I've updated the Sonus to run 16 channels of audio. The G D E is yet to be updated to accomidate the increase in TTS and Audio channels but I'll get around to it soon.
At the moment there is no online capabilities in the Sonus, although if we are serious about including python scripts its something I should look into doing so we can import our own libraries.
The idea of the sonus is to not have a visual display.
Games will be stored on external media and so will the saved data.
It is built to be a stand-alone device but you could maybe split the audio output and feed it as an audio input into a PC if you wish to record it.
There is no native form of multiplayer and the entire algorithm for playing games would need to be changed to incorperate it. but if we include internet access then maybe our own custom python scripts can make this possible.
No braile display either I'm affraid.
And I will try to make as much documentation and help for people as I can. I will be able to focus more on this when the project is finalized.
I've also made a twitter list because of your suggestions, I have no idea how ot use twitter but I will work it out lol
I'm also thinking of scrapping the cartidge idea all together. My new idea to battle piracy is for the sonus to look for a code on the games usb stick that will only work with that particular console. This means games would all have to be downloaded or purchased from one location which could generate the codes, like a play store.
People can make games and uplaod them to the play store, and select if they want them to be free or if they want to sell them. When downloaded we generate a code to be downloaded as well. This means each Sonus would need a serial number that would be entered whenever downloading a game to make sure they get the right code to make the game work. Or alternatively we will also have an automated phone system for non-internet users who can order games to be delivered on a usb stick with the code already on it.
What are our thoughts on this idea, I believe it would be easier from my side and it puts all the library of games in one place for easy shopping. Its also an easier distribution system to publish your games rather than advertising and marketing them yourselves.
please let me know what you think, thank you guys
