Re: Any tutorials on wiring your own Playstation 1 mouse?

It's too custom, and way more than a wiring job which is why there is scent information on it. PC mice use PS/2, serial or USB.. The Playstation uses a slightly tweaked version of SPI. I don't think much reverse engineering had been done. I would say it's not possible to wire a mouse into a pad beca...

Link here https://github.com/danhans42/videopod/r ... T_DISC.zip

@Shadow - feel free to rehost here - file was too big to upload.

Enjoy

Re: Video IDU test v1.1 disc

That's the one.. I have two of those.

I will get the disc dumped for you this weekend. I'll upload it here.

Re: Video IDU test v1.1 disc

I have no idea how much they are worth to be honest. I am quite happy to just dump one for you, they are the PAL version (unsure if there is an NTSC version). I actually got the disc, and the controller adapter along with a Sony refurbished SCPH-1002 years ago. Someone on eBay had a load of them for...

Re: Video IDU test v1.1 disc

Hello and welcome,

I will check later today for you, if not I still have two of the original CD's and can redump them if needed.

Out of interest, does your demo unit have the white box that interfaces the controls to the control port? I just wondered as I have two of those too.

Assemblergames.com going in 30 days

Thought this might be worth a mention here. Seems that assemblergames.com will be no more by the end of June. It has looked like that has been on the cards for a while. I really do not want to get into a discussion about the way that site was run, or anything else speculative - thats not the point. ...

Re: Yet Another New User!

Hello and welcome to the forum! Basically, I had some knowledge and experience - all mainly Arduino/VS and Python - but my C skills were completely non-existent. Even now, my C programming is poor at best. I learnt what I know today by initially using the Yaroze environment to build simple console a...

Re: Recompile Yaroze Source

This is great work and a great first post!! will give it a try.

So with this approach, along with the source version of siocons we pretty much can leave DOS behind for Yaroze development. Yay!

Re: ESP8266 Wifi Experiments

Thanks!

Work is still on-going. The ESP8266 firmware I am using seems to have some problems with incoming data that I am working through - I have been testing it with the modded versions of xflash and the ROM downloads were always corrupt.

Have started work on a simpler version for the ESP-32 wroom.

Re: Newer X-Flash Builds

Have now added progress bar in the SIO send functions, which works perfectly and looks much better. Started looking at building a client in VS... gave up after 15 minutes. Will stick with Python3 and look at using QT, Tkinter or something to get a GUI. Also tried running at higher speeds, only tried...

Re: Newer X-Flash Builds

Thanks Dan, worked like a charm so far (dumped a few bioses and carts). Sure it's slower than LPT but it's a really nice addition you brought there ! :) Any possibility to add a progress bar on psx side while transfer occurs ? Thanks for testing, and for the feedback. Glad it worked for well you. I...

Re: Newer X-Flash Builds

Seems the Python serial module (pyserial) is not installed by default. Forgot about that ooops - I will add that in the readme. On Windows, go to a command prompt and type 'pip install pyserial' on a command line. You will need to ensure you have Python and PIP in your path.. this is usually done on...

Re: Xplorer carts

I have added BIOS and ROM dumping functionality into a multi purpose serial tool I am working on that is built on the xflash sources, and it works perfectly. Currently has no CRC checks in place but every ROM dump so far has 100% verified against the original (verified with a flash programmer). Ill ...

Then pulled A18 low and works perfectly which is suprising given my wiring is horrific. Next step, work out how to replicate the functio...

Re: Compiling X-Flash

Excellent,

Well get involved then? I had no idea that anyone else was working on this as couldnt find anything public.

Back to the datasheets then to see if there is any differences in the commands/address used to pull the ID..
