Howto : Build Saturn cartridge firmware from regular Saturn executable

Written by cafealpha no comments
In this article, I will explain how to build Saturn cartridge firmware from Saturn executable file.

Note : it doesn't magically convert .iso files to cartridge format ! It only convert standalone executable (typically, a file that can be executed after being uploaded to 06004000 address), and doesn't support programs that use CDROM.
So, basically commercial games can't be converted, and only some (not all) homebrew programs can be converted.

I'm using Notepad++ daily. I should even say I'm using it many times a day !

At work instead of the crappy Visual Studio code editor.
At home in complement with gcc and instead of Quartus code editor.

東京へ行きました

…そして無事に帰りました^^
長男と一緒に東京へ日帰り旅行をしました。
往路は格安ジェットスターに乗ったが、強風のせいかジェットスターの独特な着陸ポリシーのせいかわかりませんが、着陸のとき、機内は凄い揺れていました。
息子からのコメント「ジェットコースターみたいだね、だからジェットスターっていうんだね」^^

親子旅行だからもちろん東京ディズニーランドに行き、そして夕方は東京スカイツリーに行きました。

復路は息子が楽しみにしていた寝台列車に乗り、翌日の朝にやっとマイホームに帰ってそのままいつもどおりの出勤。
