Wow... This port is a masterpiece! In fact, the best port out there. And I'm taking the SNES port out of consideration because it's more like an expansion than a port... at least in my opinion.

Thanks guys! :)

I haven't really posted much here, but I kinda announced this while ago in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=67&t=1610
Now it's done, and I'm writing the blog to document all of it, and at the end I'm gonna release the fully labelled disassembly.

Then someone could theoretically make a C/C++ version out of it and run it on the PC.

mrsid, hats off to you for what seems to be a mind-blowing conversion indeed! And all via reverse engineering as well, with no access to the original source code. :shock: Simply amazing and awe-inspiring! I am having a blast reading your excellent blog as well. It's like an edge-of-the-seat thriller, with all of us waiting with bated breath to know what happened next (although of course we have the end result before us already). ;) :P

Hope you'll be releasing updates as you manage to figure out the last of the vexing issues.

May I ask if you know what would be the best emulator to experience your masterpiece on a Windows PC?

P.S. A shame really that Jordan never made good on his word to release the Apple II source code. :( Makes me wonder whether someone asked him not to, or whether he himself changed his mind for some reason? ('Cos surely no one can be that busy for more than 2 years as to not even have the time to send a couple of disks over.)

I know I'm a bit late to write this, but mrsid, what you've done is very impressive.
Congratulations on a job well done.

Hello!!
Can I play this port on vicepsp 2.2.1 ?? when I try to load it the emulator says "error loading file". This version of the emulator is compatible with easyflash... What can I do?

Possibly. If it's actually based on VICE 2.2 or newer and has an "Attach cartridge" option...
