Gaming Discussion / Re: Building Snes custom repro carts
« on: May 20, 2016, 05:19:40 pm »
carts go for stupid prices these days (just so they can sit on posers shelves) so they're a rip off. If you look up the prices on some of the most classic SNES games then you will see that the price of those would quickly eclipse the price of a flash cart like those mentioned above
*I forgot Top Gear 3000

Yes ive noticed this too, that was the only reason why i went for a Super Famicom, games are way cheaper so far ive bought Super Metroid $24, Mario Collection $11, Mario Kart $12, Mario World $10, Zelda Lttp $10, Super SF 2 $10, Yoshi's Island $12, all of them including shipping, my goal is to get just the ones that are sub $40 like castlevania, Ghouls n Ghosts, Contra 3, and some other Japanese stuff like GoGo Ackman which go for cheap, the ones i just cant afford are the obvious ones like Crhonno Trigger, Mario RPG, FF 3, Secret of Mana, Ninja Gaiden trilogy, Megaman x1-2-3 and stuff like that which goes for around a hundred each, no way im paying those prices.

I dont have money to burn, but i want to build a decent collection just for the nostalgiua factor, at least the ones i had as kid and sold for i dont know how much years and years ago.

Ill check that Power Pak you mention to see hows the compatibility.

fginally, im pretty sure there's a ROM hack for Yopshi's Island which lowers the volume of the baby screams or removes them completely.. im sure ive read on some hacking forum years ago but i dont know if it was actually finished or released.

"someplace reliable" and "get flashed ROMs" are somewhat contradictory.

By reliable i mean, someone whit experience and who's not gonna run away with my money.

Ive found some web stores like this one  http://www.buyicnow.com/so.php  they sell the chips and they can flash them for you if you send them the files sadly they are not in the US so the shipping completely kills the deal for me, also some of the hacks and translations i want to play are tricky to make them work on real hardware, i just got a Super Famicom recently and i want to use it obviously, nothig like the real thing with real controllers.

$230 is way too much for what i need, my plan is to buy 2 multigame boards, one for Zelda AST the other for Yoshis Island hack, Starfox 2 and Seiken Densetsu 3. So i would need someone in the US who's familiar with Snes ROM flashing to take care of deciding which chip is more convenient for each game and flash the correct-patched files so they run on original hardware.

Or you could just get an SD cart. That kinda makes this one obsolete.

well ive found this long ago but is not compatible with games that use special chips so cant play Mario RPG hacks, or Star Fox 2, or Yopshis Island hacks.

those might be good for just normal games, but the catch is you need to also buy the cart flasher wich goes for an extra $20, and compatibility isnt too high from what iv e read on their forums.

besides that, theres also the SD2Snes, but... man have you seen those prices? $220 waaaaaaaaaaaaaay above my budget, also i wanna try it for the fun of building my own, i have some soldering skills and im a DIY afficionado, i modded my Gamecube myself, and a friends PS3.

All i need is someplace reliable to get the flashed ROMs, and that has experience handling Snes ones since some of them are tricky to make them work on real hardware.

Anyone here has experience building Snes repros?

Ive found this video recently andi was impressed by what these boards can acomplish, multigames with save function working for 4 games on 1 cart sounds impressive.


Anyways, ive been in contact with him and im about to bite on a couple of those boards to build some carts and put some hacks and translations on them.

My question is... and im not sure if this is against the rules... is there any service where i can order the chips already flashed with the games? he told me he doesnt do that, and a ROM flasher is very expensive and doesnt worth it since i only want like 3 or 4 carts.

So... i got a Super Famicom from the flea market about 2 weeks ago, and just today some games i bought finally arrived, problem is, just as i was plugging everything to play some Super Donkey Kong, i noticed the power adapter that came with it its for the Neo Geo AES.

Any of you knows for sure that it will not melt my console, is it safe to use it at least until i get the original one.

specs can be read in the pic

Hasd any of you read this? it's quite fascinating to read even when i don't understand 80% of what the author says.. all those numbers and terms and equations... so fascinating, anyways it's in pdf form


Also, i wonder if there's any other piece like this for any other game? i would love to see one for a Zelda game.

I've been curious about the so called and mysterious "Deep Web" for ages, i know back in late 90's the only way to get Snes Rom dumps was through Geocities and such, however i've always wondered what else lies there? (besides illegal content, hitmen for hire, drug dealers and black market pets and weapons of course).

Anyways, i'll post some of the most bizarre things i've been shown, i'm NOT sure if these are real or just made for trolling reasons


Anybody has any more spooky deepweb stories? mostly involving WW2 experiments, banned books and documents, UFO's, secret weapons and such?

Seriously... the only people defending and/or saying this isn't a big deal are "Ambassadors" in denial or having buyers remorse... im SO GLAD i didn't got one last christmas expecting at least, until some good games come for it this holidays, but this is turning into a Sega 32x proportions fiasco... At least early adopters would have a kind of rare console and some 20 year old Roms...
