They would be awesome, but if only Battle Garegga makes it, I'll be happy :)

Yeah me too, tbh. Although I do personally rate armed police Batrider above that (I know, burn the heretic :P ).

I wonder if the Raizing boards need anything more/different to be programmed inside a Toaplan v2 core, compared to the "native" (and older) Toaplan's own games.

[Edit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Edu8-D1jAY I'm pasting that here for my redemption (Battle Garegga has one of the greatest soundtracks in the history of video games)

We're probably a long way off of the realization of this dream yet... 🥺

Outzone! :D

Possibility of R-Type Leo is exciting as well. It's probably my favorite R-Type.

I very much doubt it with the DE-10 :( SH3 games are what-- 7-8 lol 10-15 years old?

But hey, the 68K core is as of today 99% complete, and I can personally attest to that! :mrgreen:

Onto Toaplan!

...so, I was checking SH3 board specs, and this is what system16.com has to say about them

CV1000B:

Code: Select all

CPU : Hitachi SH-3 CPU, 133 Mhz Clock
Sound Chip : Yamaha YMZ770C-F
Other Chips (Based on Ibara) : Altera Cyclone EP1C12F324C8 FPGA (i think used as Video-DSP and SD-RAM Controller), 
K9F1G08U0A 128M x 8 Bit NAND Flash Memory, 
1x MX29LV160BBTC-90 Flash Memory and 2x MX29LV320ABTC-90 Flash ICs (space for up to 2 more Flash ICs is not used), 
1xMT48LC2M32B2-6 SDRAM and 2x MT46V16M16. 
LA4708 Audio amplifier.
CV1000D:

Code: Select all

The CV1000-D is a direct upgrade of the Cave CV1000B board, the main differences seem to be:
Chip U1 : IS42S32400D 128Mb SDRAM @ 166mhz (standard SH3 has MT48LC2M32 64Mb SDRAM)
Chip U4 : 32Mbit Spansion S29JL032H (standard SH3 has a 16Mbit Spansion S29AL016D.
No Lithium Battery
Given recent findings regarding SDRAM limitations, I very much doubt these would be possible to tackle. However the other day, Jotego was gauging interest in the PGM system, which is 68000 based, and this could very well mean that the likes of DOJ, Ketsui🤩 and EspGaluda are within our grasp

I would imagine that the IGS PGM would be a really popular choice although I don't think it's a particularly well known system, it has a decent selection of games for people too.
Unlike the other games on the system the Cave titles were different as they weren't simple MVS style cartridges but existed as custom PGM boards so I'm not sure how different to the standard cartridge system those games actually are. Mind you, it is possible to have the Cave games converted ono donor carts so they hopefully aren't that different from the main library.

Mine doesn't work.

I've 32MB MiSTer. I've just installed with update script. I can see four different DoDonPachi versions, but all of them show a screen full of different colors and then... nothing. Core menu button doesn't work and I need to reset.

Only one time I've ran japanese version, but since that time, the game doesn't work anymore.

¿Any ideas?

Thank you

Congrats on releasing the core!

What other games run on similar hardware? I see on system16 that Power Instinct is also listed on the same page, but it seems to be a board variant?

I guess 32MB won't make it, it just crashes MISTer.

For anybody with SDRAM problems: the public version can be switched to work with DDR RAM.

Copying from the release notes:

Code: Select all

Added menu option to switch between SDRAM and DDR3 memory. 
SDRAM will give you the most consistent performance, so this is for anyone having SDRAM problems
(crashes, glitches, sound issues, etc.)

It also defaults to DDR3 if you don't even have a SDRAM module installed in your MiSTer. 
This way everyone still gets to play!
The option is under -> Advanced in the core menu (along with a setting to have it forced to run @60Hz -- if your screen can't wake @ the original 57.5)

My 32MB is a Winbond. Initially I had problems with some Jotego arcades but when he updated his memory controller they all started to work.
Which 32MB are you using?

As it crashes MISTer I cannot go into the OSD to switch. I suppose I could edit the config file related to the core. Does anyone has any idea?
It looks like config files are not text files. Could someone post a config file with the core switched to DDR?
