    [Andy] has been working on an SNES Ethernet adapter and he’s finally got it working. Basically, it’s an ATMega644 with a Wiznet adapter connected to the second controller port. The ATMega sends… something, probably not packets… to the SNES where it is decoded with the help of some 65816 assembly on a PowerPak development cartridge. Why is he doing this? To keep track of a kickstarter project, of course.

    Super Mario Kart Snes Review

    Every day im going to review a game, none will be massive reviews as im not a journalist im just a gamer, the reviews will be from the retro days right up to todays games, most of the best games transcend time. If you would like to write reviews of games you play then please post them in our User Submitted Review forum, ill then add a few screenshots etc and post them on DCEmu Games Reviews.

    Today its the turn of Super Mario Kart, this game when it was released just awed the public, no one had seen anything like it, the single player mode was awesome, you had to progress from 50cc Karts up to 150cc Karts.

    The ability to throw shells, go invincible, throw bananas and much more made it a AAA killer game.

    But the real killer mode was the 2 player Battle Mode where you start off with 3 Balloons and you chase each others around trying to burst each others balloons, i used to have daily Battle modes up to 15 wins with a mate the game was that good.

    Even now after countless sequels the original is still very much the best in my eyes and on any system that i try to use Snes emulators on its one of the first i try.

    So if you have never played it, either buy a Snes and the original game, via Virtual Console on Wii or by using a Snes emulator make sure you play one of the best games of all time.

    If i was to give this a score out of a 100 it would be 98/100.

    Heres some screenshots:

    As a product of the 90s I grew up loving the classics that kids today know about from Wikipedia and pop-culture references. Games like Super Bomberman, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country I and III (II was a sellout, come on) are the foundations of my childhood memories. Now, though, as a fourth-year electrical engineering major, I find myself increasingly impressed by the level of technical difficulty embedded in that 16-bit console. I am trying, now, to find a resource that will take me through the technical design of the SNES (memory layout, processor information, cartridge pin layouts/documentation) to get a better understanding of what I naively enjoyed 15 some years ago. I am reaching out to the vast resources available from the minds of the Slashdot community. Any guide/blog series that you know of that walks through some of the technical aspects of the, preferably, SNES (alternatively, NES/Nintendo 64) console would be much appreciated.

    Your morning routine doesn’t include enough old-school gaming. Break the caffeine habit and get your Mario on at the same time with the help of the Super Nincoffee Jr.
    [Luigifreakout123] shares the details of the build in the video clip after the break. He starts by revealing that this is the second version he’s made. The first wasn’t a Jr., but instead used a full-sized Mr. Coffee unit. Neither make coffee, but instead serve as an enclosure for the gaming hardware. The on/off switch and original power cable are used to control the electricity to the console. Openings have been cut in the tops and front for a game cartridge and the two controller ports. A composite video and stereo audio cable comes out the back of the machine next to the power cord.
    Yeah, it’s super simple, but sometimes that all it takes for a project to be a delight like this one is.

    In 1999, TIME's cover warned readers to Beware of Pokemon ('For many kids it's now an addiction: cards, video games, toys, a new movie. Is it bad for them?'). But Pokemon wasn't as easily felled as Lehman or Bear Stearns. Thirteen years later, 16-year-old Manoj Sunny has his eye on a Pokemon world title, having earned the chance to travel to The Big Island with 35 fellow Americans for the 2012 Pokemon Video Game World Championships, which will be held Aug. 10-12. Sunny, who also captains his school's chess team, credits his success to a good memory, intuition, daily practice, the use of an online simulator, and a competitive attitude ('I hate losing. Once I lost, I needed to get better.')"

    cndowning has posted on Ebay his Custom Made Snes Console that unlike other Custom Consoles before it comes with screens built into the controllers, you dont even need to have the console connected to a tv for it to work.

    The SNES-001 Advance is a custom Original Super Nintendo Entertainment System that has been modified to accept two custom controllers with Audio/Video Capability. Using two custom controller cables, the SNES-001 Advance allows the user to play the unit without the need for a TV.
    Run completely off the power of the SNES, the controllers have no batteries to change and also have the option to be used with or without the A/V enabled. In other words, it works as a regular controller if you'd like as well as being able to use the TV and both controllers all at the same time.
    The controller are custom made from scratch, using a Vacuum Formed case mold for the housing and was hand assembled from the cutting of the screen and button holes to the mounting of all the components within. This is a custom product that was not made in a factory or by engineers and was designed as a Collectors Item. The system and controllers are not designed to take abuse! (See Warranty info below)
    Unit comes encased in a Custom Made Pine Enclosure lined with black felt, a Lexan plastic covering and is LED lit.
    Items included in this auction:
    1 Original Modded SNES-001 Unit, NTSC
    1 Set of A/V Cables and 1 Power Supply
    1 Power Supply for LED Box
    2 Custom A/V Controllers
    2 Custom A/V Controller Cables
    1 Pine LED lit Storage Case
    1 Instruction Manual

    The entire unit comes with a 30-day craftsmanship Warranty. The fine details are covered in the manual but basically for the first 30 days after the sale day, if there is a malfunction with the unit that occurs under "Normal Playing Conditions" i.e. a controller breaks or component stops working, it may be sent back for repair free of charge, excluding return shipping to the seller. Item will however be shipped back for free.
    "Normal Playing Conditions" exclude abuse, neglect or intentional damage. Swinging the controller around by the cord, squeezing in rage or spilling water or beer will not be covered by the warranty. Having put the units together myself, I know what kind of damage to expect from "Normal Playing Conditions" if any. Though I don't think there would be an issue either way, it's something I have state up front. Any kind of damage can be retuned for repair for a fee dependent on the extent of the damage. I am very reasonable though and will do what I can to make things right should something go wrong.
    Bottom line, be gentle as the controllers are not indestructible like original hardware.

    Heres a Video of it in action:

    Twenty years ago, [Downing] would fight with his siblings over who got to watch TV. Obviously, this gave him the idea of putting a television inside his Super Nintendo controller, but at he tender age of 12, [Downing] had neither the experience nor skills to make that happen. Now that he’s older, and much less impressed by the Sega Nomad, [Downing] made his dream a reality.
    Reading over [Downing]‘s madebybacteria forum thread, he began the build by adding two controller ports and painting the system a classic Famicom red and white. The prominent feature of [Downing]‘s design – a display in each controller – are connected to the console through a second pair of SNES controller ports. Internally, the video signal generated by the SNES is broken out to each controller; the controller displays are just a small mirrored version of whats sent to the TV.
    Like [Downing]‘s previous Genesis portable, the SNES-001 is a master work of Bondo and vacuum forming. After the break you can see a few demos of what this console mod can do.
