MegaGRRL Desktop is a simplified respin of my original MegaGRRL portable YM2612 VGM player. Play Sega Genesis and Master System music from an SD card using the original sound chips. Development continues on a portable player, but the desktop version is now available for anyone to build.
Hi everyone! Sorry, I've been forgetting to update hackaday.io with progress on this project. Short story is the hardware has been working well, and a few people have let me know they've built their own, which I'm pretty flattered to hear.
Software was 90% there when I released the project at the end of December. It was functional, but missing a lot of polish. I've been chipping away at it over the last few months, and it's finally getting close to what I'd consider a feature-complete 1.0. Of course it's usable for all of the project's original goals, but I keep thinking of new cool things to add!
Here's a screenshot of the home screen, which I just finished doing a new full-color background for.
As far as the portable version is concerned, I think I'm going to discontinue working on it in its original form. But, I have something really awesome planned for later this year that should be interesting to anyone who wants a portable player. Stay tuned to the website and Twitter for news on that when it becomes available!
