|In reply to Comment 46 (Crumb // AAT):|
Executor has a much easier time, because the people at Apple did a much better job at enforcing that *all* hardware access goes through a well-defined API (which Executor implements natively). In other words, all memory accesses in Executor-emulated code are really to RAM.On the Amiga, anyone and everyone hits all sorts of hardware directly. In particular, screen data gets written by applications directly into gfx card memory. Which means that simply using memory in reverse order would result in the display being turned 180 degrees....Also, while doing so avoids the need for byte swaps, it makes it necessary to do some maths on the addresses before using them --- which was faster on a 386 (no bswap instruction), but actually takes more time on modern processors.To avoid that, you'd have to use inverted logic all the way through, which is just too twisted to seriously consider...
