7/25/2004 - New Sega Genesis Tool
With this tool, BasiRomEgaHaXorz, you can add introductions to Sega Genesis roms compiled from BASIC (BasiEgaXorz). Notes: Roms that are >2mb cannot be used because sega cd word ram occupies the $200000 region. Thanks to Tom Maniero for the idear =). Download Here

4/11/2004 - Easter = More updates
What'd be a better time to release an update than on Easter day :)? To celebrate the bunnies of the world, I decided to release BasiEgaXorz v0.11 today =D. One of the biggest highlight of this update is the speed increase, more than 100 times. I didn't have time to include BigSprite and BigTile routines, maybe they'll just be in an slibrary instead =). v0.11 here

Added a mode sheet for the 6847 in ee. Also added the components to the custom library. I'll be adding a test schematic for the MC6845 soon. Also added a whole lot of eproms to the components library, 2708 to 27512.

More updates to the ee section. Added my stuff for driving video through the MC6847.

1/27/2004 - ATA HD Interface Added
Added a simple 8 bit interface to the ee section. The interface doesn't require any gates or buffers, so data read/writes are limited to 8 bits on a 16 bit bus. Also added the IDE connector to the custom component library, and the ATA specs.

1/26/2004 - Finally an Update to the Elecy Section
Added some stuff that isn't very common on the net (at least for me) - a DRAM interfacing and reference. Decided to start a section today when I found a very easy circuit in a Z80 book to strap DRAM on.

Some changes on the site too, if you go into the pictures section, you may notice the pics look like fudge. I resized+compressed them heavily, so each pic is now about 20k. This is good for the 56k'ers =). Took some more pictures of the "upgraded" Sega Genesis with the ISA slot.
