Adding a component video (YPbPr) output to an SNES console image
Adding an Y/Pb/Pr (also known as Component video) to some SNES models is possible, and my triple video buffer board is perfect for this project. Visit the page for an example.
PC-Booter (re)creation tool: Booterify image
A tool to convert 16-bit .EXE et .COM executables to bootable floppy images without DOS. Can recreate the original experience of some old PC booter games or add a nice extra touch to homebrew retro works.
Updated firmware for the 4 NES/SNES controllers to USB adapter project (4nes4snes) image
New in version 1.5:
  • NES buttons have been reassigned to match SNES buttons. This makes it possible to switch controller type without reconfiguring anything. Works great for RetroPie...

About me

Hello, I'm Raphaël Assénat. I live near Montreal, a city located in Quebec province, Canada. I have two big passions in life: Computers and Electronics. Those two disciplines allows me to quench my desire to create things, my curiosity, and my desire to learn. I'm always working on many projects at the same time and I dont have enough time to do all the projects I'd like. But fortunately, once I begin working on a project, I rarely stop before it's finished.

Programming is my main hobby, and I like to do it using C and assembler. Preferably, on Linux or Unix platforms. I'm not interested at all by windows programming. What I like the most is when I have the chance to work on projects involving both programming and electronics. For instance, writing software which controls external circuitry designed by me, or even better, programming microcontrollers.

Other than computing and programming, I like to play piano and enjoy relaxing by playing RPG video games. (And thus many projects on this site are related to video games...)
