Open Mic Poetry

Out of curiosity, I’ve checked Magical Zunou Power on ST-V and its serial communication with the self-called sub board. Game talks with “something” via a serial port, and it does your usual serial checks (buffer Rx FULL, buffer Tx FULL, END flag, time out). Not knowing the protocol used this is quite annoying to HLE, so for now I’ve hacked the comms checks.

It ended up that the game is all about a quiz game based off a Japanese TV Quiz show, that uses a microphone in order to give answers, that obviously isn’t doable with current MAME I/O framework.
