I guess we need a Carnivore #3 with a bigger FPGA ;-)

As I once mentioned in one of my interviews at Nijmegen, Carnivore3 is unlikely to happen. And even if there would be a successor for Carnivore2, what would be the demand? I doubt that people will dump their existing Carnivore2s to get a slightly better cartridge with easy firmware updating. Or am I mistaken?

If that would be the only upgrade, you'd probably be right.
If there would be a new version with stuff like more memory, 2nd SCC, MSX-Audio/Moonsound but the same ease of use, I could see people moving over.

I definitely agree. I was at a concert earlier this week. The lead singer said: “I know one thing now. Guys will stay kids, their toys get more expensive” Wink

There seems to be a constant demand for Carnivore as more and more people hear from it. I would happily buy the new version and sell the old one to the hardware guys who might even enjoy the upgrade process. Like tfh said MSX-Audio and Moonsound would be sweet. Also, a lot of people complain about the CF card. Personally I use a SD adapter but I guess a built in SD connector would lure in hesitant buyers Wink

The CF card compatibility issues should have been largely resolved by the latest 2.50 release.

Does anyone know a good VHDL implementation of MSX Audio btw? With PCM support.

GR8NET has MSX Audio with PCM and sample RAM, not sure if it is VHDL and what license is on the code. Eugeny should be able to shed some light on it.

Additionally it seems Grauw mentioned in this thread that Y8950 VHDL could be made starting from YM2608 VHDL.

Does anyone know where I still might be able to pick up a Carnivore 2 (I live in Germany)? I have been looking for some while and they seem to be non existant Crying
