Just because! A home computer without microprocessor

The computer without microprocessor is becoming dual core.

Today it ran its first 6502 program.

All of the 6502 addressing modes are implemented, and a fair amount of instructions as well. The v6502 interpreter runs in place of the standard 16-bits application vCPU. Switching between the two virtual processors vCPU and v6502 is a matter of modifying a zero page variable. The video driver dispatches at the next available scan line, so very lightweight.
