just a wild guess that the 68k is referring to the motorola 68000 microprocessor which was used in the sega genesis and tons of other devices... sometimes as a main CPU and sometimes as a sound processing unit and probably other things as well. we are building a 68k system this semester and it is sweet knowing we are actually building a system with parts that were in video game consoles.

if you just skimmed this, i did not say these are sega genesis games.

Nope, the x68K had a bit more powerful processor. According to this site, the main CPU is a Hitachi HD68HC000, which (again, according to that site) ran at 10/15Mhz. I think the Motorola 68000 ran somewhere around the order of 8Mhz. If I had to take a guess, I wouldn't be surprised if that Hitachi was based off of the Motorola 68k series. That's pretty awesome, though; I wish I was taking a class in which I could build stuff like that.

Found a couple interesting articles, for anyone who cares. Which may be only myself.

A 1983 article on the PC-8800
History of the PC-9800
Wikipedia article on x68k - seems that it does use a Motorola processor, my mistake

Still can't find any decent PC88/98 games, but I managed to get an x86 emulator working. Hah, it took me a while to realize that there were stairs going down...I've never played CV all that much...after getting mutilated a couple times by these guys, I finally figured out to just go down.

Apparently the X68k version of Castlevania is INSANELY hard and they toned down the difficulty for Castlevania Chronicles.

Phew! i have been busy but finally i get to jump in on this thread! Thank you norrin for posting this, mad boner props. :lol:

I switched browsers to firefox and got it working, because i used to have problems with the download manager locking up on me, thats why i didn't use firefox, but i cleared the cache and installed the new version and it works fine now.

Thank GOD for the tool, DownThemAll, so i could get these! (way faster than normal that is)

Ranger-X has been naming off some really good ones, and i have been jamming to these for about 10 minutes here and found this cool track:

Falcom - PC-88 - Sengoku Sorcerian - SS093 4-2

I got that when I first installed it. Try re-installing it and make sure everything is in the same directory and you should be fine.

Also, where/how did you get that emulator up and running?

Hmm, it isn't all that hard, from what I've played of it. The thing that makes it challening is that you can only whip in the standard CV1 directions. Actually, now that I think about it, you can whip down while you're in the air, but that's it. As far as the actual emulation goes, check these pages out:

http://www.emuasylum.....=Sharp x68000 (is posting this link allowed?)

When the game comes up, you'll want to press one so you can hear the rad FM music instead of the lame other stuff. Let me know if you guys find any working PC-8800/9800 games.

Well, I use a joypad, so I didn't have that problem...but I imagine that you should be able to change them.
