Hi - can you please send me some pics via PM?

Do you know if you can use an RGB cable with this system from stock?

Hello all,

I received a famicom that has been sitting in an attic for 20 some years. The previous owner stored it after it stopped working, so I am the first to actually open it up and look at it.

After reading some pointers on this site and poking around with my multi-meter, i discovered that the 1.5A fuse as well as the 7805 voltage regulator were both burned out. I have just replaced those, but the new voltage regulator will not give any voltage readings when probed. The fuse still gets power, but it doesn't seem to make it up to the voltage regulator. Is there anything else I should be searching for?

Thank you

I don't know but maybe not.

The write protection just prohibits rewriting the entire disk, but still allows writing to single files (or else games wouldn't be able to save). Since the graphic editors are probably just editing the files that contains CHR data, my spontaneous guess is that it would work even with write protection.

2) Everdrive N8 is emulation which has emulation bugs and also some of the more advanced titles work badly or not at all.
It runs on the Famicom so no emuation there. The only emulation in there is the "emulation" of mappers and sound chips and such in the FPGA. FPGA is programmable logic and is quite different from using a processor. As I understand it, it's possible to reproduce hardware in programmable logic 100% accurately in theory. The Everdrive has a way to go though on the sound chips which is why I don't recommend getting an Everdrive for these particular games. The advanced games with glitches you are talking about is probably MMC5 and VRC7 and such mappers which aren't fully implemented yet. Most simple mappers seems to be working correctly (what all these do is generally just to map in more pages of ROM, so they are probably not very hard to reproduce in FPGA compared to MMC5). Which means most games works flawlessly. The advanced games is a work in progress.

It doesn't have better video or anything, it's just that it has AV out of the box without the need for mods (a classic Famicom with AV-mod may have the same quality of video). The reason AV Famicom is popular is because it has AV from the beginning and has NES-style controller ports (it sacrifices the mic though)

It seems AV modded Famicoms usually have jailbars etc so I wouldn't say the AV is the same as on an AV Famicom. Also the controller ports are very convenient so I wouldn't even bother with anything else than an AV Famicom unless you are short of money or sit very close to the TV.

I remember earlier discussions on this forum about AV quality also concluded that AV Famicom has better video than Twin Famicom or AV-modded Famicom.
I don't really know much about it, but they say AV Famicom also have faint jailbars. The quality of the picture of an AV-modded console, depends on the AV-mod that you do.

So, as the title says, I am considering an Everdrive N8, Famicom format. To put that into perspective...I am in the USA. I own both NES, Famicom, and clone consoles for both consoles. I am buying an AV Famicom here very shortly, on top of what I already own. From my understanding, the AV Famicom has the better video of the bunch. Couple that with the fact that you are can load either system ROM to the cart, and it seems like ti would make the most sense.

Of course, this won't exactly stop me from collecting... but it does seem a mighty convenient way to cram a lot of titles into one cart. Game Genie support seems like a fun plus as well. I have a fair bit of translated, and hack ROMS that are a lot of fun, and as much as I like repros, the flash cart makes more sense from a pure playing standpoint.

Thoughts?

I don't agree with the people here because

1) Having too many titles on an a card makes you less inclined to play anything because you have too much choice and any single game is just a worthless file that you downloaded.

2) Everdrive N8 is emulation which has emulation bugs and also some of the more advanced titles work badly or not at all.

I am selling a yellowish (but not that super yellow either) Sega Mark III in perfect working condition.

The system would come with its two controllers (they don't have the little stick) and that's it....no PSU, no A/V cable. Only the system, and two controllers.

70 euros....80 euros shipping included to Europe...85 to the US.

Feel free to ask pictures by PM.

Thanks!!

Rockmanzallz kindly approached me concerning an updated logo and corrected copyright info for Monster Party (JPN Prototype). This is still a community ROM, so I will share this improved label.



I managed to find acceptable artwork for Super Mario Bros. Special, it'll do but the quality could be better. If anyone wants I can post it.

Much earlier in this thread, someone made a SMB Special cart using an NES SAROM board + pin adapter + tall FC shell. I think that is way overkill. The Famicom already has at least one very compatible board, SJROM. It offers MMC1, PRG RAM and battery saving, good for Dragon Warrior 1 as well.
