Re: Gimmick (FC) Ending Music

Could someone with more patience than me look in the PROG-ROM to see if that track's starting address is called from any point? This isn't a matter of "patience", it's more or less impossible to prove that a given piece of software doesn't have a bug. If you can demonstrate that a bug exists that p...

Re: Gimmick (FC) Ending Music

I've never had that happen. After the ending I get silence, as seen in this video of me playing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZX6DYe3ffU (I've beaten it many times. I've also played through a repro of the NES version, and it did the same.) "Strange Memories of Death" does not appear outside ...

Gimmick (FC) Ending Music

Gimmick! is one of my favorite games. I've 1cc'ed it many times and gotten the "good ending". For those that have also done this, have you ever, under some circumstances, had the track "Strange Memories of Death", which is supposedly unused but is included in the sound test, play after "Good Night" ...

3rd Party Ricoh RP2C02G-0 for PPU

If I can find a Chinese vendor for NOS Ricoh RP2C02G-0 chips, would there be any trouble with using one in an NES/FC for PPU?

Compatible RGB PPUs

Is it true that the only Nintendo PPU's that are candidates for an RGB mod for the NES/FC are the following:

RP2C03B
RC2C03B
RC2C03C

I've read places that RP2C04-000X will work if you combine it with "other circuitry", but no details are available. Can anyone speak to these 2 points definitively?

I made a youtube vid on how I do it only a week or so ago... This is the connector I use from Mouser . It snaps right in to the hole where the RF jack sticks through, and has a similar grey color so it looks like it was almost meant to be there. The RF modulator is super easy to remove, I explain h...

NES Top Loader TRRS Modding Guide?

I'd like to mod my top loader NES with a TRRS (tip-ring-ring-sleeve) 3.5mm jack that would allow for dual mono audio and composite video out of 1 jack. I'd like to remove the RF jack and install this in its place. Does anyone know of a guide for this? I'm also looking for a mouser/digikey part numbe...
