Re: Super Famicom Box (Hotel Box)

The coin box connects to the 3 pin connector. If you simply connect the middle pin to ground, you'll get a coin inserted. About The CMP, if you replace 02 with 01 or 00 (can't remember) you won't be able to access KEY after using Central Administration. If you access central administration, the menu...

Re: SNES won't turn on 2

wram=work ram. how the console will "work" if you disable it?

I have never seen a dead wram. Most of the time is the cpu. Very rarely it's a broken trace.

Re: Mario Chip 1 sram A15

How do you dinstinguish between "doesn't work don't know why" and "doesn't work because A15"? To determine whether a Super FX game needs SRAM A15, try running it on a GSU with only 32K of RAM. If it runs, then it doesn't need A15. I just tried starfox 2 on GSU-1 with only 32k of sram. It does the s...

Re: Mario Chip 1 sram A15

I'm pretty sure Star Fox 2 requires either a GSU-1 or GSU-2 and won't work with MARIO CHIP 1. Thank you. From your link by wuertymodo: "I'm looking at a Star Fox 1 PCB now which has the MARIO chip, and I can confirm that there is no oscillator on the board, so it uses the cart edge clock signal. Al...

Mario Chip 1 sram A15

I found a schematic stating that pin 97 is sram A15. It's NC, so I connected sram A15 there, but it's not working. So i have starfox 1+2 on an 29f016. i use A20 to manually select the game. This flash is connected inside a super famicom box (the hotel console). Starfox 1 works, but for starfox 2 i o...

Re: X1-017 testing

So how should I rewire a 256K PRG? Right now, you don't. The existing 256KB translation relies on a definition that's incompatible with the existing hardware. You'll have to add several extra parts: https://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?p=246438#p246438 [/quote] Thank you for your answer. I'll wa...

Re: DSi unlaunch (bootcode exploit)

Hmmmm, and the problem might be yet elsewhere, the main reason that makes you think that it's wifi related is the nonworking system settings stuff, right? You are correct. And yes, I've also tested it with different known working wi-fi boards. In the past i even replaced the wifi connector and it d...

Re: DSi unlaunch (bootcode exploit)

Might be wifi firmware related. The launcher boots up despite of wifi firmware errors - but refuses to start games if that error had occurred. For DWM-W024 wifi boards you would need the newer wifi firmware revision, 00000002.app. But you should normally have that in v1.4. If the bug occurred only ...

Re: DSi unlaunch (bootcode exploit)

I know it's unrelated, but please help me. I have an 1.4E dsi that gives me an error on every app (no, it's not the wifi module that it's damaged). Using a herdmod I have installed unlaunch. In unlaunch all the apps work, only the settings give an error, but only when i go to internet->connection se...

Re: DSi unlaunch (bootcode exploit)

That is odd. I had added that warning in unlaunch v1.5, hoping to find with people who have old firmware from 2008 (ie. firmware v1.2 or older). Mostly because I want to ask them if they have the same system files as later consoles (eg. font and wifi firmware). What I am doing is checking the file ...

Re: My MMC3 conversion pack

Mario 2J was released only on FDS. It was ported by loopy on mmc3. The game was later released on snes as "the lost levels". Maybe Infidelity will convert to mmc3 Mario Bros and Yoshi. When you say that will be more complexed to put all the games on a cart it's because you'll have to use a 2mx8 epro...
