That's really great news, Jim! Hope, Mikej doesn't let you wait too long... :-)

In all honesty Jim; that's a sticky point for me also; so I stay using ShapeShifter (as I'm sure many others do as well)...

Would love to try Fusion, but at this current stage, nobody can actually purchase or even try a demo version

Yes, it's great that it has better compatibility than ShapeShifter but... without any means to purchase well

I do not understand why waiting for FPGAArcade gets better core since most of the users (if not all) would use the Fusion on real Amigas. Its already been years of waiting and it can take many more...

I'm guessing that the Fusion code is very tightly connected to the Amiga hardware?

There's not a very good solution for emulating Classic Mac's on PC's these days. Basilisk II doesn't even come close to cutting it.

There's Fusion PC, and it's free now afaik.

That's a 20 year old DOS application. Not very useful I'm afraid. I'm after a modern emulator that runs on macOS.

Because this is 2020 and like it or not, FPGA emulations are mainstay now and I had to make special code for handling FPGA based features. I created the new core around these features.

Is this your personal opinion or an official judgement?

We do not want to give the feeling that you feel pressured, but as you can see, there are many of us who are hoping to be able to buy FUSION legally for a long time.
Why don't you put the new version with .iso support on sale now and later, an update with the optimized code for FPGA when the implementation of MMU will be available in the FPGAArcade?

Please don't feel attacked, it's just a suggestion.

just use the Fusion Hardfile on ShapeShifter and what are you doing poking around in A-max code anyway.

On PC there is "SheepShaver" that works well and you can emulate MAC-OS9 too.

It's a well documented fact.

No worries. I appreciate the feedback. However, the main core is all new, now using a modular system so I can support various FPGA and other add-ons with hooks in the future. That has to be tested with at least a few of these hooks before I release it because I don't want to spend a bunch of time fixing issues later on.

This is not my day job, so my time is very limited at the moment.
