Hardware Simulator Keeps Crashing when testing RAM64
This post was updated on .
I'm trying to test my RAM64 HDL, but the hardware simulator keeps hanging with no errors. I have a fairly high-end workstation with plenty of memory, I updated Java, and I have already forced the the hardware simulator to use the Java chip implementations by renaming the previous bit/register/RAM8 hdl files. Thinking that maybe my PC was allocating memory faster than the Java GC could keep up with, I even tried slowing the clock rate in the simulator all the way down, and it still hung.
I'm fairly sure it's a Java problem and not my HDL (crossing fingers...), because it builds directly on the previously taught concepts that I had no problems with. So if someone could do me a favor and please take a look at my posted HDL and let me know if it looks correct, I would greatly appreciate it. I'll remove the code when I get some feedback.

So it still doesn't run on my workstation, but it runs fine on my laptop without changing a thing. I use notepad++, so I opened up my source file and checked that it was using utf-8 encoding, and that there were no tabs just spaces, but I couldn't find anything wrong with it? As long as it works on my laptop, I should be fine. I'll report back if I ever figure out what fixes it.
