Quake 2 needs an FPU.

Does it emulate an 060 or a 000?
Neither. It's not an emulator of a 68k CPU but a new 68k like processor. Apollo supports most of the integer 68020+ instructions and addressing modes (Phoenix in the Vampire 600 did not have room). From the last I heard, it's missing some rare (on the Amiga) 68020+ integer instructions, it only supports 68000 stack frames and it does *not* have a 68k compatible MMU or an FPU. Of course all this could change in an fpga.
