[00:09:08] <Malignant_Manor> Have you had any chance to work on Nuvie lately?
[00:10:50] <Yuv422> hey Malignant_Manor
[00:11:09] <Yuv422> no :( I've been helping out with another project over the last couple of weeks
[00:11:14] <Yuv422> dgen.sf.net
[00:11:35] <Yuv422> a sega megadrive/genesis emulator
[00:11:55] <Yuv422> I'm planning to get back into nuvie work shortly though
[00:15:57] <Malignant_Manor> Is this so you can play the games on your portable at full speed?
[00:17:41] <Yuv422> I'm converting a physical megadrive into an emulator using a raspberry pi computer
[00:17:58] <Yuv422> and an arduino to interface with the original sega controllers
[00:18:25] <Yuv422> but the raspberry pi computer was a bit underpowered to run the emulator with a c cpu core
[00:18:38] <Yuv422> so I merged in some opensource arm cores
[00:18:53] <Yuv422> cyclone for the 68000 cpu
[00:19:02] <Yuv422> and drz80 for the z80 cpu
[00:19:31] <Yuv422> now it runs at about 55 fps at the raspberry pi's factory clock speed of 700Mhz
[00:20:59] <Yuv422> I've got to go now
[00:21:28] <Yuv422> hopefully I'll get back into the nuvie dev in a couple of days
[00:21:30] <Yuv422> cya
[00:21:35] <Malignant_Manor> bye
