There are millions of fans that didnt know that homebrew stuff and diy hw exist.They are playing old games... Magazine will be fine.PDF or paper.Also game distribution.Some ki...

Re: Pokitto Game Handheld For Makers

Maybe we can use it as smart gamepad - on Sega there will be game and on Pokitto map, weapons, inventory... Or for minigames as modern VMU.

TF530 as MD 68030 turbocard?

With latest demoscene production there is sense using Amiga/Atari turbocards inside our Sega MD/Genny... Here is Terrible Fire TF530 turbocard.It works on Amiga also on Atari ST too.It is opensource... GitHub https://github.com/terriblefire/tf530?files=1 Picture https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DBF9rSzXs...

Re: I need coder+writers MD/GENNY diskmag!!!

OK I will do.
Best will be to have some kind of universal engine:
- txt file for text with some kind of script (like html)
- vgm or tfm music player
- picture viewer (pixelart -> png/bmp to sega format)
- reading up/down page
- left/right next page
Animated gif? For intro?

But here the color grid is 32x192, which means 2 colors can appear in an 8 x 1 pixel area. The MSX has an overall background zero-color, selectable from the 15. This also d...

Atari ST/AMIGA mouse on SEGA?

Sega Mouse is rare. So what about using Atari ST or AMIGA mouse instead of SEGA? Simply by using simple driver in game / software? There are also som reductions for AMIGA/ST: http://amigastore.eu/en/414-rys-mkii-usb-adapter.html http://www.mkl211015.altervista.org/ps2mhiiri627/ For using standard PC...
