sure, but in the long run we are all dead.
he is talking about gsu support literally since years.

true. I really appreciate Ikari and his dedication to his project, but we have to face the facts, he's a father of 2(?) babies, has a day job like all the rest of us and very little time to program the SD2nes (no time for gaming?). On top of that, SA1 and GSU1 are way down at the bottom of his to do list, aside from fixing bugs and things that break down with each release or with every new feature, so at this rate he will work on it in 2030.

I say let's all help Ikari complete the SD2snes instead of just waiting around for him to do everything.

i go with this.
he really would be the last one who would reject a working gsu commit on github. ^^

the fgpa snes guy mentioned he'd be willing to give it a shot once he's done with his own project, and it looks like he is almost done. Maybe we can talk to him about it?

Of course he'd have to reverse engineer the hell out of these chips, but he's already done the rest of the snes hardware, so we know this is a feasible task for him.

That fellow seems a bit unrealistic in what money he believes is out there for crowdfunding it.

at least ikari is planning to start working on these chips himself arround 1.10/2.0

What is that now??

he expects to make around 200k with his snes fpga code, but we are only talking about a couple of chips, not an entire videogame system. I'm sure there's a way we can make it worth his while.

I'm kind of confused, didn't KevTris already code the SNES into his FPGA work?

there's no indication he's even started with that.

to be honest I'd rather see Kevtris do something along the lines of a Hi-Def SNES. that would be sweet,

Someone else is currently working on an FPGA based SNES called VeriSNES. Here's the Youtube channel:

That likely to be a very good FPGA-based SNES emulator. Unfortunately not SNES.

thats the same guy I've been talking about. He's only making the code, he's not interested in making an actual snes.

He need about tree fiddy.  But the important thing is that when Super FX and such support is ready, it's an easy software upgrade and no need to buy new hardware for it right?
