Re: Back-loading NES

Kevtris, you wouldn't be talking about this would you? http://arstechnica.com/guides/tweaks/nintendo.ars I ended up writing that, and it's not all that bad of a design. However, shortly after I put up that article, I found out that the U-connector is now for sale, which really would have removed th...

Well, basically, if the NEX is a poor famiclone, and even the clones have some outstanding problems, what are we to do? I'd like to get into nabbing a few famicom games, but I'd like some convenience in using them. My NES is in great shape, but even so it's flaky. It's frustrating liking old system...

Kevtris, Why do you have to put 470 ohm resistors in series with the data lines in some cartridge adapters to stop sprite corruption? For instance in my homemade NES/Famicom adapter. http://www.54.org/condev/FC_NES_Conv/FC_NES_Conv%20004.jpg Thanks I"m not 100% sure why, it seems to have something ...

The NES "emulator" I wrote for CopyNES was fully debugged and then I added some PPU emulation so that it should be able to (slowly) run some games. I think that the "emulation" feature should be called "NES on NES emulation", as it brings to mind "girl on girl action". Little things like that might...

Hmmm... I looked at the pics. The chip marked "PPU" is really an NES on a chip. The chip marked "CPU" is not the CPU. I'm not quite sure what it is... possibly something related to the controllers... None of its pins connect to the cart connectors. If you look, both the CPU and PPU pins on the cart...

Update: CopyNES PCB's arrived today!! I am waiting on 1 more part before I will take orders... the special 40 pin header thingers that attach the CopyNES board to the NES-CPU board. This new style header lets you unplug the copyNES board for testing and such. It won't be too much longer now. The NES...

My collection is not yet complete so here are the games from the previous link that I was able to test: After Burner - garbage on screen Castlevania 3 - dark green screen Gauntlet (licensed) - minty green screen Gemfire - solid black scre...

Yep, should have realized that. I guess my original question pertains to the Famicom then. Does the 60-pin connector have the same weird pitch as the NES does, or is it standard? I think famicom connector uses standard width, i made my a famicom connector by sawing-off a ISA connector, and the cart...
