Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

We just uploaded the newest version of the Arcade Blaster application. There are 15 new game variants and LogicStart MegaWing support for all PacMan variants. If you have a LogicStart MegaWing this is the easiest way to play video games on it!

The Arcade Blaster is a multi-platform application that simplifies using Papilio Arcade kit and eliminates the need to directly work on HDL sources. It runs on both Windows and Linux and uses command line tools from various sources.

Coming Soon! Atari 2600 on the Papilio Arcade.

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Good news, the Open Source Atari 2600 project, A2601, is now working on the Papilio Arcade hardware. We got some time to work on the NTSC to VGA conversion and we have some video of the A2601 with VGA output in action. We hope to have the code cleaned up and ready for release very soon!

Stand Alone YM Music Player with ZPUino 1.0 release.

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Hey everyone! To celebrate the release of the new MIDI Audio Wing and ZPUino 1.0 we are releasing a slew of new audio examples. In fact, we made a whole new Wiki dedicated to audio applications for the Papilio. Check it out over at http://audio.GadgetFactory.net.

The first example is a stand alone ym player that lets you load a ym file to SPI Flash and play it back on a model of the YM2149 audio chip without any help from a computer. The YM2149 is the audio chip that was used in popular computers like the Atari ST so there are HUGE repositories of ym files available on the Internet, google is your friend. To get more details, source code, and bit files head over to the projects Wiki page.
