This might be more directed to Krikzz...
I've had this idea for a while now and i'm not sure how to implement this, but here goes...
I noticed the SDK for the MEGA ED is available, and I was reading the sample code for 'mega-cd', a program that reads a txt file on the SD card, and i'm impressed at this functionality
So..I was recently thinking of an idea that involves loading a given list of roms from a txt file. You start at the first rom, then switch to the next rom given a set timeframe. The basic algorithm is:
20 Load text file
30 Load rom at line i (or quit if end of txt file)
40 wait for a set time frame (say, 30 seconds as an example)
60 go to line 30
I don't know how possible this is, given that the program would have to still be in memory while it switches roms. Also, i don't know if there exists a function to load a rom on the Mega ED? or if i can even access a timer?
What I wanted to achieve with this was like a "kiosk" mode system, that just goes through a list of games in a given text file. It could be used in gaming competitions. Or, you just want to test a random set of roms and play each for a few minutes before the next game.
So, can you see where i'm going with this idea? and is it possible?
BTW I wanted to ask about whether this was possible with the existing ED and SNES-ED but I doubt it
EDIT: Also would be good to randomise a rom list to achieve the above...
