Definitely an interesting piece of history. I've never seen such a structured dev kit for the NES before. The SNES, on the other hand, had several commercial dev kits.

Would these TSOP adapters work for converting a Doom cart into a Star Fox 2 cart?

The cart's menu looks and sounds well designed. I also like the use of the controller port. Would it be possible to network two NES systems together?

So I got an email from RetroZone that the SNES PowerPak orders are being put on hold due to a compatibility issue that was found before shipping out most of the PowerPaks. Does anybody know what the issue is?

I confirmed that myself. It was a bug in the original game, not the NES PowerPak.

Wow, thanks for the quick response. I'll try to go buy an official one soon. It doesn't necessarily have to be an official Nintendo brand power adapter. It just has to be a non-crappy power adapter that meets the NES's specifications. However, the easiest bet is to just go with an official Nintendo...

How about supporting the Super Game Boy? Seriously though, which would be more difficult, the supporting the FX chip or the Super Game Boy?

I had this same issue when I used a third-party power adapter with my NES. When I switched to an official Nintendo brand power adapter, the problem went away.

The Sufami Turbo is sort of like the SNES's Aladdin Deck Enhancer. It should be do-able on the SNES PowerPak.

I've bought several items from RetroZone over a period of the past few years, and I've never had a problem.

The xc2s15 has 192 slices (unless the info I found is incorrect). If those are what bunnyboy referred to when he said the chip is about 60% full, then you've got about 75 slices left. I don't know if PicoBlaze would fit in that - maybe it would. It wouldn't, but then again, you don't need all the m...

Does the SNES PowerPak's FPGA have enough room left for the PicoBlaze core?

I just bought one SNES PowerPak with all of the upgrades (because I'm lazy). I have one question though. What version of the DSP1 chip are you using? Aren't there multiple versions? DSP1, DSP1a, and DSP1b?

Isnt bunnyboy working on a snes powerpak From this link I would say the answer is yes. Unless this is information about a different snes dev cart. I don't believe he ever made such an announcement. There are other SNES projects out there including one with the idea of loading roms from a SD memory ...
