Hey everyone, great news! The author of Mr. Do’s Nightmare, Crazy Ivan, gave us permission to include his game with the Papilio Arcade. This means that we can provide you with a bit file that already includes the ROMs! This was very generous of him and we are very thankful for his kind contribution.
We also have to thank Papilio user Macro for making all of this possible. Not only did he facilitate everything but has made galaxian multi-games in the past so he put his skills to work and put together a package that includes a ready to run bit file for the Papilio.
A little while back, we received some user contributed code from reader and Papilio user Alex, for converting Verilog code to VHDL. The article illustrates the conversion for the game Galaxian. If you’re learning VHDL, or are interested in Verilog to VHDL conversion, Alex’s article lays it out nicely for you with examples from Katsumi Degawa’s Galaxian FPGA project.
With the release of the Papilio Arcade, we thought this submission was most appropriate! Thanks Alex – great article!
Hit the split for Alex’s original article, and please keep the discussion going in comments!
