A new die is up at http://cs.sipr0n.org ! This is another member of the TGP series on the SEGA Model 1 hardware. There will be a few more of these, so don't give up, as the monkeys are already proving to be worth their weight in bananas! Check out some of the things you've accomplished:
Each of these dies had been previously converted to bits by a combination of an automatic algorithm and hand-validation. Take a look at what the typing monkey project helped us accomplish:
The first die typed, sega_315-5571_xpol, confirmed the previous effort was 100% correct. This may seem like a bummer, but we now have 6 separate groups of people confirming the dump is correct. This is *very good* for those working with this data, as confidence like this is essential to moving forward.
The second die typed by the monkeys, the sega_315-5572_xpol, fixed 8 incorrect bits in the previous typing! Huge.
The third die monkey-typed, the sega_315-5573_xpol fixed 10 incorrect bits in the previous typing! Huger!
The fourth die, the sega_315-5677_xpol, fixed 7 bits(!), and confirmed that there are ~4 bits that are too difficult to see. This greatly helps the person taking the photos of the dies narrow in on where to take better pictures and fix the dump for good.
So there you have it. The monkeys have typed their way into the hearts of dumpers everywhere, and are already making a difference. The TGP emulation work in MAME will be slow and arduous, but it can move forward with confidence, knowing that the dumps very high quality.
Thanks again, and happy typing!
