collapseos Z80-primarily based Operating Technique | RetroRGB


I lately stumbled across Collapseos – an operating method developed to run on Z80 hardware, such as the Sega Master Technique and Genesis.  All through life, I’ve noticed restrictions* force some incredible innovations (feel: that scene in Apollo 13!) and this is an outstanding instance of that:  Developers functioning beneath the confines of Z80 hardware to make a usable operating method.

At the moment, it cannot do as well substantially, but folks who want to give it a attempt can download the SMS version right here:

To compile your personal, stop by the SMS branch of the Github:

There’s even a schematic to connect a keyboard to your SMS, which is a large assistance, as typing with the controller is tedious at greatest:


I’m definitely hunting forward to seeing if folks can feel up some sensible makes use of for this.  Heck, even much more debugging tools could be cool!

A lot more information:

*sadly, the “restrictions” place in spot for this project, are a group of folks who feel society as a entire is about to “collapse”…hence the name.  Even though it is at least technically plausible (as opposed to, say, flat earthers), the neighborhood surrounding this paranoia surely offers me the flat-earth vibe.  I’m not attempting to speak down to the folks behind the project, I’d just like to politely prepare you for what to count on if you study this project and its roots.  If you do choose to get involved, please ask them 1 query:  If society collapses and we’re all scrambling to run OS’ on a Master System…how can we get to github to download the files?
