Re: 4021 ICs dead in NES controllers. Replacements?

Hmm...makes me think that the other NES controllers I have are a ticking time bomb. Good thing 4021s are cheap and easy to find and the replacement process isn't overly difficult. Thanks for the help!

Re: 4021 ICs dead in NES controllers. Replacements?

Great. So then I could buy any IC that contains "4021" and has the correct number of pins? It doesn't matter what comes before or after the 4021 on the IC label? Secondary question.....what would cause only one of the inputs to fail? The one controller works with nearly every input. A, B, Start, Sel...

4021 ICs dead in NES controllers. Replacements?

I have two problem NES controllers, both 004s. One controller does not respond when the dpad is pressed left, and the other controller is completely "dead". Both appear to have intact traces, so I'm wondering if maybe the IC is at fault in both controllers. The chip is a HEF4021BP, which i beleive t...

Re: NES Classic Edition - Nintendo's own repro console

I'm of course talking about soldering my own JST to Wii Classic adapter like this guy did. http://i.imgur.com/3HyK0Qc.jpg But having the connection fork to the stock controller as well. When you say it is comparatively tolerant of bad routing and asking for trouble, what do you mean? If it's not goi...

Re: NES Classic Edition - Nintendo's own repro console

I managed to snag a Famicom Mini, the Japanese version of the NES Classic Edition. Like the original HVC001, it's controllers are hardwired to the console, connected via a JST 1.5mm 6 pin connector although only 4 wires are connected. The main problem is the controllers are only 3 feet long. On the ...

Re: Megaman 2 GB no bgm request

Wow, that sounds like a promising lead. The Megaman 2 GBS file can be found here: https://ocremix.org/chip/342 and the original rom for disassembly purposes can be found through a simple google search. Hopefully there is someone out there with the knowledge to do what you suggested with these files....

Re: Megaman 2 GB no bgm request

I'm not fixated on a GG code if the same effect can be done with rom hacking and an .ips patch.

I just need someone to take a look at the rom.

Re: Megaman 2 GB no bgm request

This effect can and has been done for the NES Megaman games - there are GameGenie codes that exist and work that mute the BGM but keep the sound effects intact. I asked about Megaman 2 GB, and was told they don't know the GameBoy GameGenie structure. I would be perfectly okay with a .ips patch rathe...

Re: Megaman 2 GB no bgm request

Yes. That's exactly what I'm seeking - someone who has assembly knowledge enough to develop an ips patch or knows GG enough to disable the music, but not the sound effects. I'm not sure where I'd find someone with such skills if not on this forum. Anyone know somewhere else I might be able to find s...

Re: Megaman 2 GB no bgm request

It's probably more likely it was simply the result of amateur programmers. Megaman II GB (Rockman World 2) was not developed by Capcom, but farmed out to a small developer called Biox (the other four GameBoy Megaman games were developed by Minakuchi Engineering, hence why they are so similar to one ...

Megaman 2 GB no bgm request

Hey, I know some of you guys do ROM hacking was wondering if someone could do a small request. Megaman 2 for GameBoy is a decent game, but the background music is rather awful - too high pitched and just not well done at all. I'd like to play the game with the music muted, but not the sound effects....

Extract .nsf audio from various Rockman hacks?

Hey guys, I've been putting together as much of a complete collection of Megaman/Rockman rom hacks as I can find, and a number of them use custom soundtracks. Some of these custom soundtracks are rather good, and I would like to look into the possibility of creating or if its simple enough, having s...
