Re: Introducing the VeriSNES (FPGA-based SNES)

Right. A while ago I'd discovered that in France, due to SECAM, their NES had to use RGB. Same exact issue with imported NTSC consoles (popular here before the online era); RGB cable was mandatory in order to see… colours. But what I was asking was—given that SCART does, for good and ill, actually ...

Re: Introducing the VeriSNES (FPGA-based SNES)

And Finland as well, every TV came with SCART, and consoles shipped with SCART adapters, because not every TV had composite input. Those adapters were naturally composite -> scart, not true RGB; true RGB cables were sold everywhere. Yep… those little RCA to SCART adapters. They always stayed in the...

Re: Introducing the VeriSNES (FPGA-based SNES)

And ... maybe SCART users in europe? How prevalent was that? I'm from Italy and I don't remember any TV without SCART since I was a kid (look at my nickname for guessing how old I am). My first use of SCART was with a Philips TV and my C64 in the 80s. Here a RGB SCART cable was the first mandatory ...

Re: Introducing the VeriSNES (FPGA-based SNES)

Having been in the open source circles for ages, most projects get very little donations, even if they actively ask for them. True, anyway you’re right saying “most”... not all. It depends on many factors. Anyway, I didn’t mean “big money”, just some “thankfulness” money and much gratitude and love...

Re: Introducing the VeriSNES (FPGA-based SNES)

The time for releasing it as a commercial product is gone I disagree. I gladly accept your disagreement. We’re here to discuss. I think there's room in the market for more than one FPGA SNES. But of course it requires the sizable extra effort of building a finished product rather than just a protot...

Re: Introducing the VeriSNES (FPGA-based SNES)

Hi, this is my first post so let me preface my entire writing which could seem crude or polemical without any premise: First of all I hope your family member solved its medical issue: health and family first. Let me thank you for getting me interested in FPGA. I watched with marvel your YouTube vide...
