Ahh yep, forgot to list that i tested the MultioutĀ“s pins for continuity and all of them are fine, cleaned the contacts and ruled out the cable since it wqorks fine on my N64.

Ive found an old thread where some guy actually did what im trying to acomplish

http://benheck.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=65568

"At first, I tried connecting a pair of RCA jacks directly to the output pins on the APU (pins 21 and 22) through high-quality capacitors and resistors for protection"

The downsideis that from his experience, the volume level was somewhat low, however i wouldnt mind that, since all i want is to fix the sound.

I dont understand how he did it mainly because he just says APU pins 21 and 22, but my guess is that he used the latest Snes revision with only 1 audio chip, and mine is the second revision with 2 chips.

Long story short, my old ancient Snes has no audio at all either from Mutliout or RF, ruled out the cables since i tested them on my N64, anyways.

What i tried so far:

Replacing all caps, still no audio.
Trying to find any broken trace on the audio chips side, found none so far.
Trying to find any cold point on the audio chips but found none yet.

bear in mind my knowledge in electronics is very limited so im just using a magnifying glass, a basic tester and some schematics ive found on the web like this one
http://gamesx.com/wiki/lib/exe/fetch.php?media=schematics:snes_schematic_color.pdf

So, as im at the brink of giving up, the last thing i would like to try is getting audio out directly from one of the chips, i know about the digital audio mod but thats just not an option for me since the board alone costs almost $30.

From my understanding on that schematic, i COULD try to get sound out from the NEC DAC chip, pins 6 and 11 crry out the audio channels, but i have some questions before attemting this.

Can i just solder those pins (6 and 11) from the DAC directly to the multiout's pins 11 and 12? should i add any resistors in between?

Or, can i get audio out from the DSP or SMP chips?

Any help appreciated to resurrect my childhoods Snes.

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.
http://www.infiniteneslives.com/aux5.php

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmENj2n9oYY

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.

« on: December 30, 2015, 07:10:22 pm »
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?
