I think part the problem with these is you need a dead real one for the chips to be ripped off :(
Thats the same problem we have with the STF remake :( I am buying bulk lots of chips of what I can, but the rest will have to go FPGA :(

Then the problem comes that if you replacing X amount of chips with a FPGA why not just go full FPGA and emulate the thing (Atari/Amiga/Amstrad/Sega whatever else) anyhow, that's a whole other argument right there :lol:

Very blurry lines between emulation/real hardware/remakes and emulated parts :shock:

I'm guessing it would be near impossible to have new runs of the original chips made and if so I can only imagine the costs :shock:

Indeed. If we put everything in a FPGA, we end up with a MiST, or suska etc. So what would be the point in the project. There's been talks on here about it already anyway.

If people would just open up their projects. Constantly reinventing the wheel is stupid.
That’s exactly why I do open mine
