Re: Pluggy Reloaded

I should add that mine did arrive over the weekend (thanks @norgate!), and I've started to assemble it, but want to get a couple of pin headers so I don't have to solder the SD adapter or Ardiuno unit directly to it before continuing. Might be a while before I can actually use it, but I am looking f...

Re: Pluggy Reloaded

There's a lot to take in in this thread, but one question I immediately have. Are any of these still available, by any chance?

Re: PucMon

Interesting thread - not only a fantastic looking game, but a ROM upgrade. Hopefully something that might help pathe my way through a similar process... sometime in the not too distant future (I hope). Great work everyone!

Re: My Gigatron Build

Thanks! And also thanks for all the info. Hopefully I'll get a PS2 keyboard tomorrow - the USB adapter I got predictably failed to work, so hopefully I'll be able to do at least a "Hello World" this weekend. May take me quite some time, but I would really like to update the ROM, and try out some of ...
