Re: Sealie UNROM 512 (retrousb.com)

thanks a lot for the replies.
I will give a try to support the flash saves (probably after I fix the problems with EEPROMs in Bandai games) and your patch will help definitely to test the effect of the emulation.

Sealie UNROM 512 (retrousb.com)

You might want to move that to another unused mapper slot, as 30 has been used already, by UNROM 512 . I am going to suggest moving over to Mapper 31. I have a couple of questions about UNROM-512, which I post here because I have found no other thread with the answer. I hope rainwarrior does not ge...

Re: 絵描衛門 / Dezaemon PCB scan

@naruko: I've documented the 32k SRAM in MESS. thanks a lot!
I'm not fully sure how to verify that the saving/loading on different banks work (I hate dezaemon editor :) ), but FF1+2 works fine in MESS so I would expect this to work too...

Re: シルヴァ・サーガ / Silva Saga PCB scan

it took a lot of time, but I managed to implement per-game SRAM support when loading from software lists
this finally allows Silva saga to be playable in MESS (and I will soon use it for a couple of SNES games which need it as well)

thanks a lot for the info

Re: 2A03 Puritans Album (source code)

FYI latest MESS (from svn repo) supports emulation of this PCB, even if our APU emulation is not 100% accurate yet (but recent progresses on the MAME core will soon allow for some improvements)
I have followed your choice of mapper 30, of course, since it does not appear to be used...

Re: Family Picross

I loved the demo and I can't wait to see a new demo or (even better) a release. going back to replay a bit your old demo, however, I think that also puzzle 1 admits multiple solutions: isn't this valid too? http://mamedev.emulab.it/etabeta/fast/files/0000_1295945055.png good luck with your work, any...

Re: カラオケスタジオ

thanks for looking into this. for a couple of weeks I'm busy with real life, but then I will go back to improve MESS with your findings (including the ones on Dezaemon)

Re: Bandai FCG series

interesting read. thanks a lot :)

I had stumbled upon that website, but I'm quite busy with real life and I still haven't got enough time to try those codes :)

p.s. take your time with Karaoke Studio, there is no hurry

Re: About MMC3

Who knows what random crap someone stuffed in afterwards? That 768KB dump is a bad dump: http://bootgod.dyndns.org:7777/profile.php?id=3745 says it should be only 256KB. Anyway, the vast majority of NES games should be a power of 2 of PRG and a power of 2 of CHR. There is at least 1 mapper out that...

Re: Bandai FCG series

mmm... I'm getting an headache trying to fix EEPROMs in MESS (they don't work in MegaDrive either, so it might be a core problem) do you have any idea of what these screens say? (they are from Datach DBZ, with possibly broken 24C02 in the base Datach unit) http://mamedev.emulab.it/etabeta/fast/files...

Re: MMC5 problems...

uh, thanks for rectifying my mistake. I did not know about that level: if it is the level I think, I did not get there in my latest tests... I will check in the weekend
