Re: More NSF Requests

Original (?) music from the Handy Boy 11-in-1 Plug'n Play console.

Re: More NSF Requests

New NSF from game that became emulated just last week. Apparently, all songs are taken from other sources, though I can only identify a couple of them: #1 Kamen Rider #3 Airwolf #5 Stage 1 from Big Challenge! Dogfight Spirit #8 Thexder The sound driver is the biggest mess that I have ever seen in my...

Re: More NSF Requests

The same, but now with all songs and sound effects (songs #1-#97) and PCM recordings (songs #98-#115). I used the MMC5's DAC to retain the samples' full eight bits of resolution. Uses NSF2's IRQ timer feature when available.

Re: X1-017 testing

Why are interrupts failing on the real cartridge?

Also, you'll want to set the PRG-RAM size in that test ROM's NES 2.0 header to 8 KiB.

Re: X1-017 testing

TL;DR: You can rewire a 128 KiB mapper 552 (i.e. actual Taito) board to run as mapper 82, but you cannot rewire a 256 KiB mapper 552 board to run as oversize mapper 82 in a way that runs the aforementioned translation, because $7FEA..C bit 6 is not connected to any ASIC pin. For this reason, 256 KiB...

Re: X1-017 testing

All I care about is having one hardware-accurate definition, which 552 provides. I am perfectly willing to accomodate mistaken or fantasy mappers as long as they are clearly marked as such, but do not insist on their existence enough to reverse any "grrr" wiki edits.

Done on the wiki.

Edit: I went ahead and put in a particular "oversize" definition of mapper 082 as required by the existing translation of SD Keiji Blader.

Re: X1-017 testing

I have also updated 82to552 conversion utility to correctly handle the "SD Keiji Blader" translation that I found on Romhacking.net . I assume that this is what you are referring to? Edit: reuploaded, because an error message was not printed correctly before. Note that the "SD Keiji Blader" translat...

Re: X1-017 testing

The glitchiness in the recent NintendulatorNRS build is partially my fault, because the game writes $FF to all three IRQ registers and thus causing IRQs all the time, which disturbs the VRAM update code. I have removed the IRQ emulation for now, since it's not used by any game anyway, and uploaded a...

Re: X1-017 testing

Works fine for 128KB prg, but not for 256KB. Of course not; there is no finalized definition on what an oversize 256 KiB mapper 82 ROM would look like, so I don't know how to convert that. Current NintendulatorNRS supports mapper 552 with the correct [..ABCDEF] bank order, if you need something to ...

Re: Jaleco SS 88006

That is very nice that it "works without problems", but what register is connected to that pin? How are you setting the value of pin 26? That's what we're wondering about. It's obvious for PRG A18, but it's not obvious for CHR A18.

Re: Jaleco SS 88006

The same way as the VRC4 does, I would assume; the high nibble having five bits.
