You are of the small mind, aren't you? 1chip motherboards are running the SNES functions at a circuit level and their only intention is to combine video output functions. All FPGA implementations are interpreting each and every function; aka emulation. While it's not software based emulation where it just throws all functions at the CPU and hopes for the best, hardware emulation running on FPGA implementation attempts to operate as accurately as it can to the processor and various chips. Not the real thing, but it's damn close. Analogue's marketing is bait for retards who don't know any better.

>> No.6125270

I'm not sure, but it's probably actually based on the original chip designs, just with smaller transistors and everything combined into one chip. That still counts as real hardware, since it works the same on the circuit level.

This FPGA crap is completely different and I don't see how you can claim it works like real hardware when it doesn't.

the whole cycle accurate fpga craze is just a marketing gimmick from people who stand to make a profit by misrepresenting their product. think about it, the specialized circuits in a snes for example were created by a whole team of engineers, you think some autismo can recreate it perfectly in his bedroom in his spare time? from scratch? the answer is no.

>> No.6125314 [DELETED] 

The real key damning fact is that most FPGA cores - all the "mainstream console" cores are based off existing cycle accurate software emulators.

It doesn't really matter. Cycle accurate emulation is the goal no matter what you call it and fpgas are able to do it more efficiently, nothing which illustrates it more than a small battery powered form factor - but when it comes to marketing, analogue's target demo believes "emulation baaaaad" so they're stuck in a spot.

But fuck 'em for not releasing all cores on all platforms. I'ma tell the hipsters they're being lied to until I get proper core support.

>> No.6125315

You don't even know what the fuck FPGA means, do you? Just because it runs on a FPGA instead of a CPU doesn't mean it's not essentially emulation. Unless it's switched like the original chips it's no better than a software emulator. Running it on a FPGA is just an optimization, it's not different qualitatively.

>> No.6125357

I did, actually. But even so, why believe them after they've been caught lying more than once? You can't verify this shit at all. I mean, it's not even important if it works exactly like the original as long as the result is the same, but saying it works like the original when it doesn't (and prior FPGA clones have been proven not to) is just straight up lying or believing lies.

>> No.6125416

Dude, stop, emulation has nothing to do with "throwing functions" at the CPU, except when talking about high-level emulation in later-gen consoles like N64. Emulators operate on individual cpu instructions of the target hardware and change the emulated registers/RAM in whichever way the original CPU would. Some even divide the instructions into more steps if they want to be more accurate. The same goes for graphics, sound and other subsystems.

How those changes from one instruction to the next are computed differs from implementation to implementation and is largely irrelevant as long as the result is accurate in result and timing, but if it's implemented differently than the original chip it's not like original hardware.

Instead they will just use a shit 480p LCD screen and upscale shit and have it look garbage.

Yeah maybe I'll pick up a Vita if I want something for portable emulation. That thing has a wonderful D-Pad anyway.
But it's a shame Nintendo is retarded and didn't turn the Nintendo Switch Online service into a Netflix-esque library of their entire back catalogue because that would have saved me the trouble.

If the screen is 3.5", how big would that make the GBA screen size? Anything smaller than the micro's screen would probably be too small really

I've seen some people that do online streaming express interest in this, if that's your thing, this could be a good device to capture footage from.

Putting aside software emulation. If you want to capture video from a Gameboy, using the Super Gameboy plugged into a SNES is the go to option. For Gameboy Advance there's the Gameboy Player for the Gamecube, but I heard that the video quality on that is not great.

>> No.6143853

I want one, but because it's not cheap I will wait for some of those in-depth video reviews first. I am seeing alot of people say that this product will be shit, what's the basis of that opinion?

This is the first Analogue product to have a screen and to have buttons, it's those features that I would really like someone to weigh in on critically in a review. A lot of the retro controllers being released recently have had issues, how are the buttons are this thing going measure up? Will the button layout feel right for all systems? The think the high resolution for the screen was chosen to allow for integer scaling on all the resolutions from the various hand held systems this thing is going to support. If they get that right, and the screen provides a crystal clear picture, that's going to be pretty sweet.

On the other Analogue products you could play around with different settings, for example you can increase the sprite limit which would help flickering in some games, I could see that improving things in some Game Boy games.

Also known as emulation.

>> No.6149339

No emulation is translating the instructions for one cpu architecture to another. If there's no translation happening it's not emulation. It's just running natively. I think retards on this site don't even know how fpgas work. It's rearranging the transistors on the chip to recreate the original hardware. It's exactly the same as an ASIC chip. The only difference is that they are pre-burned with the core. It's no different than any other clone console. The is a real Z80 in the fpga.

>> No.6151413

thats still emulation, the hardware is mimicking (EMULATION) the FPGA is emulating the function of the original chip. Emulation has nothing to do with software or programming, an aftermarket car part is emulating the original even if the output is 1:1 and its an exact recreation its still copying it, FPGAs arent even that close to that. Which also means clones are emulation as well.

>> No.6151428

I would buy this, I wish it was software emulation. Then I could overclock and get updates. Instead it's shitty hardware emulation that will have small glitches which can't be fixed.

>> No.6151462

Maybe "won't fix" but of course they CAN fix it. They might not because profit margins, but they CAN. The whole point of FPGA is replacing the entire logic from a binary file.

>> No.6151470

Honestly, a handheld device is where FPGA meme makes the most sense. Kind of a waste if it's only gameboys but if it gets jailbroken and have SNES, MD etc. cores made for it it could be pretty cool. The cartridge slot is a complete waste of space, though.

>> No.6151478

>Kind of a waste if it's only gameboys but if it gets jailbroken and have SNES, MD etc. cores made for it it could be pretty cool
They've advertised it as having an extra FPGA which will probably be precisely for that.

Cartridge slot is a waste, yes, but otherwise they'd not be able to give the illusion of this device being used for legitimate purposes.

Likely zero for games that want a GBA with no game in it (wind waker), and minimal for games that talk to a GBA cartridge (Pokemon box) unless the emulator is designed to be able to handle that. The gamecube communicates with the actual hardware in the GBA and this has none of that actual hardware, it's just an emulator box. It also looks like it doesn't have the holes for the hooks on the GBA-GC cable to hook in on either side of the port.

>> No.6153702

Makes sense though. Thanks for clarifying.

>> No.6153993

Do you even know what interpreting means fuck tard? You're basically calling analogue pocket a wrapper for the GB's cpu, when it isn't that. It's built from scratch and written in it's own unique way to mimic the GB, and it does so very accurately because it's at the hardware level.

>> No.6154260

I'm not even sure what they were thinking using that screen. I just recently acquired a new pocket go (pocket go v2?) and it uses a 3.5" 320x240 IPS screen and everything looks perfect on it. I don't understand why they think a retro handheld system needs such a ridiculous resolution.

>> No.6154345

enables integer scaling for all kinds of aspect ratios, maybe?
it's not like these high dpi-screens are rare or power-hungry anymore these days.

>> No.6154756

He's wrong, it likely will. FPGA isn't just normal software emulation, so it will probably feature real hardware connectivity. For example, with the Analogue Mega SG you can hook up a real Sega CD through the expansion port and it functions like a real Sega CD. So chances are it will have GameCube connectivity, but we'll soon see.
