Discrete Logic NES clone

Today I got hold of a “MASTERGAMES” nes clone. Here’s a photo of my device I am not very fond on most NES clones, because they basicly are system-On-A-Chip devices that emulate certain hardware (in this case a NES). There are other system-On-A-Chip devices (Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Atari 2600, Intellivision, and some others) Most of…


RGB Cables, time to try

So, I finally took some time to build myself an RGB cable for my sega genesis/Mega Drive. I now have nice sharp picture in full color @ 60Hz (I have a PAL console, since I live in the Netherlands) Today was the day I took some time to test it, and play a nice little…


more Arduino TV-OUT….GAMING

Hey people, As stated earlier today, I was playing around with the Arduino TV-OUT library. I did a BASIC demo and posted it this morning, but now I wanted to take it one step further. My friend GertK/KGE made a pong game on the LPC800 platform, and I took his code and ported that to…


Arduino TV out

Hey people, This morning I was playing around with the arduino tv-out library and I thought to myself… Why not make a nice demo where some weird basic is loading something. the demo turned out pretty cool, so I decided to go further from here. I want to add either a blinking or static cursor,…


Not much done….

Hey people…. A lot of time gone by….but no updates. I have been so busy with work and stuff, I didn’t have much time to do anything. I did manage to get hold of a FamiClone and this weekend, I will be getting my hands on a Super Famicom. First thing I will do is…


Rom burner package…best thing I’ve bought!!!

So…. You read about the previous 2 posts about my DATA IO CHIPLAB DIP-48 programmer, now it’s time for a hands on. I installed the software that came with it on a 3,5″ floppydisk. Target machine was an old Toshiba 1910 laptop, running a 486 CPU @ 33MHz and os-es are DOS 6.22 and Windows…


Rom burner came in!

Hey people!!! The Chiplab DIP48-1 came in today!! Looking at the documentation learned me it’s much more than “just” an eprom programmer!! It programs eproms, eeproms, PLD’s, PAL chips, CPLD and even some 16xx and a few 17xx series PIC Microcontrollers !! The deal included a UV eraser and some eproms (mostly 4k and 8k…


Playing around with a salvaged 2×16 LCD

Ok, so now I was just playing around…. I salvaged a display from some broken device. I couldn’t wait to get the thing to display my text and take input from me. I recreated a BASIC/READY prompt from the (by me) beloved C64/C128/C16/other basic driven home computers. It takes input from my arduino’s serial monitor,…


A new piece of hardware added to the collection

I finally got hold of an eprom programmer and a UV eraser. The programmer comes in it’s original box with software, cable, PSU and the original documentation. The guy getting rid of it, also decided to throw some eproms in the deal Really cool!! This is the thing:


PC Based Arcade cabinets – The horror continues

So I finally got hold of a working geforce2 MX card and tried to boot the game…. no luck The MegaJAMMA lpt board does some handshaking. So now I have to find out what it does and how it’s done. More work to be done… Keep you guys updated…
