  • py65

    Emulate 6502-based microcomputer systems in Python

  • Luckily there is a nice 6502 emulator, py65, that makes development easier. Without that I don't think I would have every attempted this. Once I got it running on the emulator it was fairly straight forward getting it to run on the breadboard 6502. Working on the actual hardware did provide some unique challenges though.

  • 6502

    Code for the 6502 microprocessor, mostly for the Replica 1 computer.

  • For a command line program I started out with getting WOZMON working and then began adding more capabilities similar to the Apple II system of old. I got tired of adding one-off functionality and discovered Forth when looking at programming languages suited for systems with limited resources. Look into TaliForth2 to get up and running fast on your 6502. The full program requires 24k ROM but can be slimmed down to fit in 16k pretty easily. I was inspired so I wrote my own Forth 2012 Standard version over the summer.

    A Subroutine Threaded Code (STC) ANS-like Forth for the 65c02

  • Cosmic-Conquest-1982

    (Historic) Resurrecting one of the first real time strategy (RTS) games from 1982. Written in Forth.

  • Cosmic Conquest was a challenge on r/Forth to get an old Apple II game written in Forth running on modern hardware. u/rickcarlino spearheaded the effort, documented in his GitHub. I thought it would be a nice project to try out on my new Forth system. It gave my system a workout and enabled me to identify a few bugs I hadn't seen before..
