<![CDATA[68060 Daughterboard reservation]]> http://www.fpgaarcade.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=1340&action=new I'm doing a new backplate now yes. They should be shipped out of here a week after they arrive, so end of this month roughly. I have a small number of rev6 CPUs I can test and ship with the board.

I'm on holiday in Italy with very poor data connection, but I'll look at this on my return this weekend.
Cheers,

<![CDATA[Interesting links]]> http://www.fpgaarcade.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=351&action=new A reply on a quite old post from ost...

I bought the special edition DVDs a while ago (the first one and the second one of the amiga years). In my opinion a must-have for enthusiasts of hardware and games of this time, like the replay board ;-)

Original web page here: external link to frombedroomstobillions.com

And worth supporting this guys to be so brave to make this two films to buy one of their editions on this web page.

There exists a short version in German TV (sent a while ago on ZDF Info, may be available on their IPTV platform) made out of the first DVD, called "Väter der Pixelmonster". In my opinion a very bad compilation of the original one. As usually with all this documentary with bad German translations and the whole storyline of the original one lost...

They are fundraising another one for the PS years, I am not such a console fan, though since they did everything to pi** me of the last years - basically because you can't really buy games anymore and think you can have fun with them without spending much more money afterwards --> for all this additional DLC and required community subscriptions. Especially if it feels like it is 90% the same content reused for any of the following games. They became just too greedy.

Anyhow, helps me also to save a lot of time and makes it more fun to play again one of the coinops with a friend at home from time to time. And to watch this great documentaries...

sure thing. it was my primary job for a decade now - that testsuite (and the respective fixes in chameleon and/or VICE) didnt come from nowhere smile

<![CDATA[Bronze age Atari games]]> http://www.fpgaarcade.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=1346&action=new I worked on Subs more last night and got all the sounds done except for the sonar ping. I think the LFSR in the manual is either drawn incorrectly in error or it is deliberate obfuscation to thwart copycats because when I code it as the schematic is drawn it sounds terrible. Instead I ended up doing it the same as the Sprint games and Ultra Tank which I already knew sound good and that seems to have done the trick. The next time I go to my friend's place I think I'll bring along a scope and an audio probe and have a poke around the board in his Subs to see.

So now the ping I'm going to have to think about. It produces a 1kHz sine wave that starts at full volume then decays linearly to silence over a period of about 1 second, with the envelope modulated by the random noise signal. I haven't quite decided how to go about this, I'm leaning towards synthesizing a pure sine wave and then work out a way to control the envelope.

It will be cool to get this game done as it's one that isn't emulated properly by MAME. It really needs two separate monitors otherwise you can just look at where your opponent is at any time and it takes away the fun. It also needs the overlays on the screens or it looks rather bland.

<![CDATA[daughter-board questions?]]> http://www.fpgaarcade.com/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=264&action=new All parts have arrived or are on order. One part (the USB controller) is tricky but still hoping this will arrive on time.
I'm flying to China 28th June to get the boards as part of a work trip, so we will have them in Sweden for testing first week July. \o/
