Ya for me it's all about GEOS 128 2.0 these days. I think for a few others it is still the BBS hosting benefits.

A friend of mine swapped his out recently with the Turbo Chameleon for his board, and it's unfair how fast and snappy his BBS is now. (not to mention the acceleration boost, too, which is faster than the SuperCPU!)

Noice. The REU and Speed of the TC must be a major boon to a BBS.

Eric,

Does the TC provide acceleration when used in cartridge mode, or, only in standalone mode? Is your friend using it on a 64?

Yes - the TC can provide acceleration in cartridge mode. This is precisely how I play the new Super Mario game. I load the game up on the TC via a CRT file. And the game auto-detects it.

But the TC won't accelerate every game you play with it. It's kinda like the SuperCPU in that regard.

Important: It turns out the TC can not be used with a 128. It could fry it, which is a massive flaw.
