Re: UART support

I have tried using

#define UZEMC _SFR_IO8(26)

With Uzem but it doesn't print the characters assigned to UZEMC to the console until I quit uzem.

Would it be possible to have have uzem output to the console and have it print the output instantly?

Re: Foal of un1b0x

It's fair to say my soldering skills have a lot or room for improvement. The first few components took several attempts to solder because I didn't have my soldering iron set to a high enough temp, all standard beginners mistakes I'm sure. Do we think I might've butchered this PCB already or might th...

Re: Foal of un1b0x

I have got as far as p12 in the assembly guide so far. If I measure the voltage between pin 1 and 7 on the first SNES pad, I only get about 2.5V for a split second before the voltage quickly drops to down to nothing. If I measure the voltage at the power jack I get a steady 4.1V, despite the power a...

Re: Foal of un1b0x

On p11:

"To insure it hold firmly, bend the pins on the soldering side."

To ensure it holds...

p12:

"Insure the opposite pin (the longest one) inserts in the hole which has a little "+" next to it."

*Ensure.

Re: Foal of un1b0x

I have superglued it to the board now. As long as the contacts are aligned correctly, could that actually be enough for the encoder? Of course I'd need to solder it into place to ensure reliable contacts but it might be an idea for me to try it without any soldered contacts first (after attaching ev...

Re: Foal of un1b0x

I think I've got all the components I need to start putting together my UB now. As part of the process I am going to give my feedback on following the UB assembly guide ( http://uzebox.org/files/UzeboxAssemblyGuideV1.7.pdf ) as an electronics newb so that if Uze does decide to update it he might tak...

Re: Starduino Port WIP

This looks amazing for the spec of the UB / Arduino.

It looks like it never got a Uzebox release tho? Say it ain't so!

Foal of un1b0x

Last year I tried to hack together a Euzebox, the ill-fated un1b0x, but it was too ambitious for an electronics newb like me. Uze sent me a Uzebox PCB a while ago but its only today I finally found the time and patience to work out what parts I was missing to create a regular UB and get them ordered...

Re: How to get Uzebox PCBs

Once you receive your PCBs, check out the assembly guide: http://uzebox.org/files/UzeboxAssemblyGuideV1.7.pdf It wasn't until reading this thread that I discovered there is an assembly guide for the UB. I have been unable to find a link to this file anywhere on the UB website. On the Downloads page...
