Patreon: 986-Studio need your help

I hate to ask for such a thing, but unfortunately, working on electronic project, especially the one like the Madeleine Project, or my projects around the Oric cost some me money, and money doesn’t grow on tree. I’m currently in a situation where I’m stuck and can’t work on project because of money.

That’s why, I’ve started a Patreon page to allow people who want to support me on theses projects. I can’t offert a lots of rewards for the moment as it’s a bit early, but I will make the reward evolve with time. Currently you can have one of the current beta Madeleine board if you pledge enough, quantity are limited so you should hurry! 😉

You are not obliged to help me through Patreon, it will not change my project and how this blog is working, unless mentioned in a reward/goal, it will just allow me to work quicker and in better conditions on my projects. All pledge amount are welcomed, and if you want to help me, even $1 is a good gesture from you, so don”t be ashamed if you can’t, or only a for small amount.

Don’t forget to put a maximum on your pledge per month as I setup my account on pledge per update and not per month, as I don’t know the frequency of update I will do, I plan for approx 1 per month, but I may sometime update more than once, and you may not want to put more this month.

So, if you want to help me and my project, you are welcome to go to

and become my patron.

Thank you to everyone who read this blog and to those who would want to help me,

Oric Cumulus Revision 2 & other projects

Hi everyone,

I didn’t updated here really often during the last month because I was quite busy and didn’t had a lot of time to works on my projects. I have more time now, and wow, I’ve made a lot of things recently!

As I previously posted, the Oric Mouse project is underway, I’ve discovered a few stupid mistakes and I was too confident when I made the PCB, I’ve overlooked something on the voltage that the 6502 and 6522 will accept as logic high, and of course both of them doesn’t like the 3.3V that I send them as a logic high… The result will be that I need to do some changes on the schematics for that project, but no worries, I will still be able to use the prototype I’ve made, but it’s just slowing down the project a bit, but it will be back on track quickly.

Presentation of the Project Madeleine

Hi everyone,

I’ve promised that a long time ago now and completely forgot to add the presentation here.

So, during the RGC2015, I made a presentation of the Project Madeleine, my primary project for the WonderSwan, which include the flash cart I’m working on.

The PDF of the presentation can be found here: Projet Madeleine Presentation

Apple IIgs composite output video mode

I am the proud owner of an Apple IIgs, that was gifted, for a few years now and played a lot with it. But as I don’t currently have a RGB monitor for it, I always used the composite output to get the video display, and I always complained about the fact that this fancy stuff only want to display in monochrome, or maybe in NTSC. I’ve searched for information about that for some times now and never found anything intereseting, and lots of people (including apple?) says that the composite output is monochrome, at least in PAL regions.
