Sid! (1 comment)

Added by foft about 1 month ago

Been trying out including sid into a build.

I have it mapped it 0xd240-0xd25f, but so far not getting much output. I think it might be my skills at changing the address in the player. Is there a player where I can change the address?

Core v36 released (3 comments)

Added by foft about 1 month ago

EclaireXL only change:
Debug sub-menu which allows entering the freezer on an address/data match.
i) Set the address
ii) Set the data (optional)
iii) Press R to trigger on read of address (optional)
iv) Press W to trigger on write of address (optional, though to enable use one of read or write)
v) Press M to trigger only if the data matches (optional)
When the condition is met, the freezer is activated and an nmi triggered. So a few cycles later you are in the freezer and can see the state.

Pokeymax V2 and EclaireXL debugging

Added by foft about 1 month ago

No updates here for a while, but its not all quiet!

I finished the board layout for the v2 of the pokeymax. The pcbs have been made for a prototype run, crossing my fingers that it all works. If you are interested in one, here is the thread:

I've been working on basic debugging support for the EclaireXL. We already have the turbo freezer, many thanks again to Hias. However it would be good to be able to trigger this on a memory access, so I've been adding this. Its now possible to select an address, read/write trigger and optional data match. When this occurs it raises an nmi and jumps into the freezer. Of course the CPU address moved a little during the NMI sequence but I hope it will still be useful.

Backported more features

Added by foft 3 months ago

mist/mcctv/mcc216: pll switching, gtia based svideo, profile support (put sdflash.bin in roms)
all: fixed reset on .car file insertion

I should have mentioned before the EclaireXl builds are now going in the standard area, though there aren't really significant improvements to that in these builds.
build_A2EBArom is v1
build_A4EBArom is v2 (board marked v3)
build_A4EBAromv3 and build_A2EBAromv3 is the mini. You need to use the appropriate one for your FPGA.

Cartridge housing (1 comment)

Happy New Year everyone!

Pretty slow days on the project, I've not been very motivated recently. This is cyclical though, sure it'll change again in a month or two! If anyone wants to spur me on by voting for a feature please do so in comments:-)

I decided to install/learn some 3d printing tools to make a cartridge housing. For that I decided to use Autodesk Fusion 360. Here is my first attempt that I just sent for printing. I'm crossing my fingers it works ok but I wouldn't be surprised if not!
