Agreed, his addressing doesn't make sense.
Bear in mind (I'm sure you have) your results have to take into account the slapstik.

The onboard testing is amazing, the Arduino isn't fast enough to do anything effective with the T11.
Welcome to bonus stage.

Thanks for confirming my thoughts.  The Arduino does seem to be a bit limited with the T11.

The onboard tests are ok, but it would be great if it could test the palette ram out specifically, which is soldered in

been lurking here for ages,

would it be an interesting idea to port this to the ST  nucleo boards?

they have arduino headers and partial arduino ide support,

but they can run upto 400MHz and have no shortage of ram or flash.

the only difference is the headers, where the MEGA has the double row of pins at the end, the nucleo uses the sides of the board for extra i/o

so a different interface pcb would be needed.

that and it's 3.3v, but 5v tolerant, so it's fine pulling stuff low, but *may* need some pullup resistors.

although it shouldnt because ttl is supposed to consider anything over about 2v as "high"

If you go here:
http://www.arcaderestoration.com/BrowseGames.aspx

I have all the games from MAME there including Memory Maps, ROM Identification, etc...
Can't guarantee it's 100% accurate, as it was parsed from MAME source, but it should be in 99% of the cases. 

It could easily be exported into what ever format you need.

Was looking for Paul's site myself thanks. I've gotten a run of boards made. I had 10 of each made. Smallest order they would run, so I've got 8 spares of each if anyone wants some, just message me. I'm in the states, so whatever shipping is plus a couple bucks to help cover the costs would be fine. You guys seem to have done a lot of work providing all this, just want to say thanks.

This is still one of the main tools on my bench! It's been essential for fixing Asteroids.

Whenever I start repairing a new game I always port it to this project and make it available on my GitHub.

I'm having trouble implementing the defender code. Can I save all the libraries and game files in one directory or do I have to create separate library folders? I was able to run Paul's files but when I try to save the defender files it asks to overwrite files and I'm wondering if there are differences I needed to account for. Also there was some comments on the limited file space on the Arduino.... How about using a touch screen with an SD card? Outside my skill level but maybe an idea?

Try my branch for Atom - has it all integrated

Right - I got made 10 of each Arduino Shield, Standard Header, 68000 Header in rather cool Black

PM me if you're looking for a set and I am happy to part at cost to those that are

Thumbs Up

I've added basic support to the ICT for the main CPU of:
- Punch-Out
- Super Punch-Out
- Arm Wrestling

Files are here:
https://github.com/Phillrb/Arduino-ICT-PVAP

This is currently untested.
