s_bastian has done it again!
After numerous heroic efforts to get enough free time to work on MAME, s_bastian has come through again with the Typing Monkeys project! This time it's the QSound chip the doc most recently decapped. Many of you already know the drill, but there are a couple of new options for you to play with this time.
First. Take a look at this image:
That is how the data is laid out in the chip. In other words, if you're on an edge, please ignore that column of 1's on the left (or right) side.
Second. Since there are some regions of the ROM that are very difficult to make out, multiple photographs have been taken of certain sections of the ROM. If you are having an extremely difficult time reading some of the bits, save you work, then try clicking on the "Image 01", "Image 02", or "Image 03" radio selections and click the "Apply Filters" button. If there is a different photo of the section you're working on, it will appear in the image window.
I completed a dsp16a disassembler and committed it to the MAME tree awhile back, so once we get all this stuff typed in, we can start trying to decode the bits immediately.
Without further ado:
Thanks again goes out to s_bastian and Dr. Decapitator. Happy typing!
PS. A little dot is a '1' and an empty space is a '0'
