Everyone loves arcade games, and it didn't take long for designers to figure out that people would love to take the fun home. The home gaming console market has been around for decades. Through the early days of battery-powered pong style consoles through Atari and the video game crash of the early 80's, to the late 8 and 16 bit era spearheaded by The Nintendo Entertainment System and The Sega Master System and beyond, consoles have become a staple of the hacker home. This week's Hacklet features some of the best retro console projects <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href=""></a>!We start with [ThunderSqueak] saving the world with her Atari 5200 Custom Controller Build. For those who don't know, the Atari 5200 "Super System" was an 8 bit system ahead of its time. The 5200 was also saddled with on of the worst controller designs ever. The buttons would stop responding after a few hours of game play. With 17 buttons, (including a full number pad), that was a pretty major design flaw! [ThunderSqueak] hacked a cheap commercial fighting game stick to make it work with the 5200. 12 individual buttons were wired in a matrix to replace the telephone keys on the original 5200 controller. Atari's non-centering analog stick was converted over to a standard 4 switch arcade style stick. [ThunderSqueak] did leave the original pots accessible in the bottom of the enclosure for centering adjustments. Many 5200 games work great with the new setup.[DackR] is bringing back the glory days of Nintendo with Super Famicade, a homebrew 4 SNES arcade system inspired by Nintendo's Super System. Nintendo's original Super System played several customized versions of games which were available on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). [DackR] is building his own with parts from four SNES consoles. He's also adding a few features, like a touch screen, video overlay, and enhanced RGB.He's going to add custom memory monitoring hardware, which will allow him to check how many lives a player has left and handle coin operation, all without the original Super System Hardware. If you're curious what the original Super Systems looked like, check out Hackaday's Tokyo Speedrun <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="http://video.You">video.You</a> might just catch a glimpse of one![Bentendo64] is improving on the past with RGB For 'Murica. European systems have enjoyed the higher quality afforded by separate red, green and blue video lines for decades. North American gamers, however were stuck in the composite or S-Video realm until shortly before the HDTV age. [Bentendo64] had an old hotel CRT based monitor, and decided to hack an RGB input. After opening up the back of the set, he removed the yolk board and added direct inputs to the video amplifiers. We're not sure if this mod will work with every CRT, but it can't hurt to try! Just be sure to discharge those high voltage capacitors before wrenching on these old video systems. Even if a set has been unplugged for days, the caps can give a seriously painful (and dangerous) shock![Ingo S] is also working to improve the SNES with SNES AmbiPak, a mod which brings ambient lighting and "rumble pack" controller feedback to the vintage Super Nintendo. [Ingo S] used the popular SNES9X emulator to figure out where game data is stored while the SNES is running. His proof of concept was the original F-ZERO SNES game. [Ingo S] found that Every time the player's car hits the wall, the system would perform a write on address 3E:0C23. All he would need to do is monitor that address on the real hardware, and rumble the controller on a write. The real hardware proved to be a bit harder to work with though. Even these "slow" vintage systems clock their ram at around 3MHz, way too fast for an Arduino to catch a bus access. [Ingo S] is solving that problem with a Xilinx XC9572 Complex Programmable Logic Device (CPLD). CPLDs can be thought of as little brothers to Field Programmable Gate Arras (FPGAs). Even though they generally have less "room" for logic inside, CPLDs run plenty fast for decoding memory addresses. With this change, [Ingo S] is back on track to building his SNES rumble pack!It feels like we just got started – but we're already out of space for this week's Hacklet! As always, see you next week. Same hack time, same hack channel, bringing you the best of <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href=""></a>!

Retro Wristwatch

The first digital watches had this red bubble display, you need to push a button to see the time.
Details from CadeBuntu


Using the gutted-out cabinet of an old arcade machine, I am constructing an Ubuntu-based arcade capable of playing both modern and retro games.The hull of the machine was purchased for less than $100 CAD at a local arcade -- salvaged from a literal graveyard of broken machines. The old CRT and game-board was removed, and the hollow shell is all that remains. An old PC running Ubuntu Linux will be installed inside the machine and connected to the controls of the arcade via a Microcontroller board. The PC will then be connected to a mounted monitor within the arcade. The result will be a modern take on nostalgia.
