Re: VS. Excitebike Mapper Hack?

There was a guy who had done vs smb and i thought several other vs games and had patches up on a personal site. Have you run across that guy? IIRC excitebike was on the list, being either done or in progress. I remember the VS duck Hunt and VS SMB which I believe where from that person. Duck Hunt w...

Re: All Night Nippon Super Mario Bros. (ANNSMB) MMC3 Port. and disassembly

Which version of the .FDS dump of ANN is correct for applying that v0.8 Mapper4 patch please? It's for a one off cartridge I'm making for another forum acquaintance. I don't have any pcb's that support the CHR ram of Mapper 159 asks of the .95 version so I'm sticking to Mapper 4 to use the MMC3 boar...

All Night Nippon FDS to NES conversion?

Hey All,

I was looking around for the ANN conversion from the FDS and all I found
was a poorly hacked SMB 1 without any of the major changes like
the end screen or level swaps from SMB 2j. Anyone know of a patch?

Thanks,

Shawn

VS. Excitebike Mapper Hack?

Hey All, Is there a patch to convert the Mapper 99 VS. Excitebike to anything more common? I've read about some info regarding an MMC1 hack but I think that was just for adding savesates to a hacked vanilla excitebike and not the actual VS version. I'm looking to be able to play the VS version on re...

Re: Hardware test program for Genesis Justifier, Menacer and\or ALG GAMEGUN?

In the end I rerouted the needed componants on the ALG orginal pcb and converted it to a player 2 justifier. Finding the proper light sensor for the justifier for was a hell of a task as well. Took months to figure out that a SHARP IS485E was the right part and a drop in replacement for the sensor. ...

Re: Atari 2600 Miniature Golf

Any chance you would port the 2600 titles "Shooting Arcade" or "Sentinel" to the SNES for use with the SuperScope? That would be amazing. I don't know if you also work with anything from the Atari 7800 machine but "Alien Brigade" or the 7800 version of "Sentinel" would be awesome on the SNES using t...

Re: Hardware test program for Genesis Justifier, Menacer and\or ALG GAMEGUN?

Does anyone here know of a proper solution to replace the light sensor for the Justifier guns? I've been told it could very well be a custom part that is actually a phototransistor with a built in amp? I have tried many different phototransitors that have been suggested to me and I also built one am...

Oops! Well bad math on my part. That is way too much work then. I'm not pissing around trying to route that many address lines. The game isn't that interesting. :)

Re: 8k to 32k SNES VRAM schematic

Assuming, for the moment, that you mean "cart save RAM" when you wrote "VRAM" ... LoROM carts connect extra address lines in order, skipping A15. (So a 2KiB RAM is connected to A0 through A10; 8 KiB to A0-A12; 32 KiB to A0-A14; 128 KiB to A0-A14 and then A16 and A17) HiROM carts connect address lin...

8k to 32k SNES VRAM schematic

Hey All, Where would the extra address lines need to be routed to expand the VRAM from 8k to 32k? Would it be different on lorom VS hirom? The 8k footprint being 28pin is nice and a little easier for placement but I was also considering if a 2k could be replaced with a 32k as well? I have a 1a1m lor...

Re: Hardware test program for Genesis Justifier, Menacer and\or ALG GAMEGUN?

That's really weird. There's nothing obvious about the schematic that would make it obviously incompatible with both the Justifier and Menacer - there just aren't that many ways for a lightgun to work, given that the Genesis only supports "capture" on the TH pin. I was told that the LM311 leans to ...

Re: Hardware test program for Genesis Justifier, Menacer and\or ALG GAMEGUN?

I'm just gonna covert this to a player 2 "pink" justifier gun I think. Clearly after all this testing and research the American Laser Games GAMEGUN is not compatible with justifier or menacer games at all. I'm happy this is now at least "out there" to discredit the rumors and false claims that it co...
