ARCADE / Pac-Manic-Miner-Man
« on: January 20, 2013, 06:45:05 PM »
Thanks to Equites for supplying an original Midway PCB for a fantastic price and a few repairs we now have a fully working Pac-Man/Pac-Manic-Miner-Man PCB.



The games can be changed with just 5 ROM's
Ive also made a JAMMA adapter so we dont need to change the power supply or anything.

Hi all,
Am currently messing about with the above setup and whilst its fine for writing programs and saving im finding it a little frustrating trying to get a .z80 or .sna file onto the CF card.
Im pretty sure its doable by using emulators but cant for the life of me figure anything out.
Has anyone had any dealing with the simple 8 bit interface or got any ideas?

cheers
Jon

Anyway, here is my RCM related program

First running in the BSNES emulator


And on the real thing

REVIEWS (of Hardware) / Review: SD2SNES
« on: May 31, 2012, 08:57:04 PM »
This came yesterday but not had a really good play around with it but here is what Ive got so far.


Don't have a case for this thing yet but got a game from eBay for 99p so that will be its donor.
There is a USB port on the card but apparently it is not used at this time.

After downloading the firmware from the SD2SNES website and copying some random roms to the SD card I was up and running.
All the firmware runs from the SD card, there is no ROM on this device.



Very easy to use menu, nothing much really to do other than set the time and date if you want to. Select your ROM and away you go


I initially had a bit of trouble running certain games, Mario Kart was one of them. To run the different DSP games you need to download the DSP binaries that are used with certain emulators and place them in the SD2SNES folder on the SD. After this everything ran perfectly.

Couldn't resist trying a few PD roms


I havent tried it yet but I dont think SuperFX games like Star Fox are currently working but everything ive tried has worked.
It does auto region switching so all region games are supported. If you have the Super CIC mod done then it will also automatically switch between 50/60hz

So far im very happy with it. Its a bit pricey though so its may not be worth it for a lot of people. I personally love the SNES and think I will be able to justify to myself the high price tag.
