You've got to be miscounting pins.

I tried switching the mirroring, and using D3, D4 and D5 and it was worse. So its def D2 and the graphics are all a mess. Im thinking the chip I got was over erased. Gonna chuck it and try again. I hate when i waste all that time for nothing.

And I gotta figure out how my Super Mario Unlimited is working but with NO sound at all (?!) AND i gotta figure out the MHROM 161 altho i have a feelling it just might not work at all, or i have to disconnect some stuff... at least i got a better understanding now.

Ok I got it. For the CNROM-161 board, I was right the CHR chip was bad straight from the package. Swapped it, and worked. Now for the MHROM board I couldn't figure out why so I checked the pinout of the 161 I did. I saw that it controls PRGs A15 even tho i wasn't using it. I lifted pin 1 of the prg and poof worked (after I set the mirroring)

Interesting that these games when the mirroring is wrong you get a LOT of glitchy graphics not like, lets say SMB where the game works with fine the graphics but 'loads' them to the screen wrong. So all this time I was thinking those bad graphics were from a bad chip or soldering or whatever.

Anyway I learned something and isn't that the most important? :) Thanks for the help.

Then how is it this wiring diargram

PRG:
Pin 14 (GND) to 161 pin 12
CHR:
Pin 1 (A15) to 161 pin 5.

Works for CNROM-07s to make the CHR 64k when you're grounding the output pin of the 161 and a15 goes to the input? I know this cuz its worked for me.


EDIT! SUCCESS! (Kinda)

I took what you said and looked up the 161 and it made sense, so I did a check on the wiring diagram for the CNROM 256-161 and it seemed like D0 went to A13 and D1 when to A14, so using the 161 I connected D2 to A15 and boom! (I just had to set the mirroring). Great! Now ill get a better understanding of the MHROM.


I know the last post was over a year ago, but can you upload a wiring diagram of your work? I'm trying to build a Panesian game and i only got grafic garbage.

Panesian -> CNROM Conversion (mapper 3):
Bend up pin 5 and 12 of 74HC161
Connect pin 5 to D2 of PRG ROM
Connect pin 12 to A15 of CHR ROM
