Hi from the Netherlands (X16 VERA Designer)


Recommended Posts

Great stuff, Frank. 

I've only been playing around with it for a week or so. Seems to work really well (in the Emulator at least). 

Easy to use. 👍

Really looking forward to getting my hands on one when they're available for general consumption.

Cheers

Troy

Thank You for VERA. Can It be ported to Commodore64 and Atari800? Its amazing chip!
That depends on what you'd call "ported". It's already been stated there's a C64 version (for testing) and that there may be an official release later, iirc. I'm not sure about the feasibility for an Atari, depends on whether it has a compatible expansion connector.

Hello all,

My name is Frank van den Hoef and I am responsible for the design of the VERA module (the audio, video and storage hardware module), which is part of the Commander X16.

 

Hello Frank. I have been making a short vera mode demo program for the x16 and I must say that I am really impressed with your card design. If the card you have created would be available in the 80s, that would have been a real differentiator from VGA. I can't wait to see your card at work in time real X16 machine. If you're interested, it's this program I'm talking about ...

It would be great to have a C64 Vera cartridge with a 512KB geoRAM compatible RAM expansion built in (which is a couple of registers in EXROM1 and a page of the expansion RAM appearing in EXROM2, so much easier to implement than the REU).

I'd bring my VIC20 out of storage if I could get an 80 column display and memory expansion for it. Just can't live with 22 column BASIC 2.0. It would be neat to make new stuff specifically for/with a VIC20 with a VERA cartridge.

PS. Frank, you rock! 🙂
