Okay so I just watched the latest Mega65 update video and with a stock 256k RAM and 40mhz CPU that is so similar to the 6502 would be cool to see and Image BBS running on it.  That is made for the c65!  I just want to put that out there as Bucko & X-Tec need another project LOL!!!

Seriously though a BBS would run awesome on there and there could even be multi node ability! From what little I have played with on the current Mega 65 emulator it really can do some amazing things!

The Kats Alley BBS -=[ bbs.8bitboyz.com:6502 ]=- ....Running Image 3.0 for the C64
8-Bit Boyz BBS -=[ bbs.8bitboyz.com:6502 ]=- ....Running Mystic on Windows

Actually, I threw my 1.2b system on the Ultimate 64 at 40mhz, it was ridiculously fast!! I couldn't believe it but unfortunately my setup had a uIEC/SD working as a HD and it couldn't keep up with the 40mhz, and it was corrupting files.. NOW I am being told the new U64 has a fast drive setup which can handle up to 255 partitions. Once I figure out how to use it and set it up and Image has no issues with it, I will setup a 3.0 board on the U64 at 38.4k running at 40mhz, and instantaneous Drive access.. If it all works, that will be one FAST c64 board!!

I don't know how to use the fast drive access or the 255 partitions. I think the next update Gideon sends out will include the entire setup.. I would love to see it run that way also. Like I said if I can get my setup going when the next update comes out I will play around with a temp setup to see how it runs. I won't run my board on the U64 anymore as I am afraid of destroying it during the lightening storm. Even though I can shut it down remotely.
