Such graceful, delicate creatures.


One of the articles about it said it'll work with the Sega CD, I wonder how that'll hook up or if it has enough power for the extra hardware and will run images off an SD card. I didn't see any mention of the 32x though.

Maybe someday when the site comes back up, it'll have that info.

[edit]This article has more.

Short version - the Sega CD connects normally to the edge connector, the 32x is no-go right now. If I remember, it actually did something weird with overlaying the 32x's images on top of the Genesis' images via the video cable, and I guess that won't work with digital. But they're thinking about ways around it.

Now I just wonder how it'll look sitting on top of my Model 2 Sega CD, hopefully it's close to Genesis 2 sized.

I am a whore for Analogue's FPGA consoles, but at this rate I should've just bought a friggin' Framemeister and been done with it.

Apparently it has connections for you to hook a Sega CD into it and they're still working on 32X stuff. I totally want one of these for Master System stuff though.

I have used 41 of 300 characters allowed.


I already have like 5 Geneses across 4 models so Iím not going to pick this up, especially since it canít do 32x or CD on its own. It does look really good though and Iím glad now people just starting the hobby will have an easy answer to the ďhow do I play sonic in my he tvĒ that doesnít involve a scaler.

Though the cost of a framemeister seems lower than buying 2 analogue consoles now.

I have a Framemeister and a modded Genesis, and I'm still considering buying this.

If it gets hacked to play Sega CD games off of an SD card, I'm sold.

Also, TG-16 when?

I'm also seeing something about there being a Game Gear adapter? How many Sega systems are we going to be able to play on this thing? Maybe a stupid question, but is this going to require multiple flash carts?

Saw this the other day, hard for me to justify the price especially knowing we are finally getting an Analogue Sega console: https://www.kickstarter.com/project...oject&term=fpga

I have some mild nostalgia for the ColecoVision, maybe if I were made of money I would pick one up as well.

They're going to do adapters later on, right now it comes with a master system one.

Coming with the Master System adapter is cool, and since the adapters are only $10 each the Game Gear one is a no-brainer to pick up once that's a thing. It's like having a Super Gameboy for my Genesis

The Super NT was an easy buy for me since I've got a ton of SNES games, but my Genesis library is a lot smaller so I'm probably going to wait and see what they do about 32X stuff and how well the Sega CD stuff plays out before really thinking about getting one of these. I'm not a fan of having to use the original Sega CD with this since those are all pretty old and many aren't working well anymore, but I guess it's hard to make something to solve that problem.

I have a Genesis 2 and a OSSC (and my Mega EverDrive is arriving on Wednesday), and I'm still considering getting this. The Game Gear adapter is icing on the cake, because I was just about to go down the rabbit hole of LCD-modding my current Game Gear.

SONIC BOOM!!!


Sega CD and Game Gear support?

Now i'm intrigued.

Also, the SMS support should theoretically allow SG-1000 games, since iirc an Everdrive on a stock Genesis will play SG-1000 roms.

The Genesis doesnít have the SG-1000 chip but it can play them on the Master Everdrive in a SMS.

Wonder if they solve the nightmare of the Genesis soundchip. Finding the right model with good sound makes this sound like a better alternative.

I'm excited to see all the positive response to this! I also posted a different cut to the Warhammer thread, which you can find here: https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...4#post488893102


I typed up about half of my process and then bumped the page back button and lost it. Basically I took a screenshot, split it into layers, loaded it into Inkscape, built vectors around the edges, and then sent it to my laser cutter.

For color, I went with B&W Gameboy here because I thought the grayscale would work great with the laser cutter. The main problem with color is it becomes a huge time factor. These didn't take too long to cut or assemble, but doing any sort of finishing, like the stain in the other photo, adds a ton of time to processing these. I might make a few to see how they come out.

As for selling these, not sure yet. I'll see about making a few more. This was a sort of experiment between making myself some Warhammer supplies, but people seem to like it a lot so I might try something out.


Great catch! Thanks for pointing it out, it would suck to make a bunch of these and have that defect. I've changed my emulator settings so my next cuts will come out better.

I would put these up on my sons wall. I got him into retro games, I was sick of him playing the new generation of games, there is nothing like the games we grew up on, somewhere developers really lost the art of making fun games that are simple yet complicated enough for strategy and reaction timing. Too much emphasis on graphics it seems and tons of buttons and combinations to do things. He has fun with some new games too but the amount in retro is by far more substantial. He digs the pixelated graphics and these would fly real good with him and hanging on his wall! Excellent project my man!

They list a US and Japanese versions, as well as two others. Are they all the same and that's just a colour scheme thing?

Yeah, it's just the color scheme and you can see it in the gif. The US version color scheme has grey buttons and a red led, the Japanese one has blue buttons and more of a magenta power window. They also have the PAL one with the white power and buttons, and a solid white version.

It looks like the Analogue system will support them, since they've announced cartridge adaptors for SG-1000 and SC-3000.

Silhouette thought that SG-1000 games could run on a Genesis when it canít.

The adapters look pretty slick though.

I think it's just the video chip in the Genesis doesn't support the SG1000 video mode. IIRC F-16 fighting falcon uses an sg1000 mode and also won't work.
