Cycle accurate 68k soft core!! This is a massive thing. Argh, need to finish #JagSD, but so many temptations... 😁😬😁
Patreon Early-Access Video: New MiSTer Atari ST Core . ST has a 68000 which is now cycle-accurate & open-source! So this is a huge upgrade for lots of MiSTer cores. Could make Jaguar, Neo Geo, & Saturn FPGAs easier too.

This is ace! I love e-ink displays...
I have built an #IoT device with an #ESP8266 and a 7.5" #e_Ink screen. It feeds on 4 AAA batteries, "wakes up" once a day to download via WiFi the latest #xkcd comic and update the image (now set up to download a random one every time for demo & testing) - @xkcdComic

Oooh, nice. There is a version of the T900 C compiler which works in later OS's than XP. This saves a load of faff with virtual machines and XP installs.
Check out this new development framework for Neo Geo Pocket Color homebrew developers! This is something that has been sorely missed for many years. Thanks to @AMelianRGD

Oooooooh! How cycle accurate? Do we get to see full screen effects all working properly? Looks likely from the first pic... 😍 I didn't know there was a cycle accurate 68k soft core.

Mmmm, pretty. I'm a pixel art whore, and I'm not ashamed... 😆
Someone has a weekend, and we are busy with construction here 😊

It was a pleasure doing an interview with Retro Video Gamer @RetroGamingRVG, and you can read it here! It's always nice to reminisce about the glory days of game development -- with a thick pair of rose tinted glasses on, ahem. 🙂

That's funny, you normally get that symbol on apples not pumpkins. Ba-da-Bing. Thank-you, I'm here all night! 😆

Holy cow, the things Aussies throw out. The best I manage to find skip diving is soggy plasterboard... and this one time, some Tupperware! Oh what a day! 🙄

As its Friday... another picture in my "someone else's fantastic artwork converted to a 16 colour STE compatible palette" series. It always amazes me what stunning artwork you can get out of 320x200 and 16 colours from 4096.

A blast from the past -- Mercury HG. I was behind all the tech of that game from the tools and game engine to the mercury blob handling. Still massively proud of it. The soundtrack from Sugar Jesus was bloody awesome, too. Good times. 🤟

I still remember creating an auto fire circuit with mine and hooking it up to the left mouse button on my Atari ST with Dungeon Master running. It was to level up a fighter by repeatedly swinging his sword -- can't remember if it worked... lol. 😆
Retweet this is you used to play with one of these when you were a kid!

Ok, this may be the final one -- I've integrated the game detail panel into the marquee section. Its flows better I think. I've included two versions, one with white on black text. I prefer the black text myself, everything seems to gel better.

Latest revision of the #JaguarSD game selection menu mock-up -- fairly happy with it now. Bolder and slightly larger font used for the text and I've created a better marquee template to insert the box art and a screen shot. Comments welcome. 😀
