I have a NP Fire Emblem edition on the way.

The Freq module in the larger Sanni models I guess help with the timings on this and the BSX and SA1.

The mini SNES reader is absent the freq module, however is SUPPOSED to work via the dongles I tossed together.

I cant wait to test.

Arduino pin D5/PE3 must go to clock on cart and clock gen.. Clock gen MUST be included. it would appear to be always on. I don't quite understand why a switch is attached to Sanni cart reader.... CLK 0 switch on full size sanni does nothing? If you were to actually disable NP would not unlock.. "Stuck in Hirom power cycle cart" would keep occurring. Nilton seems to speak Portuguese in his video describing use with NP, so this is a detail I may have lost in translation.

I will be reworking the dongle D5/PE3 cart CLK to include the freq generator.

I may have to just redesign the mini snes PCB to include it.. This function is too important to leave off IMHO
