    Hey everyone. It's been a while since I posted here.

    I've update my switchless mod for my Sega tower of the death: Megadrive + Mega CD + Super 32X.


    This time I used the DFO method, but I put the PIC16F630 on the bottom of a DIL Version.
    I'm still using the D4S code.

    I've also tried to put a proper Color Subcarrier for the 32x, but I have issue with the PAL one. :/
    It is also supposed to handle the proper C-IN/C-OUT and Y-IN/Y-OUT

    Some pics:

    Linked to the depository of those PCB:

    https://github.com/TRP-Retromods/Megadrive-Genesis-DFO-Switchless
    https://github.com/TRP-Retromods/32X-Switchless-Dual-Subcarrier

    Next update will be a DFO for the 32x would be great, but unfortunately I don't have the skill. I found some equivalent of the CDCE913 but for a two pin oscillator, but I don't know for the programmer side. :/

    Thanks! I have to go with my family for new year's eve, but after that I'll update the depository. I need to explain the installation of the PCB in 32x.

    This is fantastic, I've been working on a similar project as well. I really like your work. Is it open source?
