What Duce said, ...

plus, the only capability of yours is to wait for money. There is no line of code, no skills in electronic showing up. Thus, starting a new campaign, new idea for fund raising will move you back in to the same corner you've been in "under attack".
No progress, not even mentally.

Wake up.

So what's your point? That this forum is for 8-bit machines using 5.25" discs or cartridges?
My point is that arguing that nobody likes old computers on a forum dedicated to old computers is idiotic. Whether they use 5.25" discs or 3.5" discs or cartridges or tape or freaking vinyl records is utterly irrelevant.

And yet only the Armiga has bothered to include a floppy drive on their proposed new Classic Amiga. All the FPGA based ones have ignored floppys and gone with flash storage devices only. That's because you don't have to be a masochist to like old computers, if there's a way to make the "old computer" better then why not do it. Hard drives and optical drives are getting rarer as flash storage gets cheaper and the cloud looms larger.

I'm not worried about the availability of hard drives or optical media, but floppies?
Heck, they don't even make 5 1/4" floppies anymore and 3 1/2 " floppies are getting harder to get.
With their high capacity, flash cards are the only thing that makes sense.

Like the CRT when faced with the advancement of LCD technology... The old rotating media seem positively archaic now. Floppies, CDs, DVD have all disappeared from my life. I sill have a Hard drive, but that is a 3TB NAS... I never see it :)

I am very new in the concept of project and having someone to donate money to make the project a successful. I am no artist and have no idea the financial requirement to make this project and have no idea the difficult and actually the demand behind it.

Which is why you shouldn't even be considering asking others for money.
 
Crowd funding is for when you know what you want to do, how to do it and how much money it's going to cost.
 
Until you know the answer to all three of these then don't expect anyone to give you any money.
 
Otherwise all you're doing is asking for money so you can play.

This computer will have a special BASIC that have all the similar commands of these three systems plus the commands of those three systems in one BASIC language. This means you can run all BASIC games or apps from these systems in this one without needing to modify the program or port it for this machine. It will have all the RAMs and registries of each of these three different systems in place with this new system..thus all programs for NES, C64, Apple II and MSX will run natively on this machine without the required need of emulation in any regard.

What you've described is actually impossible.

Stoped using my old Amiga500 because I felt like a masochist a long time a go, and yes I made shore the Amiga500 did not work any more, lets say frustration level had picked to a point, I where able to get over slow CPU and floppy drive.

If you want to be nostalgic about some thing you better keep it original, or what else it the point, its impossible to be nostalgic about some thing that was made yesterday.

Anyway whats the problem whit making old Amiga computer better is that, you get kind of sandwich computer that you can move or touch whit out fear of some thing coming lose, and you spend days trying to find out what is not plugged in correctly.

And that's way I did not buy a Amiga4000 when did have money, I just where not that mad, anyway I'm happy being a AmigaOS4 user, not nostalgic about hardware, but I'm nostalgic about the OS.

I have no interest in NES, I have no interest in MSX, I have no interest in Apple II. I have an interest in C64.

I already have two C64 machines, three if you count the dud C64GS.

I have no interest in buying this proposed machine. I'm not sure how many people would be interested at all really.

I love to hear ideas, but this doesn't seem a good one. Don't take it the wrong way, you'll come up with something better I'm sure.

Yet no serious retro gamer would ever use an old 8/16-bit system with an LCD.  Flash carts on the other hand are very useful :)

I disagree. I have several old 14" 15khz monitors that I use, but I also use LCD's. I've even been known to use a composite video capture usb to use the laptop lcd as you don't need to be plugged into power.
 
None of them look like the TV that I used in the 80's, which died about 7 years ago.

Between this and the comment about the C64, you've managed to alienate me.

I agree, I love my A1200 but the best thing about it is using WHDLOAD to play games (my floppy drive doesn't get much use!)
Life begins at 100 MIPS!
