MMC3A-L

Post by HVC-Man » Sun Oct 02, 2016 12:10 am

I have a copy of Super Mario Bros. 2 used to make Final Fantasy 3, it's a fairly typical early TSROM-01 board, other than the presence of an MMC3A-L mapper chip. I can snap a picture if needed.

Anyone ever run across this MMC3 version? Is it compatible with other MMC3 games? Maybe the L stands for low power like SRAM chips.

Pictures of rare hardware are always appreciated.

I only noticed the different MMC3 chip after I converted it to FF3. Should I revert it back to SMB2 for posterity? I didn't do anything with the label.

Huh, weird, NEScartDB has a Sharp-manufactured MMC3A from that exact same week: http://bootgod.dyndns.org:7777/profile.php?id=3694


I'm the wrong person to ask about posterity's sake. I guess it might be nice to revert the board and submit it (with PCB scans) to NEScartDB...
