EWM Update: Lo-Res Graphics

I’m slightly surprised that I am still hacking on this side project. Usually life and actual work get in the way or drain the energy to levels where I don’t want to write much code at home.

But here we are .. I now have an Apple ][+ with 48 K RAM, disk controller, text and lo-res graphics pretty much implemented. See two screenshots of the COLOR DEMOSOFT app from the DOS 3.3 System Master disk. I think the colors are pretty decent, but they should probably be a little more bland.

My goal was to run Lemonade Stand, and I am getting close. The game actually works but it runs so fast that the interstitials take like 200 milliseconds. I did not spend much time on speed accurate emulation yet.

If you are interested in playing around with my emulator, you can find the project at github.com/st3fan/ewm.
