Re: Building "Basic Engine" boards - any interest?

I'd have to refer you to my answer in the ODROID thread! It does look kinda cool though. I've not heard of those RAM/video generator thingys before. I started on a BASIC interpreter for the Bitbox (https://github.com/makapuf/bitbox) but as usual haven't done much with it. The ESP8266 is more powerfu...

Re: ODROID DIY handheld

Sounds cool but I don't think I have space in my brain for yet another hardware platform at the moment.
I'm already playing with loads of old games systems, modern minimal devices, hardware I'm in the process of building myself, etc. etc.

Re: Mini Competition #4 -Do it

I've been meaning to write a game for the SAM Coupé. Because there aren't enough of those. Somehow I never get round to it though, or anything at all.
