Ok stupid question time. I apologize in advance. I am able to burn Zelda Link to the Past E, Parallel Worlds, and Goddess of Wisdom and they play and the game will save the file name i.e. Link, however the game play will not save. In all 3 games, once I power down and turn the game back on or reset, the game will act like Link is still in his bed. Is this because I am using a 4 mb cartridge? If I order a 8mb or 12mb cart from http://www.infiniteneslives.com/snessupplies.php will my solve my problem?

Yes I might seem new but I'm not that new! Heh. I have used this same cart and have been able to play and save data in Chrono Trigger, Super Mario World and Brutal Super Mario World. Fire Emblem Thracia 776 also seems to save data. The weird thing about the 3 Zelda's is that I can start a new game, name the character and the game will save that name. I.e I can turn off the game, and turn it back on and my character name (Link, AAAAA ect ect) stays. However any amount of time in any of the games, items found, heart containers found will not stay.

I guess I should of checked this first, but Zelda Parallel Worlds and Goddess of Wisdom do not work in ZNES on my pc either. I have downloaded a few versions, and manually patched some .ips files and still get the same problems. Is it possible that the versions online are corrupt? Or did they never manually save the game and required save states to play. Also when I start the game in ZSNESW it shows that it is a "bad rom" as well as chksumfail.

ZSNES and SNES9x are so far off the bottom of the spectrum of accuracy... you should test with bsnes=higan or one of its myriad forks.

Ok progress! So I updated Zelda Parallel Worlds to 1.1 and after a few days of Googling found this viewtopic.php?f=12&t=8705&hilit=Goddess. Ironically enough I found the answer to my problem on this site. I grabbed the sword and immediately saved the game, and it saved on a 4mb cartridge. Looks like it is standard function in this game. I am going to flash the cartridge with Goddess of Wisdom, grab the sword and see what happens. I guess the original ZPW was just too hard for me and I never made it far enough to even get close to the sword. Sorry to bug everyone, but I think I have the SNES side almost down pat.

So Ive started to rack up titles that I have successfully burned, and think it might help someone else in the future if I post a bunch of games and their results on a INL fllash cart and the Retro Program which usually auto expands files if needed. *No matter what anyone says, Retro Prog auto pads the rom so don't waste your time padding!*

If you wrap your table with [code] before and [ / code] after, it will preserve your formatting.

(omit the spaces, otherwise phpBB would have actually converted my text into preformatted monospace text)

Heh. Thanks lidnariq it looks alot better, but could still use a bit more cleanup. I will try to keep updating as I try more cartridges and maybe ask a couple more questions if they arise.

Added a few more games to the list. After a week of browsing the forums, I kind of think that this topic might belong in say NES flash carts or SNES section than Repro. If any of the mods think the topic should be moved, I wont get my feelings hurt.

Added a few new games, added a list of bad games. If anyone using INL.com SNES Hi/Lo ROM reproduction PCB/flash boards get the games I list off as bad to work, let me know!

Hi,

When it comes to cartridge based games, I think you should do a little more research on chips etc. for the games you're looking into. Anything that needs a DSP-1 or above will not work on INL carts, unless he's fixed since the last time I messed with them. I know hacks and/or games that use the "true" special chips like Mario RPG etc. do not work at all. The Star Ocean hack works because someone hacked the game to run without the required chip.

Attached is the spreadsheet I used to help create games from donor carts, but it also helps to identify what chips are used for each game.

Super Mario World The Lost Adventure - check the rom you're using.
Super Mario Kart (Retro Prog says will never work) - DSP-1 game
Super Mario Kart R (Retro Prog says never work) - DSP-1 game
Super Mario Land 3 NES Hack - check the rom you're using.
Super Mario RPG (Retro Prog says never work) - Special Chip game
Super Mario RPG Armageddon - Special Chip game
Fire Emblem Mystery of the Emblem - Should work (http://www.jcretail.ca/fire-emblem-myst ... he-emblem/)

That's quite an impressive list. I would love to openly discuss the roms I have not been able to get to work. I think posting the link on where I downloaded them from would help out immensely, however I don't want to do this until I get a 100% ok answer. Maybe a mod/admin might pop in this thread and give an official yeah/nay on posting links for my sources on non licensed Nintendo games (hacks/homebrews) as well as English translated ports.

Links to copyright-infringing material is officially not allowed, but you can link to the patch (such as on rhdn) and/or provide a hash of the resulting image (which is enough to uniquely identify a file).

Added a few more games to the list. Added a bit more details, hopefully the chart did not get confusing now. If this information is helpful, maybe I will move the list to the front of this thread in case someone new might be able to use it.
