The real progress is that this was loaded as a precompiled *.gt1 file. Gt1 is the newly defined object file format for vCPU programs. The code running, life3.gt1 was created by at67 on the other side of the world using his own assembler and tested in an emulator. This is my test to see if the file can be loaded and executed on actual hardware, and it works! So we now have a standard for exchanging Gigatron programs!
