Here’s the fully functional CPU I designed when I was 16. It’s 8bit and has its own assembly language.

    @uyouthe what did you use for designing it. And if the files are. Still around, can you let us play around with it. Porting Doom to it should be possible.

    @p100sch I used old labview. Files are in https://github.com/uyouthe/...

    Good luck lol, I can’t even open it anymore because I can remember absolutely nothing about labview and how to do this stuff. But I still probably can design a similar cpu out of triggers with pen and paper
