🔥 CONOCIENDO el Dandanator Entertainment System [ DES ]


PRESENTS WHAT’S UP! DEAR AMSTRAD USERS AND FRIENDS DEAR AUA CHANNEL FRIENDS IT’S PABLO FORCÉN, MEMBER OF AUA AND TODAY… I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU ALL FINALLY, A VERY COOL GADGET AND IT IS… IN THIS LITTLE PACK, RIGHT AND IT IS… IT IS… IT IS… IT IS… DES, DANDANATOR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM FIRST OF ALL WE’D LIKE TO THAN… TO THANK ALL THE PEOPLE
MIXED UP IN THIS PROJECT FROM DANDARE, IN WHICH DESIGN IS DES BASED JGILCAS, MANUEL IP, VICTOR, AND A LOT OF MEMBERS OF AUA THAT WE ACHIEVED… OR THEY ACHIEVED, OK GETTING THIS FINAL PRODUCT WHICH MAKES ME REALLY HAPPY AND SATISFIED OK, WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY… WE’RE ABOUT TO ANALYSE DES DES, THIS THING WE HAVE HERE THIS IS THE DOCK, OK WHERE EEPROM CARTS ARE PLUGGED IN AND IT IS CONNECTED TO THE 50 PIN EXPANSION PORT ON THE CPC IT DOESN’T MATTER IF WE HAVE A CLASSIC OR PLUS CPC BECAUSE THE INTERFACE IS FULL COMPATIBLE WE JUST DEPEND ON THE RIGHT LEAD FOR THE RIGHT PLUG ON THE OTHER HAND,
IN THE DOCK WE CAN SEE A MINI-USB PORT WHICH LINKS TO THE PC BY THIS USB TO MINI-USB LEAD AND LETS US CREATING OUR OWN GAME SETS,
CUSTOM MENUS, PROGRAMS, ETC., OK HERE WE FIND A RESET PUSH BUTTON HERE IS THE STAND OF THE DOCK AND HERE IS ANOTHER EXPANSION PORT TO PLUG
MEMORY EXPANSIONS, AUDIO CARDS, WHATEVER YOU WANT AND HERE A POWER SUPPLY PORT
IN CASE WE HAVE TOO MANY EXPANSIONS PLUGGED IN OR AN MX-4 BOARD AS WELL I CAN CONNECT MY DES TO THE EXPANSION PORT
AND THEN HERE I CAN CONNECT MY MX-4 AND THE REST OF EXPANSIONS I’D LIKE TO ON THE OTHER HAND, WE ALSO FIND IN THE PACK I GOT IT BEFORE, THE LEAD 50 PIN EDGE CONNECTOR ON THIS SIDE,
50 PIN IDC CONNECTOR ON THE OTHER SIDE THIS IS THE LEAD THAT LINKS DES TO THE CPC A GOOD THING… WE DON’T NEED THIS CABLE… A REALLY GOOD THING WHEN WE CONNECT DES IS THAT THE EXPANSION PORT AND THE LEAD
ARE CONNECTED JUST ONCE BECAUSE… I’M GOING TO SWITCH IT OFF BEFORE I SWITCH IT OFF, I CONNECT THE DOCK HERE IT IS, STANDING PROPERLY, IT DOESN’T MOVE EVERYTIME WE PLUG A CART IN IT JUST AFFECTS THE SLOT OF DES THE GOOD THING IS THAT THE EXPANSION PORT WON’T BE DAMAGED WE SWITCH ON AND IF THERE IS NO CART INSERTED THE CPC WILL START ON AMSDOS PROMPT SO, IT MEANS IT’S NOT NECESSARY
TO DISCONNECT THE DOCK TO WORK ON THE CPC JUST WITH AMSDOS IF WE WANT TO START DANDANATOR… WE JUST SWITCH IT OFF… AND PLUG A LITTLE CART IN WE DON’T NEED IT ANYMORE IN OUR PACK WE ALSO GOT THREE CARTS THEY ARE ALREADY FLASHED THOSE PEOPLE HAD A NICE DETAIL, THANKS A LOT,
FLASHING THEM WITH A LOT OF GAMES AND, FOR INSTANCE, LET’S GET A CART TO SHOW YOU HOW THEY ARE LET’S OPEN IT IT’S A BIT DIFFICULT… OK IT HAS ONE WAY, FROM TOP TO BOTTOM AND… AS YOU CAN SEE
IT SEEMS TO BE A GBA CARTRIDGE OK… GAMEBOY ADVANCED IT IS ALSO MADE NOWADAYS THAT’S A BENEFIT,
I MEAN THERE ARE A LOT OF POSSIBILITIES TO FABRICATE MORE CARTS FOR THE CPC IT IS NOT AN OBSOLETE CARTIDGE FORMAT 3D PRINTING IS NOT NEEDED BECAUSE OUR CHINESE MATES ARE STILL FABRICATING THEM AND ON THE INSIDE THERE IS JUST A LITTLE PCB
THAT FITS IN THE DOCK AND ALSO AN EEPROM
WHICH IS FLASHED WITH A SELECTION MENU
THAT WE CAN CREATE ON OUR OWN OR THE ONE THAT THE GAME PUBLISHER
HAD DECIDED BEFORE, OK IT HAS A FEW ADVANTAGES BECAUSE THIS CART CAN BE FLASHED AGAIN AND AGAIN IF I’M BORED WITH THE 10 OR 15 GAMES
CONTAINED ON THIS CART I COULD CREATE A NEW MENU
USING AN APP ON WINDOWS, LINUX OR MAC AND I COULD DUMP IT ON THE FLASH BY DES SO… WE ARE GOING TO PLUG IT IN THE DOCK
AND WE WILL SEE… NOW, WHEN THE CART IS IN THE DOCK IT SHOULD START… DANDANATOR,
THE CART WE HAVE IN THE DOCK AND THE MENU AS WELL THERE YOU CAN SEE…
CPC DANDANATOR MINI AND THERE ARE A FEW GAMES:
EXOLON, ETC., ETC., ETC. STAR SABRE, FOR INSTANCE IF WE WANT TO RUN IT WE COULD SELECT FROM 1 TO 10 IT SHOWS 64 KB GAMES AND 128 KB AS WELL IT IS A 664 WITH NO EXTRA MEMORY SO I’M GOING TO RUN STAR SABRE, #9 I PUSH #9 AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE IS A SUPER SHORT LOAD OK I PUSH #1 AND THEN FIRE AND I’M GOING TO HAVE A FAST GAME THEN PEOPLE SAY THAT
THERE ARE NO SHOOTERS FOR THE AMSTRAD AND THAT WE ARE IN TROUBLE WITH THE SCROLLING, MEN… THIS STAR SABER… IT IS A DELIGHTING SHOOTER THIS IS DELIGHTING… I DON’T CARE ABOUT NEMESIS, GRADIUS OR MSX JUST 64 KB MEN… NO DOPING NOTHING BUT A CPC WHAT… A WONDER IF WE WANT TO RESET…
WE PUSH THE RESET SWITCH AND WE WILL BE BACK TO DANDANATOR MENU PUSHNG THE KEY P
WE SWITCH ON THE POKE MODE I GUESS THEY MUST BE PRELOADED OR SOMETHING
I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY LEFT OR RIGHT TO SWAP THE SCREENS OF THE MENU AND… IF WE WANT TO SWAP THE CARTRIDGE WE JUST SWITCH OFF THE CPC WE TAKE ANOTHER LITTLE CART LET’S SEE THIS WAY… WE GET THE GBA CART THAT IT IS NOT REALLY A GBA CART
IT IS A DANDANATOR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM CART WE PLUG IT IN… AND THEN WE SWITCH IT ON AND SHORTLY THERE IS… THIS DELAY IS DUE TO MY TV SET
BECAUSE IT IS AN OLD TFT SCREEN THE ONE I USE WITH MY CPC BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF ROOM FOR THE ORIGINAL CRT
THAT IS STORED IN MY JUNK ROOM AND THAT DELAY IS REALLY DUE TO THE SCREEN
NOT DUE TO DES OR THE CPC ITSELF OR ANYTHING ELSE IT IS REALLY A SHORT BOOT FOR INSTANCE, HERE WE CAN SEE THAT IN THIS CART WE HAVE
OLD AND NEW SCHOOL GAMES FOR INSTANCE WE HAVE ARKANOID 2
THAT IS A GAME… 77 ATTEMPTS, FOR INSTANCE LET’S RUN IT
THIS IS BRAND NEW THIS IS A NEW ONE FROM THE CPCRETRODEV EHHH… REMAP KEYS LET’S REMAP RIGHT, LEFT, LET’S SEE… I MUST REMAP AGAIN BECAUSE… LET’S SEE, LET’S SEE… REMAP, #3 RIGHT, LEFT AND JUMP START AWESOME OK, AWESOME… THE LOADING… IT IS A WONDER, MEN IT IS A WONDER A WONDER WE RESET… IT STARTS AND WE WILL RUN FROM OUR MENU WE ARE GOING TO RUN ANOTHER GAME FOR INSTANCE ARKANOID 2 THAT WAS A SLOW TAPE LOADING
IT COMES TO MY MIND F**K! REALLY SHORT LOAD, MEN J FOR JOYSTICK AND FIRE IT IS REALLY COOL SAME GAME EXACTLY THE SAME THAN BEFORE I OWNED THIS GAME FOR THE 464 JOYFUL GAME, A WONDER WE RESET…
AND THERE IS OUR MENU AGAIN IF WE WANT TO SWAP THE LITTLE CART… WE GET THE THIRD CARTRIDGE FROM THE BOX LET’S OPEN IT OPENING THE BOX IT’S A BIT TRICKY… WE PLUG THE GRAY ONE IN IN MY OPINION THE OTHER ONES ARE COOLER THESE ARE COOLER RED AND BLUE TRANSPARENT ARE REALLY COOL BUT THAT WILL BE A DECISION OF THE DISTRIBUTION WOW! PONG AND FROGGER I’M GOING TO RUN FROGGER FROGGER FOREVER 8 BITS OF POWER
AWESOME C’MON THE CPC NEEDED A FROGGER WE WILL GO ACROSS VERY WELL… WELL, THIS IS ONE IS MUCH BETTER THAN ATARI 2600 VERSION THAT ONE I PLAYED YEARS AGO AND I TOLD WAS RADIACTIVE I WENT ACROSS WITH THE FROG… AWESOME! WELL, WE RESET DANDANATOR MENU IS BACK AGAIN AND WE ARE GOING TO RUN, FOR INSTANCE, PONG I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT THE CPC NEEDED
ITS OWN VERSION OF PONG REALLY COOL REAL, GENUINE I DON’T KNOW WITH A DIGITAL CONTROLLER… I DON’T KNOW HOW IT GOES…
BECAUSE PONG HAS ALWAYS BEEN PLAYED WITH AN ANALOG CONTROLLER ON THE OTHER HAND ON THE CPC
WE USED TO PLAY ARKANOID WITH A DIGITAL CONTROLLER AND THAT WAS EXTREMELY HARD
BUT IT’S OK AWESOME OK FRIENDS IT IS… DES OR DANDANATOR ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM I HOPE YOU LIKED IT IT IS AN INTERESTING CHANCE IS A GOOD AND FAST MEDIA STORAGE SYSTEM IT IS LONG LIFE THIS IS NOT A MAGNETIC DISC WHICH AFTER LONG TIME MIGHT BE DELETED OR CAN BE DAMAGED BY A DUMB HEADER…
SCRATCHING IT IT’S OBVIOUSLY FASTER THAN DISCS I WON’T TALK ABOUT TAPES… SO, WE’LL SEE IF IT BECOMES A NEW STANDARD
FOR OUR SYSTEM BECAUSE OTHER SYSTEMS LIKE MSX HAD ENJOYED CARTRIDGES SINCE THE BEGINNING AND WE HAVE NOW A CHANCE TO ENJOY CARTS AS WELL BUT NOT JUST THAT…
YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN MENUS YOUR OWN COMPILATIONS
WHICH IS VERY COOL IN THE END,
WE ALWAYS PLAY THE SAME GAMES AND WE LIKE TO PLAY BRAND NEW GAMES AND THIS IS A GOOD OPORTUNITY FOR THAT NOTHING ELSE…
I HOPE YOU LIKED THIS GADGET WE’D LIKE TO GET YOUR SUPPORT AS SOON AS IT COMES AND WE WANT YOU TO BEAT AND LOVE THE CPC ALL THE BEST AND I HOPE YOU LIKED IT BYE YOU CAN ORDER YOU DES NOW

  • Fantástico trasto!
    Me alegro mucho por la comunidad amstradera, que ahora tiene una joya para seguir dando caña sin parar al CPC. 👏👏👏👏👏

  • Una pregunta desde mi ignorancia… Es posible grabar datos en el Chip del Dandanator desde el mismo CPC?¿, por ejemplo settings del juego, o poder dejar una partida a medias apagar el ordenador y volver a reiniciar desde el punto en que estabas… O la única manera de poder programar el Chip es desde el PC.Gracias.

  • Hola buenas tardes,me gustaría saber:
    -El precio?
    -Que te envían cuando lo solicitas?
    -Cuántos juegos? aproximadamente entran en los cartuchos?
    -Para que CPC es compatible?
    -Si necesito más juegos,puedo pedir más cartuchos?
    -Si es así por cuánto?
    Espero no ser muy pesado pero es dandanator mola👍 un saludo
