Re: Time for Zarch .... on the beeb?!

Just to note, that you don't need any special ROMs to run a standard 6502 coprocessor. Don't you need DNFS or a DFS with the Tube code in it if you haven't got one already fitted?

Re: Time for Zarch .... on the beeb?!

I thought about it for a while as I think you could do something reasonable with the Pi co-pro but came to the conclusion that it's a bit beyond me!
