    Thomas Roth should get in contact with MADrigal. It would be unbelievable if we could experience G&W simulations on the original HW. I think no one ever really dumped the original G&Ws, so this would be the most closest attempt.
    By the way, I should really add more pictures to my news stories, otherwise they will go unnoticed and Chary will do her front page. haha --> https://gbatemp.net/threads/new-smb...lashed-with-modified-rom.577137/#post-9274446

    Can’t wait for someone to fully homebrew this device, maybe add a fourth channel in the game selection menu, I can’t wait :)

    It’s an electronic device, so it needs a Doom port.

    I really loved the video, getting the thing to run doom in it's crappiest form I've ever seen it run, it's next to unplayable but it works! It's about the voyage not the destination. I thought about getting the Game&Watch but now I know I don't need it at all (but I might pick one up anyway).

    Many models are dumped :)
    Contrary to common knowledge of 15 years ago, they actually have a general purpose digital processor with builtin rom, and therefore true emulation is possible (and done, in mame and a couple others)

    you mean this information is outdated? http://www.madrigaldesign.it/sim/info.php
    Are you 100% sure, the .mgw files used with mame are dumps? Do you have more recent links?

    If you are right I will have to argue at the heavens gate. Oh crap.

    In fact as you can read in the last link, Nintendo G&W (as opposed to their contemporary and newer direct competitors) are relatively easy to dump :D

    Never heard of .mgw but last time I checked, mame roms don't have an extension per se

    ok. emulation is new. mame roms for the system looks like attached.

    I was only aware of .mgw used with the g&w core of retropie. It is just a simulation. https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Game-&-Watch/

    I've wanted one of these, but I'll probably have to pay scalping prices, which aren't too bad. I looked up the normal price at like $50? scalping prices are around $70-80. not too bad I guess, but it sucks for me. I'm also collecting amiibos, so I need to figure out which ones I don't have, then pay scalping prices for them as well. I don't know how people learn when those are being released, new ones I mean and are there at just the right time.

    cool, but not as cool as the g&w roms, as discussed bef
    with some luck you could buy an original 80s G&W for less.

    Albeit having Game & Watch functionality written on the tin, it's not easy figuring out how to run MGW files in MAME.
    But it is there nonetheless.

    Most people, including myself, run it through RetroArch branches, including your RetroPIE.
    Incidentally, it runs great on the 3DS, which is where I keep those that didn't make the GameBoy titles cut.

    Unfortunately, I have never found a complete official collection in MGW format.
    If you do own a 3DS, the New Super Ultimate Injector is currently the best way to experience them short of porting into the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.

    wait, STM32 did you say?
    huh isn't that basically the exact same chip used in the SX core and SX lite mod chips being sold by team xecuter?
    (SX core/SX lite use GD32 an exact clone of STM32 according to Mike Heskin)

    INB4 Nintendo sues itself

    ultimate troll ,
    >take apart game&watch
    > cut up board with a dremel
    >now that SX mod chip FW has been dumped upload SX core FW to STM32 removed from game and watch
    >solder board fragment with STM32 into mariko switch console
    >trick Nintendo into $uing itself
    >profit

    What a shame that the ram and storage is so small. Imagine running Super mario war running on it :D

    What this devices absolutety needs, is a minimalist port of MAME, to emulate all single screen Game&Watch. MAME already emulates all G&W, so I suppose it should be possible?
    MADrigal's simulators (MGW) were cool and all, but they're kind of obsolete, now that real G&W emulation is a thing.
