Re: CUzeBox - The new official Uzebox emulator

Would it be possible to add a simple real-time SPIRAM viewer to this? You could press one of the currently unused function keys (F1 or F6) and it would open a small window to the side, like a mini built-in hex editor. Or if that's too complicated to implement, even just being able to dump the SPIRA...

I feel this little Atmega644 still has more juice to offer. :D
To think about that I have the code of an Outrun-style racing game partially designed already... If only I had more energy to do this stuff. But maybe CunningFellow would still come up eventually with a variant of Super Hexagon!

Re: Insane Contraption

Thank you :) I don't feel that much bottlenecked by debugging capabilities myself, I could easily get a functional NTSC signal out of it (since it is by PWM on this system, it is easy to verify that it would be cycle accurate, really, it is actually surprisingly easy to just throw together some rand...

Re: Hi to the UzeBox community

For the super-little Uzebox, wouldn't this one fit?: Uzebox AVCore , the schematics exists on our Downloads page . I have some doubts whether a useful oscilloscope is feasible since normally the highest sample rate which you would be able to get is 15.6KHz, due to how the display works (you can only...

Re: Insane Contraption

Wow, this is awesome! With something like mode 3, would cycles be the limiting factor for the blitter, or would this allow many more 8x8 sprites on the screen than mode 3 does on a Uzebox? Mode 3 is certainly a tricky beast on this one, but once coded, it wouldn't be anything difficult to use in te...

Re: Insane Contraption

Just a bit of (lack of) progress report. Seems like it is a lot more difficult to get myself developing the emulator than soldering stuff together (now that I have the equipment for it). But I would like to innovate in this regard, if I can manage. To build a new emulator based on CUzeBox, retaining...

Re: Arcade versions of Dr Mario (Pill Dropper MD) and MegaTris

Interestingly, when you do zap that block (and only with a red sequence) the virus count goes haywire too. That's because the virus_count field is just after the playfield in the bottle structure, so if you start writing past the array bounds, then that gets corrupted first (undefined behaviour, bu...

Re: Arcade versions of Dr Mario (Pill Dropper MD) and MegaTris

One thing I thought I would mention for anyone trying the game. Make sure you move the PLevel to 3 , 4 or 5 when playing. ... Well, that certainly did lower the difficulty from level sheer lunacy to a rather friendly just about impossible. Trying (Struggling? Blundering?) to play on Student :lol: I...

Re: Insane Contraption

The adventure continues, now also using the 32K SRAM system. I sorted out the differences, now I have code (including video mode) which is running on both. So one further step forth. IC32_test.jpg There is quite some clutter on my desk :P The metal box below the TV is an actual E-Uzebox (with an SPI...

Re: Hi to the UzeBox community

Neat stuff, thanks for posting! Could indeed be an interesting opportunity for those who would like to pick it up assembled! Any thoughts? Particularly in the bootloader? Not like there is much opportunity to do anything with it (there is only 4 bytes of ROM left I think), but let us know if you fou...
