About sharing technical information. What about setting up a some sort of Wiki were we all can submit technical information about various Sega systems ? That would give all of us a good knowledge base without the need for sharing code.
this is indeed a very good idea !
I don't really know how that kind of stuff works but maybe starting explaining each sub-section (VDP, YM2612, MEMORY MANGMENT...) based on official documentation would be a good start
then anybody could add its own findings or undocumented quirks
If it needs hosting (or mirroring) I can give the space. I really suck at web stuff so I dunno if my host has the "right" stuff installed (ASP,PHP,MySQL etc..) to support installing of wiki.
What are your thoughts about this ? Personally I would like to have a dedicated website for this, because it will not only cover the MegaDrive/Genesis but also other Sega consoles (and perhaps arcades ?) as well. I also want to be able to upload existing documents (such as the official hardware/programming manuals etc)How about improve http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Genesis_Programming instead of creating new Wiki?
I like the idea of having sub-sections in it. It will make things more structured.
So please share your ideas
