I wanted to do something that has a VGA compatible output. I also had an FPGA board lying around and a bad itch to do something useless. With the help of fpga4fun.com, various online Verilog HDL references and VGA timing information I made something that outputs a steady checkerboard picture to a VGA display. That was cool but after a short while the excitement dried out, I needed something more serious. My imagination is quite poor and in a short while I had two paddles on the screen.. And so it began.
