Reversi64 Development Underway

For Retrochallenge 2013 Winter Warmup, I've started in with the Reversi64 development. Here's a rundown:

Reversi64 is (will be) a networked two-player game of Reversi for the Commodore 64. It uses the Flyer Internet modem for communications. Once it's complete, I hope to roll it out for a couple of other Commodore platforms, including the Commodore C128 (in native mode), PET, and VIC-20.

My goal is to have a working prototype by the end of the month.

I've set up a website for tracking Reversi64 progress, including a dashboard of issues that I'm wrestling with, and potential solutions. It's at:

Some more screenshots and blog entries to come.

Hey, Earl -- I've enjoyed listening to your Retrobits podcast. I believe hearing on the show that you live in the Portland area (as I do). I was driving on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway the other day and saw out of the corner of the eye this place I hadn't seen before called "vintageTEK -- A Museum of Vintage Tektronix Equipment." Thought it might be up your alley if you're not familiar with it, and it's right in the area!
