SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works
By: Eidolon  on: 2013/11/13 17:06 CET 
I don't know if anyone is still reading here - but if there is, I think the following Kickstarter project might be of interest!

SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works (external link)

The ultimate retrospective of the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis. A documentary art book by Read-Only? Memory.

SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works (セガ メガド ライブ/ジェネシス:作品集成) will be the definitive volume on the landmark console. The book is officially licensed by SEGA and celebrates the 25th anniversary of the console’s release. It will be an unparalleled treasury of production artwork, interviews, development sketches and hardware manufacturing plans.
The Inn 2013 and beyond
By: Eidolon  on: 2012/12/29 20:37 CET 
Dear Eidolon's Inn user,

I would like to let you know that the website in it's current form will be deactivated very soon, including all user accounts. I just don't have the spare time anymore to keep it up-to-date, neither from a technology nor from a content point of view.

However, it will *hopefully* not be the end of the website altogether. There is too much content which deserves to be preserved, such as
- Steve Snake's Kega emulator community
- Sam Pettus' SegaBase stories
- The Tavern community & community history (e.g. Tavern RPG -> Pier Solar)

So I will start the year 2013 by thinking of how to completely re-do the website from scratch. This is two-fold, technology and content.

1) Technology
It turns out that my 2004 choice - re-doing Eidolon's Inn with the complex TikiCMS system, was a dead-end. With my little spare time, I can't keep up with maintaining such a complex CMS. So the new CMS of choice will most likely be WordPress?, if it has a decent forum/BBS plugin. Because of this switch of technology, it will not be possible to migrate content and user accounts directly.

2) Content
Apart from the above-mentioned items, what else do you think MUST be migrated to the new website?

I would appreciate your feedback on this!

Moreover, if you have more spare time than me and would like to get a more active role in the "New Inn", please let me know!

Please head over to the Tavern to discuss this and contribute.

Thanks for your time,

M.U.L.E. Kickstarter campaign
By: Eidolon  on: 2012/06/15 00:33 CEST 
As you know, I'm not only the webmaster of the Inn, but also from the World of M.U.L.E. (external link)

Today, a Kickstarter campaign has started to revive M.U.L.E. for a modern gaming audience. Spread the word and back the campaign if you like to see that happen! It would be a great tribute to the iconic 1983 Atari/C64 M.U.L.E. game for it's 30th anniversary next year.

Head on over to any of those links here to see the details:

And if you wonder what the "secret designs" could be which are mentioned in the Kickstarter project, you could head over here (external link) and see what Dan Bunten had in mind for the (unfortunately never released) version of M.U.L.E. for the Sega Genesis.
Some changes to this website
By: Eidolon  on: 2012/05/31 10:13 CEST 
As many may have noticed, the Inn has been overrun by spam bots. In order to solve the problem, this site needs a complete overhaul. Until that has happened, I had to disable the registration of new users, and some other site features such as commenting. Already registered users can still use the site as usual. Sorry guys! Don't know when the overhaul will take place... Isn't there a site anniversary coming up? (15 years, wow...) :-)
Book Collection about Mega Drive/Genesis

From: GagaGames (external link)

An amazing book collection about books for Mega Drive/Genesis, called Mega Drive: Total!

The European publishing Pixel Nation, which has released some very exciting booklets about games, announced a new project that will leave 99% of readers Eidolon's Inn / GagaGames? drooling.

Yes, a book on the Mega Drive would be nice, but ... how about a collection of books about him? Holy shit!

Do not lie to yourself ... you know who also wants one of these.

The series will talk about more than 900 games and hundreds of Mega Drive games for Sega CD and 32x. According to the official announcement, the collection will be "the most complete source of information about the classic and beloved 16-bit console from Sega."

The first volume, with 180 color pages talking about almost 300 games will be released in July, and depending on the shipping will cost a little less than 60 dollars. BUY HERE (external link)!

Surging Aura Russian translation!
By: gamer_boy  on: 2012/01/07 01:40 CET 
(Hi y'all, long time no see)²... ;-)

One dreams of Eidolon has come almost true, I just got the second word that a Russian translation (external link) of Surging Aura has been released recently (December 2011).
So, I hope it is only a matter of time until an English version follows, so that we all can enjoy one of the last (and reportedly best) Sega Genesis RPGs.

Triton Z80 Emulator
By: Michel Gerritse  on: 2011/08/04 21:11 CEST 
I've released the source code of my Zilog Z80 emulator. You can find it in the download section.

What is implemented:
- All documented / undocumented opcodes.
- All documented / undocumented flags.
- Interrupt Mode 1 (Mode 0 and 2 are not fully implemented).
- Simple to use "C" interface.
- Instruction accurate (not cycle accurate).

This emulator is able to complete the Zexall test without any errors. However, emulation bugs still might exist. If you do find some bugs, please let me know.
You are free to use this code for non commercial applications but please credit me as the original author. If you make any improvements to the code, please contact me as well.

Kega Fusion 3.64 (Windows)
By: Snake  on: 2010/03/07 21:04 CET 
New windows build, many small changes. This was unplanned, but I wanted to get it out there before I have to pack all my equipment away. May be problems, please do let me know if you find anything, and you may want to keep 3.63 around for a while.
