@anna I'm in bed atm but can you give me the "literal futaba" role in discord in honor of my n64 exploits
Hmmm. I bet I can add a TEXTCONSOLE command to vmctl that connects to vmd and streams monochrome video memory back to the client, interpreting it into a curses screen.
That's sorta how Janus worked on the Amiga, just retrieving text memory and displaying it in a console window. It would wig out pretty easily though...
I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to bolt on a front-end to vmd. I know you can run it in an interactive instead of daemonized configuration.
I could add another argument that sets up an ncurses-based interpretation of text mode VRAM to start? I’m not trying to handle graphics modes yet, just text.
