Quoted from applejuice:

The whole purpose of this project is to make a kit for people to upgrade their games so this is my new controller board that will run everything. It’s not just a rom change!
The board will be a direct drop in replacement for the original

I think I love you

Just take my money already!!!!

WW is going to be my next restoration, so I'm hoping to time it to incorporate your amazing update (I hope!). Can I ask, are you planning on keeping the original code in there also as a variant? And if so, have you thought about using the DMD to replicate the original Alphanumerical display? I love the old Sys11 pins, and as much as I love what you're doing, keeping it as original as possible appeals greatly.

I'm loving what you're doing btw!!!

You are crazy and talented. Don’t mistake our demands for updates as anything more than enthusiasm. Keep it up!!! We are all rooting for you.

So bloody exciting!!!

I'm about to start restoring my Whirlwind and I'm possibly preempting things, but can you offer/suggest any changes/mods I make in preparation of Whirlwind 2.0 while it's fully stripped?

Damn this is looking impressive! Kudos Apple!! The tornado in the background of the score is brilliant!!

I think it's been brought up before, but are you planning on having a selectable 2.0 mode and original mode? As much as I love what you're doing, keeping the original Whirlwind code on such a classic pin as a option is a huge tick. If so, is replicating the Alphanumeric display a possibility?
