probably needs the code supplied by the z180, currently we just do an RTS instruction for it, it might clear sprite ram or such. If it's still present once the MCU is decapped and dumped I'll consider looking at it, but until then the simulation is highly questionable.

That blue part on the lower right started in 0.138u1. The little bit in the upper center .. as far back as 0.37b15 (first windows build) it's happened.

What would be nice is to see what is supposed to be drawn here.

well it could be anything, as I said, the Z180 isn't dumped, and it provides code to the 68k, which could easily put something else there

/* Ghox 68K reads data from MCU shared RAM and writes it to main RAM.
       It then subroutine jumps to main RAM and executes this code.
       Here, we're just returning a RTS instruction for now.
       See above ghox_mcu_w routine. */

There is some handcrafted code in there to provide some functions, but I doubt it's been verified against the real hardware, and at the end of the day the Z180 dump is needed before sound will work anyway.

The Toaplan2 Z180 dumps are some of the 'essential' decaps that really need doing as a high priority. (I don't even think Guru / Dr. have a Ghox tho)
