  1. Hello there! I'm just starting with my Papilio 2.04 500K and Arcade Mega Wing. I managed to build and merge the Puckman game to a.bit file. It works A1 when I program it into the FPGA with Papilio Loader v2.4. (Written 2.1 at the top but...) My issue is when I program it to SPI Flash. It gives no error but it just dies there after programmation. Any idea? Thanks!

  2. Is a manipulation of any sort could cause this bug? What io are involved in this process?
  3. I received the new board today. Yup, that did the trick! It now works! I don't know what is the issue with the other one. I'll ship the old one back tomorrow. Hope you'll find what's wrong. I want to thank everyone involved in this case! Cheers! Nitz.
  4. Thanks bud! Unfortunately, same exact thing; temporary works but permanent not. I cleaned the board and inspected it. No luck. Is it normal that the joystick cannot go up/down in mr.Do? It works properly in pacman. Cheers!
  5. Telecommunications = overtime In what domain? I'm in networking infrastructure architecture.
  6. Canada. I'm working in telecom so i know what you mean.
  7. No rush. Thank you for your support! Just curious, where are you located?
  8. BTW, I just tried with my Logic Start and the "Three weeks in paradise" demo. Same thing.
  9. Same thing. Hardware?
  10. Thanks for your fast answers guys! After I sucessfully flash the SPI, it just hangs. VGA goes out of sync. I tried to unplug everything and replug. Same thing. If I do the same to FPGA, packman starts. Is my board defective in some way? B.T.W., I read through how the SPI pushes the .bit file to FPGA at startup. Clever. If you need me to probe something, just ask, I'm well equipped. Thanks!
