SNES Central 20th anniversary
title

Today is a big day, as it marks the 20th anniversary of SNES Central. Little did I know when I created a basic, yellow coloured website with frames in my university dorm room, that it would morph into a large database that is used by countless SNES fans. I thank everyone for visiting, and for the many contributors that made this all possible!

2020 was a pretty tough year for me, so I did not make as much progress on the site as I had hoped. However, I have made some progress on creating a database system for SNES Central. There is quite a bit of work left to do, but I can report that progress is being made and I am hopeful that by this time next year that it will be ready and that content will be moved to it. By having a database system, it will become substantially easier to update this site, which in its current form is difficult to link and track things.

As a bit of a content update, I decided to make some short pages on a few of the unreleased SNES games that have come out during the past couple of years. Enjoy!

DSP1Demo Source Code

I'm have written an article about an official DSP1 demo that was created by Nintendo. The source code was originally written in mid-1992, and the comments translated to English in early 1993. Many thanks to Frank Cifaldi and The Video Game History Foundation for preserving this, and Luigiblood for assembling the binaries.

PCB documentation update
title

Today, I have uploaded a major update on the documentation of PCB boards. This is the second step in my long term plan to make SNES Central more database centric. With this update, there are a total of 170 PCB types documented, with more complete information than what was previously on the pages. This is the first of two updates, there will be another one soon with more prototype boards.
