Really? Some people told me 3rd-party add-ins such as Kucalc's overclocking program did not work in it, same for that raycaster someone (him?) wrote a few years ago.
Programs doing direct hardware access are most likely going to crash.

Not really. I do almost all of my z80 asm programming without the use of any system calls. It's kinda my philosphy. Pure z80 code without a hint of TiOS. Plus it"s a lot faster too.

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

And will work on pretty much any OS.  I used system calls a lot for debugging, until I learned that you could use a spare ram page and log stuff.

Directly accessing the hardware will probably crash an emulator :P

That also depends on the emulator.  A good emulator will emulate the hardware exactly.  This helps debug qwirks and such that the device has.

^This. After all, if the emu emulates the hardware perfectly, it will run any OS or file supported by the real machine.
