That's just WRONG!  Funny, but WRONG!  :D


My sister who spent several hours reading me HEX codes as I typed them in did not think it was very funny either....

That should be interesting.  Keep us updated.


Will do, just waiting for the minor parts now. All the major components have arrived from digikey. With this and the GBA1000 builds its going to be a fun few months.

Like the SuperVIC and MonsterSID? http://c64upgra.de/c-one/  Kamelito


I had a C-one and none of those features ever happened.

They did finally get a c64 core working decently with the FPGA64 project and then with the FGPA upgrade PCB, there was a beta of the Chameleon 64 core.

Cool hardware but a few design issues and no complete software left a lot to be desired.

I was ironic, I heard that Jerry lost her job at Valve, she has time now to finish the C1. Kamelito

It seems that none of the FPGA projects worked out well for her.  The C-one with IC and the Mammoth Toys deal I guess were both bust financially for her.

I would have loved to have seen a Super VIC/SID as listed in those design concept documents!  I doubt the stock C-one would have had the ability to do it as well.

Wow, what qualifies you to speak for Jerry and her time?  I would presume that she has bills to pay and likes to eat, just as we all do.  She's more than likely out looking for another job to pay her bills and buy food rather than spending it on FPGA projects that DON'T bring ANY income to her.

I am unsure as to your harsh tone in this response.  I agreed, I would imagine that she is looking for a good job rather than making FPGA projects.  My original post stated that. I don't think anyone meant any disrespect towards Jeri.

As I posted, the C-one and the DTV projects did not work out well for her.  

The DTV, although successful, Mammoth worked out the deal in such a way that she got nearly nothing from the contract.  

The C-one was not a financial success for anyone.

A C65 core sounds great and I bet a C128 is do able.
I hear that a Chameleon has an accelerator that seems to rival a Super CPU in some way.

But the Chameleon 64 lacks SID filters and doesn't sound very well at all in standalone mode... I've asked several times in the beta testing list but they don't seem interested in implementing them. I'm thinking about selling the Chameleon 64.

How about the MCC-216 does it have the filters?

I think it had some kind of filter (whatever that moron Frenchshark stole from open source solutions available), but it didn't sound true to a C64 either.
I don't have MCC-216 anymore. I'm glad I got rid of that bug-ridden POS.

Sound like I need to get a real machine or stick with emulation.
I wish I had a FPGA Computer that has all the bells and whistles.

 No disrepect here, I very much like what she's doing, I meant if she wants to... The C1 was a dream machine to me and I was disappointed so see how it end. I own 2 C64DTV, the Chameleon is interesting but it seems that it will never be out of beta.  I hope that the Clone-A will come true even if I don't really know what it'll be. I just know that its for everyone not geek only.  Kamelito

Work is being done to model the SID analog filters in the digital domain.
The Replay board has a high-quality 24bit/192K DAC so it is as transparent as possible.
I don't know how close we will get, but it should be a very good approximation.

I have talked to a number of people working on this over the last few years.
