||The USA distribution of the PIC doesn't exist anymore. But you can still get it from me for a self-cost price.
||A USA distibutor is offering pre-burned PIC-Chips with the lsdjmc2 software on it now. Check Gameboymall.
||The new Software is tested and some bugs are removed. The latest version is V1.4 now. The documentation will also be updated soon.
||A new software update is available. Actually still in the beta phase, but it is able to syncronize with Nanoloop2 now. Also some user-requests are included.
||The LSDJMC2 is featured in the german gaming magazine GEE-Mag.
||The first interfaces are already shipped. Here and here are two pictures of ready produces ones.
||The production just started. See here.
||I updated the Schematics and the part-list a bit. I removed the connection from pin 4 to 6 at the Gambeboy-link port.
Some link cables doesn't have Pin 4 there at all and others reported problems with that.
I also removed R14 from the partlist as we don't need it anymore with the newer versions.
||Nanoloop update! Use the new hexfile please.
||Bugfix for Version 1.1. Use the new hexfile please.
||Final update for the schematics. I added a IC for more circuit stability.
I recommend to use this chip now. As a additional feature it it possible to syncronize 2 gameboys with one converter!
||New update for the LSDJMC2.
Now it supports the Plus-Minus function which allows you to sync your gear whenever you like.
I am also starting to make some interfaces for you. Sign in on the wait list if you think about to order one!!
||No support for the next 4 weeks as i am on vacation.
Maybe ask on the lsdj-mc2 group if you got a question.
Some people built the interface already and i'm sure they will help you. :-)
||As i just moved and got still alot work to do, the project is sleeping for a short while. But don't fear about to build the actual version. I added 2 tutorials about how to build it, so you can see it is already working good!
||Removed a bug and uploaded the new software and also the documentation now.
||Due to a bug i removed all files till i fixed it!
||A new PLUS / MINUS feature will be included.
||Partlist changed. Make sure that you use a 20 Mhz PIC.
||Added a project for a PIC Programmer, which you could need to burn the PIC 16F628.
||Released all schematics and software for Version 1.0 beta! So you can start to build the interface.
||Added a polyphonic mode to play 2 notes at the same time.
||The betatest phase is just starting.
||Finally the Project arrived Beta-Test status. Thanks to some help from Gwem and Thorsten Klose i could fix all difficulties.
I also decided to release the schematics and the binary, so you can built it at home yourself. And of course for those, who don't got electronic skills, i will also produce those interfaces.
||Nearly done with the software. I got to change the hardware a bit, so i think i can test it this weekend.
||Started to port the software to the new CPU.
||Due to some technical problems, i will change some general things in the interface.
So the processor will be changed to a better ( and alot cheaper ) one. Also the processor speed will be increased to 20 Mhz.
I think about to use a learn mode for the Midi-channel.
Hopefully the new CPUs will arrive next week, so i can go on with the developement.
||I have added the timetable to inform you as the project progresses.
||Made previous versions with only Midi-Sync and Notes, which worked well with different gears.
Lo-Bat has already received a "sync only" version and is using it successfully. I just need to fix one little bug i found in the sync function. Now you can also change the latency of the synchronize function.
I also fixed some other bugs in the note section, because i had some problems with different Master-Keyboards. A bigger problem is left with using the
Oxygen8 Masterkeyboard. For some reason it's not working well with the direct Midi-Out Port. The usb Midi-Out Port is working well and works fine with sequencers etc.
So i wrote a complete new Midi-In code and will test in the next few days ( 27.10.2003 ).
The main hardware is ready and may only need one small change in processor speed.
