Hehe... are you per chance somehow related to the guy 
listed as Stella developer called Thomas Jentzsch?

If so: Hey, I want Command line switches in Cyberstella 
too! <eg>

Now - serious. Uhm... some ultra-minimal commandline 
stuff was already available in Windows Stella1.1.3a and 
when I ported the whole thing from Dialog based to the 
SDI Application it is now, I didn't bother to reinstall 
that mechanism. I never thought this might be of any 
use, since Cyberstella has this nice and fancy browsing 
listcontrol and for all homebrew developing purposes I 
use Z26 myself... :rolleyes:

Actually in more than a year Andrew now is the first to 
complain about the missing commandline jumpstart of 

Well, I just got back to work on Cyberstella after 
almost a year long pause and unfortunately I can't offer 
a quick solution here. I've to catch up with the 
revamped 1.3 core sound code first, I don't even get the 
windows version to compile at the moment...

BTW: Might sound silly, but I'd really wish that either 
the Stella team would quit the project and would start 
to work and support the Z26 development or the other way 
round. If then the PCAE guy would let this Delphi thing 
die as well and would join the team of the only 
surviving emulator, I'd be the happiest guy on planet 

It's such a waste of talent to have three independent 
VCS emulators of that high quality. Just thinking about 
this giant amount of totally redundant work bothers me.

Just imagine "what if" John and Eckhard would've worked 
all their current Z26 knowledge into the Stella core, 
rather than spending a years time porting Z26 to
