Re: Which discrete mapper has both CHR and PRG RAM?

Re highjacking: They aren't going away. CMOS EPROMS are. But Flash is the new tech and I don't see them going OOP for a while. 2KB sizes and such, yeah, never again. 32KB+ you'll be fine. Socketed ROM days are numbered. The die plans of most Chinese manufacturers are all going surface mount. Will y...

Re: Which discrete mapper has both CHR and PRG RAM?

What do you mean? The NES's hardware (CPU, PPU, etc?) or cartridges/mappers? There are already clones, flashcarts, and reproductions of all that available for purchase today. Unless I don't understand what you're referring to, there's already been a resurgence... Resurgence of the ORIGINAL technolo...

Re: Which discrete mapper has both CHR and PRG RAM?

Oops, yep, sorry about that. Fixed. :shock: Thank you for the comment. It's like everything else. Whatever you work at the better you get. I just have more interest in the hardware. :D I have seen some great advancements in emulators over the years and I know they are invaluable for testing, they ju...

Re: Which discrete mapper has both CHR and PRG RAM?

But I'm not interested in playing with the hardware. Funny, I'm the exact opposite. I would rather mess around with the hardware, but I have tremendous respect for those who work with the software. Maybe when you are getting closer to working out bugs and want to start heading down the hardware dev...

Re: New NES homemade hardware, the Super 8

I support all hardware efforts of this sort. More working knowledge of hardware can NOT be a bad thing!
I placed my order today for the RGB version. :D

Re: New CIC Clone by Krikzz available (AVRCICZZ)

I tried it and (as expected) it work perfectly on my NES. For those using universal programmer (I use GQ-4x) with software that can't open ELF production file and need to manually set the fuse, here are the required fuses settings: Ext.Clock; Start-Up time: 14CK+ 0ms; [CKSEL=00 SUT=00] I have both ...

Re: SOROM Battery question.

Thank you, worked like a charm. Yes, I have moved the smaller sized ram chips off the board and replaced them with one 32K chip. I also have cut the traces to the 2nd chip and mounted the hex inverter there and ran jumper wires on the back. I think this is much cleaner than having jumper wires hangi...

SOROM Battery question.

If I wanted the first Ram chip to have battery backup, is it just a matter of connecting the power pin from the battery?
Sorry for the newb question. I just have a bunch of SOROM boards I'm trying to convert to SXROM boards.
Thank you for any help.
