  1. OK, well I got the new Papilio Loader 2.6 but still no luck. I flashed the new firmware and it said that it went through the Program/Verify cycle like you said, but the result is the same, with the panel displaying a solid bar. I also tried rewriting the Papilio LX9 Quickstart bit file to the FPGA, and when it does that the panel stays blinking after it's done. I note that when it's writing the Quickstart .bit to the FPGA, it seems to only have a programming step and there's no verify phase, but it appears to be done with the process because "Do these operations is no longer grayed out in the top menu." So I don't know if that could be the problem. Maybe my unit is faulty. Justin.
  2. I just got my Retrocade and still haven't been able to get it to work. I flashed the firmware using the Papilio Loader and it gets down to DONE =0, then a series of solid bars appears on the panel and there's no preset names/etc. I have it plugged into a MIDI keyboard and out to Ableton, with no sound coming out. I'm running a 2011 Macbook Pro. Tried it with Windows on Bootcamp and in OSX with the the beta version of the OSX loader. Both times got the same result. Can't seem to make a connection with the Dashboard either. I think I might have shifted the USB cable when it was installing the Plug and Play drivers earlier but I unplugged it and plugged it back in and the drivers installed correctly. Other than that I'm not sure what else I could have done wrong. As I mentioned in another post, I overwrote the FPGA by accident. But then I rewrote it with the quick start bit file for the Papilio LX9. Any advice would help because I'm pretty stuck here. J

    Accidentally overwrote FPGA when installing.

    Hey thanks. I'll try that when I get home from work. Should be this one, correct?

    RetroCade Professional Case

    You guys mention a lot of substantive issues about the case, but I think style is also important. It should have a subtle homage to the C64 or the Nintendo. Like two tones of grey and white plastic with little vents. Will give it quite a bit more commercial appeal. Maybe source the parts from old dysfunctional C64s.
  5. OK, so I was eager to dive in to this business so in my typical fashion, I did so without knowing really what I was doing. I tried running the loader first and I had assumed it was done because nothing was happening but I didn't look to see that it was "Programming:" I'm not a programmer or a hacker so I'm not used to this sort of prompt. Anyways long story short, I thought that I had flashed it correctly and I didn't know why the unit wasn't working, so I thought maybe I had selected the wrong thing. So I selected FPGA and wrote to that. There was an error and a crash. I guess I just wrote over the hardware profile (simulating hardware. That's how it works right?) and now I need a link to that file so I can load it back on and then I think I'll be solid. I figured out how to do the other thing from reading the forums (switching to expert mode and enabling write, verify, etc.) Thanks, Justin
