Hello everyone . I made a customization for personal use. what did you find? button on off 8x8mm large swith, removal of other consoles keeping only snes, led power on off. and finally terminal coupling capacitors.
Just a heads up for everyone who was getting boards/parts from me, just waiting on a few parts. They should arrive soon, except for the damn thread-cutting screws which could arrive any time between tomorrow and February. I can't find a supplier who can get them to me faster, but do you think self tapping ones like https://www.ebay.com/itm/US-Stock-50pcs-M2-x-8mm-Phillip-Cross-Pan-Head-Self-Tapping-Screws/401274645070 would be okay?
Hi Sanni,I set up my pocket version of your cartReader. I thought of doing something that was as simple and cheap as possible to assemble and solder. So I didn't use smd components and kept the entire SdCard module.thx
Without refencing schematics....You could probably add the CIC 12f629 via dongle just like with clock gen, but I have no SA1 carts to test even if I did wire something up.You start losing portability as you start adding those outside pins.One thing Im not clear on...BSX satelite and SA1 need 12f629 and or clock gen12f629 is ONLY for BSX???Clearly NP just needs clock gen.If SA1 just needs clock gen than the above dongle would work.
In the meantime I digged a little bit more and indeed, NP only needs clock gen where SA-1 needs both clock gen + the additional chip.So the seller on eBay was very kind to cancel my buy. I'll look for a full-sized Sanni's cart reader (I'm in contact with him) and if possible, I'd like also to put my hands on skaman's retrode 2 adapter for SA-1 cartridges.NB: I've no skills in electronics, that why building it myself would be very very complicated and I don't want to just "download" the rom file of my cartridge on the Internet because I participate in the no-intro initiative (game preservation project) and I'm in the process to dump all my cartridges for verifications.
