RetroTINK upscaler for Uzebox & Others

Just if you are wondering what options you might have to get your Uzebox or some other machine you have on the television (with HDMI input). RetroTINK seems to be a pretty decent upscaler, a bit pricey, but not exorbitantly so! The main point is that if you have a nice monitor or television with no ...

Re: Unibox - WIP 2020 EUzebox BOM

I presume the other type of power jack is used on the UB PCB? If not, we should fix that in the official BOM txt file. Yes, that jack is on mine (V1.3.1 PCB). The holes are big on the PCB, so for it, that jack fits better, even though in a pinch you could likely solder the other one on it just as w...

Re: SPI RAM games

CUzeBox supports the SPI RAM! So you can try all the demos with it to see what they look like! :) The difficulty is that SPI RAM is SPI. You can get one byte from it in 18 cycles at best. One scanline is 1820 cycles, which translates to at most 101 bytes fetched. The SPI RAM kernel's various demos e...

Re: Unibox - WIP 2020 EUzebox BOM

It looks like this is the sort of power jack I need if I'm sticking with the barrel connector: https://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail/en/cui-devices/PJ-102A/CP-102A-ND/275425 I presume that the other type of power jack is what you would want if you were using a proper Uzebox PCB and not a breadbo...

Re: SPI RAM games

Nothing I am aware of. I made a specialized kernel though, here, with some demos, but then I didn't continue that effort, last thing I tried was optimizing the sprite blitter further.

Re: CUzeBox - The new official Uzebox emulator

No, I tried compiling (unpatched) against the latest 2.0.12, and got no sound, then I tried compiling against 2.0.4 and it had sound, but my gamepad wasn't recognized. Then I searched "SDL 2.0.12 windows no sound" and discovered why and added the patch I posted in this thread. I can try the version...

Re: Unibox

Did you buy from the same vendor ie did you buy yours from the seller you linked to? I bought 2 without really thinking about it then re-read the item description and realised I may be receiving either 4 or 10 boards! It says 2PCS in the main description then 5PCS later on. How many boards did you ...

Re: CUzeBox - The new official Uzebox emulator

Hi, sorry I didn't have access to a Windows machine and only had spotty Internet. The only versions I tested on Windows were 2.0.4 and 2.0.12, which works with the patch I posted. If you need intermediate versions tested I can do that. You mean the problem is present with SDL2 2.0.4? :shock: (That ...

Re: Unibox

I picked the perfboards up from Amazon, unable to find reasonable ones on electronics webstores. Something like this one would work, there are many similar of various sizes, this one linked is larger than that I build that contraption with an SRAM chip and a couple of latches added, a Uzebox should ...

Re: Unibox

I have bought 2 of these: https://www.digikey.co.uk/products/en?k ... 2E%2FTO-ND These are for the SD Card, they take 5V input, and produce the 3.3V required by the card. Looks like I should've bought 5 of these instead for the regulators: https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/linear-voltage-regulators/78...
