NOXROM Cartridge

For experts to discuss very technical stuff and newbies to ask why the Spectrum they bought off ebay doesn't work.

NOXROM Cartridge

Post by RMartins » Thu Dec 21, 2017 7:49 pm

As some of you might know/remember, I have been developing my NOXROM cartridge.

After a few iterations, I have a working prototype, some firmware and some software adapted to work with it.
Meanwhile during this last year I did a presentation of it to a few coworkers, in a technology sharing session at work.

From this, sparked the idea of presenting this to a broader/wider set of people, and in a twist of fate, a friend proposed to submit it as a talk to FOSDEM (Open Source Conference), which got it's first RetroComputing DevRoom for 2018.

So, I submitted it for appreciation, and "I got in". (kudos to anyone who recognizes this movie quote)

So here is my talk, along with some videos of a game (R-Type) that as been converted to not only run from NOXROM cartridge, but also loads all levels seamlessly from it.

Finaly, I would suggest you all to come to FOSDEM, since it's a very nice conference, with great subject matter, in several areas and the entrance is free.

As far as I'm aware, all talks are saved in video for posterity.

Just finished my talk, a while ago, and there was live streaming of it.
I hope some of you guys watched it.

If not, the video downloads will probably be available, in a few days

P.S.
Thank you Bob :)

Thanks for posting. I understood some of it but the majority went over my head :) Good on Bob Pape for assisting with the modifications needed to R-Type.

Thanks for posting the link, it's good to see you 'in the flesh' as it were.

It looked like the talk went very well, most of the hardware stuff was way over my head also but at least I understood the part about R-Type :D

Due to several organisational/setup issues, the hardware was not visible in the video.

But here is a picture from a tweet of someone in the audience, that shows the hardware working.

If you noticed, the video, was not correctly framed, so the top part of every presentation in that room, has the top part clipped unfortunately.
