and even (get this) a sound card, using the CGA composite video output as a sound output :)
but i gotta get it working first, lol.
any more questions about any of this stuff?
what are you going to use for the analog end ? palette /dac
Sounds like some fun projects. I was thinking at first this was going to be more vintage hardware rather than this more "modern" stuff. ;)
@niksgarage right now it is just a resistor ladder DAC. it's not great but it's better than i thought it would be
the palette will be done using block RAM in the FPGA
@tubetime What FPGA device(s) are you using?
it's super interesting project , though i'm getting ptsd remembering all the various modes to support
there are some tricks to it, like the palette DAC is also a dual port memory
@Kevin it's an ICE-40
@charliex i'm not really looking forward to the complex beast that is EGA
Thanks all, transcript coming up. And don't forget to tune in next week for Mitxela and MIDI:
@tubetime i feel you
@tubetime Are you publishing information on your projects somewhere other than Twitter?
right now the lead article is my Twitter best-of threads lol
ok, ty. I don't use Twitter or Facebook
for me, i use twitter because it's a very low friction way of posting project updates
i can bust out the phone, snap a photo, tweet it with some text, maybe tack it onto an existing thread, and it just works and it doesn't slow me down
for the blog i have to download the images, process them to shrink them down, then upload them to the wordpress, edit the article, blah blah
takes like an hour that i'd rather spend on the project itself :)
I wouldn't have thought it takes that long but there is a difference in doing real time posting of work in progress vs. documenting work done over a longer period of time.
I mostly put up information about projects after major milestones.
yeah wordpress needs a twitter like thing so i can record and add to a post quickly for notes, especially when you go back to later after a long session and dont always remember the procedures you did, sometimes i've done a thing twice just to document it
the struggle is real
or really, any site dedicated to hosting projects could use something like that. maybe a phone app
trying to think if i know any sites that would be good for hosting projects...
not til they add export/backups
@Dan Maloney oh see there you go!
^ see my comment heh
