6 adders, 6 logic ops. No idea how tight the fpga is at the moment, though..

...or get it and then flip it on ebay for $1000. Selling at cost when you know they will be sought after doesn't make a lot of sense.
Not everyone wants to go through the hassle, especially if it requires international shipping.

Re: Update 39

I'm starting to get a sneaking suspicion that it's not shipping this summer.. =) Glad to see it's coming together.

You can also use ZX7.
I didn't know ZX7 is compatible with the MegaLZ decompressor that apparently comes built in ZX Basic.

I used a simple batch file to call the assembler, sdcc, linker, my .tap file builder and finally to launch the result in an emulator. When something didn't compile, the batch file m...
