The original arcade hardware PCB contains 7 memory regions

 cpu addressable space
 - program                  rom  24Kx8, cpu only access
 - working ram              ram   2Kx8, cpu only access
 - color/sprite-data        ram   1Kx8, cpu + (2 access / 8 pixels)
 - background buffer        ram   1Kx8, cpu + (1 access / 8 pixels)

 non cpu addressable region   

 - background/sprite graphics      rom 8Kx16, (1 access / 8 pixels) 
 - background/sprite color palette rom 64x8 , (1 access / pixels)
 - sound samples                   rom 8Kx8 , low rate

The pixel clock is 6MHz, the cpu clock is 3MHz.
Background color contains 2 high bits of tile code.
Sprite color contains horizontal and vertical invert control  
Video frame is 384 pixels x 264 lines.
Video display is 256 pixels x 240 lines.
Each lines contains 8 sprites and 32 background tiles. 
Each frames contains 28 background tiles height.

Each tile is 8x8 pixels
Each sprite is 16x16 pixels

Sound is composed of AY-3-8910 music and TMS5110 synthetized speech

You need to build vhdl ROM image files from the binary file :
 - Unzip the roms file in the tools/bagman_unzip directory
 - Double click (execute) the script tools/make_bagman_proms.bat to get the following files



The script make_bagman_proms uses make_vhdl_prom and and duplicate_byte executables delivered both in linux and windows version. The script itself is delivered only in windows version (.bat) but should be easily ported to linux.

Source code of make_vhdl_prom.c and and duplicate_byte.c is also delivered.

Compiling for de10_lite
You can rebuild the project with ROM image embeded in the sof file. DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE THESE FILES.
4 steps

 - put the VHDL rom files into the project directory
 - rebuild bagman_de10_lite project
 - program bagman_de10_lite.sof into the fpga 

Keyboard and swicth
Use directional key to move, space to jump, F1/F2 to start player 1/2 and F3 for coins
de10_lite sw0 allow to switch 15kHz/31kHz

End of file
You can’t perform that action at this time.
