I am driven by the displays shown in the attached plots. This is my V4 software from 25 years ago. I made these plots on Windows XP running Linz V4. It would be awesome if I can do it on the FPGA.

I'm left wondering: your V4 software will still run today on Windows
10 running Linz V4 will it not? If not, why not? If it does run OK,
what are you hoping to gain by repeating the exercise on the FPGA?
