Re: NES Maker (for VTxx machines)

Hi,

Sorry to bump an old topic. Today i bought the white arcade for my son. I want to put some "original" games on it like Mario etc. I've ordered the CH341 SPI programmer. I've downloaded some ROMS and used the tool for making the ROM. I've installed nintendulator and when i start the ROM i get "Selected ROM has no CH ROM or CH RAM". If i load the ROM directly from source it runs in Nintendulator.

I'd like to flash the white 240 in 1 to some of the "nicer" games. Can someone point out for me what i am doing wrong ?

Nintendulator != NintendulatorNRS

Hi to all, this is my first post, just to share some infos about another vt369 device owned by my little nephew.
Here are some pics:

I've pulled off the flash that is a SOIC-16 W25Q64FVFIG and dumped it, here is a rom dump:

rom.bin https://mega.nz/file/BgRVEa4b#yy5uRXcvx ... AKPH6cDW20

and there is the same with ines header for testing it in NintendulatorNRS:

rom.nes https://mega.nz/file/QoYlmIDB#wXUK17fGF ... qLwME4_oHE

I've tryed to make a custom rom with timschuerewegen's NES Maker 1.7.0, using "My Arcade Retro Machine (200-in-1) [v2]" setting, and just works.
I've noticed some strange behaviours in smb3, it don't plays some pcm samples and seems that don't masks sprites when they are obstructed, like the piranha plants when they come out from pipes. I don't know if this is a known vtxx issue or maybe a sw thing caused by using a rom for different device. Some advice?

I never knew that EmuVT could run VT369 ROM files. :)

Cool, MAME had the Oplayer MGS2401A, this one is just Oplayer MGS2401. Many bytes are different, though the game list appears to be the same.

About the issues, can only comfirm the issues. With SM1, 2 and 3 the music starts "in game", title is silent. Same with the sprites, they come out of the pipes. Not a big problem, games are still playabe. (White 240in1)

Yes, you are right, I never noticed this before.
