Disable SMS FM sound
« on: September 27, 2017, 01:10:12 pm »
Hello.

I would like to disable the FM support code in some SMS roms. I know that there is some patches that enable this flag to ON. I would like to know if someone could help me identify this code... so I could make a romset without the FM support.

And for those who are asking why I would like to do it, the answers is simple: Because I prefer the PSG sound and my Master system is a Japanese one, and I just can't disable the FM unit.

It's probably a fairly simple hack to each game if you know ASM.

Would need to find and modify the code to always return the "no FM" flag.

Success. I talked with some people at SMSpower and they helped me to understand the process. Thanks again!
