james1095 Posted October 20, 2017 Report Share Posted October 20, 2017 I've been tinkering away, working on implementing the bronze age Atari arcade game Super Breakout in VHDL. Just thought I'd show off the playfield generation subsystem which I've successfully got displaying random data I loaded in the video RAM for testing purposes. What this shows is that the video sync circuitry, playfield generator and video RAM are all working properly, next step is to add the CPU and IO subsystems. In hopes of inspiring others to implement other games, I've shared the tested working VHDL for the sync and playfield circuitry, these are used in quite a few games of that era with only minor changes needed from game to game. I've been using an Altera FPGA for development but this code should be platform agnostic, just use romgen to create ROM images. I've got a version of the sync PROM written as combinatorial logic that I'll share once I verify that the result is identical. playfield.vhd sync.vhd Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
