    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    I would say sniffing the serial line between the Naomi and the card printer is still the best (and maybe only) way to go

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    I get it and I understand from a purists perspective it sucks, but it's out there and it works - as the saying goes 'in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king' So huge thanks again to @winteriscoming, @saturnnights and everyone else involved, my noddy modifications and card printing...

    Mounts for installing LG 32MP58HQ into Vewlix F (maybe others)

    Just spotted this post after building a mount for my Vewlix F - I used 18mm MDF board with a TV mount on the front, the spacing is pretty much perfect so I haven't attached the metal surround to the board, it's just held on by the side plastics but this looks a way better solution. The original...

    Type X3 video card and CPU upgrade

    Thanks very much to everyone involved in getting this new version of firmware for us to use :thumbsup: One thing I noticed afterwards is a very slow boot time, this is due to the Intel Management Engine and the secondary network interface, both can be safely disabled in Device Manager. I...

    I've finished F-Zero AX, I've cleaned up and standardised the card images as much as I can and uploaded them here if anyone needs them: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RKzXQ4wco3sweSMrUWta7SbxYthjTDV6/view?usp=sharing

    Got them, they are perfect! thanks so much again for scanning those in for me, the F-Zero code is all done now, I'll release it along with Mario Kart which I'll start this week

    96dpi according to Windows, the files attached here are only 200KB each, did they get resized when attached?

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    Wow! I honestly didn't realise there were so many! many thanks for scanning them in, it's great to see them all together like that - unfortunately ... I need them at a higher res :unsure: - the other cards I have are all around 600x1000 pixels each to capture all of the card detail and make the...

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    That would be brilliant, thanks very much, I'd be grateful for any that you have, the aim is to get a selection so a random card is offered when purchasing in the game.

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    I've got my first test print using real game data, doesn't look too bad, just need get some higher res scans as this one is ripped from a Japanese auction site with the original print data photoshopped out!

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    After a week of head scratching I'm starting to get somewhere, I've got the main emulator script to process and export the font packet data into a csv file, that then act as a real time reference as to which icon is currently in which font slot. If more font information appears later on, the...

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    I've started work on F-Zero AX and wow, what a game! not played it much before and it plays really well. I've managed to extract the card icons from the game code so far and done a bit of work on the workflow, it'll be more of a challenge than the ID games as the font icons don't all load up...

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    Turns out adding NFC into the workflow caused all sorts of issues around renewals and upgrades but all working OK now based on my testing. If a card is inserted using a physical NFC card, the card data is always saved back, including the new copy of the upgraded/renewed card. A copy is also...

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    Thanks very much, I may take you up on that, have some feelers out already I'd be happy to help with any testing you need doing, drop me a PM when you're ready Quick update on NFC progress, my card write code worked fine but I had to rewrite the card reading process from scratch as I'd...

    Web NFC via Chrome looks like it might work, it supports writing and reading NFC via NDEF, the only caveat being you need to be using SSL to drive it from the netbooter web frontend. That would be super slick though, only issue is certificate issuing and updates from a trusted public CA.

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    I picked up a cheap NFC card reader/writer last week along with some NTAG215 cards for testing integration with the card emulator, I was hoping to use nfcpy/pynfc but I found out afterwards that the reader I bought was specifically listed as not recommended! It's an ACR122U which is probably the...

    NAOMI 2/Chihiro/Triforce Card Reader Emulator (Initial D3/WMMT/Mario Kart/F-ZERO AX)

    I agree but I'm afraid my programming skills are not up to that! I've updated the ID script to handle the classic start up mode and the on demand drop folder method when a filename is not provided, the id_card_data scripts referred to are generating my php card data based on the game type. I...
