Re: how to burn in a 27c1024 EPROM a single .gt1 file

Once upon a time I got my hands on some prototyping boards with 156mil gold fingers and had considered making a ROM cartridge for each Gigatron game, but quickly realized how much cheaper an SD card solution would be:P

Re: how to burn in a 27c1024 EPROM a single .gt1 file

"Can I use an Arduino Nano instead an Arduino Uno (after being compiled for Arduino Nano in Arduino IDE)" Yes, you can. You will need to tether the Gigatron to a PC that runs the Python script. Consider also either https://forum.gigatron.io/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=332 or https://forum.giga...

Re: Gigatron 512k and more

Nice work! Fun fact, I had to do an exhaustive fit, but I got the entire Gigatron (less SRAM and ROM) to fit in the XC95144 part! This is a nice way to characterize the size of this part. I gave it a try : https://github.com/lb3361/gigatron-lb/tree/v8/extension-crazy/bonus . However I could not mak...
