Gamegear dev kit
Post Posted: Sun Jan 29, 2006 1:51 am
I'm the high bidder so far on this ebay auction:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8254003328
If I do win it, is it likely that there's anything useful to this community there? I'm more than happy to send off whatever in the name of the cause if it'll help.

Let me know if there's anything valuable.

I was on bidder list as well. :)

I think the more interesting community wise would be the data on disks.
Maybe an early GG board such at this could also be useful in understanding some hardware details as well, not sure.
Z80 emulator if used correctly could be useful to get insight on some timing issue (if any) but one has to be courageous to trace using this.

PS: I moved your thread, had nothing to do in "Music" forum.

Apologies for the incorrect forum placement, I figured it was from a music developer so it would fit more into that section.

I doubt I'll end up as the final bidder now, though - I noticed it's been posted on the Assembler boards, and the people there have a tendency to be pretty flush with cash (well beyond my means, anyway)... hopefully whoever wins will be generous.

I'm pretty sure the disk contents are just the PC drivers/software for the Z80 emulator. (notice 'ZAX' on the disk as well as the emu and ISA cards). The emulator itself isn't really Sega specific, I've seen these sold elsewhere.

I'd guess the Z80 (or Z80 ICE) goes in that unpopulated 40-pin socket next to the SMS cartridge slot.

Also handy for development, I think it would be nice to give to Martin for working on GGT. :)

Seems like smspower was the top bidder - congrats to Bock and the smspower team, glad to see it go to a good home :)

Where is the paypal donation link? It doesn't appear to feature on the front page. I'm sure I stuck a few quid in via paypal before...

Byte-size Sound did the sound on Arcade Classics on the GG.

From their website:
Byte Size Sound wrote
· Sega Game Gear- Arcade Classics, Taz in Escape from Mars, RBI Baseball '94, Beavis & Butthead, PGA Golf European Edition, Barbie Supermodel, PGA Golf 3, Bonkers: Wax Up!, Payne Stewart Pro Golf, PGA Tour 96

...several of which are unknown/unreleased/got renamed/are mistakes, but they're certainly all late GG games (1994+).

Ouch thats $375 australian. Theres a weeks wages well spent. This little gem should hopefully be of some use to SMSPower!.

Maxim, go easy on Bock, he'll still be able to get food, he may just have to live off take away for a while, at least he will still be eating (just kidding)

Have fun with your new toy/device

Jacko
