MEGA65 wants you!

append delete Deft

Hi everybody,

the machine is progressing well as you have seen on facebook and the MEGA homepage, still we could use some help to speed things up and/or do better and more. At the moment we are looking for a talented graphics artist. Oh, and coders (VHDL, 6502, C++) are always welcome. If you might be interested don't hesitate to contact us here, over or via Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately i'm not a coder, and haven't photoshopped for quite some time - but i just tossed a donation at this project to help a little.

I can write C/C++ (and a few other languages). What sort of stuff do you need?

hi deft, count me in^^

For what kind of graphic work would you need an artist for? Any examples?

I'm a graphic designer (interface, retro games, web, logo, typography ...). Maybe I can help you.

Hi all,

thank you very much for your replies. May I kindly ask you to contact me over the form at ? We can definitely use all of your help and are excited to work with you!

EOF is already working on the MEGA65, for ZeHa and Retrofan: We need people for a) Boxart and illustrations and b) retro pixelation of Demos and Games we have in mind. Pmprog: There is need for tools, code prototyping etc.

Oh least one of you emailed and I seem to have lost that email again :(
I know it's just horrible but at the moment there are just too many things to do at once. Please accept my honest apology and keep sending me mails over the forms on or ... we really want and need your help!

Okay I guess this could have been my email. I will send another one...

I'm a bit gutted, I got the dev board a while ago, but not even had chance to get it out of the box yet :(

Yeah, I'd like to help out with this project when I can spare a moment. Got experience in C, java, some C++, and have dabbled with VHDL in the past.

I've ordered the Nexys board, and hope to make this my pet project to enjoy in my spare moments. It will probably take me a while to get up to speed with things before I can contribute anything useful, but once I feel like I've found my feet, I'll ping you via email :)

Awesome! VHDL help is really appreciated, please contact us via! It also would be super if someone could port the mist-minimig AMIGA core to nexys4 / Artix7 so it will be possible to run the MEGA65 as an AMIGA for fun ;)

Hi Deft,
Yes I am keen to contribute to this project. I have some vhdl and engineering experience.

Any hardware testing needed? Hand building prototype pcb's up etc?

MC6502-II, 6510? I used to tons of stuff on the C-64, hacks and encoders. But it's been more than 25 years since.
