without comments

DISCLAIMER: some of the items below may require years before being looked at… don’t hold your breath!

short term items

  • Add more Dip Locations to MAME drivers
  • Complete the MESS User Manual and upload it on MESS Wiki
  • Improve sysinfo.dat for MESS:
    1. add missing systems
    2. update old entries for RAM sizes, BIOS and devices
    3. add more keyboard layouts
    4. add Configs / DIPs / Categories with explaination (v3.0)
    5. add instructions to load images to each device of each system (v4.0)
    6. add more usage instructions to each system (v5.0)
  • Add support for natural keyboard emulation to MESS drivers which do not have it (ongoing)
  • Add Kyotronic 85 (and clones) to MESS
  • Convince Atari 800XL to correctly boot in MESS (and support for other XL/XE systems) (ongoing)

  • Add proper floppy drive support to C64 in MESS and optimize the code so that it can work on nowadays PC
