Several people were sent test copies of Analogue’s much anticipated prototype DAC (digital to analogue converter), which connects the Super Nt and Mega Sg, and future Analogue products, to CRT TVs, Monitors, and PVMs. I posted a video overview of the unit, and another video showing off light gun support.
The Analogue Mega Sg and Super Nt received official firmware updates this week, and two days later the unofficial custom “jailbreak” firmwares were updated. Both received a host of fixes and new features, perhaps the most exciting being the addition of special chips (DSP-1, DSP-2, DSP-3, DSP-4, CX4, ST010, ST011) to the Super Nt. Super […]
I just posted the Analogue Mega Sg Jailbreak firmware v7.5 on Github. This release brings all of the fixes from official firmware v4.5, plus: CD BIOS replacement works now after a reboot Coleco Gradius mapper + flash memory supported. Use extension .CF0 for this game. Coleco Jungle Hunt / Learning with Leeper had stuttering scrolling. […]
On Saturday, I interviewed Kevtris, the coder behind the Analogue products, about what to expect from his upcoming Mega Sg update, and today the new firmware has been released publicly. In our chat, Kev also revealed that the Mega Sg scaler/scanliner is going to be ported to the Super Nt, that an Intellivision core will […]
The Analogue Mega Sg just got another firmware update, both for the jailbroken version, as well as the “official” firmware. Honestly though, there’s zero reason to use the official firmware; Even if you predominately use an Everdrive for Genesis and SMS ROMs, this jailbreak allows for Game Gear and Colecovision ROMs to be played as well!!! […]
An “unofficial” firmware for the newly-released Mega Sg has just been posted. This allows the launch of Genesis, Master System, Game Gear and Colecovision ROMs from an SD card connected to the console. The firmware also implements a few bugfixes and feature tweaks. The firmware and more information can be found here and pics of […]
Analogue has just announced that they’re shipping the Mega Sg a bit early, on March 25th. I think it’s always a good thing to be conservative in estimated shipping dates, as it’s human nature to be bummed when something is late and excited when it’s early…definitely not something we’re used to in the retro gaming […]
It’s time to get Hardcore with your Sega Genesis… (Couldn’t resist!) All kidding aside, Analogue announced that their upcoming FPGA clone of the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive will be bundled with Hardcore, a 99% finished game that was canceled 23 years ago. The game was canceled in 1994 due to developer Psygnosis losing faith in 16-bit game […]
Analogue has just released firmware version 4.7 for the SuperNT that fixes a bug with Super Game Boy. No further details on the issue were given. Also, there’s no v4.7 jailbreak firmware available, so if you were enjoying basic cart support from your SuperNT, it’s best to hold off: https://support.analogue.co/hc/en-us/articles/360000557452-Super-Nt-Firmware-Update-v4-6 As a side note, while I […]
I joined the My Life in Gaming weekly stream to talk all things MiSTer. We set a new record for viewers on the channel, with almost 550 people tuning in for the FPGA chat at one point.
