Glad to see this finally released into the wild after reading about it on the wiki and seeing references to it in the Uzenet discussions. Can't test it right now but I will as soon as I get an opportunity. Really nice to have another simple classic game available for the system. I think adding some ...

Awesome. In addition to the rotary encoder taking the place of the d-pad, will the normal remaining buttons be used? Most games that would benefit from the encoder also use a limited number of buttons.

We do have an unused player 2 controller port compared to the normal Uzebox and there was that whole uzelink idea a while ago if I'm not mistaken. For me personally, using a cable is outdated but it definitely brings back memories of linking up 2 of the old brick gameboys for a pokemon battle as a k...
Added a new download to the main post for version 1.0. I did some minor touch ups and slimmed it down a bit by taking out the online uzenet related code and all associated menus. Also stripped out a few extra sound patches that weren't being used. The github source has been branched into local only ...
Nice work. My highest score right now is 979. Love how crisp it looks in black and white. The new home screen looks nice. Would love for it to have a high scores table and some nice sound effects & music.
It's effectively done for local play. I've been giving the menus some thought recently, particularly how sound is controlled and the option to select between NES and SNES controller layout, and an option to reset eeprom scores. I plan on making a few tweaks and maybe even adding some easter eggs for...

Will this one have the cutout in the back with the extension header poking through? Because I vote no to that (the opening in the controller bothers me somehow), but yes to holes in the pcb that allow you to attach the pins yourself if you want. I think the current page looks great, but yes a video ...
The power source is supposed to be regulated. Never took the multimeter to it in order to test that claim to be honest, might have to tomorrow. Either way it looks like my first smd solder job is going to be a green led
Looks like there's the expected 5 volts being applied to the led during operation. I think the LED is just kaput. Checking in one direction yields 2k ohm resistance (as expected) and the other reads a bit over 1k. It also just BARELY lights up in that direction. Not really sure what I did to it but ...

Hey guys! Late last year I decided to finally build something I'd been trying to get around to for years. Back in college I first learned of people stuffing a microATX pc into their old NES and running their emulators on it. Naturally I wanted to do the same, but I hated the way a lot of the builds ...
