Welcome to SplitBar!

SplitBar is my personal website, a page where I can add articles about stuff I like, do and am passionate about. The content you will find on this site is video game related, computer oriented (mostly Amiga/vintage PC), some pencils reviews and some pages about my small Mini-Z  RC collection and much more. While having a personal website and having such different topics on a single site might seem like a major faux pas in these days, I have always liked this kind of webpage and this is a little tribute to that kind of sites!

Harmony 2600 flash cartridge

The Harmony 2600 is an SD-card based flash cartridge for the Atari 2600. I decided to get one of these cartridges since I was curious about Atari 2600 gaming and they where relatively cheap. 2600 games are not exactly expensive, but having the full library on a single cartridge is nice.

I thought it would be a quick afternoon of work to wire the motherboard to a joypad and a SCART cable in order to set it up. But I ran into a lot of trouble with the setup... Read more

Excited for new hardware that adds RGB to the Nintendo NES

As you probably know you can not get RGB output from the Nintendo NES (unless you hack it with a PPU from a rare Playchoice 10 or play you games on a ugly Video Titler). There are currently a project called UniversalPPU trying to create a... Read more
