I gotta say I'm excited to get my hands on this new selector. I'd like to design a case for it once it's done.

for years I've wanted an excuse to retire the cases for the current Arduino based selector.
I have the pcb ordered and should have it soon to start testing
My STV multi cart is on its way too

Why such a big pcb? And you're using both mcu AND a Pi? It seems like a lot of overkill

I got busy this week and couldn’t work on more icons. But I’ll get you some more soon.

Yea I could have used the Pi but I like working with the atmega
Using the atmega allows me to load the last game right away without waiting for the Pi to startup

oh, earlier I thought you said this was going to be built on a Pi Zero, I'm glad you're going with a Mega instead.

Pi zero will still be used for web page access
My whole goal is not to have to get into the cabinet

a whole pizero seems a bit overkill at that point, IMO. Maybe you could have an ESP8266 module handle that? it's more than capable of a simple captive web page, and I bet you could feed it the bitmaps over serial if required, maybe from a separate i2c flash rom if required/more convenient

it's also like, 1usd vs 10-20usd and a whole linux environment.

Though at this point that would all require a significant redesign. Just my 2c.

Got the STV multi cart installed and wired to audio and reset on the motherboard - that took a bit of time
Hooked up the STV multi selector and tested it out

Sorry for crappy video - iphone 8 camera
Here is a demo

Oooooh, now I see. You want the deluxe experience. Yeah, you can't get that from an ESP8266 lol

Great! Thanks @nem I’ll update the previous post to keep track.
I’m working on the Cotton’s right now, since I made the logo for Cotton 1 on the Sega 16b. I can just update that logo for 2 and boomerang.

Columns 97

Is there any place where I can find screengrabs of title screens in original resolution uncompressed or do I need to start launching Mame?

System16 often has them as does the launch oz website. Lunchbox and hyperspin actually often have high res logo only images too. Beyond that. I don't know if any other better resources.
