Oh I'm sorry, again I'm writing something I have in my memory and don't tripple check in reality if that's correct... :( I was talking about a SMB rom hack (DX somehting) but now I tested it and it's writing SxROM (non standard). But I see that no-standard is only the nonstandard PRG size, otherwise...

Thanks for the answer, luckily the IPS patch expands PRG only. So exchanging the RAM for CHR on an UNROM board should work?
I can see that 6264 is pin compatible with 27C064, so it shouldn't be a problem...

Nestopia states "non-standard NROM") [EDIT: not true!]

NROM more than 40kB possible?

Many of the rom-hacks for NROM games expand the filesize of the original rom.
Is there a way to expand an NROM-256 board to accept more than 32kB PRG and 8kB CHR? Or is it possible to use UxROM board for mapper 0 roms?
Thanks in advance!

Although I agree with Kevtris, I must say that 80sFREAK sold me a couple of xtals and PPUs and the transaction and comunication was pleasant, reasonable and VERY friendly. So he doesn't deserve to be called a dick.

Tried you demo with a devNROM cart on my keyboard famiclone (from this entry ). The mouse behaved weird, I could move the cursor in Y direction only, and the small figure can be moved right when moving in X direction. I don't know if that info can help, let me know if I should be more specific or if...

Wow this app is awesome! I just tried that and it felt like a freaking 8-bit wii controller! Didn't knew that the lightgun is able to scan movement like that! Nice!

I have tried many different things with it, but so far, only colour screen can be seen. I don't have a clue what can be wrong... but I doubt it's the dirty connector (was my first idea), all pins are looking okay. But on RESET press, the computer behaves differently than a working one... like it's s...
