Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

your are correct.. the ATtiny13 will function as a lock but for unlocking mappers on 3rd party snes hardware projects

the other chips will support console switching and has a gal that is used to over ride the region bit
i finally have time to work on this again this evening :)

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

I've updated my pinout to cover both consoles
also relabeled the I/O's with more generic names to hopefully avoid confusion :)
the pins are bidirectional.. OIO starts as the output and IOI starts as the input

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

Did you have a pinout for the SNES version as well? I'm guessing it's basically the same, the only question being which is which between IO0 and IO1 (pins 24 and 55 on the cart edge). Hadn't thought of using a SOIC clip. In fact, I just bought myself a SOIC test socket, so I don't really have a nee...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

jims cool, your pinout a few pages back is a dead link. Could you re-post the pinout? http://dev.betheartist.ca/blah/jcic-attiny.png I'm mostly curious whether or not the SNES key connects all of the ISP pins i believe infiniteneslives is using the side edge to connect a clip on the PCB and a SOIC ...

Re: Proof that pin #4 mod does not work

i never said segher was wrong about about anything .. this thread has nothing to do with his work. other then he reversed the instruction set for the cic. far as credibility goes my JCIC (Jims Cool integrated Circuit) is being used by infiniteneslives projects .. seems you only made one post on this...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

lol that's cool.. we would all hate to see nesdev get shutdown for encouraging video game piracy all you need to force NTSC is change 0x6 in this line to 0x9 reassemble and your good to go movlw 0x6 ; died with NTSC, fall back to PAL as a side note if someone wanted to force PAL you would change the...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

they are configured using the hex file in the key asm file it looks like this __CONFIG _EC_OSC & _WDT_OFF & _PWRTE_OFF & _MCLRE_OFF & _CP_OFF & _CPD_OFF you need an external clock to dump the chip code protect doesn't stop the chip from being flashed you hit reset to switch the region the only homeb...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

its something like the SFCB but it uses CIC's and has the normal carts SFCB also had a coin slot attachment i've seen photos of the game boards they have menu rom a GAL/PAL and some logic chips.. i don't think english menu patch's exist because the menu rom doesn't run inside an emulator.. i had to ...

famicom box is the japanese version of the m82 display unit but it holds 15 black nes style carts, has a coin slot attachment and game menu http://famicomworld.com/system/other/famicombox/ i haven't seen much info on the SFCB but the game cart's aren't the normal shape and apparently it doesn't use ...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

no i don't wanna make money back i just don't want to release a binary publicly until it has famicom box support.. but if i stop moving forward i'll release it anyway.. i don't want to be known as a data hoarder :) when you go to open a fiile your software should have a drop down with .bin selected ...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

I see you plan to sell them. Will they be "locked" or readable? Will it come with jumper instructions for the different applications? I plan to integrate this into some new cart designs I'm working on.... assuming you know the "JCIC" and "Super CIC" are different (implied) they'll be locked but tha...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

ya cart cases will be around $2 soon also.. they are $5 dollars now thought they were $4 the other day? :? i'm still waiting on my 2nd famicom box cart first stream will run.. but could end up needing the other chip to make a log if i can't crack the seeds with the info i got.. plan B =) EDIT: the 2...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

you still save $3.50 per chip.. :lol: if he released it you would save a couple cents and have more options with the JCIC that and i think people would like a chip by a developer for developers instead of something that contributed to the further destruction of nintendo carts :wink: it was cheaper t...

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

at this point people will save $3.50 a chip using the JCIC for nes
it also has a lot of extra settings :wink:

i don't want to start a pic vs. avr war.. they are both good
for my project i thought avr's would be the best option.. turned out well :D

Re: What happened with SNES CIC reverse engineering?

Is it possible once you're done, we could get a really, really detailed wiki page on the wiki to explain how it works, the algorithm, etc? I'm so curious in how this works and would love to learn how you did it, how the CIC works, and just all of that stuff. :) never thought about making a wiki pag...
