Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : CHAMELEON 64 MINIMIG CORE UPDATE
   posted by Darrin on 17-Feb-2013 21:57:06 (2684 reads)
I thought this excellent news was worth sharing.

Alastair Robinson has announced that he has released an updated Minimig core for the Chameleon 64 which allows users to use the actual C64 joystick ports (up until now you either used an IR CDTV controller or the docking port) and hopefully the keyboard in the near future (as opposed to a PS2 keyboard plugged into the Chameleon):

With massive thanks to Peter Wendrich for the chameleon_io component, which allows FPGA designs to read the C64 keyboard and joystick, I've just made a new release of the Minimig core available:

The keyboard doesn't do anything yet, but the C64 joystick ports can now be used to play Amiga games.

(Note that there may be some occasional SD card access bugs in this version - I still have to do some more testing and verification.)

All the best

Doh! Thanks, I've fixed it.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

This looks like an interesting project. I didnt know there was a way to connect my C64 to a VGA monitor.

Good read. Brings to mind another firmware variant that as I recall, supported 50MB of chip RAM. I think it was a minimig core modified by Yaqube and I saw some screen shots. Not sure how stable it was though.

@ Itix. You can use the standard C64 video output too, but I've been using the VGA port on the cartridge since I got it.

@ Ferrels:

I haven't updated my cores (C64 and Minimig) for a while. I need to catch up a bit on the new features. The updates come so fast that it is hard to keep up with them.
