Pictures like front, back, chips inside like mm3, open your catridge, scan it, and send me pictures... order would be: picture of front art, picture of front back, picture of inside front chips, picture of back inside chips!! Then we can learn more about nes hardware with explanations of connections and chips! if you like my project send me a email or post here... I need support of you because i have only 5 nes roms then i wanna have pictures of all.... pictures have format of scan, like 700 dpi, etc. formats specification will arrive more later when project is supported for nesdev world.....

kevtris has a lot of pictures and descriptions of cart boards on his site, you could link there or maybe ask to use copies of his pics.

http://tripoint.org/kevtris/mappers/mappers.html

Most carts will look the same inside, except markings on the rom and some board revisions. There are some different 3rd-party boards sometimes though, Acclaim ones that had no soldermask or gold plating, and I seem to remember seeing a Konami one that had blue soldermask. Usually a normal mapper though.

I know of a few people who've worked on scanning the labels of all the carts. In a high quality format that's a huge amount of data for any website, heheh.

These files have a list of the board/mapper types, if that helps any.

I don't know of any more pics of board scans (I have seen a site for SNES pcb scans somewhere though).

The problem with that board table is that it covers only American and European games. A similar list with Japaneese game would be needed.
I already scanned my Just Breed box, card and PCB.
You can get them here :

Thanks for the scans. Its about time we knew what type of board Just Breed uses for save purposes. It uses EKROM, which Gemfire also uses. This means that there is 8KB of RAM on the board. MMC5 games with S-RAM are rather rare, so I wonder if the other NES cartridges with more than 8KB would also work, with saving.

Yeah, Just Breed has 8kb SRAM.
This is a reason why build a japaneese boardtable would be fair, so such questions wouldn't be in the darkness scince at least one people submitted the board name and caracteristics.

For instance, I've heard that Final Fantasy I and II uses a particular board with two batteries for both games and that it's name was probably HVC-SVROM, however this was only a supposition and nothing is really confirmed ? Now, what is the truth ? Only a user-contribuable list could tell us. Post scans of boards could increase reliability and depht.
