I'm taking about the cycle-exact, more faithful SIDPlay, not teh cack PlaySID (which, yes, runs even onan A500). The cycle-exact emulator eats a lot of machinery, however Drake, I dunno about yoru PC, but my Pentium 133 ran the SIDPlay for Windows with the reSIDengine (more CPU intensive) without problems. However, SIDPlay 2 can clog up my P3-866 when I do a lot of other stuff...
How's that, emulating teh soundchip of an 8 bit computer can make an 866 MHz machine bent on its knees!
SIDPlay for Amiga needs an 060 or as PPC, cant remember.
