EWM Update: Replica 1

I have been posting a lot of pictures and movies of the progress that I’ve been making with my Apple ][+ emulator. That is going pretty well, but the project actually started as an Apple 1 emulator. And I have to admin that I have been neglecting that part.

So here is some progress on the Apple 1 side. I just finished a native terminal, using the same character generator as the Apple ][+. I think they are pretty similar.

(I actually emulate two machine profiles: ‘Apple 1, 6502, 8K RAM, 256B ROM’ and ‘Replica 1, 65C02, 48K RAM, 8KB KRUSADER ROM’. The attached recording is the latter in action.)

I hope to package this up in an actual macOS application in the coming days and put a 0.1 online for people to try out. It ain’t real until you ship it!

A Windows build is also on my list, but I have zero clue about Windows. Hopefully a C compiler is freely available these days?

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