Episode Notes:

1. Captured using a few emulators but mainly XM6.

2. The x68000 was supported until 1993.

3. Its games library consisted of over 800 games.

4. Later models used the 32-bit X68030 CPU.

5. Unlike many computers of the time, it had dedicated sprite and background hardware. This was one of the reasons a 1987 computer could do games from 1990’s so well visually.

6. Some of its later games had nasty load times due to the floppy disc swapping. Games like Fatal Fury Special needed to load from as many as 3 discs in between matches.

7. A few of the segments have what appears to be a slightly jerky framerate. This isn’t the X68000. The screen capture software I use did not like the emulator and produced this side effect. I’ll use different means in the future. I do apologize for the look of it.
