After years of inactivity I decided to release two old project, which I started to work on in 2010, publicly on my GitHub account. I have not produced any prototypes yet, so they are currently more a draft. Both projects use a flash EPROM to store the data in the cartridge. The first one is a simple Amstrad Plus / Amstrad GX4000 cartridge, which can be equipped with an original ACID protection chip or with a Xilinx XC9536 CPLD for ACID emulation (you can read more about the emulation here).

The second project is the design of a flash cartridge, which can be programmed on a PC via USB and used in a Amstrad Plus / Amstrad GX4000. You can read more about the design in the README.md.

Maybe someone with more time is interested to take over the projects, otherwise I will work on them every now and then…

Optimus of Dirty Minds released a new game for the Amstrad Plus called Flappy UFO. It is a clone of the mobile phone game Flappy Bird, which gained popularity during the last few months. Optimus submitted this game to the Mini LudumDare retro challenge. If you have a real Amstrad Plus, be sure to play it on your machine, otherwise use WinApe to play it on your PC. You can download the game and its source code from Pouet.net (don’t forget to vote) and at the end of this news.
