Portuguese -inho corresponds to Spanish -iño, correct?

I think the diminutive in spanish is -ito, no? As for the sound, "nh" in portuguese does indeed sound the same as "ñ" in spanish, but I don't think many english speakers know that, because they always get it wrong in movies and series.

it is -ito, yeah

edit: i love the sh and nh that portugese uses. i listen to a lot of MPB, so i picked up a bit of the pronunciation from that, but i am useless w/ portugese.

They have one its just not affordable when the profits need to be split.
SMB2j that retrozone sells has a MMC 3 board. And seriously, a game like this could be worth a lot. Seems like it could be a great platformer! Don't be scared to make an expensive game as long as it has great quality. The demo gives me really good hope for a great game. I wouldn't doubt buying a game like this for $50-60.

I seem to remember someone saying it was actually a subset of the FDS, as the ROM is not the MMC3 hacked version. Does anyone know for sure?

Alls I know is what has been discussed previously, and what was said previously was that SMB2j on RetroZone uses a mapper that emulates the subset of FDS that SMB2j uses. I didn't bring up that point on this thread because I have absolutely no proof and no way to get any :D

Would be great if Bunnyboy started selling those boards... I wonder how much they would cost.

Well, there's a big "MMC3" there, so I guess we have an answer.

Unless the Xilinx part is a CPLD that can be switched between FDS-subset and MMC3 by loading different fusemaps.

It's all speculation at this point, unless BunnyBoy lets the cat out of the bag. There must be something that makes this board not terribly marketable.

I think it is telling that the CPLD used has 144 macrocells. That one chip retails at $5.80 in single quantities at DigiKey.
