The XGameStation Micro Edition (XGS ME) is a retro-inspired educational video game console designed specifically for both hardware and software hackers. The system is powered by an 80 MIP RISC processor, has direct raster controlled graphics, 3-channel sound, a built-in programmer, and is capable of outputting both NTSC and PAL composite video. Additionally, to round out the retro-roots of the XGS, it's directly compatible with vintage Atari 2600 joysticks as well as custom-designed game pads.
The following guides explain the main functionality of the XGameStation Micro Edition in a simple, tutorial-style format and are designed to get you up and running as quickly and easily as possible. If you have any trouble with any of these guides, refer to the Common Problems and Issues section, as well as the Troubleshooting chapter near the end of this user guide.
When your XGS ME arrives, it’s already pre-programmed with a demo so you can verify the system works, as well as get an immediate sense of what the XGS ME can do as soon as you boot the machine. This guide will help you set up and connect the hardware for the maiden boot-up.
First, make sure the power switch (near the controller ports on the front of the board) is set to Off so we can be sure the system won’t get power until we’re ready. Next, insert the jack-end of the power supply in the XGameStation’s power port (near to the parallel port on the back of the board) and plug the power supply into a wall outlet.
