Welcome to the store. I have several NES and SNES boards available for sale that can be used for reproductions or development. I'm happy to provide incidental support for these boards but please understand that they are meant for people familiar with electronics, especially EPROM and soldering.
- Devolution Board V1 - Supports standard SNES ROMs using 27C322 EPROM as the memory (up to 48mbit tested). Requires donor MAD-1 chips for games over 8mbit and donor security chip.
- Devolution Board V2 - Supports standard SNES ROMs using 27C322 EPROM as the memory (up to 48mbit tested). Does not technically require any donor chips. Can use a donor security chip, or a PIC12F519 in place.
- ZAST/Multimario Board - Designed to access 2 or 4 separate games on one board, using the Reset button on the console to switch. Can be used for Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets, or a multicart of 4 Super Mario World hacks.
- SNackboard - Supports SNROM and SXROM NES games. Requires a donor MMC1, and can use a donor security chip or a CIClone chip.
- TNacious Board - Supports TNROM NES games. Requires a donor MMC3, and can uses a donor security chip or a CIClone chip.
I now have entirely new PCBs designed by myself. They support all HIROM and LOROM games as well as the double-rom ExHIROM like Tales of Phantasia.
I will sell the blank PCBs for $27 $20 plus shipping. Please take a look at this document that should answer all your questions about the board including parts necessary and the assembly instructions:
Hello again faithful readers. Today, I'm detailing the creation of my newest atrocity, Super Mario All-Stars NES.
I'm cramming the data of 4 games onto 8 Mbit EPROM chips and using a binary counter to cycle through the games by pressing the console's reset button.
Don't care about the technical details? Click here to see the final result in action.
Hello again folks!
Today I want to cover a very common fault with the Colecovision - their power switches. Basically, they are very mechanical in nature, and easily get dirty and cease to work. Often this means you'll get a picture on your TV, but it may be totally scrambled, or just black, or whatever. Most people would never suspect the power switch but it's easily the most common Colecovision repair job you'll see.
First things first, if you just want to repair your switch, it's pretty simple too. Just follow along, you'll see what to do.
