Sorry, I should have made it more clear. I can help you get into contact with Kevin, and I am definitely going to try to sell Kevin on the idea myself, but in the end, he will care more about technical information on porting to the ASCII platform and an ASCII platform dev kit. As I stated in my earlier posts, I have been following Kevin's FPGA system for a long time now, eagerly waiting for its release, but he has stated a few times now that he doubts if he will ever be able to sell it due to the initial costs of manufacturing the hardware.

But from what I have heard Quietust, Memblers, and other prominent NES developers say about his platform, after seeing a live demo of it, is that it is the end-all-be-all emulation of the NES... and considering that Quietust is the author of the most accurate software NES emulator, Nintendulator, that is saying quite allot. Kevin aka "kevtris" can be a difficult guy to contact. I typically just post questions to him at the NESWorld forums and he would post replies there. Other people claim that he is bad at responding to emails, but he seems to know Quietust and Memblers on a personal basis... and those guys are far easier to contact.

Does Bazix or ASCII have detailed English language documentation on their platform? I think that would be the best thing to gather together right now, as that way we can at least get a comment from Kevin as to how easy it would be for him to do the porting. If he thinks it is easy, then further convincing might just require a dev-kit.

Probably the One Chip could also support C64, Amstrad, ZX Spectrum and Sega Master System.

The One-Chip could support all 8-bit gaming systems. The problem is that it takes allot of work to recreate each system at the circuit-level, which is what is required when creating a new core for an FPGA. Maybe we could convince the C-One group to switch over to the One-Chip platform? A console that natively supports MSX, Famicom/NES, and C64 would be very popular.

that could be a great step forward
they should work together
that means cheaper 1chmsxés

Working together would be great. But it won't happen.

A grumpy old bastard who is no member of MSXA, ASCII or BAZIX and is thus prolly talking smurf ^_^
