IIRC this used some custom mods on a Jamma board. Mainly the sound unit was separate and had its own distinctive samples. I'm not sure about the rest....

Based on a 6800 and had 320x256 screen

There has been interest in making a Williams hardware VHDL definition expressed before. I think the biggest hurdle was the need for more memory for games like joust. People were waiting for the Papilio Plus before attempting it is the last I heard. :)
