65816 instruction set

LGB: yes your comments were polite but:
1) regarding NES, my point was to remark that the 65816 was successful and the 4502 wasn't.
2) I can get your point of some people just wanting a fast C64 - not me.
w4jbm:
1) yes I was talking about coding new apps - C65-specific.
2) The code I mention, the assembly snippets from codebase, would read the same. For instance, Bresenham listing would go unmodified, yet coordinates would go past 256.
gardners:
1) Thanks for answering. I'm just expressing my fears. I hope I made my point as a hobbyist.

Summarizing, as a C128 guy, I can agree forgetting it and finding a proper C64 replacement is a good idea, and this was the idea behind C65 , it's just that the C65 guts weren't it. IMO they were a mix of obsoletes, like early-80s bitplanes graphics. But then again I maybe wrong.
Anyway, the case and the drive are nice, and I hope you are successful.
