Re: FMV on NES (dream I had)

That would be a nice proof of concept of an impossible thing to do back on the old days.
I also think that working with the limitations of a console is a great achievement.
Would the use of extra circuitry not available on the console's hayday be considered "cheating"?

Re: FMV on NES (dream I had)

Maybe if it was possible to swap some chunks of data to the CHR ROM/RAM from an SD card, some interesting animations could be created.
I'm probaly wrong, but I think the mapper would not be of much relevance in this case.

Re: Apparently the SMS is better than everything

Well, just a few years ago I was able to forget my "heartache" about SMS and found how cool it is (was?). I just feel I really lost a big amount of fun time discussing which was better instead actually playing the games. The fact is all consoles have its pros and cons. Back in the old days, when the...

Re: Adapter to properly support 3.3V carts

If you wasnt to fix single cartidge, probably the fastest and cheapest idea is: 1) Cut a line using sharp knife through the pads you want to modify (probably all pads if you are lazy) https://obrazki.elektroda.pl/5354168900_1543009809_thumb.jpg 2) Solder 100R 0603 resistors for all lines (except GN...

But I don't see how this would change things usefully in this specific context.
Neither I do.
The PPU's seem to have not being touched.
I got some pictures to try to explain better:
PPUs

CPU + Crystal

Hope this helps to properly understand what's up.

Re: SNES video problem

l_oliveira's advice was for modifying a Famiclone with a switchable PAL/NTSC PPU, not a SNES... Yes, in part of that thread it was, but that was so "dynamic" that we ended talking about SNES, MegaDrive, N64 and even PS1 transcodification. If I remember correctly you helped a lot too, with explanati...

Re: SNES video problem

How is the SNES syncing? It looks like you may need to adjust the cable to use Luma Sync. My bad! I forgot to say I was using composite video. In the transcodification, the main Crystal was changed for a 21.15366 one and this circuit was added to the BA6592F: 1K 2K2 GND <--/\/\/---+----\/\/\---> Li...

Re: SNES video problem

:lol: Actually it's part of the Contra 3 opening. Maybe I should ask holy water in Castlevania to try to fix the issue. :lol: This snes' case really needs a good wash, since doesn't just have that urine color, but also the smell. :( I'll try to add thermal paste to the 7805 before changing it.

Re: SNES video problem

Interesting. I discovered I added a little information to that thread but that was kind of poorly written, so I tried to clarify. I'll take a look on the 7805. I'll also try to get a proper crystal and undo the transcodification. Would an 74'74 plugged on the reset switch be enough to turn on/off th...

Re: Wavy Lines on NES-001 - but there's something more to it...

Sorry, I only saw this now, after over a year. :oops:
It was the on/off switch.
I think it sounds better and avoid confusion. :-D

Re: SNES video problem

Weird!!
I just removed the top shield to take a look.
It's on for about 30 minutes and this is what I've got:
tvtime-output-094420.png
Now I think it may be somethig that the shield is touching, since it's modified to work in PAL-M color system.

SNES video problem

Hello again. I got an "dead" snes as a gift. The PCB is a SHVC-CPU-01, S-CPU is a 02, S-PPU1 01 and S-PPU2 02. I changed the fuse and it turned on, but the video signal wasn't geting sync. I exchanged the electrolitic capacitors of the video outputs and the image looked fine, but after a few minutes...

Re: Any ideas on how to fix this SNES controller?

Thanks!
I'll try to find the Caikote 44 and also the dome.
I'll report back as soon as I have something.
