Similarly if you have a set of ROMs, you might write a script to tell you all the ones with the battery bit set.

I wrote one for this purpose to set up my PowerPak saves.


Edit: Python scripts were later disallowed on this forum. Uploading a ZIP with what I think was the original script.

Restricting the Bootgod search to just USA you have all of the non-prototype ones except:
Base Wars: Cyber Stadium Series

I dunno if it would be worth separating by region? (Elite, Final Fantasy III, Ys, etc.)

Added Base Wars, missed that one.

My interest was for PowerPak as well. I hadn't considered writing a code to look for the "battery" bit in the header. Clever.

Still trying to figure out which NTSC games won't play because of unsupported mappers / etc without testing them all. ?

There are mapper compatibility lists available. You could similarly use a script to compare mapper numbers against that. (Doesn't account for partial compatibility, though, and of course you have to choose which mapper sets to use.)

I'd be pretty surprised if someone hasn't already made a list, though.

When I made PowerMappers I tested compatibility with every game in the PAL/NTSC game library, the results are at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing (switch tabs at bottom for USA region results).

(It is possible that the list is outdated in some parts. Also it only accounts for PowerMappers. E.g., MMC5 is supported by loopy's mappers.)

Thanks you, that's very helpful.

I'm also concerned about Konami mappers and Unlicensed mappers (Tengen)...

EDIT, Oh, I see a solution.

"Alien Syndrome and all the Mapper 206 games should be set to Mapper 4 for the PowerPak."

RacerMate Challenge II has battery-backed CHR RAM. But Tengen's output was mostly arcade to console ports, and arcade games of the time were short enough not to need battery save. It wasn't until things like the link mode of Dance Dance Revolution that arcade games saved a campaign longer than one credit.

There's also an Everdrive N8 compatibility list that seems to have a PowerPak column as well:

That's a perfect list. Great. Got everything I need now. Amazing how few games don't work that I care about....Lagrange Point, Just Breed, Perman 1+2, Pizza Pop!, Spartan X 2...and that's about it.

This list is a little bit outdated, especially when it comes to save states.
