Re: super mario all star levels

FFE stands for Front Fareast, the company behind the Super Magic Card copier, which kyuusaku said was largely a clone of Bung's Game Doctor . Games were patched to work with the few mappers it supported, mostly GNROM and UOROM variants at first. Sometimes these patches needed extra space, and somet...

Re: super mario all star levels

Something different with this one. With famirom it splits it into 3 files. The chr, the prg, and a 1 kb ffe file. I have not tried this yet to see if it works, but the fact it is separating a 3rd file leads me to believe I would be wasting my time.

Re: Question about Eeproms and mappers

First off I want to say it is very hard to say where your wires are going on the chr pin/hole 24. Anyhow that wire you are using looks to be aluminum copper clad (junk wire). I could be wrong but I see no copper in the blue wire that is wide open. Some wire from china is made like crap. Just because...

Snes replacement back power jack panel. Original supplier

I am in need of one of these back panels as the plastic piece on one of my snes systems that surrounds the power is broke. I know of many retailers that sell them for about $11 shipped. That's a bit more than I like to pay :) I'm cheap lol. Anyhow where are these people buying these from? I have sco...

Re: Where to get the right eproms

Do you guys think eeproms last longer than eproms? Do eeproms suffer the same shelf life as an eprom would as far as being programmed/erased?

Re: SMB2j Reproduction ROM

I find it easier and better when you are looking for stuff like this to just get a clean copy of the original and get the patch separately and apply the patch yourself.

Re: Bad eproms that verify?

So I was able to take 2 32 zif sockets I had and cut them down and place them side by side. Luckily for me the pins in exact spot after the 1st zif socket ended 17 and other side would be 26 were unused so I had a tiny gap to work with to make a test board. It looks like crap and will probably pop a...

Re: Bad eproms that verify?

I only erase if it is needed. These chips are listed as "new". They are suppose to be new old stock that have just been sitting for awhile but never used. http://www.ebay.com/itm/351493027694?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I have ordered a lot from this guy different type...

Re: Bad eproms that verify?

A couple of suggestions. When reading back on your programmer make sure vcc and vpp are at 5v not the higer programming voltage of 6v etc... vpp should be at 5v or gnd. I do not know how to change that. I just click read. Unless this is somehow done in the software, I am still novice to the ins and...

Re: Bad eproms that verify?

Ok I am 100% confident these chips are bad. I did continuity checks on every pin on adapter board and everything. Furthermore I had another m27c160 from my last order that I needed to erase. I tried programming 2 more new chips and bam both bad. I then programmed the chip from last batch after I era...

Re: Bad eproms that verify?

Not getting the update wouldn't cause problems would it? They released a new update but I never got it as it was working fine and honestly I couldn't figure out how to install it LOL. I hate to admit that as I am quite well with computers but this software they give is not user friendly at all. It h...

Re: Bad peroms that verify?

Well they are suppose to be new old stock. I don't buy used for that exact reason. I read every time they are erased they lose shelf life. I'm not sure how they act after sitting for years.

Re: Bad peroms that verify?

Hmmm it looks like 100F1 is 0-70 Celsius. 0 is freezing so if the temps got down under 32 F could that have caused damage to them during shipping. It did just get cold finally.

They were shipped on Dec 29th and delivered Jan 7th.

Re: Bad peroms that verify?

They are identical. Exact same chips. Could something have caused this shipment to go bad? They are from same seller as well. I just don't get how they program and verify then have scrambled graphics or no picture at all.

Bad eproms that verify?

Just wondering have any of you guys had eproms that blank check, program, and verify good but do not work? I had a new batch of chips come in and none of them work. I have tried 9 in a row. Mind you in between I have programmed other chips and they work fine. I have also used the same exact chip I h...
