It also has some intermitent problems, but in this video everything is apparently working.

Arcade Build

I have been working on my next arcade build. This time using a NEO-GEO as base, since I can then swap cartridges or use a multigame cartridge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0jnS-UUoAI Real hardware, is ALWAYS better then Emulation :D Obviously one of the first cartridges to try, at least for me, ...

Re: Scrolling the attribute memory sideways

... On the upside, though, moving one cell left or right inside the attributes area only requires that you increment/decrement the low byte of the address, which is 2 T states quicker than incrementing/decrementing a register pair. This may not seem like much, but it adds up quickly over the span o...

Searching for " Chaos " or " chaos " gives a different result list. As soon as I have some extra free time, I'll take a look a find the reason for it. I already have ...

This way the intended results would appear first, but if someone makes a mistake (such as the cadáv vs cadàv one)...

Re: Predictive Search

I searched for "Electra" and it finds it, but searching for "electra" fails to find it, curious! Maybe I missed something. Both "Electra" and "electra" provide the same results in searching. But they show different results in autocomplete. Are you referring to the fact, that current quick search qu...

Re: Predictive Search

If table data does not contain Upper case characters, we can never match them as Upper case characters. However, if table data contains Upper case characters, then we can match or ignore them, depending on the collation being used. I understood your point. I just happen to disagree with you :) That...
