Apple II core now running on MiST FPGA

I bought a MiST FPGA a few months ago in order to get that "instant on" experience that you just don't experience with emulators on PC/Mac.
At the time, MiST had hardware emulation of the Atari ST, Amiga (MiniMig core) and Atari 8-bit.
It's darn cool. There are occasional compatibility issues with the ST and Amiga cores, but the Atari 8-bit core hasn't failed me yet.

On top of additional Arcade, C64 and Spectrum cores that have appeared, it's now running an Apple II core as well. I successfully loaded Drol last night, but there are still a few issues with the joystick to work out.

Cool stuff. Thought a few people might find it interesting.

Cool! I wonder if MiST would pass the Atari ACID compatibility test?

Re: Apple II core now running on MiST FPGA

I get most of the way through, then there's graphics corruption so I'd say no. I've posted on Atari Age to see whether it's a settings issue, the FPGA itself, or just bad luck on my part.

(for the non-Atari people, the Acid 800 test is a stress test designed to check emulation accuracy)

Re: Apple II core now running on MiST FPGA

My mistake, apparently. I had an older version of the test program. Current version passes on the FPGA.
