This weekend, after losing the VGA text mode due to the new screen resolution, I needed to put it back in so that I could do more debugging. So, it's been added back in (ESC key). Also a fast reset (F10) has been implemented.
Next I will be working on timing and some optimizations. On an older Pentium 4 machine, its rather slow at reading the keyboard due to the display resolution. Then I can get back to some of the integration features (harddisk drives 9-11, partitions, USB, networking, etc). Ive also been trading some improvements with the original emulation author. Great guy to work with.
I was able to get a pretty cool game running with all the VIC-II fixes put in. Its a pacman clone. Here's some pics:
