Casio PV-1000 Console Core

Unread post by Flandango »

Here is a beta of the Casio PV-1000 console core that I am working on.
Still needs some tweaking and polishing, like the video timing but for the most part, the whole library of games (all 13) load and seem playable.

I am excited trying out this obscurity. What is the core name that should be used for the game directory? Does it require any boot rom?

Great work! Really nice to be able to check this system out finally, I gave the library a quick run through and everything played fine for me without any issues. I did notice a few games had a blue border at the top and bottom, is that how those games are a bit like some SMS games?

Well done doing the NEC D65010G031 sound chip, we didn't have that one yet.

Yeah the blue (or red border as in some other games) are actually on the top and bottom. Mame has them on the side to fit the 4:3 aspect and 256x192 resolution but then I saw videos of the actual console and noticed they were on the top and bottom.
I couldn't find any information on that chip, which actually handles the sound and video so based it on information from Mame, videos and brute force.

Ah nice, thanks for confirming! What is left for you to do beyond adding in the various menu options before you can merge into Main?

As for additional menu items, there really isn't anything, system-wise, that is left. No joystick options, no peripherals not even Ntsc/Pal options. Maybe add back in the usual Wide/Normal screen option.
The biggest thing for me, is cleaning up the code. It's the equivalent of a prototype board with nothing but bodge wire and duct tape.
Once I get it to a state that is not too embarrassing, I will put it in Main.
