Thanks crade  for the long reply

About cygwin, i compile a lot of unix stuff there, but not always work at the first time, most of time because dependencies problems
Sadly i have two problems now, first, no time to play much, and second a 56k internet connection... download packages is a pain

Ok, about the roms

I already finished testing the more than 900 working roms, then i made a ISO and share on internet

But i keep testing the non working ones,

Answering your question,   imbnes support  0,1,2,3,4,7,9,11,34,66,71 mappers



and about ROTK 1 and Genghis Khan....


I test Genghis Khan first,  because i see that both games are from same company, they look have same problem


Aoki Ookami to Shiroki Mejika - Genghis Khan (J).nes  >  NOT working
Aoki Ookami to Shiroki Mejika - Genghis Khan (J) [h1].nes > WORKING WELL
Genghis Khan (U).nes  >  NOT working


ok, using google,  [h1] means "hack", then is a hacked version

next, i open the roms in nestopia, and this is the info i get

it look like the only difference about the NON working, and the working one, are that the hacked version, NOT have reference to ANY chip...


I need to learn how to hack the roms and do this...


In imbnes, the USA and Japanese normal version of Genghis Khan  only give a black screen....


greetings
crade:
I don't have the famicom genghis cart, but that US rom's CRC is right and matches the one I dumped off my cart and also the CRC listed on bootgod's db.  I would say that one looks like a bug in the MMC1 implementation in that emulator to me...  Can you confirm that the ines header is correct?  Should be mapper 1, horizontal mirroring, batterybacked yes, trained no.

Some emulators will autocorrect the mirroring for you if it's wrong in the header, so sometimes a rom with the wrong mirroring set will work in one emulator and fail in another.  nestopia probably has a way to tell you the mirroring...  I know fceux tells it to you on boot of the rom.


The hacked version has a different CRC, which means the ROM is different so who knows what changes they made to it..

Ok, thats cool,  your words gave me a good idea


I open both Japanese roms, the original one,  and the hacked one  in a hex editor, and found the differences

I replace one difference,  test rom... replace another... test again.... until... the non  working Japanese rom.. WORKS!!


Then i open the US Genghis Khan rom, and found the same content... replace, and now i have a WORKING US rom!!!

just i need to replace  a "26" with a  "00"

I dont have ANY idea what i replace... but it works!!


Just a 26 with a 00.....





About Romance of the Three Kingdoms ...  this game need a keyboard or something like this? is because when i start the rom, say

Chose wich

1. New Game
2. Load data

If i start smashing buttons like crazy, i get next screen, and say

OK
(Y/N)


Well.... impossible to write Y or N with a joystick :) jjajaja

remembers me a pachinco game i have with a keyboard
crade:
Rotk has a selector icon that should point to new game to start and if you push down or select it moves to load.  the y/n questions are all answered by pressing left for y and right for n
