[p!] in the filename indicates a pirated ROM, which means unless you're able to confirm said behaviour doesn't happen on an actual console...

I'm quite aware this game has no confirmed-valid dump, and the only confirmed-valid one is pirated, so here's what you should really focus on (IMO):

Dragon Ninja (J) [p1][!] -- mapper 222, and what looks like "crappy graphical hacks" during start-up (flickering, etc.)
Dragon Ninja (J).nes -- mapper 4
Bad Dudes (U) [!].nes -- mapper 4

I haven't looked in bootgod's database, but given what Nestopia says about the board type + mapper, I'd say this is the ONLY GAME that uses this. Is it really worth worrying about given that the real/official game is mapper 4?

Someone with the actual cart should verify the behaviour on actual hardware. No PowerPaks, no EverDrives, etc.. I'd be willing to bet the graphical anomalies happen there too, given that it's a pirate cart.

The graphical anomalies between FCEUX and Nestopia on stage 2 are very similar, by the way. Nestopia shows what appears to be "more of the tile" it's erroneously drawing across the top of the trucks (not the scanline above them) -- maybe it's a sprite, don't know, haven't looked -- but FCEUX does do mostly the same thing. But comparing two emulators isn't all that helpful when what you actually need is confirmation of what the actual game on real hardware does.

Again, I know it is pirated ROM,I just want to improve the MAPPER INFO

this game irq Imperfect.I'm trying to perfect the pirated game IRQ,FCEUX,nestopia I have from the beginning to the end of the test.


Dragon Ninja (J).nes -- mapper 4 not mapper 4,is mapper 19
Bad Dudes (U) [!].nes -- mapper 4

I hope that the discussion is perfect.not the original or pirated.

I thought p meant patched, not bootleg (and more specifically, those patches are usually to make games work properly on old inaccurate emulators, so if that's the case here then the glitching would be correct emulation).

No, [p!] stands for pirated (p) + verified (!). Verification references:


Patched versions of a game would be indicated through [fN] (fixed, where N is a number), or [hN] (hack, where N is a number). If you still doubt me, reach out to Cowering and ask him yourself. :-)

These pictures are helpful, but the chips cover too much to trace the IRQ circuit.

If you remove the chips and take a picture of the empty board, I could trace it. Of course, then you won't be able to play the cartridge anymore (unless you're skilled enough at soldering to take it apart and put it back together).

Do you have anything you could use to trace it? I use a multimeter, but someone else might be able to suggest some other tool if you don't have one of those.

Solder pots are magical for safely cleanly desoldering and resoldering DIP things, but it's a silly investment for a one-off.

Anyway, world's cheapest continuity meter: AA/R6 battery, 10kΩ resistor, headphones.

Can someone describe how this process of mapper specification works? It's complete magic to me. What do you learn from pictures like those? What would you do with the multimeter?

We know how the 74'138 and '153 and '74 and 4020 and so on work in isolation. (e.g. http://wiki.nesdev.com/w/index.php/74161 )
If we know the exact connectivity, we can tell you what's going to happen.

Based on FCEU's source, the unlabeled IC is pretty clearly a VRC2 clone again (and we know how that works, too)
