Post subject:  Just finished my UOROM devcart! =D

Hi all!

I'm just posting this because I'm very very happy that my UOROM cart worked so well. I got a konami UNROM cart and extend it to use 256KB of ROM, making it an UOROM cart. I also installed a mirroring switch.

Here are some pictures of the mess:

This is my "workbench" after I just finished the board

The back of it

The cart on my NES (there is no way that will fit a game case)

Image
It runs regular 128KB UNROM games

Image
As well as 256KB UOROM games!

I'd like to thank many of you from the NESDEV forums, for explaining me about the mirroring switch, tips on rewiring and all that. Also, big thanks to No Carrier, who helped me obtain the fantastic desoldering iron, that made the task of removing the chips MUCH easier!

I'm now on the process of designing a game to run on this board, and I just hope I'll finish this one! =D

Congrats, very clean looking job.

Remember if you finish a UOROM game, I've got the new boards to support it. :)

Thanks. It's still not as clean as I expected it to be! I'm just happy that it works! I feel much more confident to make other carts now (since I'm sure of the kind of rewiring that works). My next attempt will probably be a TKROM. I really like that board!

Yeah... strangely enough, newspapers here in Brazil tend to be written in portuguese! =D

Sorry for not replying, but this was a long time ago and I don't have my notes from back then, or the time to analyze the board and make new notes...
