatoes, if I was wrong ;)

The first module is a hardware driver called z80interface. It is written with the hardware I made in mind, and it knows how to take over the Z80s bus and read or write a byte to the main memory. It has no knowledge of the code or memory map of the Z80; in theory, you could use this module plus the hardware on any machine built around a Z80. With some modifications, it probably even works on other 8-bit CPUs too.
Completely interesting.

Considering that the CPC and PLUS do have Z80...


BTW, 1943 cabinet's main Z80 runs at 6mhz... which is a bit more than our humble 4mhz... :'(

Thx anyway to have post this here.

If you had the heart to do some stuff on the Amstrad PLUS or even CPC... ;)


Also : special d├ędicace pour Gryzor.

Interracial can be fun.

Worse it's a 6Mhz machine with Hardware Sprites with side trimmings and the lot to make it do what it was designed to do!  >:( 
But of course the beloved Amstrad seems to produce a reasonible version of the arcade without the hassle of throwing more coins away just to play the darn thing!  :D
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
