Cores not listed in the FAQ you would like to see on Next

Time to talk about what other machines can run on the Next hardware!

I made this in 1995 .. Art Studio, rubber speccy, qaopm. EGA mode is totally good for me, played MI1 even at black/yellow monochrome 1bit gfx .. magic !!
Probably nothing to do with, but It reminds me of Alone in the Dark initial location :-)

Oh! I'm getting old, forgot that location completely :-D

Time to port ScummVM :lol:

Time to port ScummVM :lol:
wiki: "SCUMM has been released on these platforms: 3DO, Amiga, Apple II, Atari ST, CDTV, Commodore 64, Fujitsu FM Towns & Marty, Apple Macintosh, Nintendo Entertainment System, DOS, Microsoft Windows, Sega CD (Mega-CD), and TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine."

SpecNext .. yes please.

It would be nice to see the C65 as well. (I do mean C65 not C64)

- faster and enhanced CPU, better GPU, 256 colors, blitter, DMA, much bigger RAM .. literally the C64 Next.

How big is the FPGA compared to the MIST? Could the Amiga AGA core be easily ported?
The MIST IIRC has an ARM CPU behind the scenes for housekeeping/IO, so that's not an easy a question to answer. It has a 25K LE Cyclone 3 FPGA (compared to the 16K LE Spartan 6 in the SpecNext), so it can support larger cores, but it MAY be possible to fit an Amiga with AGA into the SpecNext with a bit of pruning.
But the AGA Amigas had a minimum of 2Mb RAM. Since a lot of the memory of the NEXT seems to be reserved for "stuff", will it be possible to get 2Mb RAM usable for this?

Or is the RAM reserved for "stuff" only NEXT related and not necessarily the same for other cores?

I'd like to see the CPC6128 too, as finally had a chance to go into my parents loft to look for my old Crash, Your Sinclair, Amstrad magazines, games, and old 6128 to find they were all tipped a long while back! Gutted more to find the magazines gone, but at least I have their digital equivalents now, and the games can of course be downloaded (not that I recall the numerous titles I'd bought!)

I'd like to see a core designed as a completely new machine. One which thinks outside the paradigm of CPU/GPU. To use the FPGA more intuitively and see what it's really capable of as a home computer.

Any core would assign sram use for its own needs. I don't know if the amiga had roms as well but that sort of thing would have to be placed in the sram too.
