It’s a x68000 emulator.  What made me jump was looking was the license on github:

Which is the normal BSD license… But the other v0.65 source code makes no mention.  Oh well, I guess it’s really not BSD licensed then?  I need to keep banging on system16 anyways…

But in this case the graphics are for GTK of all things, and are hard coded to only run on 15/16bit displays.  SO by removing the requirement I got it to display something.  Also the IPL roms need to be in $HOME/.keropi .  It plays R-Type well enough, but at the same time so does MAME.

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
