It has been done by the guys down at NESDev. They use 27c128, 27c256, 27c512, 27c010, and, in some cases like EarthBOund Zero, 27c020 EPROMs to burn NES ROMS to cartridge. They just match them up to mapper and change the scrolling type (H/V) if needed.

Actually, I'd like to see an Inty portable...I just can't bear to rip mine apart. Don't flame me over it, but I have spent many a happy hour playing Pitfall, Astroblast, and Star Strike. ^^

Re: LCD and PSOne draw

I'd figure a maximum of 2 amps....it will probably draw a bit less most of the time, but it can draw that much sometimes.

PSoneA concept picture!

Here is a concept picture of my portable PSone design. I draw it with a mouse, and LOVE how it turned out. Below it is a sheet of PSone buttons, joystick, switches, and lights which you guys can use to make your own PSone portable design pics if you want to. Feel free to use the sheet! http://www.an...

It isn't just expense. It is also that memory sticks are newer technology and may not work well with a DOS/Commodore-based system.

Re: Another Question

Yes, they will. I did that exact same thing with the exact same batteries with my Super Famicom A.

Well, I have an EPROM burner that can burn the kinds of EPROMs used to replace NES cartridge chips, so I can make 8-bit game carts probably. I also have a decent number of those chips. Plus, those may be cheaper than memory sticks, and more likely to work. After all, we are talking about 1980s softw...

Yeah, it's possible, even if it isn't all that practical. I would base it off of those small "Computers on a chip" They only run around 30 mhz and use ext. ram, but they should work great for this application True...On second thought, maybe if I made one, I should base it either on the Commodore li...

Homebrew game system?

Hello, I am an electronics guy who is starting to learn programming language(QuickBasic4.5) and i am wondering if I can use my EPROM burner to make a DOS-based primitive console that reads cartridges. Before I start trying to design it, I'd like to know if it is possible.

BEAUTIFUL! I have a question... What kind of processing power is needed for a MAME cabinet meant to play games up to and including 16-bit equivalents? I have a couple spare Pentium 133MHz boards here....and even a couple PII/Celeron compies. ^^ I am also wondering what OS I should use for one. I'm n...

Agreed. There is only one chip on the (S)NES controller board anyway. I'd guess that it only took a few milliamps to power the controller.

It's not worth $200. You can buy them for $99-120 on Ebay depending on completeness. True, but they don't always sell for full retail on Ebay. Either way, I saved a lot. ^^ Oh, and if the screen ever looks kinda dim on your Vectrex, just reset. That's what I learned last night. Hey, does anyone els...
