+-^CrossBow^- Posted January 4 Share Posted January 4 Evie has done it again! She announced this morning that her new 7800 adapter is now available for pre-order with use with the BackBit Pro multi system flash cartridge. It includes an addition CPU for pokey emulation including RNG. I will summarize what Evie told me in her forums about the specifics when I asked regarding max game rom size support and the Pokey having RNG in it. "Regarding 7800, up to 1MB with some restrictions. The main limitation is that RAM must be present in every bank due to extremely tight timing and the inability to divide up the memory map of individual banks. So if you have RAM it could reduce the total ROM size by 8x the RAM size, depending on how the RAM is laid out. There is an extra chip to support the POKEY emulation. Random number generation is included. Really the main limitation is the processing power of blitter mapped graphics from the cart." I've got my pre-order in as I'm always excited for additional options that help support the hobby! 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
