Al, that is correct. You can read the source files to see basically
what isn't done.

I've mirrored the old site, and provided links to new site
much work was left to be done to fully implement all the video modes,
sprites, collision detection and other parts of the custom chip
I honestly have played with it too much, but a lot of games, etc run
fine on it. I would think that a large portion of what you mention is
sufficiently completed for that to be true.

There is no interface for a floppy drive on the minimig. Most software
is available in .ADFs --- or you have to make them yourself.

No doubt. I had a CoCo II where I learned a fair bit about computers.
