What's the LÖVEMESS?
LÖVEMESS is a mega project which consists of one or multiple modules which will be "add-ons" for the M.E.S.S. emulator.
Many video game consoles/systems which are considered 'Discrete Logic" (they don't have a CPU) and any consoles/systems
that has a "Dedicated Game Chip" (like the General Instrument AY-3-8500-1 for an example) will never be emulated
in M.E.S.S. (click HERE to learn about the M.E.S.S. emulator) since M.E.S.S.
emulates consoles/systems that only have a CPU. So this project is for simulating these video game consoles/systems for
digital archival and historical purpose.
Discrete Logic & Dedicated Game Chips video game consoles/systems will be divided in these sub-categories:
01 - Discrete Logic "Pong-type" Consoles (1974-1977)
02 - Dedicated Game Chip "Pong-type" consoles & systems (1975-1979)
03 - Milton Bradley Microvision (1979 - the first portable handheld)
04 - Brandvance Galactic Invaders (1981 - has a 6503 CPU)
Category #2 will be done by specific "Dedicated Game Chips" because there is more than 1,000 "Pong-type" consoles/systems
out there and about 60% of them uses a GI AY-3-8500-1, so this way, it will be a lot easier than doing a whole freaking
bunch of "Pong-Type" consoles/systems.
