Progress - Update March 2017
First batch recorded from 29th January to 28 March. 2 months in total. Due to this beeing a new automated collection to record it didn't pass within 1 month as we pre-calculated. We expect the next 3 chips to go much smoother, and possibly in June 2017 everything should be settled (1month pr. chip for the CGSC collection. HVSC 50 to 66 is done already!)

We're still working on the release and mirroring the newly finalized HVSC recordings, but so far things are moving slowly for database release and mirror hosting. We'll get there, don't worry!


In progress: MOS6581R2 NTSC - CGSC #133 - 20 of 11104 tunes.
Pending: MOS6581R3, MOS6581R4.

DONE: CSG8580R5 NTSC - CGSC #133.

Progress - Update February 2017
As we are finishing up last bits and pieces for the textual database online for the already recorded HVSC #50-66, we are currently recording the CGSC collection for all 4 chips in NTSC mode. We have not started contacting possible mirror hosts yet, we would probably wait until we get all numbers in for the amount of data to be presented, both HVSC and CGSC collection completed.

In progress: CSG8580R5 NTSC - CGSC #133 - 4518 of 11104 tunes.
Pending: MOS6581R2, MOS6581R3, MOS6581R4.
