74LS139 Logic inside SNES Cartridges

Post by Ice Man » Fri Aug 07, 2015 6:29 am

I've already succeed in resoldering the onboard 74LS139 Decoder found in SHVC-1AXB-XX boards to support 27c322 (32MBit) games and save properly.

Connections here:
Pin 01 = SNES Cart 49 /OE
Pin 02 = SNES Cart 40
Pin 03 = SNES Cart 40
Pin 04 = Pin 15
Pin 05 = NC
Pin 06 = NC
Pin 07 = ROM /OE
Pin 08 = GND
Pin 09 = RAM /CE
Pin 10 = NC
Pin 11 = NC
Pin 12 = NC
Pin 13 = A21
Pin 14 = A20
Pin 15 = Pin 04
Pin 16 = VCC

However, I'd like to know how this will work for HiROM games?
There's only one afaik: Final Fantay V that uses SHVC-1J3B-XX board.
Does anyone have the 74LS139 pinout for that cartridge?
Help appreciated.
