BitKit2 is a JAMMA FPGA platform for accurately playing arcade classics, featuring Bluetooth for wireless updating. Compared to the original BitKit, the BitKit2 features a more powerful FPGA chip and 4x flash storage!
Firmware update #30: 7/24/2023, support for Tron, Wacko, and Ponpoko games have been added.
MCR games features:
- Horizontal standard resolution interlaced 512 x 480
- Switch Menu to horizontal via Options -> Ssytem -> Mode Setting
- When in horizontal mode, the game menu will only display horizontal games
Gray/Brown color levels can be adjusted in-game settings between a few presets. If the Tapper bar floor is too dark on your monitor, adjust the Gray level. If the brown hues are too dark in Timber, adjust the Brown level (also works for the wooden bar and other browns in Tapper).
These MCR games are interlaced, which some monitors don't handle well. Usually, older analog types are fine, however, late-model digital monitor chassis may have some flicker. I've had good luck testing on a 19" Vision Pro (Kortek), but mileage may vary.
