Quoted from Coyote:

Interesting, I see two apparent 'batteries' - one molex plug named 'Battery', and one unpopulated 'BAT1'..

The BAT1 is for the real time clock for the Beaglebone Black interface. I built this board by hand and didn't have that part in stock. It will be populated in the released boards, of course.

The "Battery" connector allows a user who wants to use a Beaglebone Black the ability to have a "safe shutdown" of the Linux OS running on the Beaglebone Black. The FAST WPC Controller and FAST Core Controller both include this "safe shutdown" circuitry that when the 5v driving the board is cut, it switches to the power provided by a battery just long enough for the triggered "shutdown" of the Linux OS to complete its shutdown process.

Any news?

From what I gathered, CV and TotAN were shelved for the time being due to JPop's fall from grace. FH was also paused due to someone else having issues .. but seems like it may be started again when the platform is finished (hopefully soon).

It's unfortunate.....or maybe it was the plan all along to entrust these projects to Kevin and John......the old Williams strategy.....hey.....we tried......

I'm sure it will all come out in due time.....we all might be dead but due time...

Since rick from planetary left pinside, I'd say this thread is done. Check the forums on the pps website.

When it comes to updating these games I.would say its in our collective hands now. If you like a game and want it updated I would put a call out to like minded people, get a fast or proc board and get working. One person codes, one on dots, one on sounds. Maybe a fourth who does it all. It's so crazy it just might work....
