[dream]Yeah that is the difficult part… what if instead of a Raspberry Pi it would use Z80 and R800 in FPGA, those implementations are quite mature (well Z80 part). Basically take an OCM but only use CPU and S1990 stuff… [/dream]

But R800 for most purposes is not needed, a fast Z80 for use in Nextor should be enough. Software switchable speed could be great for e.g. SofaRun (so Games that need to can run on low speed).

I have such -half finished- project. Z80 (T80 based) in FPGA to substitute a real Z80. Must finish that someday...first finish playing with a Z380 to seen how that fares...
