Very cool project. I'm a software engineer and a Whirlwind owner. It was great looking through your code. I liked seeing the way that you had it all laid out and broken up.

If you ever make it available, I'd love to test it out.

Between this and the Whitewater reorchestration, i'm waiting on a couple of long running projects to come to fruition. But given the amount of works that's all being done in spare time, it's no wonder they take a long time. Then kids show up and take up all of that extra time...

I'm trying to figure out how someone will complain about this since there's no original to compare it to.

Needs more clouds.

Does this mean that your board would work with any system 11?

I know that you have the older code shared, but are you interested in sharing any of the new stuff?

Quoted from goingincirclez:

I'm down for a DIY kit whenever they're ready... but don't wish to rush perfection of course Take your time!
Is the board designed for all thru-hole components or will I have to learn SM skills?

It looks 100% thru hole.

3 possible scenarios here:

1. there was an issue
2. it's so much fun that he can't stop playing
3. The entire machine and Applejuice just exploded due to the sheer awesomeness.

Quoted from applejuice:

No, it’s just my new version. The hardware is geared towards that . Trying to run emulated original code just adds all sorts of unnecessary headaches and costs
If you want to run the original game use your original hardware

I won't lie, I was hoping for a mode selection to go between the two versions. But it's also not my project

I'm on board.

All of the components are through hole, right?
