I bought Medal of Honor: European Assault and Neo Contra for the PS2 at Gamestop today.. Traded in 5 PS2 games today, and got $17 for it.. Traded 3 PS2 games and 1 'Cube game (Madden '06) the other day, and got near $15 for it.. That's Gamestop for you: Douching people on used games for the last few years.

Awesome! You're right it was BIG -- particularly since you've been looking for it for soooo long. Great price, too, considering how high it can normally go for. Maybe someday I'll have a copy of my own. :-[ (Until then...I'll be using my repro.)

Flying Warriors isn't in any of the lists I know. Perhaps it goes by another name?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on August 30, 2006, 02:33:07 AM
Oh this is just too good! I told you all I bought one of those cheap controller/systems. Well, I got it today!

What you're looking at is the N64-type controller. This is not just a controller. It's also the console -- LOL. I kid you not. See how I have the AV cords plugged into it. And the AC adaptor, too. That blue square blur is the on/off button. The middle part is where you can plug in the pistol and other controller (weird shape) that came with it.

[Removed]

Flip the controller over and that's where you insert the Famicom games. I haven't tried that out yet, but wow. I wonder if the carts will even stay in there while you play, since they'll be hanging upsidedown.

[Removed]

The best part: the controller comes with built in games! I haven't counted the number of different games (it was sold to me as 13 different games), but if you scroll to the end of the games list, the makers of this sick console actually listed over 76,000 name variations of the same 13 or so games!

Holy shit, right! --- it's got Contra!

Post by: JC on September 08, 2006, 02:36:21 AM
Is it really good? No. Is it good? Yes. The gameplay is simple, probably because it had to be made 8-bit. It's kind of like your typical fighter, where it's you vs. some enemy dude. Only it's not just you vs. the enemy dude. First you have to fight off a bunch of goons, and then, once you've killed like ten of them, you fight the boss dude. But it all takes place on one screen, with limited sidescrolling. It's cool.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

Ok, so I got my Hacker Internationals, and I've been playing Poker. Does anyone know how much money I need in my bank to get these girls to start stripping!

EDIT: Ok, so they start stripping at every new $1,000 reached. At $5,000 it's essentially Game Over 'cause the chicks have nothing left to take off.

So far I've played Poker and Soap Panic and both, putting aside the 8-bit nudity, aren't bad games. Obviously Poker is poker. And Soap Panic, with it's Tetris-esque gameplay is neat (and tough). I still need to get used to the buttons!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Doc on September 13, 2006, 09:26:52 PM
Soap Panic is Tetris but upside down, IIRC.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on September 13, 2006, 09:30:54 PM
You're right that it's upsidedown, because the bubbles float. But it's not exactly Tetris. You don't try to complete lines, instead you try to attach four or more bubbles of the same color to disappear them. The pieces also flip, like in Tetris, but because the bubbles cluster differently than the shape of Tetris pieces, it's difficult to get adjusted to the game. Fun though!

Post by: JC on September 20, 2006, 11:48:34 PM
I wish I had all five, but I've only got the gold disks and the Punch-Outs. I'll have to work harder to get the Game & Watch, since it's so expensive -- though I almost snagged on cheap the other day. And then I'm debating whether or not it's worth getting the stationary set. Maybe if I get it REALLY cheap.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: vealchop on September 21, 2006, 12:23:20 AM
So there were two versions of the gold punch out cart? or do you just own two of the same?

also, what are the changes (if any) in the actual game on the gold carts?

Just picked up this lot: 83 games for $158 shipped. That's $1.90 per game. I have only a few of the games, so it was a good find.

Just picked up a Gyro set for $29 bucks! I don't wanna give away the secret, but if you search for where I got my $25 Block set then you'll know who to watch out for!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 11, 2006, 02:59:25 AM
I think I just saw that Block Set. Was that the one with the small (what did they call it) pressure mark on the box? If I didn't just spend some serious cash, I was gonna pick that one off.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: vealchop on November 11, 2006, 05:08:27 AM
The very same sir. Keep a look out on his auctions he lists new ones all the time but they go quick. He has another block set for $25 thats listed as pick-up only, but i think that might be a mistake. you might wanna try contacting him if youre interested.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 11, 2006, 06:08:47 PM
I saw that block set. But like I said...no money right now. And the pick-up only is definitely a mistake. The seller has shipped bunches of those out. No reason to stop now.

Picked up these SWEET nintendo playing cards:

(http://i17.ebayimg.com/03/i/08/c5/c1/6b_1.JPG)

I guess on the back it says "Nintendo Playing Card Co. Ltd." which , I'm guessing, would age them between 1950 - 1975. Although I'm sure someone will come across something and they'll be from 1998 or something  ;D ;D ;D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 11, 2006, 08:17:43 PM
I was gonna PM you about those. I saw them yesterday with no bids. I was uncertain about their age as well, but I figured they had to be at least pre-1980. That case they come in looks like 60s.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: vealchop on November 11, 2006, 08:27:39 PM
Its funny, these were on ebay about a month ago for like twice as much, with a buy it now for 70 bucks. When it didn't sell, I asked the seller if they would give them to me for 30, and they said no. So when they relisted it, I wound up getting them for 22...go figure. haha


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 13, 2006, 03:42:15 PM
Just pick up this one, factory sealed, so the auction said:

[Removed]

I've decided to focus my attention like vealchop, so I'm gonna be picking up as many of the Hacker's, Super Pigs, and Mimis as I can get. I guess that's still a bit more broad of a goal than vealchop might recommend, but hell, I love pirates/unlicensed, so I'll go with it.

BTW: Anyone (manuel/feather) know the name of this Super Pig? I need to add it to the games list.

BTW 2: This is the first CIB/NIB I've ever purchased having actually wanted it...which is dangerous after all my "burn the boxes" talk from last month!

Well, perhaps...but an artist's paintings are always one-of-a-kind. Not mass produced. So maybe the first color barrel would be worth some money. :)

Post by: JC on November 14, 2006, 03:39:37 PM
Don't play dumb. :P You know what I mean. Those that are hand painted by the artist are the only ones worth big bucks. The shit they print out (mass produce) doesn't ever bring in the dough.

Hey JC, that Super Pig game is Emi-chan no Moero Yakyuuken.  Translates to Emi's Hot Strip Game.  It's a paper rock scissors game and soooo annoying since you have to defeat her so many more times than she defeats yyou to get her to strip. But I guess that makes it fun too!

Those playing cards I won (posted them a few posts back) came in a case. On the bottom it says "Nintendo Playing Card Co.". I nor the seller knew exactly when they were from. Then I found this on wikipedia:

In 1963, Nintendo Playing Card Company Limited was renamed to Nintendo Company, Limited by Hiroshi. Nintendo now began to experiment in other areas of business using the newly injected capital.

That places them before 1963! The cards themselves are still sealed with the stamp inside!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 20, 2006, 07:59:51 PM
Damn. Such a good find. I hope we can pin down a date for those at some point. At least we know pre-1963. I don't think plastic was used in mass production for a couple decades into the 1900s. I'm not sure about that. But a really cool find! :D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 20, 2006, 11:23:48 PM
$11.75 shipped. I'm hoping the Mario cart is SMB2j. If not...not such a good deal, though that multi-cart might sell decently if it's got Famicom Contra.

Can't believe no one commented on the color-TV games I won! I've seen them go for $100 bucks each!

Try this!

HERE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nekketsu_Koha_Kunio_Kun)

what did you pay for these? are these to keep or re-sell?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: vealchop on November 30, 2006, 04:33:46 PM
Looks like theres 11 in the series...almost complete! Nice find!  ;D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 30, 2006, 07:31:37 PM
Honestly, I haven't paid much attention to the Nekketsu to know what they sell for. But I compared the price of this lot to the single CIBs I've seen and figured it was a good enough deal. I paid $170 shipped. And I plan to keep them.

Help me out with the titles:

Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball-bu: Soccer-hen
Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundōkai
?
Kunio-kun no Nekketsu Soccer League
Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey-bu: Subette Koronde Dairantō
?
?
Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari

Yeah. Once I bought those Nekketsus, I began paying attention to the pricing of them. Toysonlinehk has several brand new and used and they're all priced over $50. I think I got a decent deal. Could have been better, of course. But I'm happy with it.

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on December 14, 2006, 12:53:22 AM
Good questions. All I know is that it doesn't fit Famicom. It's packed up right now, but I'll try to have a better description/pic in a few days.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: madman on December 14, 2006, 01:04:14 AM
It's definitely some kind of SFC adapter based on the case.  Could be a SNES/SFC converter like you thought.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: madman on December 14, 2006, 06:21:07 PM
Here's what I got today. 

(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/goodies/goodies2.jpg)
(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/goodies/goodies3.jpg)
The 52 in 1 above shows 52 uniques according to the label, including 2 versions of SMB 2.  The 43 in 1seems to have 11 that repeat.

(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/goodies/goodies4.jpg)
The big 100 in 1 will probably be the coolest, it's the heaviest of them all.  Most feel like they just have a ROM glob.  The 100 in 1 also uses actual cart labels if you look closely you can see "TV Game cartridge."  The Pokemon cart is most likely 4 hacks. 

(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/goodies/goodies5.jpg)
(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/goodies/goodies6.jpg)
Fifty-five pirate FDS disks. 

(http://www.speakeasy.org/~sjmaks/goodies/goodies7.jpg)
A sampling of some of the pirate disks.  Note the SMB3 artwork which is most likely an SMB1 level hack.  1943 is most likely a cartridge "trained" to work on the FDS with a game doctor. 


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on December 15, 2006, 12:53:17 AM
Cool stuff, man. Jealous over here. I'm really into pirates, so if you find anything unusual on any of those, post some screenshots here or in the pirates thread under Famicom/FDS. I'd love to see an upclose of Pikachu (if that's what's on there).


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Doc on December 15, 2006, 01:29:11 AM
Lovin' that SMB3 pirate. :)


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: madman on December 15, 2006, 01:58:11 AM
Well, nothing too exciting in the pile yet.  The FDS disks are pretty standard, about 15 wouldn't load without errors, but I didn't have my game doctor plugged in so they may be hacked cart games that need a doctor.

The 100 in 1 cart has the following games:
TMNT 2
Famicom Castle game (not sure of the title)
Adventure Island
Ice Climber
Binary Land
Nuts & Milk
Lode Runner
Dig Dug
Galaxian

The Pokemon cart, as expected, is four hacked games.  One of them is based on Little Nemo Dream Master, another on a Dastardly and Mutley game (of Wacky Races fame).  The other 2 I wasn't sure of. 

The 1995 Super 8 in 1 has the advertised games: Ducktales 2, Prince of Persia, Wrestlemania, Caesar's Palace, X-Men, California Games, Little Mermaid and Double Dribble.

The 52 in 1 has 52 unique games, one of which is an SMB1 hack called "Fancy Bros."  Basically, the left half of the screen is drawn with what is the next half of the screen you will encounter, but you can't interact with it.  Pretty stupid and useless.

The 212 in 1 has a load of repeats including some HK original called Frog River.  It's basically a Frogger ripoff, except no matter what you do, your frog dies on the first jump you make into the playfield.

The purple one with the Tetris on the label is a 64 in 1 with some repeats.  Legend of Kage is on it, along with an SMB1 hack called "Fast Bros II" which is basically SMB1 running at double speed.

The 4 in 1s use reset to switch between games.  If I recall, the 76 in 1 are all uniques.  The FDS disk with the SMB3 artwork is one of the common SMB1 hacks where the first thing you encounter is a 1-up and turtle locked in a box of bricks.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Doc on December 16, 2006, 01:34:35 PM
Awww shoot, so it looks like no one ever really made SMB3 for the FDS...


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on January 03, 2007, 09:48:18 PM
Do you have a better pic of it? What's the top look like? How many pins?

Looks like it converts 62 pins to 62 pins? Got a clue? Four pins isolated at each end and the rest in the center.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: madman on January 04, 2007, 12:28:36 AM
I forgot to follow up, I came across another one of those, it's just a SNES/SFC convertor.  Probably so you can play SFC games on a SNES, or vice versa  :)


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on January 04, 2007, 05:39:32 AM
What does the converter actually do? In the case of the NES/Famicom, there are different numbers of pins. But with this converter its got the same number on each end (game/console ends), in the same four-four-isolated arrangement.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: madman on January 04, 2007, 03:51:01 PM
SFC games won't fit into a SNES due to some tabs being inside the SNES that prevent insertion of the cart.  Likewise I imagine there is some reason a SNES game wont fit into an SFC.  But, in terms of pinouts, they are the exact same thing.  It's just a physical lockout.

Likewise I imagine there is some reason a SNES game wont fit into an SFC.

SFC carts are smaller and have a bit of a rounded front, so SNES games can't even get throught the SFC's dust door.

To stay on topic, I picked up 2 FC games at a local flea market on Sunday: F1Circus and a Pirate of that Jewels game by Hwang.

I just changed the belt on the twin and it works great!
The ac is also perfect and only cost me 10 bucks. The system was 10$ plus shipping from seller to japan to me. everything totaled out to about 200$ with 2 day shipping from japan. Its not great but the twin is perfect condition, barely any dust at all in it. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. If anyone wants twin adapters i will make you one like mine for 10bucks plus shipping. I'm gonna work on sourcing some ac adapters and famicom adapters.

Every month, collectors and gamers buy stuff related with Famicom,  they can be a one single cart, a pirate console, accesories, so whatever you buy on this month can be posted here.

I like to collect pirates / clones consoles, so this month I dedicate my shops to this part of my life
There are some shops only of this month, they were all buyed in different places, I like to travel a lot to find cool stuff :

It's a pirate, a Snow Bros original it's hard to find, this one is quite different from the others that I have 'cause had a rip-off label from the Genesis version. But it says TOAPLAN in the opening of the game and it's entirely in japanese.

$5, 2 packs of pre-famicom Nintendo Magic Cards. One in box, one loose. I've seen these go for $40 on YAJ.

haha! ya i know, I find myself slowly wanting to look at G&W listings on ebay. If they go over $20, which they usually always do, I stay away. This one was a steal cause the seller doesn't use paypal. But I'm waaay to wrapped up in pre-famicom stuff now to get wrapped up in G&W, and I don't think I'd ever drop $800 for one  :D

Hey Vealchop, did you get any of those Nintendo toys that japangames was selling?  I'm sure you had your eye on them, I did too but forgot to bid on some.  Seemed like there were some good deals. 


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on February 24, 2007, 09:45:27 PM
You need to put up a pic. :P

I've posted some pics on the Master Fighter page: HERE (http://www.famicomworld.com/Pirated/Master_Fighter_PIR.htm).

From what I remember, you can choose your own character, & "stupid" ? I think it's more a matter of fact that people search for Street Fighter & end up not finding Master Fighter.

That Master Fighter VI looks sweet, by the way. YOKO seems to use the term 'wrestler' in place of 'fighter' . :P

Post by: vealchop on February 26, 2007, 04:40:49 AM
Ya i made a few bids on some but they went higher than I wanted to pay. Theres only a few more items I'm really looking to get my hands on (Nintendo's Twister, Love Tester, and Chiritory (ya right!)) Everything else I wanted I have. I have a bunch of board games and a bunch of N&B sets and 4 Ultra Machines, one of which is the american version. I really need to take a picture of everything so I can show you guys. I'm moving to Kansas City in a few weeks and buying a house, so hopefully I'll have my own game room. My fiancee really hates all the clutter haha, if you saw the Wii pics I put up you can tell how neat she likes the place. So when I get my room set up I'll take some shots. Although when we have a kid (in a few years!) I'm sure my game room will go the way of the Dodo, oh well.  :D

I got a Super Pig that's also got Hacker International's name on it. I'll have to post a pic and get the name of the game.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on March 04, 2007, 06:26:04 AM
I was just opening up some Mimi and Super Pig games, and I'm realizing that Hacker had a hand in these other companies' unlicensed games. I mentioned the Super Pig game with a Hacker label on it. Three of the Mimi games I got (all from the same series) came with Hacker sleeves for the disks. Maybe Mimi bought Hacker's excess sleeves, or maybe Hacker helped get Mimi's games into the market. Neat, nonetheless.

Cool finds, madman and veal.

I haven't been lucky on Yahoo! lately. I've been slightly overbid on stuff, like a CIB stationery set. >:(


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: vealchop on March 06, 2007, 02:23:19 AM
Its more of a collection piece rather than a working system i needed. As long as it is in good condition and in the box, I'll buy it even if it doesn't work.  :D

Post by: vealchop on March 07, 2007, 08:08:39 PM
wow, that "LifeBoat" G&W I bought on ebay for a few bucks turned out to be a GEM! the box is kind of beat up, but the actual game is in brand-spanking-new condition with all inserts and instructions, styrofoam, and batteries! I've seen this selling for like $300 on YAJ!

I have to be real careful, though. My Famicom has problems putting games in and out, so I have to push/pull real hard...and the plastic is so damn cheap that it literally is two more forced pushes away from breaking...ugh. Oh well, will just have to be very very soft and careful when playing. :)

Finally won a featherpluck auction. Picked up those two might-not-be-test-carts carts. I'm surprised they weren't more popular, but maybe since there was a lack of certainty about them, peeps were skeptical. So, I might have just won junk. :D

Well, I really interested in them, because this isn't the first time that I've seen what look like test carts with those switches and holes. Though the ones I've seen didn't have nice labels but had what looked like tape with the name of the game written on them.

No, you can only write early games that didn't use mappers.  I think some of those may have also supported the UNROM carts as well but I can't recall.

Early Nintendo toy from '69. Once in a while you can find these on ebay for super cheap cause unless you really know you'd never know they were made by nintendo, they were distributed by a different company. But if you look closely on the toy itself you can see the nintendo name/copyright. As far as I know it came in a red and green color.  Set complete!  :D

Cool to get the converters. They've been selling decently. Don't know what was up with this auction and why it didn't sell for a few bucks more. Of course, games without labels don't sell well. But maybe you'll get lucky and find something cool on there. And if not, you can create your own labels and resell them. :o


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on April 04, 2007, 04:28:40 AM
I might resell them since I don't really collect multicarts; but, I don't know, if they've got good games on them. :-\

Either way, it's going to be interesting - I've never had a multicart before.

They're so convenient when they've got a bunch of unique games on them. You don't have to change carts all the time. I like 'em a lot.

One reason why I've been avoiding multicarts is because I try to collect legit copies of the games I want;

I  was standing on line to buy a DS game and out of the corner of my eye I spied those famicom maroon/gold colors and was shocked to see that in a store like that. I didn't know at the time that nintendo was planning on releasing the famicom micro GBA version here in the states. I still like carrying it around with me to play SMB on the go.

I love that famicom micro gba handheld. I had a sealed one but my brother opened it on purpose!!! Oh well I'll get another one soon.

The converters arrived quicker than expected:

Link (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=020&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=300096667296&rd=1&rd=1)

Usually items from Canada are delayed.

Anyways, the seller lied! There weren't 4 converters! >:( There were 5! :) Wait, let me make sure... yep, 5.

In addition to the 3 unlabeled cartridges were 2 more, labeled cartridges! :o Wait, let me make sure... yep, 5.

A winner is me. :)

But it's late now & I need to go to sleep.  Tomorrow I'll be at school all day, & when I get back I need to prepare for drill weekend in which we'll be staying out in the field.

So I won't have time to play these until Sunday night, or Monday. (http://tintsshades.port5.com/images/hmph.gif)

I just picked up over 20 issues of the Japanese mook "Backup Technique" which was the premiere console hacking magazine back in the day.  There's all kinds of crazy projects for Famicom and other consoles/computers in it, most of which the Western world has never even heard of.  All the issues were 500 Yen....EMS shipping to the US is going to be about US$100 :(

Cool find, madman. You better let us know what you find out from the mags.

And Jedi, don't forget to tell us if you find anything cool on those carts.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: madman on April 13, 2007, 06:04:21 PM
The 3 issues I have right now have a few crazy things.  There's a lot of FDS copying/hacking stuff in them.  There's also plans for a MIDI interface for the Famicom.  Totally insane that they made this thing.  Another thing is an audio mod that allows some additional audio controls on the Famicom.  I'm not sure if the newer issues I'm getting will have much Famicom stuff, might be more Super Famicom related.

The verdict is in!

There's nothing too interesting:

Looking at the auction:

httpt://cgi.egay.com/wtfisthis/eBayICUPI.dll?Longeffingurlname (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=020&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=300096667296&rd=1&rd=1)

The black cartridge with the ripped off label is SMB3, which is perfect because I've always wanted to try out this game but not actually keep it. ;D

The one with the Canada flag is the same 63 in 1 featured in the Pirated section.

The blue cartridge is a 110 in 1.  Again, the same one in the Pirated section.

As for these other two:

The 31 in 1 has some common games in it & features a nice select screen ripped off of the Famicom Disk System startup... with snappy music.

The 110 in 1 is the same, but it took me a while to realize that it was an NES game. :P I'm keeping that one.

I'll sell the 31 in 1 for 5 dollars to anyone who wants to do a review of it for the Pirated section... I don't feel like doing it.

I got the issues of Backup Technique today.  They look brand new, but smell like they've been in a storage locker :(  Maybe they'll air out. 

Anyhow, in the 2 issues I looked at so far there are a few interesting Famicom things.  One issue has reviews of a bunch of pirate originals, including many of the SF2s and a ton of Mario hacks.  The other has reviews of a bunch of pirate Famicom clones, many of which I've ever seen before.  The first few pages are color slicks with some really nice pics of the stuff.  There's also a section on making your own selectable ROM board (pretty lame), as well as replacing the ROMs with EPROMs and burning your own ROMs.  They also showed some stuff about the internals of pirate XX in 1 games.

SNES is the main focus in the two issues I got, there is some crazy stuff in these.

I've noticed that just about everything I get from Japan has a smell, kinda musty, as if that's what Japan's closets and storage bins smell like.

One issue has reviews of a bunch of pirate originals, including many of the SF2s and a ton of Mario hacks.

It'd be cool to hear more about these reviews. Any hacks you haven't seen before?

so 120 pesos are 30 dollars.

Babies = cool/sweet things. It's one of English's more colorful uses for the word "baby." In reference to a cool car: "Check out that baby!" Somewhat exchangeable with (still in reference to a car): "Check out that sucker!" "Check out that mother!" and "Check out that shit!"

 :o

If you are asking what a deck are those, well those are famicom games in NES pirate format cartridge, but they don't work in a NES not modified, so the seller says "not work in NES, only in famicom with an adaptor".

He don't describe what games are, but I can see a Twin Bee, Star Force and others.

If you think so, then yes it's worth it. I have seen these sell in lots for less than $3. But that's in lots that sell for $200+. The Wai Wais don't show up often on eBay, so it's not a terrible price to pay for what's a good game.

I just bought this. Lucky 7 Lines

Any idea what it is? I can't find the ROM anywhere. Anyone know jack about it? Can anyone translate the kanji?

Post by: JC on July 07, 2007, 01:36:32 AM
My guess is it'll have an unlicensed game(s) on it, likely porn...but I can't say I've seen one like it. Maybe it's Hot Slots.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: kite200 on July 07, 2007, 02:12:04 AM
yeah its unlicensed, you can tell because of the lack of copyright. it's hanzi i think, you'll have to ask someone with knowledge of mandarin to help. sorry. it doesnt make sense in japanese

Post by: satoshi_matrix on July 07, 2007, 04:06:53 AM
I'll have to post a review of it once it arrives. Or at least a thread about it. The wierd thing is on the back of the box is a pictured Zapper. I wonder if this could possibly be a HKO zapper hentai gambling game? lol now that's a genre for the record books.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on July 07, 2007, 04:59:46 PM
It's obviously pirated, but what I meant by unlicensed games is that it's likely to have unlicensed originals by Hacker, Super Pig, Mimi, etc. on it. I'll be curious to know more when you get it.

Could be a Zapper game, but I doubt it. Sometimes piraters put their other products on the back as a sort of advertising. I have an SMB2j cart like that.

Post by: keiffer01 on July 08, 2007, 12:59:43 AM
I saw the exact same game in a garage sale a couple of years ago. The guy was selling it like 5$, but my father for some reason didn't want me to buy it...maybe because he also thought it was some kind of porn game :D

23 Famicom Carts

I've been MIA for a while since I reached my 1000 game milestone, but I'm back on the saddle now I guess. This was my first game related purchase in over three months. Most of the carts look like boots, but for that many multi carts, I figured it would be worth it anyways.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on July 11, 2007, 12:52:46 AM
Oh, man. I was the original bidder on that auction. But I wasn't willing to pay that much (and I pretty much forgot about the auction), though it might be worth the price if that's the Japanese Contra, instead of the damn NES version. I don't think I've come across the Japanese version. And maybe that's SMB2j in there...label picture looks like it could be. Though I'm still searching for a pirated Bubble Bobble in the hopes that I'll find the FDS version on a cart.

Anyone know which game is on the cart with the bat on the label? I've seen it before, but still don't know what game is on it.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: DevIancE on July 11, 2007, 01:21:50 AM
Heh, I'm glad we didn't get into a bid war then. :P

I was in hopes that alot of these carts were legit releases, but now that I look at them, the only ones that look legit are that Technos cart in the bottom left hand corner, that Super C cart, and the TMNT cart...  the rest look like boots to me...  but I'm still green in the Famicom dept. I figured the cart with the bat on the front was an Akumajou Dracula game, or Kid Dracula maybe.

The eBay lot arrived today, so I figured I'd break it down. Starting from the left top...
 
Row 1

This cart is labeled "Raio on Buncelinc Bay" , and says it's made by Hudson Soft, but it's really Topgun :/

This one is Legend of Kage, and is also copyrighted by Hudson Soft

115 in 1

Bootleg Contra (Japanese Version)

Mario 2 Boot

Bubble Bobble Boot

Batman boot ...   :(

Row 2

Double Dragon II boot

Double Dragon boot

Mag Max boot

B-Wings boot

Top Gun boot

Row 3

Mario 3 boot

31 in 1

1300 in 1

64 in 1

The other two rows are all legit carts. I wish alot of these weren't boots, but I still didn't come out to bad.

the last row (the one with the two oversized carts)

I thought they were from the pics as well, but when I got them, I found out they have Jaleco engraged into them in the top left corner along with the famous Jaleco symbol.

This cart is labeled "Raio on Buncelinc Bay" , and says it's made by Hudson Soft, but it's really Topgun :/

Are you sure that isn't "Raid on Bungeling Bay" (which is by Hudson).  I can't tell from the picture.

It's probably supposed to be, but it's printed on the label exactly the way I quoted it, and is actually Top Gun, which sucks, because I got two Top Gun boots in that lot, and I hate that game.

you willing to sell some of your boots?

I haven't actually decided if I want to start selling off my boots, or just mix them in with my collection. I have alot of bootleg Famidisks that I've accumlated as well. If I decide to sell them, I'll probably just relist them on eBay in one big lot. I'd be more interested in trading them for  games I want or just some decent LEGIT releases, than selling them.

Holy crap, so Dev IS alive... :D

Yuppers! After I hit 1000 games, I decided to take a break from collecting for a while...  mostly to make  room for more gaming stuff. :P


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on July 13, 2007, 04:39:20 AM
Those Jaleco carts are legit for sure. And I love the way piraters spelled.

Hey, Dev, do you know if that Bubble Bobble is the FDS version? I think the only way to tell is differences in the backgrounds of the EXTEND screens.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: DevIancE on July 13, 2007, 12:06:37 PM
Believe it or not, in all of my years of gaming, I'd never played a Bubble Bobble game until I put in the boot, and played it for a lil' bit yesterday, so I have no idea what the EXTEND screens are. If you can get a screen cap of what I'm looking for though, I'll find out which one it is, and let you know.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on July 13, 2007, 07:10:51 PM
Never played BB. :o What kind of gamer are you! :P I'll track down a screen later, maybe I can get both, but I suck at emulation, so I probably won't be able to. The EXTEND screens happen when you collect every letter, E-X-T-E-N-D. They appear in bubbles and those bubble usually appear when you cluster bubbled enemies together and pop them at the same time. Once you collect all the letters to make the word EXTEND, the game will switch to the EXTEND screen and you'll get 1-up.

Yeah, Bubble Bobble. I don't know if there is an FDS verison in cart form, but that's what I'm searching for. It's possible they ported the FDS version to cart, but because the NES cart version already existed, they might not have cared to port it.

Nice man! For some reason really rare stuff always seems to pop up in Australia. The owner of the Nintendo AVS system (the prototype on display at Nintendo World NYC) is from Austrailia, and the only other "slugger mate" toy I've ever seen was in Australia.

Really? I didn't know the AVS was found in Austrialia. It's weird that some of the stuff that you least expect to find in Australia can be found in Austrialia ;D By the way I was at New York 2 weeks ago and I got to go at Nintendo World to see the Nintendo AVS for real! It's huge and looks like a Commodore 64. I got pics if your interseted. :)

Everytime I visit I take pics so I got plenty hahaha! As far as I know there were 3 NES AVS prototypes made. One was destroyed, ones in Japan, and one is owned by the dude in AUS on loan to Nintendo World. Last time I was there I asked a dude that worked there if it in fact was working in 1985 at CES and he said it was, he didn't now what software it was running however.

you kind of need to work through a contact, PM me and I can hook you up with one. Be prepared to pay a slight buyers fee for each item, and shipping both within japan, and to wherever you are. But the items you find on there you won't find anywhere else, so if you got the loot it's pretty worth it. Just don't let it get out of hand, I had to take a 6 month break from buying, thats how good the stuff on there is!

The only cool one is Metroid. Otherwise, it's like baseball and tennis games. Mr. Gold, Falsion, Section Z. If you get into disk pirate collecting, you'll start to notice which are the common pirates and which are the uncommon. I hadn't come across Metroid yet, but the rest are typical.

Just went in with another forum member and won a FamicomStation that comes with the REALLY RARE gray FamicomStation carts. Usually when you see a FamicomStation, they come with the black FamicomBox carts. I'm getting the carts and the rare as heck Sharp NES controllers.

Was the US cartoon highly censored as well?  I remember it being "Let me see your belly button" :D

And I don't recall what they said about Oolong.

I found out in the game.
That explains the hentai bunny clothes.

Yeah there is one dragon ball movie where goku takes off bulma's panties so I think they would never show that. They showed that movie but took that part out....

10 of the 13 pirated carts arrived today. Some of them were really kewl but the street fighter game plays horrible!! there is also a pokemon game where pikachu is in the forest or something and aladdin 3. Then there is tmnt3, ninja crusaders, and some disneys games as well as tiny toons. The games were so dirty that I had to open some of them up to clean them up in order for them to work.

Exactly...even if you choose Surface or whatever the cheapest is, it's still very expensive. I had to pay the shipping cost of those 300+ carts -- those things are heavy. You don't realize it when you've got one cart in your hand. They really add up.

I'd rather Surface than every type of cancer. Cancer can kill slowly; Surface, while slow as well, can only drive you temporarily crazy. But actually, I'm very patient and don't mind the wait...so sometimes I ship Surface, as I did this time.

The sign costs about $40-$50 to ship, or so I thought.  It has to go via EMS if it's being shipped alone.  It's too large to be shipped via cheap Airmail or Sal.  The cheaper Airmail and Sal rates for items under 2 KG only applies if the item is less than 60 cm long, and the sign is longer than that.  If it's bundled with other items it will be cheaper since it doesn't weigh that much.

Partena's Mirror! It's a really cool game, so if you aren't thinking "awesome" right now, you are wrong! :)

HOWEVER, when I put the disk in, I see the Zelda 1 title screen loading! What's up with that? Seems like somebody put Zelda 1 on it, because it certainly isn't Partena's Mirror. Even though the label of the case as well as both sides of the disk say it is, it clearly isn't!

So I've been playing Zelda 1 today. Man, it's been almost ten years since I last played it. Cool game. I still remember many of the secrets too. Interesting that the sound effects are quite different in the FDS version.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 14, 2007, 12:37:36 AM
Its possible that the disk was rewritten with a different game. Sometimes people will leave the original game on one side and write a different game to the other side. I've never had it happened where I expected it to be one game (because of the cover, labels) and it turned out to be a different one.

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on December 20, 2007, 04:02:54 AM
From my experience with ribbonless converters, the connection between the converter and the cart is tighter than the connection between the converter and the system, so they come out pretty easily. I do, however, prefer to use my converters that have ribbons...because the ones with ribbons are guaranteed to come out every time.

A few weeks back, I outbid Kite200 (sorry about that buddy!) on a Famicom lightgun. Its arrived now, and I have to say I love this thing. So much better then the zapper.

Here's some pictures for intrist.

Interesting to note: the Famicom Light Gun has the trigger that pulls out as if to load it. I don't really understand why its there, because unlike the zapper you can't look through its sight because of the plastic sping that will beat you in the face!

Post by: battra92 on January 22, 2008, 10:32:04 PM
Wow, that's cool. I've thought at times about converting a Zapper to Famicom and then place the guts in a toy gun. Any idea how to do this?

Post by: satoshi_matrix on January 22, 2008, 11:28:49 PM
except thats its barrel looks exactly the same as the Zapper. It only looks like a real gun at a distance. I think the whole thing that NoA had to redesign it is drastically overblown. I mean quite honestly, I've seen cap guns that look more realilistic than the Famicom Light Gun.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Bergasa on January 22, 2008, 11:37:23 PM
BTW, how does this plug into the Famicom? It's not exactly like there are controller ports on the first model.

I have just ordered a copy of Doki Doki Panic  ;D  ;D. I think I payed over the odds for it ($50) but at least it is original:

http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-49-en-70-2jci.html

They seem to be scarce on Ebay however, I did bid on one recently but I got out bid by a sniper (the bastard). It ended on $40 - loose disk with case only so I was not prepared to pay anymore for it as I had a limit. Back in Dec I was going to purchase a loose disk copy version from Toysonline but I really wanted the original CIB.

This game seems to increase in value, I have been told that a CIB should go for $20. After all it is one of the most talked about disk games due to it being SB2 predecessor.

(first post, woohoo! howdy)

came upon this at a shop by chance. was the only thing remotely interesting (apparently had been sitting there for years)

was sealed when bough.

it's actually a 'port' (lol) of Lethal Enforcers. Go Go 1994 appears when you beat a stage,

no digitised graphics here - all the scenes from the arcade game appear to be here in sprite form.

picture shows a bunch of other pirate and sachen carts I picked up of late. yup at the top is summer carnival '92:Recca. stoked beyond belief to have found this one.

good pirate (fami and md) games are becoming way hard to find these days. but I'm up to the challenge.


so anyone ever heard of this pirate before? first time I have. manual comes in both japanese and 'english' (just barely comprehensible, not too bad though).
is this a japanese made pirate?
love this crap

I've never heard of Lethal Weapon/Lethal Enforcers, but it sounds cool if it's really a port. I'll have to get it added to the games list. No doubt there's all kinds of "crap" out there we don't know about. I've never even heard of that Go Go company. And that Recca is cool. Very hard to find...there are some pirates I've been trying to find for a couple years now.

I'd tell you, but then that would tip you off. ;D One of them is Recca, which isn't the rarest pirate out there, but certainly hard to find. I've only ever seen two, and both of them weren't for sale. Another hard one to find is Boogerman, but I'm a week away from purchasing two Boogerman carts. Less rare, but still hard to find, is Somari. I've seen a bunch of them but never been willing to put up the cash for it. Perhaps harder to find is the unhacked Somari, that is, the version with Sonic instead of Mario. I think I'm about to have my hands on one of those soon, too.

let me know how it pans out. I can probably pick up boogerman and somari, though for the life of me I can't remember where I saw these. how do I identify an unhacked somari? is it possible by label?

An unhacked Somari is just Sonic the Hedgehog for the Famicom.

There are at least three versions of Sonic the Hedgehog. Two unhacked, and the other is Somari. You can really only be sure by checking the gameplay. No Mario = !!!

YAY! I just got my twin fami from Japan! Only $20 on ebay and came with 5 disks & 5 cartridges! I love it!

I also ordered, but haven't yet received, the Lost Levels SMB which I'm really excited to play--hopefully will arrive in a few days! I just started collecting famicom stuff, now I have over 60 games and several multi-carts. Just wondering what disks are good to get. Any advice? I'm looking for games that are different than the US NES versions.

I have the Family Trainer, 3d glasses, and Arkanoid game & controller for the Fami but don't yet have the light gun or any other controllers. Anyone have something they'd like to sell? I have an original Famicom that I could never get to work (damn!) but was told that it worked when I bought it--maybe trade?? for something.

I've been playing my games on a famiclone which is exactly the same as the Fami but with turbo buttons on the controllers, AV outputs, and no mic on controller #2.

Love the site, btw!

Thanks! -Eric

Shipping was $60, but for a total, that only made like $80 so it was a damn good deal, especially since there were 10 games with it. Guess no one was bidding on it at night when the auction ended. I got it in like 4 days, too, from Japan to Oregon. I rarely get domestic mail that fast.   ;D

Best place to find good pirates is on this and other forums. I get all of mine from people who post ones for sale on forums. It's harder to find them on eBay, and even if you do, they sell for too much.

And I don't know enough about the Sonic games to know exactly how many were made for the Famicom. I've seen at least two different ones, but the screens posted above look like a third, though I've never come across a cart of it.

got  a mario 10 on lock if anyone's interested.


picked up samurai spirits for famicom today (pirate port of the neo geo game). excellent intro, alright character models.


also found an original Final Conflict famicom cart. good game, way too hard off the bat.


also got Master Chu (Sachen famicom cart). nice cart, bad game.

25 dollars shipped from Argentina. which is quite cheap considering the price includes shipping, which is around 9 US dollars if I remember correctly. 

oh and I can get boogerman in multicart (3-in-1), but price is 28 dollars shipped until I find a cheaper source.

who's Hehaji and how much does SMW go for?

Its a toy remote control vacuum cleaner made by Nintendo in 1979 called the "Chiritory". It's been featured in a bunch of the Warioware games usually in 8-bit's levels. I've been looking for one for years and never saw one for sale. Now I have 2!

Haha. That's so fun. So I still think that cowboy dude you shoot and he collapses is the coolest. Though Duck Hunt ain't bad either.

I got some stuff coming in the mail:

Boogerman
Bubble Bobble -- cross fingers, might be the FDS version
Donkey Kong Country
Dragon Ball Z 2
Fatal Fury 2
Fighter multicart (KOF '98, SF: 12 peoples, Mighty Final Fight)
Harry's Legend
Kart Fighter
Lion King
Mickey Mania
Mortal Kombat: 18 people
Mortal Kombat: 28 people
Power Rangers -- hack  :P
Somari
Sonic the Hedgehog -- unhacked Somari, I think.
Street Fighter: 12 peoples
Super Mario World -- Genesis version?
The Dragon -- cool HK original with Bruce Lee
OMG  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

wow great stuff! looking foward to the reviews.

I have Sonic - it's like Somari but with Sonic- is that the uhacked version?

and please help me id the fds version of bubble bobble!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on March 07, 2008, 10:44:24 PM
Yeah, the unhacked Somari would just put Sonic in place of Mario. I kinda wonder which came first, the Sonic Somari or the Mario Somari. I try to keep a mental list of which games are hacks, but it's tough to say if Somari is a Sonic hack or if Sonic is a Somari hack -- the latter would be strange.

And I don't know if the FDS version of Bubble Bobble exists. I'll keep buying Bubble Bobble carts until I find it, even if I never do. It would be much easier for pirate makers to port the NES version instead of porting the FDS version. And the difference between the two is so slight that there wouldn't be too much demand for the FDS version as a cart.

You'll see reviews of these over the next few months, if I can find the time. I still don't have them to test them out for myself; I can't wait for them to arrive.

Porting FDS games to cartridges is usually a great hassle for pirates. You have to recreate the entire FDS BIOS on the cart (which is a whopping 8KB) or at least the parts that the game calls (which is usually called a hacked FDS BIOS), also you need to recreate the FDS interrupt signal using the system clock and some TTL integrated circuits. And don't even mention things like remapping cart memory, removing loading screens, etc. Take a look at your SMB2j cart and you'll see it has loads and loads of chips, since SMB2j is a disk only release it's justifiable, but if there's a cart release why get through all that hassle when you can just copy the PRG and CHR and call it a day? Not to mention it's cheaper (less chips per cart) :P.

You can add Toy Story (not the crappy hack, but the port) and Dance Dance Revolution to the list. These two are particularly interesting to me. Dance Dance is so unexpected (but I hear it sucks) and I never knew Toy Story existed. There was an SMB hack with Woody or something, but this Toy Story is supposed to be an original.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on March 10, 2008, 03:26:56 PM
Is Dance Dance Revolution the one which comes with those DDR-pad type Famiclones? Because that's what they are: a Famiclone w/o cart slot (gloptop ROM directly connected to NOAC) and a DDR-style pad for controller. Never imagined that a cart version existed, or that somebody underwent the hassle of dumping the ROM from one of those.

I have a bomberman hack with woody as  protagonist in one of the multicarts I have, maybe that's the cheap hack you mean?


I found what I thought was a coolspot cart, but appears to be snake rattle and roll with a hacked title screen (called 7up 2)- not sure if any other aspect of it is hacked. the cart label is lovely.

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on March 16, 2008, 02:40:16 AM
It's definitely a pirate. The original has a white cart: HERE (http://page8.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h55711890). The label looks like an exact of the real label or box or something. Pirates of Snow Bros. are pretty common. I'd put it's worth at no more than $5. I paid $2 for mine. The real thing, cart only, would probably be worth closer to $20.

Got some of my stuff today! Here's what I think:

Boogerman
(awesome, but I couldn't figure out how to navigate the second part of the first level!)

Bubble Bobble
(it's the FDS version! How can you tell: The selection screen doesn't have the password option and the EXTEND screen is all those cookie looking things instead of cookies/letters)

Dragon Ball Z 2
(crappy original fighter, but the dudes fly/jump at each other instead of walking/jumping -- that's a cool feature)

Fatal Fury 2
(crappiest fighter I've ever played; highly not recommended)

Fighter multicart (KOF '98, SF: 12 peoples, Mighty Final Fight)
(KOF is OK; SF is standard stuff)

Harry's Legend
(very cool original plaformer. I expected it to be a hack of that magic carpet game, but it's not! it's quite fun and the boss [same throughout it seems] gets harder and harder)

Kart Fighter
(second crappiest fighter I've ever played; I don't get why people want this game)

Lion King
(cool and just like the Genesis version, I think. Simba is cute as hell)

Mortal Kombat: 18 people
(typical but fun)

Mortal Kombat: 28 people
(typical and not as fun)

Power Rangers -- hack  :P
(boring, 'cause it's only a title screen hack)

Somari
(really fun, but I would prefer a version with Sonic instead of Mario)

Sonic the Hedgehog
(not unhacked Somari; a completely different version of Sonic -- really fun, but I already have this version)

Street Fighter: 12 peoples
(typical)

Post by: Mr. Gimmick on March 16, 2008, 02:53:22 AM
Onoez got ripped off then lol :P Well at least it'll be a fun game ...
BTW whats the easiest way to tell if a game is a pirate without knowing what the original looks like? By the way, it looks like it has a copyright date on the cart, is that usual for pirated games?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on March 16, 2008, 02:58:44 AM
Copyrights are very unusual on pirated carts. Usually you can tell a fake by its label, but in this case, the label is near perfect. So, with most pirates, the label will be overkill (holographic or have images that don't belong to the game [such as a 3D-looking Mario]) or there won't be a copyright or company name on the label. But, when the label looks real, you can usually tell by the shape of the cart. There are only 5 or 6 different shapes of carts. Taito carts have two shapes, Konami carts have two shapes, and then most carts have a similar shape. You just have to take time to look at legit carts to know the difference. Color also matters. While Famicom carts came in almost any color, pirates are usually an ugly neon green, mustard yellow or your standard black.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Mr. Gimmick on March 16, 2008, 03:01:00 AM
Thanks for the info   :)

I basically looks like they enlarged the image from the original label. Its interesting that its so similar to the original as many of the other pirates i've seen on here look very different. It'll be interesting to see what that text is at the bottom left corner when i get it. Also, do pirates usually have labels on the back?

wow. so.. that's awesome, could be worth a bit. doubt it's too common. what other fds games (apart from mario) got converted to cart (unoficially)?

Fatal Fury 2

yeah? I played alot worse. I liked it for what it was infact  :P

the game's just bizzaro, but has alot of Nintendo appeal I feel.

yeah good game for  sure. another variation on Aladin/Boogerman etc. right?

Mortal Kombat: 18 people

any fatalities?

Sonic the Hedgehog
(not unhacked Somari; a completely different version of Sonic -- really fun, but I already have this version)
which Sonic is this? is it the same one as I posted pics of in my selling thread?



Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on March 16, 2008, 05:08:26 AM
FDS Bubble Bobble as a cart is probably more common than we think. I bet most people who own pirated carts of it just don't know how to tell the difference. But, who knows, I may have just gotten very lucky, considering this is the first Bubble Bobble pirate I've ever purchased. Samurai Spirits and Doki Doki Panic are two disk-exclusives that were ported; and there have to be others.

I'll work on some quick reviews of these games. That Harry Potter game is neat. The levels are very short. It can probably be beaten in 15 minutes with a little bit of practice. And because the levels are short, I'm convinced it's an original, not a hack -- but it's never certain until other people have a look at it. Lion King is very similar to those other games, you're right. MK has blood splatter but no fatalities. I've never come across a version of MK that has them. And the Sonic looks like the one you posted. There seem to be more variations of Sonic than I thought.

in any case if it is a port of the SNK game then it must certainly be unlicenced.

I used to buy every pirate lot I came across, and then, like you, I got tired of getting the same games. This is especially true of multicarts...so boring after a while, unless you find some weird hacks on them, which is tough to do. I've gotten much more selective about the pirates I buy, only looking for the ones I'm really interested in, but my "wants" list is getting short.

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on April 26, 2008, 03:24:16 PM
I had one of those. Back in 2001 a friend was cleaning his closet and found an old 386 and two Famiclones. He gave them to me, one was a NEX-like and the other was this one. Both were burned out, but I could salvage the built in games from the Genesis-like Famiclone ;D. One weird thing about it was that it had a sticker on the bottom that said 'This unit only broadcasts on Channel 12' when all Famiclones I've ever seen broadcast on channel 3!

Needless to say, people around here tend to fry their Famiclones with incompatible power supplies >:(


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nurd on April 26, 2008, 08:16:30 PM
Heh.

I'm sure the box has hilarious Engrish on it.

Also- How do you salvage the built in games?


Aren't they... built in?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on April 27, 2008, 03:49:18 AM
Well the box was in Spanish (apparently some kind of localization), and surprisingly, it was pretty good :P.

As for the built in games... Some Famiclones have their built in games in an auxiliary board, plugged into a secondary cart slot inside the system. If that's the case the only thing you need to do is remove the board and there you have it. I managed to salvage lots of good multicarts that way, with a large number of games and rare hacks/pirate originals. My next step is usually to transplant them into a crappy multicart shell for protection and ease of use. I've mentioned this here before, with some forum members having the same degree of success as me ;).


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nurd on April 27, 2008, 01:31:51 PM

Can you put real famicom game boards into the thingy, to play whatever games you might already have?

Feels extremely light,

It's just a famicom on a chip, no built in games that I know of, yet. I haven't tested it out yet, because I dont know if the power thing will work in America. :P

Also, They gave me a weird rubik's cube, for some reason.

There is no proof that is what happened. Even if that were the case, the seller probably won't give you a new one because as stated, there is no proof you didn't do something to it. By all means try though I suppose.

Solder, Electrical tape, ten heat shrink tube.


Put the tube on the wire and slide it down, so it's out of the way. Once it's soldered and electrical taped, slide the tube over it and heat it up. :P

How is kid Icarus?

I played the demo on Smash Bros and it seems pretty good.

I have the disk, but I need a new belt. :(


Anyone have an extra? :P

It's an awesome game. I like it when pit gets hit you hear a real voice...so advanced for its time. What a great game! I really recommend it! Oh yeah if anybody has an extra belt as well I could be interested. I heard they break easily.

Post by: michaelthegreat on May 23, 2008, 05:56:53 AM
found a power joy voyager at a yard sale. It's one of those "250 in one" tetris games and a famiclone in one. The power switch has 3 spots, one for off, one for tetris, and one for famiclone. The famiclone is tv out only (rca plugs on the top). The screen is black and white only and plays just like all those other 250 in one tetris games. The controllers are tied to one another and the player 2 controller has a light gun built in which works suprisingly well. Player 1 can use either a controller or the "gameboy thing" (so you don't have to bring the controllers for 1 player play). The famiclone cart is about an 80 in one with no repeats. The cart is the size of a gameboy cart which is pretty weird for a famiclone. Anybody have any more games for one of these? Oh, and it takes 4 triple-a batteries or wall wart.

I don't know why I've been finding famiclones lately at yard sales and thrift stores. I'm in the middle of nowhere Alaska. I have no idea where these people got them. Most of the people don't seem to be heavy videogamers...

$4.80USD from New York.

Today, I got a famiclone, like the one popi got. From the same person.
The system itself is slightly different, it says "Super Megason" Instead of "Super Famcom"

The fronts of the controllers say famcom, the backs say megason

It has exactly 42 games built in, they are pretty good

The only problem is that The AC adaptor uses 220V, and it got smashed somehow.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on May 27, 2008, 10:09:04 PM

Yeah it's the same games, but it fits in the back of the gameboy. I wish I had taken another size comparison pic because the cartridge is the same size as an oldskool gameboy cartridge!!!!  Weird, huh?

Well, for those of you who still can't believe it's size: here it is in comparison to a snes game, the voyager power joy (fake gameboy) , and half a stick of butter:

(http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/9563/snesjoybutterkg6.th.jpg) (http://img87.imageshack.us/my.php?image=snesjoybutterkg6.jpg)

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nurd on May 28, 2008, 11:12:40 AM
So it's LIke that Game Admiral Theory thing.

There is a yellow thing that plugs into the cart slot, so you can plugin normal sized famicom games.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: michaelthegreat on May 28, 2008, 04:14:47 PM
I've never seen a yellow thing. This is the only thing I've ever seen of it's type. It seems kinda like a predecesor to the fake gba sized multicarts and systems you sometimes see coming out of china now.

$1 BIN.

DAMN.

Just got a message from seller.

When they were little, they swapped cartridges with a friend, and they got Super Mario Bros.

They hadn't opened this before the auction, so they didn't know.

But, it has the Box, Manual, and that Clear thing for Antarctic adventure, that's pretty good I guess.


Just wondering, about how much is Antarctic Adventure worth?

I played it on a multicart, and it is pretty fun.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on May 31, 2008, 03:06:44 AM
Not much, but $1 is a deal for any Famicom game.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

I just got  a mario hack pirate. The cart comes with Super Mario 2,3,6,9,10,14,and 16. The hacks are OK but it's fun to have Mario 2 and 3 in one cart so I don't have to switch them off every time I want to play them.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on May 31, 2008, 07:48:35 PM
I've seen pirates like that, but I didn't know they had that many SM games on them. That's cool. 10, 14 and 16 seem really common. I wonder why...perhaps they were the most popular. I've had trouble finding some of the Mario hacks.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: michaelthegreat on June 01, 2008, 01:17:40 AM

I don't know, 133. I've never seen the Famiclone. I'm excited to see what songs it's got on it. Here are some shots:

Quote
Product Features:

    * Power Adapter included
    * 50 stereo quality songs, including My Heart Will Go On, Hero, Follow the Sun, If You Were Here, etc.
    * Easy hook-up, connect directly to the TV with RCA/Composite connectors
    * Game is integrated in the dance pad and will show on TV.
    * Power button directly on control unit, instant fun with a push of a button
    * The ultimate dancing game combining fun, excitement, competition, choreography and a great workout
    * Foam Padding: Yes(High-Density)
    * Nintendo Graphics (8 -bit)
    * One TV Dance Pad hooks up to one TV

Here's a video where you can barely see a guy playing one of those http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-w8eNoFMklU
You can clearly hear the Famicom-like music coming from it.

Basically they're Famiclones with no cart & controller ports. They have this Dance Dance Revolution ROM hardwired into the NOAC and the dance pad hardwired as controller 1, everything inside the small plastic shell on the top of the mat. Some of them even come with a pirated version of Nintendo's Pinball, which you play with your feet :P. I see these things every day for 10 bucks at local supermarkets.

So what you got here is the standalone ROM cart version of these pieces of crap. Nice! ;D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on June 02, 2008, 01:53:37 AM
That's curious...I wonder how it'll substitute for the Dance Pad (looks like it'll use the d-pad) and if it'll be decent, since you say the pad version sucks. I guess very few pirate originals are good, so this one probably doesn't have much of a fighting chance.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 02, 2008, 02:11:31 AM
The dance pad is electrically a Famicom controller hardwired into the clone, with the step arrows mapped to the D-pad directions, so in your cart version you'll end up using the D-pad to play. I say it sucks because it's a flimsy piece of hardware like most Famiclones, not because of the software. You'll have to find that out yourself ;).

So basically your cart is the ROM from one of these machines.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nurd on June 02, 2008, 02:34:22 AM
If you have an expansion slot famicom controller, you could make a dance pad. :P


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 02, 2008, 02:45:33 AM
Yeah I guess you could strip one of those Plug&Play dance pads and convert it into a Famicom/NES controller. I'd try to play SMB with my feet or something ;D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on June 02, 2008, 02:50:03 AM
You can buy a legit third-party foot controller for the NES. It's got four or five foot peddles that you use to play any game. I've never tried it, but I've always been interested in buying one. I hear it's tough.

I've bought a few boxed Famicom games recently, the first one, Guardic Gaiden (AKA The Guardian Legend) just turned up yesterday:

(http://img246.imageshack.us/img246/1018/guardicgaidenboxen4.jpg)

As you can see from this second image it's complete with the... whatever it is, that looks like a small poster. It feels kind of felty but it's stiff to the touch. I think it's supposed to be an iron-on t-shirt transfer or something.

(http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/2884/guardicgaidencontentsdz3.th.jpg) (http://img266.imageshack.us/my.php?image=guardicgaidencontentsdz3.jpg)

It's a really nice game although I can see the passwords being a problem as they're over 30 chars long and all in Japanese rather than roman letters and numbers  ??? I'll probably devise a number system for the characters and write them down as numbers.

Sweet stuff yeah it does have the cart slot on the back. The games played great even if your fingers bump into them they won't mess up like the NES does. I brought it to my job the other day to have all the customers awe in front of it wanting to play. I was talking to my boss about trying to make money out of this lol. The TV overthere is not doing anything anyways.

Cool.

What is your job?



Also, does anybody know how to make a timer, that  will turn off anything plugged into it if 25 cents are not put in?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: FamicomFreak on June 08, 2008, 06:01:22 PM
That would be a great idea. It's a restaurant. We do have a timer but it won't turn everything off. We use it for baking bread lol but something like that would rock.

Yeah, I wanted to make some pay-to-play NES system ages ago, I was thinking on rigging the START button to the coin mech, but that would invalidate multicart selections since you'd need to press START twice, but then you could devise a way to let a coin make two START button presses with some logic circuits.

The time idea is also good & easier too. Just use a 555 timer in monostable mode driving a relay, this relay could turn off the entire machine or just the +5V to the controllers rendering them dead until a new quarter has been inserted, and a second 555 could count 10 or 15 seconds before resetting the system in the case the player doesn't want to play anymore. Also you could devise a way to push START before killing the controllers, as a courtesy to the player (imagine if your controller dies in the middle of a game!).

Interesting idea ;D In fact I could sketch up some circuits if there's enough interest.

Here are my latest finds. The 1050 in 1 has a lot of interesting games around 70 complete games and the rest are repeats so still pretty good. The 32 in 1 has many of the basic multi-cart games. I also got my first Super Famicom boxed game and it's a pirate lol. The games that came with it are Mario World, Smash TV, Gradius 3, and Super Tennis. I like Gradius 3 the most! Great stuff!

Pirate SNES/SFC games?

Does it have a weird cartridge, I've never heard of that. Except for that Wisdom Tree game.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 10, 2008, 06:51:14 PM
I had some back in the day. Most of them looked like SFC carts and they didn't need to piggyback on some original cart's CIC chip like Noah's Ark 3D. The majority had no menu (push reset to change the game). Only one that I remember had a pretty bland menu, and it had games that required battery back-up & no battery on the cart itself. That sucks >:(

The cart looks just like a super famicom cart with english wording and stuff.....The games are selectable when you reset the SNES. I used to have another pirate back in the day called Captain Tsubasa 3 and it was in spanish!!! Man how I wish I still had it.

1000 yen? Used my discount I have through JGS to get a test disk - Shogi... which I hope to learn anyway so I'll pay $6 shipped for it... Here's hoping I luck out on it... :D

Nice. Looks like you use SMJ, too? I tried it out for the first time recently. Now I see "cha" everywhere, which used to be "chaos" just a week ago. Yahoo! following eBay, I guess.

Good luck with that Disk System. I hate the FDS...I've got two and they never work for too long before something goes wrong. :P

Hey is that jackie chan game any good? I was thinking of buying the game for 5$ (or was it 3$...?) at my local pawn shop about 2 days ago. The game is complete and boxed but I'm wondering if it's really worth buying.

I'd put it somewhere between less than great but better than boring. It's thoroughly entertaining. Great enemies, great graphics. The Mario hack never engaged me for very long, but I think the original will be more pleasing.

hehe, JC!  They do pop up on auction sites sometimes, but when they do, they get to be expensive.  Generally $30-$100 a piece with some going for even more than that.

Your most common ones are SMB2j, Zelda, Metroid and Disk-kun as they were packaged with the FDS as well.

Disks are untested and some titles don't contain the game that's on the cover the seller wrote.

Yeah, the dude has about 10 lots on YHJ totaling over 500 disks, both very loose and CIB. He had that warning on all of them, and some of the other auctions has just disks without labels, sleeves, etc. I figure he just wrote that on all of them to cover his ass. I'll find out shortly.

Of course, I found out the shipping cost today. I'm gonna do SAL because I'm cheap, but any other option and I'd have paid $2 per disk, instead of about $1.50. And I'll be selling an FDS or two sometime in the near future. I've got five CIB now, I think.

I found this wierd multicart at the flea market.  I found it laying on top of a 3DO and asked the guy running the stand how much?  He asked me what system it was for because he didn't know.  Now obviously if I told him he would jack up the price so I dumbly said "No idea".  He gave it to me for 2 bucks.  You may think it was a maybe an ok find, but the fact that I found it where I found it was amazing.  For some reason my flea market doesn't ever have any pirates so this was very rare to find there.  I was estatic when I found this.

It's very interesting though.  It has hacks similar to Pandamar but with F-1 race being "Boat race" and etc.  I'll post pics tomorrow.

I also saw a Mega Drive game there too, must of been import day or something.  :)

I'm excited to be getting a bunch of carts from Taiwan! While there's a bunch of pirate crap in Taiwan, there are also a bunch of unlicensed originals and hacks. Taiwain happens to be home to Sachen, Hwang Shinwei and many others...

I don't buy to sell; I buy to keep, but sometimes I get extras in bulk buys, so I'll be selling some of what I get.

1945
Altered Beast
BB Car
Bio Miracle hack with Shin Chan
Doki Doki Panic (cart version) x2
Donkey Kong (some hacked game)
Dragon Ball Z 2
Education Fun Game (has PC program clones)
Fatal Fury 2
Fighting Hero
Mahjong Academy
Master Fighter II
Panda Prince
Pyramid
Street Fighter III x2
Street Fighter Zero 2
Super Bros. 6, 9, 13, 16
SMB2j cart (unhacked!)
Super Mario Sonik 2
Super Mario World
Tetris Series (Hwang Shinwei multi)
Thunderbolt II

and two games with no discernable name. Should be fun to play through these. I'll be excited to get Doki Doki Panic, which, even though I have on disk, I've never played. :-[ I'm very curious about Altered Beast, Panda Prince, Thunderbolt II and an unknown boxed game I'm getting (which will probably turn out to be some crappy Chinese RPG.

I was most anticipating my two Doki Doki Panic carts -- and now that I've played both, I can confirm that, yes, they are Doki Doki Panic...not some crappy Super Mario USA hack. Really cool. I've never played the disk version, even though I own it. But the carts have all the Doki Doki Panic characters, no running, the crappy slot machine game with just a plain screen, etc.

Oh, and the unknown boxed game I got is Pao Ching Tien.

Doki Doki Panic carts?!  :o :o :o
Pics please!!!

I'd also love to see pictures of the cart board, I'm curious to see if the pirates used the same approach to port disk games to cart as used with the common SMB2j pirates, but I don't want to push you. If you don't feel comfortable with opening up your Famicom carts, I understand :).

Post by: JC on September 18, 2008, 02:08:17 PM
Haha, I was just talking with michaelthegreat about whether or not to open the carts. I don't feel like I should because they're the classic Nintendo-style carts, not cheap plastic pirate carts. But I'm curious to see the boards, too. I have one of the original unhacked SMB2j pirates with the really large board that makes the cart look like a mini NES cartridge -- these carts are nearly that big, but one of them feels much heavier than the other.

I'll post pics here later.

The General Label was placed over another label; you can see the pink at the top. I've seen other carts with this General Label, but they don't always have Doki Doki on them. And Whirlwind Manu. must be the company responsible for the cart; I've seen that name on a lot of older pirates.

Cool, I have a cart just like that, with the same artwork placement and fonts. Only difference is that the case is blue. And I literally only have the cart.

I bought mine sometime around '94 from a thrift store along with various other cheap carts for obsolete systems, solely because I wanted to see what was in them. Even as a kid I knew about the SMB2/DDP story and I just [/i]had[/i] to take it apart. A year or so later I lost the PCB in a spring cleaning and I'm still kicking myself for it to this day. From what I remember it used classic ROM chips, no lame gloptops; is that one the same way?

In a frail attempt to look for an "nes famicom pirate" on eBay, I was inadvertently redirected to "nes famicom" , which brought up many results, where I stumbled upon this:

Oddly, the starting price matched the BIN price, which I zealously accepted.  Good price, is it not?

I would like to share the Disk System i bought a few weeks ago with you, a new one! It was quite expensive but worth every penny! 180 $ was my price, and as I read here on the forum, that's not too much for a new one :) pfiew, haha

Hope you enjoy it :)

Videomation
Pro Wrestling (FDS to cart port)
F15 City War
Samurai Showdown II
Mario Fighter II
8 in 1 -- forget what's on it
Samurai Spirits -- the Rex version
Zanac (FDS to cart port)

I've finally had time to play through some of these games. I'm gonna have to rate Samurai Showdown III by Rex as having the most elegant intro I've seen. It's got these wonderful pink flower petals that fall from the top of the screen while it shows the Rex logo, a intro statement about samurai and the title screen. It's the same title screen from Sachen's Samurai Spirits. Does anyone know if Sachen's has these petals?

Also, I have no clue how to play any of the Chinese originals because of the language barrier. The dip switch cart is great fun. It leave me wondering which came first: dip switch multicarts, "reset" multicarts, or menu screen multicarts. I'd put them in that exact order. The Darkwing Duck/Rockman hack is notable for a nice title screen that calls the hack Rockman 5. Videomation, which is a MS Paint clone, is great fun; I wish we all had it so we could have art competitions. Balloon Monster is probably the best for its gameplay.

I've got a couple games I don't know much about, so I'll post screens at some point to inquire.

I just picked up a defective FDS from ebay.  The powerboard was shot due to battery corrosion. However, there was a perfectly working 7206 drive in it.  I tested it and it works.  A 7206 drive allows doesn't have "write protection" so programs like Copy Master, Disk Hacker, and Disk Keeper work.

So, after what seems like forever, I finally have a Famicom! It's next to me right now. It... didn't come with any games though. So, this topic is, well, for recommendations. I'm already set on getting MOTHER, Challenger, and Atlantis no Nazo. There are others, but I'll worry about them for later. Any games that are good that I can put on hold? I don't mind text heavy RPGs (I actually want to get FFI&II), and I have no Disk System (yet), so don't recommend those as of now. You can also talk about games that never made it in the U.S., or the first time you got a Famicom.

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: FamicomFreak on November 15, 2008, 04:27:39 PM
Maybe but then again you could probably change something in it to make it run ntsc.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 15, 2008, 07:24:49 PM
My assumption would be that there's nothing within the device itself that discriminates between PAL and NTSC, but that the device only communicates with the lockout chip in the system and the lockout info in the cart. Now, since NTSC games are locked out of PAL systems and PAL games are locked out of NTSC systems, the device might discriminate between the different lockout versions.

That's correct, JC.
The game slot communicates the entire cart except for the lockout chip to the system, while the piggyback slot only communicates the lockout chip part of the cartridge to the system. In a nutshell, it allows you to 'swap' the lockout chip from a cartridge with another one from another cartridge.

To play NTSC games on your PAL console, plug a NTSC game into the game slot and a PAL game into the piggyback slot.
To play PAL games on your NTSC console, plug a PAL game into the game slot and a NTSC game into the piggyback slot.

But since it's so easy to leave a NES console region-free, I wouldn't bother doing all this. Just cut pin 4 and be happy :).

BTW JC, How's the quality of the ribbon cable on the HES Unidaptor? Is it sturdy enough like IDE cables? Hard to bend? etc.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on November 15, 2008, 08:01:14 PM
Well, I guess the Unidaptor's only necessary if you intend to protect the integrity of the NES by not cutting the pin. I don't have the device yet, so I can't mess with it to find out what it does, etc. I'll let you know more soon, 133MHz.

Gaiapolis
Tap-tap mat (CIB) -- only $10 from Taiwan! (costs $30 from Japan)
Rocman X -- x2 (one for sale)
Time Diver Avenger
Shin-chan -- that one by Future Media
Akumajou Dracula -- FDS port (I missed an auction for AKII FDS port :()
Mali and Lugi Fighting
Fatal Fury Special -- I think; either that or Sonic and Knuckles; Taiwan auctions can be confusing
Werewolf 2 -- did Altered Beast have an official sequel?
AV Beautiful Girl Fighting (for sale, unless it has differences from what i've got)
9 game lot -- a few originals (will sell pirates of licensed games)
Street Fighter II -- I hope it's the real thing and not one of the many hacks
Mario Pizza Pop!
7 in 1 -- with Somari and 6 Mario hacks (for sale, I think)

And then I'll be getting about 4 or 5 of the Chinese original RPGs.

How is Doki Doki Panic? Does it save/password/nothing?

Also, Double Dragon IV?

And is Arumana no Kiseki the FDS game?  I'd seriously like to get a (pirate) cart of that.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on December 15, 2008, 09:01:35 PM
The Arumana no Kiseki is a disk, but carts exist, too. I've been wanting to pick one up, but they seems to be less common then Doki carts. I have no clue what DDIV will turn out to be, but I should get the carts within a week and I'll let you know. Doki is exactly like the disk, only no save or password, which makes sense, though they had enough skill to port it from disk, which it seems no one has tried otherwise.

Exactly, It's a hack of Target Renegade:

I have this "Double Dragon IV" cart, but it's slightly different from the one in the video (look at the title screen):

Sorry for the bad quality, the pics are more than a year old and I didn't have a proper camera at that time.

BTW, I love Arumana no Kiseki!! Great game!

That's right, and it applies to many other products as well (not only electronics). I think most of us must have seen "SONI" headphones and stuff like that somewhere... or even ugly engrish text in bootlegs that would otherwise look almost identical to the original thing, even when sometimes they copy the exact brand's name... I once saw a "Nike" (bootleg, but the same name) sports wristwatch with "Michael Jordon" written in it!!!

If using water, be sure to dry it off thoroughly and quickly since it can corrode the contacts and leave salt deposits in them.
Isopropyl alcohol is the best option, a bottle of the stuff is about a dollar at your favorite electronics store. If not available, rubbing alcohol's good too.

Er... I'm not too sure, but I think that the sides are the most crucial spot, since that's where the cart slot... like... contacts them.

Try to clean as much as you can. Alcohol dries quickly and doesn't leave any residue on the pins so don't worry ;).

Well, there were some official pulse line releases outside of Japan, where the game itself was developed in Japan and it was assembled somewhere else, I'd assume since the labels don't say "Made in Japan" on them like the Japan pulse lines. Other than that, the onle games that didn't make it to Japan were unlicensed or pirated.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: L___E___T on January 11, 2009, 11:18:22 PM
Hmm I guess so for pirates, but even for companies like Konami that would have manufactured units in say China or Taiwan, they'd still have been shipped to the HQ/warehouses in Japan I would have thought.

Ok so not ALL games, but you get my drift :P

Um... I hit it with a hammer. I hit it on the back,(I didn't think it was a working cart) and the side tabs opened or whatever. After that I could just pull it apart. It's still in pretty good condition(like tiny cracks where the tabs are).


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: L___E___T on January 17, 2009, 07:25:39 PM
Actually, if you're not worried about the state of the tabs a method that always works is to force slide coins into the gaps at the botom, then get some cloth over your hands, grab the sides and pull apart (near the contacts) with raw man powa!   The cloth will keep your hands from getting cut if you don't like the sight of blood for whatever reason.

3d world runner didn't use Nintendo's 3D system goggles, it just used Squares 3D sunglasses. I believe it was the only game to use Squares 3D sunglasses too.

Wouldn't they still work though?  I guess I'm not exactly sure what the goggles do..I just thought you plugged them in to the Famicom, turned them on, and played in 3D..

Please tell me..

But I am planning to get 3D Hot Rally from Famicomshop in the future. :)




English link to JJ please?

Check out the link in Turbo D's post. Here's the full name of JJ; I don't think it was released for the NES, but I could be incorrect:
Jumpin' Jack: Tobidase Daisakusen Part II

They don't work right with 3d Worldrunner because of the way the game displays.

Basically, you plug in the goggles into the front of the Famicom or side of the Twin Famicom and press select once the game is ready to play and you have the goggles on. Pretty easy. :P

How would it be different from just wearing 3D glasses and staring at a TV?

Post by: ericj on January 20, 2009, 11:05:40 PM
The lcd shutters inside the goggles shift from left to right blocking out one eye's vision at a time to coincide with the image displayed on the tv. The color stays the same, unlike the blue/red shift in 3d glasses games. So, it looks like it's in 3d. I have 2 pair so a friend can watch or play while wearing the 3d goggles, too.

Post by: nintendodork on January 20, 2009, 11:11:07 PM
That's crazy awesome!  It actually stays the same color, which is cool, but you could still technically use these in any game, even if it wasn't made for them?  Have you ever tried this?  And the fact that you have two makes me feel I should take one of them :P

I do know where I can get one CIB for an awesome price..but I have no money right now..


Also, WANT LIST UPDATED


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: ericj on January 20, 2009, 11:13:36 PM
You only get the 3D effect with the games listed in the thread. There is no effect with other games. I guess you could still wear them if you want, though. And, sorry, I want both pairs that I have.  8)

Post by: nurd on January 20, 2009, 11:19:16 PM
The Famicom 3D head goggles thing had llike blinking off to on LCD things, so you could only see a part of the screen blinking in each eye.

Where did you get all of this money.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on January 20, 2009, 11:24:01 PM
Ah, ok...
I respect your decision :P

Er, so I'm not gonna get the Rockman 6-1 I mentioned earlier, for those who expressed an interest in buying it. :'(

I will, however, be getting these, I think:

Brush Roller
Kid Icarus -- hoping it's an FDS port
Puzzle
Super Lion King 2
Master Fighter VI -- and I plan to sell my boxed MFVI
Street Fighter X Turbo -- which I hadn't heard of until now
Yuu Yuu Hakusho 97 V -- probably a dumb title screen hack
And a lot with 5 extras I'll be selling

I'm still not supposed to be buying stuff -- saving for the trip -- but I couldn't pass up some of the rarer ones, like Puzzle and Kid Icarus (if that turns out to be the port).

Post by: L___E___T on January 22, 2009, 04:58:21 PM
Blatant PM sent!

It works differently because each eye display has it's own signal, so far as I know.  So, that's how each eye works in real life - combine the two and you have the illusion of 3D.

That's how I understand it, but I've never actually used mine! So, I could be wrong but the theory is bang on.

manuel, what's on that cart? we're waiting.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: manuel on February 04, 2009, 07:31:41 AM
It's Super mario Bros.

But with the switch to the left (wehn I remember right), the graphics show an unusual glitch that's hard to explain. From the left side of the screen graphics from the far right are shown... I think I should take a video of that. This way Mario can stand in mid-air and can seemingly jump through blocks. It's weird, but interesting.
The label is beautiful, it shines greenish when held into a light source.  :D

What could this one be worth?
Has anybody seen something like that before?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on February 04, 2009, 06:28:21 PM
Uhm...Dream Mary perhaps?

Also, got Stack-Up in a pawn shop today..it feels heavy, has 5 screws...and well...it's Stack-Up...
Can I just smash this thing open?  So I can take it's delicious Famicom converting fruits, because I don't have the fancy screwdriver...or is there another less-violent way?

Don't smash it :P

Try that Pen melting thing for the screws, I hear that works.

Or try to drill the screws away.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on February 04, 2009, 07:25:20 PM
Ehh...I may just pry it with a hammer or something..you know?  With the not-blunt side of the hammer

EDIT: Got it open..I sawed off the top hollow part first..but then I unscrewed the other 3 screws with a flathead.. the screws look tiny to me...but if I could get it open with just a regular flathead, apparently that means they've been replaced...

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: son_ov_hades on February 04, 2009, 09:34:06 PM
First of all the early NES games used normal flat screws, you didn't need to saw anything.

Using the converter to play Famicom games is really easy. All you have to do is break the tabs off the sides, these were used to secure the converter to the cart shell. I used  set of lock pliers but just about anything will break those things off. Once you get those off take the Stack Up board out and replace with a Famicom cart. The cart has to be backwords just like the Stack Up board. Insert into your NES and play.

You don't have to break the tabs off, you can just flip the converter upside down. No need to damage it.  ;)


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

I tried that but the tabs still got in the way of my Star Wars cart. I got the Gyromite I found it in for 4 bucks so no big deal breaking the tabs.

So it should look like this? (Minus the tabs on the black part)

I think the Mahjong you mean is Mahjong Solitaire, a game where you have to match 2 identical looking tiles.
The real Chinese Mahjong is played by 4 players.

Damn nice, very good game, built on the same engine as Solbrain/Shatterhand. It's a bit short and easy though and the boss fights suck.

That seems like the most likely explanation, customs tends to open up packages that look weird or look suspicious during an X-ray.

All of my games I imported from Japan have Canadian stamp marks on them, so maybe companies send things to Canada and then to the USA in order to bypass them doing that.

Ah I didn't think about customs, that's very probable. And yes this is my first Famicom.

I don't know about the USA, but in Germany customs will put a sticker on the parcel stating that the packet was opened for investigation.
I guess the handling was just very rough, which is a shame.


But I'm glad you got it somewhat safely.  :D

Now gotta look for my post in the feedback thread and add a nice positive for Geoff. :)

That's awesome!  You should shoot for the boxes and such to make it CIB, Carl has all the papers and a box for sale for $30 I think if you want it :)
Oh, and how much did you get it for since it was working?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: manuel on February 20, 2009, 02:22:14 AM
It was 43$ including shipping and Duck Tales. The Famicom alone was 23$.

I'm not interested in the boxes and such, I don't have much money and I could get a few games for that price. Plus this isn't the nicest console cosmetically, if I'm gonna go CIB I'll get a nice looking one haha.

Hey Geoff
Get some 10-15% hydrogen peroxide, Oxy-Clean laundry booster, a rubbermaid bin, some sunlight and return the original whiteness to your Famicom!  ;D:P

I'm dying to try that method on some of my systems. It doesn't damage stickers or painted logos, and it chemically restores the plastic to its original state!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Tupin on February 20, 2009, 10:30:13 PM
I think the Penguin uses IR sensors and has one controller port.

One day there will be a Famiclone that's nothing but a pin slot, AV out, power cord, controller port, and power/reset button. The circuitry keeps getting smaller, the possibilities are endless.

The Retro Duo is the best clone available. That includes Famicom support with an adapter, it's one of only two systems that can actually run the Disk System, the other being the NEX.

I have a Famiclone whose circuit board is as big as four SIM cards. We're already there, it's just that Chinese pirates like to leave loads of empty space inside clones :P. Given current NoAC technology, I could probably cram an entire Famiclone inside half of a Famicom cart! :)

The Retro Duo is the best clone available. That includes Famicom support with an adapter, it's one of only two systems that can actually run the Disk System, the other being the NEX.

I have a crappy PolyStation clone (PSX lookalike) that works with the FDS. I know that some clones won't work with it (my keyboard clone being one of them) but it's not rare or unique to find a clone that does work.

Nintendo really wanted to get away from the Disk System by 1988, the system wasn't even on shelves within a year after Mario 3 was released in Japan.

SMB3 uses an expansion chip, which FDS games are incapable of using.  If SMB3 were released on the FDS, it would have had to have been a much simpler game.

Here ya go...it actually seems to be cheaper to get stuff online than in person in these countries, for the most part. I didn't buy anything in Japan because all the games were too expensive, except Baseball, etc. (I'll post a few store/game pics later.) I bought two games in Korea, because I only wanted Korean exclusives, though I regret not buying Decathlon which is an unlicensed original import. And I bought about 10 games in Taiwan and a couple were thrown in for "free" -- crappy ones.

The Korean games were 5,000 won each, so about $3.50 each. I think one's Korean Igo (?) -- it's just Go. And the other is The General's Son, a fighter. The Chinese games were about $7 each. The same price I'd pay online. I ended up buying only games I couldn't find online. The two free games was pirated Jurassic Boy 2 by Sachen and Image Fight.

You certainly didn't find the right shops in Tokyo. You probably went to the overpriced ones.  :D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on February 24, 2009, 04:23:26 PM
Probably right. I knew nothing about video game shops in Tokyo until I arrived and visited a few. They had stacks of games like Hitler no Fukkatsu; all the good games were like $25-40 (and therefore mostly cheaper online). At least Japan had game shops. Korea and Taiwan didn't, from what I saw. The place I got the games in Taiwan was an open air market, and it was just a stand set up in a side alley.

They're Chinese RPGs that steal bits and pieces from other games and use the same basic RPG engine. They're really subpar and impossible to play if you don't know Chinese. I've bought about 20 of these Chinese games and only found one that's not an RPG. I'll keep looking.

World of Card Game
Super Bros. 4
Super Contra 5
Lethal Weapon
Super 4 in 1 (Sachen)

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: djdac on March 16, 2009, 04:07:30 AM
They are full games. They were $25 each, dont know if I paid too much or not. And I just won baseball and golf famicom box station carts for $12 each.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on March 16, 2009, 04:11:27 AM
FB carts on average used to sell in the US for about $20 each. $25 isn't bad for those two, and $12 sounds like a steal.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on March 16, 2009, 04:14:30 AM
I guess they won't work on a stock NES, due to the lockout chip differences. Maybe disabling the CIC would do the trick.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Medisinyl on March 16, 2009, 04:17:38 AM
/\  Would that apply to an NES that has had the lockout pin removed?  I removed it from mine back when I got Ufouria (PAL).  I didn't even know about the famicom box carts until recently.  They look really cool (mostly in reference to the black ones, though I know the grey ones are worth more).


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

I figured that is what that meant, and that is what I had done.  Guess if I ever get one I can try it out.  I think I read somewhere that they will work on a famicom with a converter.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: djdac on March 16, 2009, 06:23:22 AM
I put one of them in my NES just to see if it would work. All I could see was the title screen then it would keep blinking on and off. But the carts do work on a famicom with a converter, I tried it and it plays perfectly.

I put one of them in my NES just to see if it would work. All I could see was the title screen then it would keep blinking on and off. But the carts do work on a famicom with a converter, I tried it and it plays perfectly.

Takes a matter of minutes to remove the lockout...should do it and try it again  ;D

Just arrived.  Plays and looks more like Tiny Toons than any Castlevania game :P...  even then, the multidirectional shooting and special shots is more like Holy Diver.  Seems like a great game though (some parts are rather like Rock/Mega Man).  However,  I'm having an issue getting the game not to crash...the contacts look great, and I used electric contact cleaner on them after getting a gray screen at first, then the game came up garbled, then I decided to blow into it, and that made it work for a while, then it crashed..wouldn't come back on until being blown in again...  Seems like the game should be fine--is there anything I can do to make the contact better without blowing, etc.?  (may try it on the NES with a converter and game genie later).

Try rubbing the contacts with a q-tip dipped in contact cleaner or alcohol, just spraying them isn't enough.
Also check that the cart fits snugly inside the system and it doesn't move around.

If nothing works, there might be something loose inside the cart (cold solder joints).

That is what I did... Q-tip with contact cleaner...I clean everything with contact cleaner :P.... It cleans cartridges, labels, etc. without damaging or discoloring them, and gets sticker residue off instantly.

/\  I plan on getting that at some point.  I've seen it written Gal force before as well, which makes more sense as girl force (looks to be what it is based on the cover)...gall is a different word from gal.

Kid Dracula works in the NES without any problems...  weird as there are a few games I have that won't work in the NES, but work on the famicom with an adapter.  However, can the NES not handle as much as the famicom?  At the part where there are 4 platforms spinning on several wheels before riding on the monorail thing, the famicom played it without slowing down at all, but on the NES, whenever I jumped from wheel to wheel, the game would slow down and become a little bit choppy like when there are too many sprites on the screen.  Any explanation?  Or does going through an adapter and game genie have something to do with that?

EDIT: Fixed double post. --JC

I'm pretty sure its Gall Force, that's the title of the OVA its based off of.

Odd, I know. Even weirder, it has no save option. WTF?

It is GAL FORCE not GALL FORCE.  Some places for whatever reason used to misprint the title.  I'm a huge fan of the various animes, so please forgive my flashback to 1990s Japanimation Otaku Fanboi coming out in me.  Katty FTW! Making me want to bust out all my old VHS tapes of that series.  ***How does the game play BTW?  It's one of those games along with Dirty Pair that I want but don't have an FDS system nor Famicom Twin.  One day maybe.

You my friend are absolutely RIGHT.  I never noticed the smaller "L" on my box covers.  I always figured that was just a little thingy put there, sort of how I always use asterisks when wanting to emphasis a *word*, and sometimes the swiggly line ~when listing things.  Never saw it as part of the title.  I stand corrected sir.  ;D

It's a really good shooter, one of those games that will wear on your thumb unless you have a turbo controller.

Hmm... thanks for the reply.  Makes me want to track down an FDS and the game even more now.  But right now I'm going to keep on with the SFC collecting.  Never thought the day would come that I'd actually be liking it over my beloved Mega Drive, but I've just about had it with that system.  Save Bare Knuckle 2 and a few other "can't live withouts".

Got these in the mail yesterday...  SMB1 with SMB2 written on the back (with the SMB2 label...around 17 stars on the SMB2).  And the 4 in 1 from Dante Vale, which is by far the cheapest quality pirate cart I own (extremely flimsy case with a very short glob-top board).  Not that I was expecting anything better, though the games are interesting...  Yet the Harry Potter game (not sure what it is a hack of) has got to be the most disturbing game I've played--for whatever reason, the music just seems really bizarre and hearing it while looking at what appears to be a naked harry potter humping a broomstick while the "broomstick" is flapping around is just...odd.

$17 at Rising Stuff:

Also, if I may ask, how much is the Twin?

I'm paying 70 (I'm in the UK, buying from someone locally) including shipping, so that's about $100 at the current exchange rate. That's a lot fewer dollars than than this time last year when I first started getting into Famicom stuff, damned economic crisis  :(

It's the red version with black cartridge slot and it's in excellent condition externally. The disc drive is almost certainly in need of a replacement belt though as the guy I'm buying from has only ever used carts. All part of the fun though I guess.

Unless they sold it, Rising stuff has one CIB for $19 or so (not sure what shipping is).

I'm glad you pointed that one out for me  :). I've emailed to ask if it's complete as the listing just says 'boxed'.

I got this on eBay as a Buy-It-Now for $30. I know that's way above the usual price but hey, it is new and sealed. The listing says this game was found amongst liquidated stock from a Japanese toy shop that just closed down. It's been sitting in a warehouse or some such for 20+ years! It's amazing to think people are still finding things like this after all this time.

The Zelda no Densetsu is the sealed one I bought on eBay last week. The Twin Famicom, I bought from a private seller on another forum. There's a tiny bit of wear on the top left hand side of the case (looks almost like an abrasion of some sort?) but is in otherwise cracking condition. I was astonished to find that the disc drive actually works  ;D I think it was a real bargain, not least because you practically never see these machines on sale in the UK. That's one advantage to this whole financial crisis thing - lots of people are skint and selling their good stuff cheap :)

The Mario 3 came with the Twin Fami and it still the best game ever  :)

/\  Perhaps it is just how the image was captured, but your Kaettekita Mario Bros. looks less glossy and more like a computer print out than mine.  Is it just the photo, or is it different?  And I suppose this game could have been written on any disk perhaps, so the number code may be insignificant.

I just got 4 of the filthiest games I've ever seen and spent a little while cleaning them up (though unfortunately someone put tape on SF2 that I didn't want to remove for fear of ripping the label off).  Though they all work, and that is all that I as hoping for out of these.

I tried Recca for a minute and can instantly say it is amazing.

SMB4 is rather cool (I like the weird label art too).   It would be interesting to know what it is worth as a SMB2J cart is worth a fair amount on its own, and this game is SMB2J, but when you get a mushroom you turn into SMB3 mario and when you get a star, you don't become invincible--instead, for the duration of the stage, you can swim in mid-air as if it were a water level (the regular star music plays during this).  There are some other graphic changes, but I didn't play past the first few levels to know everything about it, nor did I get a fire flower to see what that looks like or does. 

The Street Fighter games are fairly different from each other, but SF2 actually tries to look like the arcade game and has the same intro.

Awesome finds! I've never heard of such a crazy Mario hack before! :o

The 'window things' are EPROMs, reprogrammable chips. You can erase them by exposing their windows to UV light, like the Sun. Most of them come with a piece of sticky tape over the window to avoid accidental erasure. Also, those are very old EPROMs.

The 'two-tone cart' was probably caused by a price tag or some other kind of label partially obscuring one section of the plastic. The rest of the cart yellowed due to being exposed to the Sun, while the covered part did not.

Hmm...that is an interesting Mario hack that I've never heard of. There's the Merio version of SMB, with swimming in any level, and I have the same Mario cart and label you've got, but mine has a Chip N Dales Mario hack on the board.

BTW -- what's the title screen look like?

Post by: Medisinyl on April 22, 2009, 07:14:51 PM
/\  Here are some shots.  I also discovered now that you have fire power as regular big mario.  And the fire flower seems to just change the suit color (though the color change didn't happen until I progressed to the next level).  Last two shots are swimming with the star power (you can break through bricks by swimming up through them).

Thanks for the information--none of my other carts have the reprogrammable chips.  That is a very cool feature I was unaware of.   And I figured there was a sticker over a portion of the Recca cart, though the odd discoloration (in comparison to the light blue) seemed odd, as it is more of a green than aged yellowing (though I suppose yellow+blue=green).  

And thanks to others for the compliments on the SMB4.   Planet Haxxor referred to SMB4 as SMB1 with diffferent rules and glitches, which is no surpise as every game I got resulted in numerous black Q-Tips and paper towels (and a fair amount of contact cleaner).  No doubt I am quite happy with what I found after a good cleaning.

It looked more like some version of Waluigi to me.  And it is quite strange that JC got a Chip'n'Dale hack from the same cart and label.


EDIT:   I've noticed some other changes as well now.  The mushrooms and poison mushrooms have a different  (somewhat better) graphic, and the ugly, bland background mushrooms have been changed into Toad's House from SMB3 (this can be seen in my last photo set).  And the fire flower doesn't do anything but give you points, as you get fire power from a mushroom and will change into the fire suit if you beat a level as big mario without getting the flower.    I also found that if you jump on an enemy while using the star swim that you will be launched out the top of the screen (similar to how the super springs bounce you in SMB2j).  Thankfully if you jump the flag, the screen does not progress endlessly and trap you--it stops after the castle so you can't push the flag off the screen.    (you can't just swim out the top of the screen, but once you are up there, you can swim to stay out of the screen as long as you like).  I think the coin boxes look nicer in this version too despite the "4" on them... SMB2j boxes don't blend with the game as well.

Post by: Medisinyl on April 23, 2009, 06:38:24 PM
I managed to get the tape off without damaging the label (thanks to using contact cleaner to kill the adhesive without harming the cart or label).

The disk is (obviously) a pirate, which is exactly what I wanted! :D  It has SMB on one side, and SMB2j on the other.  In SMB, Mario runs double the speed he does in the normal game..which is awesome...can you say "New personal best for SMB?" ;D  SMB2j was claimed to have Mario/Luigi run really slow...but I didn't notice a change.  Maybe it's just me, but oh well.  They're great!  Again, it might be just me, but I think the colors in SM USA are more vivid than that of SMB2 on the NES.  Either way, I recommend SMUSA, and this hack if you can get it.  It's a nice change of pace (:P) from the original.

Post by: JC on May 22, 2009, 07:01:41 PM
It's not a Disk Writer game. The blue casing -- retail releases -- indicates a Disk Fax game. The DW games were usually written to blank disks in yellow casing, though you could use Side B of a disk with the blue casing. The DF games have blue casing and have the little dust cover over the hole where the disk is read by the FDS. The dust cover was added to protect the sensitive high score data from corruption or loss. You could take your blue disk into certain stores and have the high score on it "faxed" into Nintendo headquarters, maybe getting a prize when the high score competition ended.

A few games I bought last week finally came in last night and I received:

Rockman 3
Solstice
Fantasy Zone 2

All for a total of about $15/shipped.  Still waiting on a bunch of disc system stuff I just ordered and on a Datach Joint ROM System [CIB].

edit: I'm envious of that boxed Rockman.  Still haven't gotten any of those complete (but may have to start collecting them as I like the artwork).

People that piss me off the most in this game: Piston Honda (The second time), Mr. Sandman, and Mike Tyson

The only ones I have any problem beating are Mr. Sandman and of course Mike Tyson.  I don't recall having as much problem with Sandman as a kid, but it took me several tries to beat him the last time I played through the game (I couldn't beat Tyson the last time, but may have been able to when I was a kid).

Once you figure out the pattern or what times you can get certain punches in, then all of the opponents are a breeze...except for Tyson--he is considerably harder than anyone else.

It plugs into the Famicom unit and plays little mini half sized carts.  There are cards that you can scan in that can give you power boosts and stuff.  No real interest in playing it but it's cool looking and adds something to my collection.  :D

I finally scored myself a Rockboard! It came in the mail yesterday and I played it all day/night long. hahaha. Below is a picture of my CIB Rockboard and a scan of a cool Capcom flyer I thought you cool dudes might appreciate. :D

RockBoard is sooo much fun, you'd be amazed! The language barrier is not bad at all. RockBoard is a pretty straight forward game of monopoly, except you're rockman characters. If you enjoy both Rockman and monopoly, then RockBoard is definitely for you. 8)

Well, my birthday is a month and a halfish away and my parents already ordered my gift from Japan Game Stock... the big EMS box with japanese characters and a return address from Osaka might have gave it away.

Now dad didn't open it so I can't say everything that's in there yet but I have a good idea of one thing that's in there. I've been waiting a couple of years to get my hands on since I heard about it... A FAMICOM DISK SYSTEM boxed with manual.

As soon as dad opens it and I can see what's inside, I'll post what else is in there because I forget what else I asked for.

It seems to be in complete in box with manual Famicom Disk System
Baloon Fight boxed
Popeye loose
Mario Bros. loose
for the disk games with manual:
Super Mario Bros. 2
Legend of Zelda 1 and 2
and then Santa Claus no Treasure box just the disk.

Now all I have to do is wait for July 27th (unless I get it a some birthday party that weekend before) until I get to play them and make sure everything works.

PC multicart with a bunch of PC stuff

Poker III (Sachen)

Here's what I got in the mail two days ago from Carl:
(http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp320/nintendodork1/SDC10306-1.jpg)
Another Pulse Line, woohoo!  I replaced both pads in the controller.  The D-pad is still a little loose, so I'm going to look for tighter controllers in the future.

 For anyone who hasn't seen the inside of a NES/Famicom controller, here's a pic I took when I was swapping pads:
(http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp320/nintendodork1/SDC10280-1.jpg)
The one on the left is a NES controller board, and the one on the right is, obviously, the Hori Turbo controller.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 09, 2009, 03:49:04 AM
Good job! I guess it proves that all controllers use the same type of rubber domes :).


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on June 09, 2009, 03:52:38 AM
Yup.  The pads are all the same, the thing I thought was weird was that the D-pad on the Hori controller is sort of curved upwards, while the NES D-pad is more balanced.  The Hori controller board is also more complicated than the NES one :P


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 09, 2009, 03:59:39 AM
The Hori controller board is also more complicated than the NES one :P

Because it's a turbo controller :P. The extra chips you see contain NOT gates which in conjunction with some discrete components form a crude ring oscillator, and those oscillations are used to 'push' the buttons repeatedly in turbo mode.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on June 09, 2009, 04:05:10 AM
I don't feel like opening it again, but I saw these little silver things on the bottom of the turbo buttons.  They looked like they hooked into the board or something, but I couldn't get them to go in it.  It didn't matter though, because the controller worked without them being in anything.  What would they be used for?

EDIT* Also, how come some games don't work with the turbo controller?  Is it because they don't look for anything in the expansion port?  SMB doesn't do anything when I turn on the A turbo, but it lets me use B turbo.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 09, 2009, 04:22:40 AM
The small silver springy pieces of metal beneath the turbo sliders make electrical contact with the board and bridge different traces depending on the slider's position (electronically they swap different resistor/capacitor values to alter the ring oscillator's frequency). It's a common problem for them to lose their springiness and make intermittent contact, or become clogged with dirt and crud.

If you don't put them in their places (or put them backwards etc), you lose the turbo functions. Plain and simple.

As for it not working on some games, it either works perfectly or it doesn't work at all (multicart menus seem to be the worst offenders with expansion port controllers).

In this certain scenario, I was playing SMB.  I turned on the B button turbo, and I started shooting mulitple fireballs, so that worked.  Then I tried pressing A without turbo, and I jumped normally, but then, when I turned on A button turbo and pressed A, nothing happened at all.  I even tried adjusting the turbo switch to various speeds.  I wonder what's causing that..


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: 133MHz on June 09, 2009, 04:29:05 AM
I bet that you placed the silver springy thing for the A button backwards or something like that. Try another game first before taking the controller apart.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on June 09, 2009, 04:41:29 AM
I just tried Adventure Island, and it didn't work when I turned the turbo on, but if I held the turbo switch all the way to the left with my finger, I could jump as if I didn't have turbo on.  But if I don't hold it back, then it doesn't do anything.  So I guess I'll turn the switch around.

EDIT*  Opened it up, and they were both facing the right way >:(  B button works just fine, and the A button is skittish when not using turbo, and when I try using turbo, it does nothing >:(

Okay.  So I stumbled in my random collection of 2 games.  Super Mario Bros 2 and another that looks like Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa.  The cartridges look NOTHING like originals and I am thinking they are in English.  The SMB2 cart says LF36 in the top left corner, CASSETTE under that and FAMILYCOMPUTER above the picture on the label.  However, the back is in full Japanese.  The Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa copy says TV GAME CARTRIDGE to the right of the game label and there is Japanese on the rest of the front, and on the back it says: CASSETTE; REMARKS: *Since this is a sophisticated apparatus, should avoid to operate or to store under extreme temperature, also avoid violent bumps is necessary; moreover, never disassemble it. *The reasons causing defauts are: Touching the end field by hands, or cleaning by wet materials.  And to the left of that it says QUALITY GUARANTY and to the left of that it says "The unique manufacturer adopting high class IC and processed by not oxidized gold plate on the apparatus, to protect protect your IPU" (I know i put protect twice, it has it on there twice.

Please get back to me about these cause I cannot find ANYTHING about them ANYWHERE!

Thank you very much!

If you remember a couple threads back, my birthday present has arrived. I am not going touch anything FDS related until my birthday. That being said, he already brose off the bubble rap around the games (but not the system). I have opened and showed my friends the Legend of Zelda disk and manual.... I HAVE STICKERS!

I feel bad looking back but I "tested" the famicom carts: Popeye, Mario Bros., and Baloon Fight. All of them work, I just wanted to make sure because popeye and mario bros were sent loose. Baloon fight came in box even with the plastic case around it with manual.

I am nervous about my disk games. They could very well be completely different games. For all I know, the Zelda disk could have wrecking crew. I'm sure it'll be fine, and I can't wait till I get to set up that beast.

Yeah man I wasn't able to test all of them because in some stands they had a famiclone to test it in but in others they didn't and in some ways that was good because I got a better deal on them and tested them in another stand later anyways hahaha. I will try and pick up a famiclone either tomorrow or on Monday so check the games out. I'm bored out of my mind when I don't go out. lol....anyways, I'll keep you guys posted!

Ones I'm curious about:
Grand Dad Mario, Super Brother Mario 13, the multi with the Battletoads label on the front, and Street Fighter III because of the label...

Pretty much the Mario stuff.  I love Mario hacks :P

FamicomFreak just told me that Super Brothers Mario 13 is a character hack of Whomp 'Em.  I just tried the game, and it's pretty fun!

I also just bought this from ericj:

I've got the Sachens all boxed up at the moment, FamicomFreak. I'll pull them out someday. I finally checked, and yes, I have all of the Sachen multis, which is pretty exciting.

Found this recently:

Never heard of Popeye 2. How's the gameplay?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on July 06, 2009, 10:09:22 PM
It's kinda like Aladdin II, Boogerman, DK4, Jungle Book 2 -- all similar engines. I like them all. Popeye 2 is tough, at least in my first few plays.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on July 07, 2009, 01:12:52 AM
Actually, now that I remember your article, I think it's the same game, only with rearranged levels and Popeye, but I'd need to play it more to find out. The first level in Popeye is like the third screenshot: http://www.famicomworld.com/Workshop/Aladdin_Hack.htm

Post by: manuel on July 07, 2009, 01:14:02 AM
That's one nice pirate. Looks almost like an official game.

If they're neatly boxed like this one I could be interested in pirates after all. :)


edit:
Got a nice boxed Famicom.

Eternal Story artwork is very nice!

(I hate to double post so I won't)

Found a mario 1 graphic hack, mario 2J graphic hack, galaxian and battle city multicart, all for 12 dollars shipped, nice!

Not really sure why they came up with the name Lambo, LAMBO?!?!   maybe they meant Rambo and cocked it up Engrish style.
Romeo aint too bad, but Lambo? That makes me proud to own this cart :D

Oddly, the SMB1 game has the graphic swap that's sometimes seen on fake SMB2J carts.  Looking at the titles, it almost looks as if the Romeo and Lambo are on SMB1 but hey, I didn't decide this nonsense!

Just bought the first Megami Tensei game! :D This will be good for practicing japanese, as there doesn't seem to be kanji in the dialogue. That and this series just looks awesome and I've been wanting to play it for a long time. I'm also bidding on the second game.  ;D

Good Question, I haven't the slightest idea about the 82in1; I will be surprised when it arrives.

4in1 has Double Dragon 2 prototype, Double Dragon 3, Double Dragon 4 and SD Fighter (which I have no idea what SD Fighter is, the picture is of Law from Tekken)

The other 4in1 has Shudu (Havent any idea what it is), Road Fighter, Tetris and Tank

I got it new/wrapped though, which is nice.

The cartridge is really small so it wobbles around in my system making it hard to play without corrupting the game. :(

I wandered into one of the local shops today and they had a newly arrived pile of Famicom carts that they were selling cheap and I got to be one of the first people to sift through them.  This just totally made my day.  I picked up three awesome classic games that I've been searching for months for:

Empire Strikes Back
Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Shima
Donkey Kong

Okay, the good news - I found several NES games at a Salvation Army store, $1.00 ea. including:

-3D WorldRunner
-10-Yard Fight
-Gotcha!
-Soccer
-Tennis
-Top Gun
-ExciteBike
-Iron Tank
-Pro Wrestling
-Rad Racer
-R.C. Pro Am
-Tiger Heli
-Track & Field II

Even better! There happened to be a half-off sale that day, so I bought them all for $0.50 each.  And most of these are doubles, except for Iron Tank, so I'll be selling or trading them.

Now the bad news - I lost a pair of $200 prescription Spy sunglasses at the same thrift store. :(

finds-wise, I got a load of multis for cheap last week.

This is just an eBay purchase but I thought it was pretty cool as I don't even have the actual game yet.

I am so excited to receive my 3 cartridges in the mail, KD-6052 82IN1, YH4122 4IN1 "Includes prototype sample of Double Dragon 2: The Revenge" and Super Gmae 4IN1.

Both I and Kira have sent each others items out;
we should both be receiving each others quite soon.

You mean a proto or a pirate of the proto? It amazes me that the proto ROM ended up on a pirate btw. The only other occasion of that happening I can think of is Time Diver.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

And almost never happens.

JC said "That's really awesome. I've never heard of a proto ROM ending up on pirate carts. I think it's likely that the piraters got ahold of a sample cart by being sneaky and pretending to be gamer magazine reporters. That's awesome.  --JC"

I agree with his assumption.

Post by: NintendoKing on September 24, 2009, 03:21:47 PM
My games came in today...

Okay.
I was suprised to find out that the 4 in 1 with the prototype also has the game Mighty Final Fight

The 82in1 cart only has 5 games repeated over and over, but it does have Tengen Tetris so thats always cool. It has 37 copies of Mario, 10 of zippy race, 4 of road fighter, 8 tetris and 17 jewelry and 6 Galaga.

and the 3in1 that was provided wasnt the game I requested, I requested the 4in1; also the 3in1 doesnt even work correctly... it is so glitch fragmented you can barely see whats on the screen and 2 of the 3 games wont even show anything the only one that shows up says James Bond. But its not playable.


Well, live and learn. Oh, well. Atleast I got the cool Tengen Tetris, Galaga, Mighty Final Fight and the sample version of Double Dragon 2.

Double Dragon 4 is apparently a pirate but I am wondering what its pirated from.
Double Dragon 3 is real.
Double Dragon 2 is the prototype; I even compared it to the famicom page about it; and my copy is in fact the same exact game! Yay!
And the 4th game on the cart is Mighty Final Fight.


I am glad I got it, but am sorry you weren't able to get it.

1) Kaiser
2) Normal (like the NES cartridge you got from Nesreproduction)
3) random one
4) LF36 (this one isn't good)

I'd put Lee Yin at number one. That's the big cart original SMB2j port.

SMB2j port are common but are rare in multicarts (I only saw it in Mario Party cart from TV.GAME Cartridge).

Actually, the best ports with a lot of special functions will go around 25-35$ on Ebay

Kaiser Pirate is not so common ! I think, only 3 people have it on the forum
LF36 from Whirlwind Manu is very common (the one without the title screen).
The other don't have any special name and are random. Many don't have A-D worlds or need to be completed 8 times without shutdown the NES to get them...

The only problem with the Kaiser one, it doesn't have red plants (only in pipes that go down).
If we should create some kinds of top4 of the best SMB2j port it will like as:
1) Kaiser
2) Normal (like the NES cartridge you got from Nesreproduction)
3) random one
4) LF36 (this one isn't good)

So they are not so common then..
the top sticker on SMB2j FC, saying something about 1988..do you guys think thats the year it was made?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on October 13, 2009, 03:01:12 PM
Doesn't the Kaiser pirate have some sprite hacks? Lee Yin is the only one I've played that seems to almost perfectly duplicate the disk.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on October 13, 2009, 04:34:01 PM
I don't think there's a date, but based on its size, I've asumed it's the first. There's a set evolution of pirates that makes them easy to figure out which were manufactured early and which later on. Regardless, Lee Yin's doesn't have a hacked title screen.

Post by: Medisinyl on October 14, 2009, 11:25:51 PM
The only different thing is the title screen. It seems that the ? blocs are a bit different but I know why. Because they stored everything in the PRG instead putting graphics in CHR (it probably change something because NES need to read graphics from a CHR file, not PRG !
I know some other cart that seem to have normal title screen and graphics like Lee Yin.
On some Kaiser SMB2j Cartridge, there's 1988 on the label, is there any date on Lee Yin cart ?

All I recall being different was the title screen as well (and level select of course).  I still own my Kaiser pirate, but sold my FDS version (it's been a while since I've played either, and the blocks may very well be different--if someone really wants to know, I could check it out and post a screen-shot if there is such a difference).    

Though my favorite version of SMB2J that I have is an odd sprite hack (SMB3 Mario) version with some different graphics and bizarre changes such as the star making you swim in mid air for the rest of the level (I wrote about a bunch of the differences when I first got it).  I believe someone mentioned having a cart with the same label, but it had a different game.

Perhaps not a Famicom find per se, but I'll be using this and an NES four score to build a connector for my NES controllers so they work on a Famicom.

Great purchase--the sound quality is miles ahead of the NES version when played on the proper hardware (I don't know what people are using for the Youtube sound clips of the game, but they don't do any justice to the cart being played on an actual Famicom).

Some of the porno games can be quite humorous.  The Sexy Derby I got from JC a ways back has Super Pig as a selectable character to strip for you (girl stripping out of the pig costume), and some of the mid-way images are hilarious.

$60 this beast cost me!  :o

I don't regret paying an arm and leg though, because I love mega man and to have all 6 in one cartridge is great. If I was anal about it and got them all separate on official cartridges, it would cost tons more.

Wow! If I could get $60 for mine (which is exactly like the one you bought), I'd sell it.

That seller used to not list things often if it's the same one I'm thinking of, but now they have a bunch of items listed.  Very cool Rockman cart you got, though I'm plenty happy with all of my separate NES carts.

I expect you'll be quite happy with All Night Nippon. 

Otherwise, I had a hand in your ability to get a copy of Sexy Derby =P  Hope you like that one as well (though I believe you mentioned playing it on an emulator already so you've probably already seen all of it in some form).   I may have to look into the other games you're getting...  The Nazo no game sounded interesting with what I just pulled up.  Dunno the Adventures one either.   


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on November 11, 2009, 02:40:59 AM
I have played through Sexy Derby.  The pig was funny.

As for The Adventures of Chatran, it's a game about Milo from Milo & Otis; a movie about the adventures of a dog and a cat who are friends.  Not sure if it's big in Japan or not.

Nazo no Murasamejou is a great game.  It's in top-down form like Zelda 1, but the game is much faster-paced, and it's a lot more difficult.  Very fun though.  I'd recommend it to anyone with a disk system and anyone who likes a fun challenge.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Medisinyl on November 11, 2009, 01:17:46 PM
/\  Ah, I have in fact seen the Chatran game then.  Didn't recognize the name.  The other one still sounds interesting though. 

Only new Famicom game I've got coming in is the Mario Castlevania I mentioned elsewhere (and my Sexy Derby back from ericj).

I picked up a CiB copies of Gun-Dec and Hostages (AKA Rescue: The Embassy Mission) on my holiday in Japan ^_^

I also picked up a few loose carts at a flea market including Final Mission, Ninja Gaiden (only 400!) and some FDS games.

There was so much cool stuff I could have bought in Akihabara if not for the blatant tourist tax pricing going on. It's crazy but it's actually cheaper to get most Famicom stuff from Western sellers on eBay!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: sumguy on December 04, 2009, 03:57:21 AM
Yeah! A complete in box Famicom system at a Taiwan flea market for $6!  Manual is in Chinese and it has the original receipt.  Don't know if it works yet.  (don't have a TV) :(  Also, 2 famiclones, one looks like a PS2 slim and one like a PS1.  Also one of those N64 controller famiclones.  2 Japanese Sega Saturns, one grey, one white and an arcade style joy-stick controller!  Also a Mega Drive.  And a bunch of pirate Famicom games.  Best day ever!  Now to fit it all in my suitcase...:P


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on December 04, 2009, 11:35:20 AM
You can tell if it's the Hong Kong Famicom simply by the label, but it smells like a Famiclone to me since the manual is in Chinese.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Nightstar699 on December 04, 2009, 12:12:29 PM
Awesome stuff Sumguy!!! My 2 latest famicom games I got are Sanrio Carnival, and Ducktales! They are both so fun! And yesterday at a store I found 6 intellivision games for 1 dollar.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: L___E___T on December 04, 2009, 12:22:20 PM
Picked up another 50 random games, though there's too many to list there were some great ones in there like final fantasies, dragon quests and of course a multitude of baseball games.  Japanese seem to love their baseball games!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Nightstar699 on December 04, 2009, 12:34:53 PM
Awesome! Ive never bought in a huge lot like that.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: sumguy on December 06, 2009, 10:16:40 AM
I don't think its a famiclone.  Its too heavy, more solid, AC adapter is heavy ect..  Came with an extra controller too...  Box is Japanese, so I don't think its the HK one.  I'll get a pic up later.  Went back today to get the Mega Drive (didn't get it at first because I went home to weigh my suitcase to see if it was overweight) but it was gone :(

I'm keeping the grey Saturn, but I still haven't bought the white Japanese Saturn yet.  The seller was rude to me so it turned me off to getting it on the spot.  What's it worth?  On ebay they seem to fluxuate and I can't tell if its because of the games they are selling with them.  

@nightstar--thats great, I love intellivision.  Still need to get the right hookups to get mine up and going.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Nightstar699 on December 06, 2009, 08:27:08 PM
Cool! The seller said earlier they had an intellivision system, but it was bought. So ill buy one online! Congrats on your find as well, it would be very cool to find any famicom for so cheap!


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: sumguy on December 10, 2009, 03:56:14 AM
Sorry the pictures suck.  If you need better pics to see if its a famicom or famiclone, let me know.  Manual is definitely in Chinese, though.

Familcone.  The controllers are a dead giveaway.  Nonetheless, it looks very professional.  Another giveaway is that on the box, the second controller doesn't have a microphone, so even if the controllers were changed, the box still shows that they were not original controllers.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: sumguy on December 10, 2009, 04:08:15 AM
aww...oh well.  Not a bad clone to have.  But I still need to get my hands on a real one at some point.

The BIC are official Camerica/Codemasters games. Dance Dance is pretty much just pushing a direction on the D-pad when the scrolling arrows reach a certain spot on the screen. Fun for a couple of minutes. Some of the songs are cool to hear in 8-bit.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

Yeah, sorry bout that.   :-X  Its kinda the problem with having friends who say they'll get you stuff...they never seem to get around to it until its too late and you can't yell at them cause they're your friend.  Then again, I should learn to keep my mouth shut unless I can do the transactions directly.  

Cool!  I visited a local Famicom collector's house the other day.  Bought Time Diver Avenger CIB, Dragon Spirit, Mother...plus some others that looked fun but can't read the Japanese titles.  One looks like a sort of Dragon Quest style RPG by Namcot where three women follow this pimp-looking guy around...odd

I don't think I've ever seen a mat, but who knows. There's probably one. I've never tried it on the Tap-Tap mat, but I'd be willing to bet it wouldn't work.

Yes, the design is nearly 100% identical aside from coloring.  

EDIT:  Looking back now at the character screen, it looks as if that character has a "K" on his chest.  It may very well intentionally be Konami Man.

Man, I don't have time to post at all these days.
Just a little update from me here in the finds section.

I had some sad news coming the last days (parents probably going to split up... I'm very sensitive about stuff like that), but instead of going on a drinking tour like a friend suggested, I drove to some game stores and bought some special packages.

Now I have here 350 Famicom games and 140 Super Famicom games. Some duplicates in there, but for that price I can't complain.
I won't tell the (very low) price or some of you might lose their faith in mankind.  :D :P


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on December 27, 2009, 09:50:09 PM
Sorry to hear about your parents; but happy to hear about the games. :) 350! I can only imagine all the good ones ya got. I've never gotten a lot that big -- pretty big, just not that big.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Nightstar699 on December 27, 2009, 09:50:28 PM

350! I can only imagine all the good ones ya got. I've never gotten a lot that big -- pretty big, just not that big.

I got one pack of 100 and 5 packs of 50 games each. If I bought all they had I could have gotten over 1000 I guess, but first I'd get too many duplicates and 2nd I'm sure there are more gamers around who'd like to get a nice deal. :)
Yeah, there are some nice titles indeed. See pic. (I now see I put Door Door twice... and both label variants of Devil World)

If you want (jut pm me if interested) I can always have an eye open for Gimmick and maybe make you an offer when I find one.

350! I can only imagine all the good ones ya got. I've never gotten a lot that big -- pretty big, just not that big.

I got one pack of 100 and 5 packs of 50 games each. If I bought all they had I could have gotten over 1000 I guess, but first I'd get too many duplicates and 2nd I'm sure there are more gamers around who'd like to get a nice deal. :)
Yeah, there are some nice titles indeed. See pic. (I now see I put Door Door twice... and both label variants of Devil World)

My latest Famicom finds:

  • Golgo 13
  • Kung Fu
  • Mach Rider (pirate?)
  • Super Chinese

I'm pretty sure that Mach Rider is a pirate, not only because of the awful printing, but also because it's got the "Don't Feed To Crocs" warning label on the back.

Post by: JC on January 31, 2010, 08:49:47 PM
Have you found a lot of cart-exclusive games converted to disk? I've never paid much attention.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: ericj on January 31, 2010, 09:01:35 PM
I've only found a few that work, and they typically have 2 or 3 disks.

Unfortunately, most of the cart converted games I've found always have disk Side D, E, or F that won't load and produce a disk error code, so I can never verify that the games are what the cover inserts say they are. I have a whole box of games (probably 13+ titles with 2-4 disks each) that may be exclusives, but won't fully load to verify. :-\ It's always only one damn side of a disk, usually D or E, that gives an error.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: JC on January 31, 2010, 10:03:56 PM
Do you suppose they take a particular device to work -- a certain Game Doctor or something?

That may be possible. I haven't found anyone who knows the differences between the various versions of Game Doctors and the Game Converter.  Anyone know?

You have to be fast to get what you want on here, usually you can put things on hold also. Its first come first serve on Famicomworld. That being said, I have lost out on quite a few games allot on here also.

Note for ericj: if you press reset after seeing: ©1997 Hummer Team, you should get a 2 in 1 screen with DKC4 and JB2.

Thanks for the info. I'll try that today and see what happens. What's it mean if it doesn't happen when I press reset?

Also, I have that one MS-DOS4 is talking about both on a single & a multi. The color is darker and the graphics are somewhat scrambly on both versions of mine, too, regardless if it's played on a clone or official hardware.

Maybe it's not anything unusual but I've managed to find a nice pirate "Tetris2+BomBliss" surprisingly with a PCB capable to add a battery backup, so I did it and... it worked! As a huge Tetris fan now I have it fully functional ;-)

Cool multis, MS-DOS4!  I've been thinking about getting that Somari/EWJ3 multi from Vash.  Both are games I don't have, and EWJ3 is apparently awesome.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: MS-DOS4 on March 31, 2010, 01:07:59 AM
EWJ3 is kinda ok. It's really difficult to get past the yellow dog thing that goes after you at high speeds. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?

edit:

Well, I looked and somebody made game genie codes for this particular pirate, allowing me to cheat my way though the levels. All I can say is that this game is way above pirate standards, this looks totally professional!

My curiousity got the best of me, I had to see the differences for myself.
If you know what I mean?

But yea, I know I will likely really enjoy Somari; I have played it emulated and got decently far once I memorized all the random traps. Once you figure out the traps they made, like the ones to stop you from running... or jumping at a certain time.

The game gets great, and I bet its even more fun on the actual system, as emulation never does a game justice.

Unfortunately not, it's still waiting for me. I just today FINALLY made one sale on eBay, first sale in probably over a month. With that cash I'm probably going to be paying for some stuff from someone else first. So the wait's going to take a bit longer I'm afraid  :-[

If anyone is curious what Hercules and The Grinch for SNES are though, that's what's in the package I'm going to pay shipping for. So it's not Rockman X2, but I'm using the money for other obscurities :P I'm considering possibly doing a blog of unique things I find, but probably will hold off until i actually see if any of this really IS anything special, or just title screen hacks or something very lame.

Today, I finally got the 5 games in from Vash. Unfortunately, 3in1 with Lion King, Flinstones and Mortal Kombat 3 doesnt function at all.

But Somari plays wonderfully!


I had to test them on my friend, Gyromiters Famicom (the one I gave him for his birthday) as I currently have no way to play Famicom until my AV Famicom arrives.

My Honeybee Converter is glitchy and like makes famicom games almost unplayable on my NES-101 Toploader. My question was answered, "YES, Converters do began failing badly after constant use.", even good quality ones."

And Vash, I believe you; sometimes games only function on clones.

MS-DOS4, omg it is amazing.
The sound quality is better, the picture is extremely better and it can use NES controllers, but at the same time also use the wonderful Famicom stuffs.

I never imagined what I was missing out on, the original Famicom may look cooler but it just doesnt cut it in the long run as compared to the AV Famicom.  Really the same goes for the NES versus the ultimate NES-101 Toploader, newwer models just work better because of upgrades.

Its crazy amazing, I mean the original was really nice and all but honestly it had crummy signal all the time and the super short attached controllers annoyed me so I got an expansion port one that I am now using on the AV Famicom.

Those are a nice invention with that and an AV mod, you get the same thing as a AV Famicom. I am not technical at all and I figured that just buying the AV version would be more simple for me.

But I would also like to own one of those adapters one day also, so I use a zapper on my console.

Yep..pretty much all you do is use the two buttons--Run & Jump--for the games. 

I'll have to play them more and see what I really think, but my first impression after playing them each for a few minutes is that they are kind of hard. It was a surprise for games you play with only 2 buttons!  :D

Have you gotten this cart yet? I'm really curious to see what it is.

I got this in the mail today. As expected it was just Rockman 2  :'( What's more it has a copyright from NTDEC at startup. Talk about misleading people :/

Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 14, 2010, 10:49:59 PM
I know I see Goemon 2, Famicom Jump, Adventure Island, Saiyuuki World. And possibly Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: FamicomFreak on May 15, 2010, 02:45:13 AM
Not sure which carts you mean? top right bottom right? etc etc please be more specific master.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Nightstar699 on May 15, 2010, 02:47:08 AM
Well those 3 bandai games, (the oddly shaped ones), the top 2 are Famicom Jump and Goemon 2. And on the other 6, the bottom left is Adventure Island. The one next to it I think is Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru. That konami game, I know the name of it but I just cant remember it...

Edit: Getsuufu Maden is the konami game.

My latest Famicom related flea market finding. I haven't been to flea markets in ages, so I went to one with a friend yesterday and I managed to score this one for a dollar:

(http://133fsb.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/mkiispecial.jpg)

JY-030 Mortal Kombat III Special ! ;D
Cart is in overall good condition, the label is a bit torn off at the edges, game works perfectly and it's got blood effects unlike my other MK pirate. :D

Found myself a square button Famicom in the middle of a junk pile the other day.  Pictures here:

http://famicomblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/square-button-famicom-my-new.html

Only problem is that it is missing one of its square buttons (argh!).  And it doesn't work.  But I just had to have it.

Anybody have a spare square button?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: nintendodork on May 17, 2010, 02:12:51 AM
It's so yellow...it looks like a rock.  That looks more like something someone made by hand than an actual Famicom, and it's sweet!  I don't blame you for wanting it.  You should turn it into something cool.  I have no idea what though.

Am I the only one that likes how old, junky gaming stuff looks? I never clean that stuff if I can help it, it's part of the history. I love how yellowed and worn that thing is, it's amazing. You shoulda kept the top on it (although I guess your other Famicom wouldn't be working if you had).

Post by: FamicomFreak on May 17, 2010, 03:13:54 AM
No you are not, I love to buy those beat up famicom pirates and they are all dirty and old looking but they work! I even have one that has tape around it, wonder what happened...lol


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)

Tape? Awesome! Is it missing screws or something?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: FamicomFreak on May 17, 2010, 03:20:32 AM
Yeah well it's a pirate cart so that cart was probably broken trying to open it and they came up with the clever idea to use tape har har har

I'm open to suggestions!  Right now its just sitting in a closet.  I'm hoping to get it to work someday so I can actually use it, though I've gotta find another button somewhere!

FamicomFreak and Tankexmortis:

I'm hearing you about how cool stuff looks "used".  I was kind of torn about switching the cases, though the cool thing is that I can always switch them back, which I'm kind of thinking of doing.  Because now when I look at my square-button Famicom I know that it has a dark secret - that part of it is actually a round-button Famicom.

Usually when I get some old Famicom stuff the only thing  I'll remove is the dust and grime.  If a cartridge has a kid's name written on it with marker or something I always take care to leave that on - part of its history!

Harry's Legend. It's a bit difficult, but fun!

I have that monstrosity of a shoot em' up on another cartridge. God that game has awful music.

Congrats on harry's legend, thats a cool game.

It's defiantly a great piece for anybody's collection.
Just as a reference to anybody who hasn't played the shooter version, here's a sample of that awful music I was talking about.

Post by: Nightstar699 on May 19, 2010, 03:30:37 AM
Yup, that game is freaking hard. It's short, but tough to beat. When I finally beat it, the ending was just as uneventful and poorly made as I expected. ;D


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: FamicomFreak on May 19, 2010, 05:08:46 AM
When you get the hang of it, Harry's Legend is a really easy game. It's all about patterns...

Just purchased Hoshi no Kirby on ebay. Been dying to have this game in my collection since I ever started it.

On another note, this will almost complete my rainbow of famicarts, as I'm missing pink, purple, and white. I think I'll get Dr. Mario for white, and purple I have no idea.

Not really a true find, I suppose, but I just got Don Doko Don, Super Mario Bros. 3, Ninja Ryukenden, and Image Fight game doctor disks to work. I am really excited to finally get SMB3 & Don Doko Don working. Both are 3  2-sided disks, so it's a lot to dump.  That's up next. :)

Nice finds too.
it's funny because we got Power Rangers 3 the same day (if you got those game today).
The return of Jafar cartridge you have is a stolen board. JY published the game then a company called TP buyed most of JY stock and sold the cartridge under TP id. (JY-078//TP-078) at an highter price (source: korean guy).

I got new pieate stuff last week.

and got new nes stuff today all game with box manual.

I like it because it plays the games perfectly, plus it has an eject button like a real famicom. Also the system is like a Famicom, the controllers are like Super Famicom. :D

I also got some games for it.

A USB Famicom controller from usb.brando.com (http://usb.brando.com/buffalo-usb-nintendo-pc-game-pad_p01475c048d015.html) just arrived to my door and I must say It's perfect! Really feels like original and the buttons have "the right -push- sound" :D Also the Turbo function is very well implemented (can be set for any button) and according to the manual booklet, a "second" (player two) controller model with microphone is out there somewhere ...
Recommended for all famicom fans !

Medisinyl, you'll love FC Genjin.  It's my favorite Famicom game.

jpx72, you should check out RetroUSB.com.  They have some products that will let you use any standard NES controller (as well as controllers for other systems) on your PC for emulators.  They've also got some other cool NES-related stuff.

I agree with dork and bran unless there are any differences I don't see why you need so many copies of it....


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: ericj on June 12, 2010, 07:57:45 PM
I have a copy of it and never even play it. I find it frustrating since Mario moves so weirdly--the controls feel a lot like MC Kids to me, but worse. Besides it being some shitty port of SMW, I really don't understand all the excitement about this game and why people brag about multiple copies. I'd rather spend my time playing something else.

But, yeah, why the multiple copies? I assume you get them pretty cheaply, but still, what a waste of money. You could have at least purchased a full version for what you probably spent on all those demo versions.

EDIT:
I don't understand why you hate this game.... but come on...

I never said I hated it. I just think it's not worthy of all the fanfare. Got it? Or, in your words, "come on"...

4-1 Multicart from MasterDisk. It includes the Donkey Kong Country 4 pirate, Choujin Sentai Jetman, "Jungle Book 2" (DKC4 with hacked graphics), and Tiger-Heli. All very fun games I must say.

(http://img829.imageshack.us/img829/1812/dsc00982.jpg)

From MWK I have some keyboard software. Can't use it since I don't have a keyboard famiclone, but the menu shows all sorts of crap like G Basic, F Basic, english, math, Contra, and what looks like a word program. I haven't seen it dumped.

Finally from Trenton_Net, we have The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Has nice 8bit LOZ music on the title screen, unlike Triforce of the Gods. Impossible to play.
(http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/7628/dsc00985p.jpg)


Nice!  I want DKC4 so bad. :(  That Zelda game looks interesting too.  

Contact Vash. He offered me a copy of the game pictured here:

Got Gimmick. This game kicks your butt and takes names.

(http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/8268/dsc00988jq.jpg)

Sounds like crap without the extra audio chip, but the build quality of the cartridge is excellent. I've never seen a pirate feel so close to the real thing. It's very heavy and the plastic is thick / solid.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Martin on July 25, 2010, 10:15:27 AM
MS-DOS4 - Quality this case is excellent, but label in my opinion is regenarated/home-made. Sunsoft logo on label in pirate cart?...

In Poland we have seller who had and sold us many pieces of these carts with the same solid box, look to my cart:

I can't believe that no one found any games during that long time...

Anyway, here are my news awesome finds:
(http://s2.noelshack.com/uploads/images/12081448234350_100_2951.jpg)

Somari (boxed) Note: this is a different box ! It is the exact same size as the cartridge so it fits without the need of a plastic holder (unlike Ryo copy). The box art is exactly the same.

Also that 15in1 which is VERY interesting.
Here's a quick video showing the most interesting games:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pY4An2OtuFs

That's interesting, I didn't notice how Ryo's copy has a bigger box. Maybe they just made variations or something. I double checked the UPC code too, looks the same on both copies.

Which came first will be impossible to know I guess :)

Three Eyes Kid (Mitsume Ga tooru)
Power Blade 2

Kung-Fu

I'm really happy it has PB2 on it, now I don't have to worry about having to spend 100+ dollars to get that game.

Post by: MS-DOS4 on September 19, 2010, 06:48:56 PM
It depends where you live. Places like Hong Kong China and Taiwan will be good places to find pirates being sold at street vendors. I live in the US and so finding pirates in the wild is extremely difficult, although I've seen a few. If you live in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, whatever, I'd suggest you do what I do and stick to this forum and ebay. Boring multicarts are all over ebay but they're overpriced. Here you will find vendors selling interesting multicarts and cool single game pirates at good prices.

I live in the US too.  I've actually found a few pirates at the flea market I frequent.  I found a Power Joy-008, and three gameboy multicarts.  I just bought one today actually.  For some reason when I bought that I had this urge to buy a huge lot of famicom pirates.

I'm probably going to make a WTB thread soon.

I'm using a NTSC tv. I'll need to dump another $150-300 on a GOOD pal to ntsc converter (all I get is a scrolling black and white picture, making the entire unit useless)

Anyway, from what I can tell it works fine. It accepts all my famicom cartridges, and while the picture is messed up for obvious reasons, the sound is fine and so are the controls.

Even with a converter from what I have heard you will still get black and white.

Post by: MS-DOS4 on October 17, 2010, 12:37:56 AM
I think the cheap $30~ units turn the picture to full color, but won't stop the screen from scrolling. The expensive ones will make the picture color AND stop the scrolling. If you have an old TV with a VHOLD knob on the back, you can opt for the cheap converters, but on modern TVs you need to pay a pretty penny.

I also hear very modern TVs can handle both signals, but my LCD and tube appears to not.

A cheap PAL to NTSC converter will get you color, but the scrolling won't be fixed with a cheap one unless your TV can adjust vertical hold. If you have an old enough TV, you can get away using a cheap converter. I've seen cheap old CRT TVs with the necessary v-hold adjustment for free or $10-20. Just haven't gotten one yet to try my keyboard famiclone out on.

EDIT: MS-DOS4 beat me to it. :D

Post by: MS-DOS4 on October 17, 2010, 12:43:42 AM
Yeah, I think I'm going to try to get ahold of an old TV and a cheap converter. It'll be more of a hassle, but will probably save me lots of cash.

I don't understand why there is so much trouble to run PAL consoles in NTSC areas...  Why it is so, that I can run NTSC Famicom with AV mod on any old/new PAL TV in full colour and super sound? I always thought that composite output isn't specific to NTSC/PAL. But now I see it is.

Probably the first Famicom pirate I've found that doesn't have substantial damage to the gold rim around the sides. Not to mention it's Famicom =p Of all the systems i collect I barely find anything for it, hope my currect luck keeps up!

Pretty much on the money for a reproduction cart:

While NES Repros makers are pretty easy to find, rarely will I stumble across a FC or SFC repro. Sure do wish I could commission more but the seller forgot where he got this repro and his Earthbound Zero repro (which went into the high 80's if memory serves).


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: ericj on November 15, 2010, 02:19:10 PM
It's probably the original cart with a flashed eeprom containing the English version swapped out for the original.

Actually if thats true it would be a easy way to profit, flashing games and replacement the game with a translated version. Nice!

It's so prolific in the SNES and NES world. I would really like to see someone do this with Famicom games.

I've asked a couple of the SNES/NES repro makers but they usually don't have the hardware to test FC repros.

for 16.01 i got 3 good famicom games AND metal slader glory!

the guy obviously didn't do any research on the game or even bother to find out what the name is, as its listed under generic "RPG"

I originally jumped on this lot for the kunio game specifically. The next day, coincidentally, i watched this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1PU1svhBwc and had an "OHMYGOD!" moment. imma lucky one.

Together with my mouse famiclone:
(http://jpx72.detailne.sk/upload/mwk3.jpg)

it's working marvelous!!!
I never thought that those famiclone mouses are so good-working! Even a double-click is implemented (it must be not-too-long and also not-too-short to work)! I finished my first round of Solitaire on a Famiclone using a MOUSE (http://jpx72.detailne.sk/stuff_files/fc/unique_mouse.jpg) and been awarded a horrible winning song! YaaaaY !

How fast does your mouse scroll across the screen? In some cartridges mine is ultra slow, but in others it's way too fast.

Also, that's a nice looking keyboard. I love the burgundy.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: jpx72 on December 08, 2010, 04:27:33 AM
I love the burgundy.
LOL ;D that's the colour's name! Yes, I had to buy it, reminds me of original famicom colour.

And the movement is okay, that means it's not too quick and not too slow, I would say it's perfectly timed for the size of the screen. But don't forget I'm in PAL region, maybe your mouse can't adapt the speed to NTSC.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: NintendoKing on December 08, 2010, 01:00:26 PM
Jpx72, that's wonderful! But how much did said keyboard famiclone cost?


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: ericj on December 08, 2010, 01:10:45 PM
Jpx72, I received the exact same keyboard from MWK.  But, I haven't been able to use mine yet since it's PAL.  :-\ 

Gremlin, the cost of the console wasn't too bad, maybe like $15, but shipping to the US was absolutely ridiculous.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: jpx72 on December 08, 2010, 01:34:05 PM
Thanks Gremlin, I like this keyboard very much too. And yes, it was about 15$, I think maybe 12€ or so.
& ericj - that's unfortunate that you cannot use PAL consoles, hope you get it to work with some converter one day.
Just for laughs, check out the "manual (http://jpx72.detailne.sk/stuff_files/fc/unique_inst2.jpg)" !
(Shipping of package this big can be up to 25€ from here to USA... that's really too much)

PS this is my first and only cartridge with "mouse" software, the included cartridge I bought with that keyboard famiclone didn't got any mouse software.

Vash really is the guy to go to for pirates.
I just bought "3 in 1: Turtles 2, Super C and Double Dragon II" and "4 in 1: Super spy hunter, Ninja Ryukenden 3, Captain America and Harry's Legend"
It must rock to live in Poland because tons of awesome pirated cartridges are obviously everywhere.

I went to a used records store yesterday to trade in some old PC games, CDs and DVDs and got these three pirates instead:

(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc508/kristinn_olafur/PICT9089.jpg?t=1295789334)

The top one is Fist of the North Star, bottom left is Battlecity, bottom right is Seicross.

But when I got home to test them only Fist of the North star seemed to work, even after cleaning the other two  :upsetroll:

So going back tomorrow to exchange the broken ones for NES games I guess, too bad cause I've been wanting to play Battlecity for some time.

Post by: tappybot on January 23, 2011, 11:53:04 AM
So where exactly is it that you guys are finding these pirates?

Back in the US, I don't think I've ever seen these, and here in Japan, all I've seen was one 'hundred in one' cart locked in a display case.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: Kiddo on January 23, 2011, 04:44:17 PM
Actually these are the first famicom carts I find in a store here in Iceland although I have found one guy online willing to sell me some carts but at unreasonable prices.

As for not finding much of the pirate carts in the US and Japan, I'd take a guess that it is because it was already pretty easy to get a hold of offical carts, with Nintendo having a firm foothold in Japan and an official branch in the US. As for over here in the middle of the atlantic, the old NES system had distibutors, but all we got famicom wise here were pirates, so that is the only thing you can find here. But with the NES being as big as it was over here, the famiclone owners were very few so finding pirates is a bit hard. 

Post Merge: January 25, 2011, 10:37:04 PM
Went and returned the broken pirates and got this curious cart instead:

(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc508/kristinn_olafur/flipull1.jpg?t=1296001895)

(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc508/kristinn_olafur/flipull2.jpg?t=1296001895)

Can anyone tell from the language on the back of the cart where this is made?

I have not seen a pirate cart that looks like this around here before.

Also got Werewolf for the NES since the only other pirate cart he had was Galaxian but I already have that exact same pirate cart.

A Game Master and Master Link. These are fairly rare and expensive Famicom copiers that allow you to do some cool things, like perform save states with cart games in either the 6M internal memory or onto FDS disks (via the Master Link), play games in selectable incremental slow motion, and copy disks with a built-in copy program. The Master Link connects to the Game Master with a female-to-female DA-15 cable, which I also have but isn't pictured.  I'll have some info within a week or so on my site, including a translated instruction manual and showing what it does.

I will also be getting a copy of "All Night Nippon" on a Famicom cartridge, and yes they are reproductions using the new fixed sprite hack that I made.

Famicom cartridge based reproductions are very hard to come by and so are people willing to do the surgery for said reproduction.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: ericj on February 22, 2011, 06:46:19 PM
The SMB ANN FDS rom image is available, and I think a copy on a FDS disk is better than a cart version with incorrect levels. Just my opinion, though. I imagine that the sprites & levels can be ripped from the FDS image to make a "correct" cart version, too.

EDIT: Moved post; initially posted this under the wrong thread/topic.


Title: Re: Finds (Famicom/FDS)
Post by: NintendoKing on February 22, 2011, 06:52:16 PM
The sprites are all right in the reproduction I am getting but obviously about 1/3 of the levels are wrong. But honestly that doesn't bother me much as I cannot even get past 4-1 by simply playing through in original SMB.

I just wanted the fabled game on a cart, as I do not own a Disk System and likely wont ever.

I picked up 10 Famicom carts I needed on the way home today, put some pics up on my blog here:

http://famicomblog.blogspot.com/2011/03/first-famicom-carts-of-2011.html

It was  a pretty good haul, as I needed 9 of the carts.  I now have 647 of them, almost 2/3 of the way to the whole set.  Its getting extremely difficult at this point to find ones I don't already have, so scoring 9 in one go is quite the coup for me! ;D

LOL, good point!

They were all in a 100-yen each crate!  So I paid 1,000 for all of them (about $10 US).

I had never seen a few of them either.  Mitsume ga tooru goes for about 3,000 yen at most shops in my area, so that was quite the bargain!  Doropie I'd never seen anywhere before.

OK, sorry to be hogging this thread with repeated bargain reporting, but I have to put this here:

http://famicomblog.blogspot.com/2011/03/mega-bargain-of-day-3-consoles-and-game.html

1,000 yen (about 10 US dollars) today bought me:

1 boxed, working AV Famicom;
1 boxed, working Famiclone;
1 boxed, working Game Boy Advance;
1 Super Famicom game (Blues Brothers).

That is 10 dollars for all of them, not 10 dollars each.

This definitely counts as one of the best bargain finds ever.

This may not be the best time to ask, but in case you find other interesting, unusual or valuable titles, I would be interested in buying them from you. In particular action games.

These are definitely not normal prices for Japanese (or any) retro game shops.  This specific shop will occasionally get a massive shipment of stuff in that they just dump in their junk section for rock-bottom prices.  Within about 24 hours all the good stuff is gone, so you have to be quick and lucky to get any of it!

fred j - I will be looking to sell/trade some of my Famicom games at some point.  I'll keep you posted when I do.

Incidentally I put that post up literally minutes before the earthquake struck.  It has, needless to say, put an end to the happy mood I was in.  Thankfully Fukuoka wasn't hit.

Thanks for reading.  I hope I'll eventually get all of the Famicom carts, I need a little over 400 to complete the set.  Unfortunately that includes a lot of the hard-to-find expensive ones, so I'm still pretty far off from the goal.

I've only seen that "Kung Fu" version of Spartan X on Ebay, never in a store.  Its an expensive one for sure, but I don't know what it goes for in stores here.

Thanks, they were a crazy good deal. I was immensely excited.  Sometimes they'll toss a bin of unimpressive titles out for 100 yen (a lot of baseballs, golfs, etc), so when I first saw the bin I thought it would be like that.  Then when I went through them I thought more like "Wait!  There are good games in here!!"

From then on I was like a kid in a candy store.

An unfortunate postscript is that I went in a couple days later expecting to find more good deals but actually found the opposite.  They had a bunch of new Famicom carts out, but instead of insanely cheap they were all insanely overpriced.  1,000 yen each for Dragon Quest games loose, etc.  Nothing less than 1000 yen each.  Its the first time I've ever seen Omocha Souko put rip-off prices on stuff.  I was so dissapointed.

I think it is totally luck of the draw.  If the right person is doing the pricing that day, you can find some great deals.

Today in the mail, Everquest... but unfortunately its broken and only displays garbled graphics.

(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/Evil_Vlad/brokenEVERQUEST.jpg)

Tested on 2 official Famicoms and a Famiclone, so I know its faulty cart which makes me sad.


Already messaged Trenton_net about the broken cart, and am just waiting for a reply.
Heartbroken.  :'(

MS-DOS4, I know and what makes it worse is that when I opened the package I was overly excited then got quickly sad when it didn't function right and ran to my friends house to test it on his systems... same result.

Trenton_net, just messaged me actually saying he would either refund or send me another.  :diskkun:

The Uninvited Gremlin program and music in your crashed game working properly? If yes, maybe that is crashed chr rom or chr ram (I don't know what is the chr in that cart). If this circuit is in the housing DIP, repair is maybe possible to do. (nothing is certain in the hundred percent).

Post by: L___E___T on April 05, 2011, 08:23:26 PM
It is nice, but I've literally been looking for about 5 or 6 years for a reasonably priced beautiful one.  I have the Famicom Micro and P2 faceplate along with all the Famicom Mini games and display boxes so this kinda completed the set after so many years.  I actually don't have the regular Famicom GBA SP and I wonder if I'll bother with the ultra-rare Robot Taisen Mini game, but there ya go.

I must say though, Nico's recent finds are very appetising indeed!  All CIB too by the looks of it! Great!

Yeah, I've been on a Famicom kick lately. All my games for every system are CIB, so I went that way with Famicom aswell. Pretty tempting to just get loose carts for cheap, but nah. Also cool that each of those games also came with the standard papers (though I couldn't bother to include them all in the various pictures) that came with every Famicom game. They're not included more often than not, so I'm pleased that these copies still had them!

Complete copies of Metal Storm and Bucky O'Hare should be arriving soon, though I'm pretty busy with Hebereke (Ufouria) at the moment. Love it!

My Famicom count is up to 19 now, plus 6 CIB Disk System games!  :) Trying to be picky about which games to buy.

Alright, this is a little weird, but cool nonetheless. I received a package today. I was refunded from the guy who was selling a random game from a lot that I thought was too good to be true. Bad communication gave me a free copy of adventure Island. I wasn't expecting any of ordered items to come this early. I wasn't sure at first who gave me it.

Today for $5 locally, I got a Power Games penguin famiclone; I quickly popped Everquest into it and all I get out of the game is a color blotch. I have tested all my other games, its the only one that doesn't work.

Everquest does not work in Famicom, AV Famicom, NES-101 Toploader with adapter, NES-001 Toaster with adapter, Power Games Penguin Famiclone or a Yobo FC game console with adapter.

*sigh*

(http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u68/Evil_Vlad/IMG00085.jpg)


The only system I know it works with based on Trenton_net testing is Game Theory Admiral... is that all it works on?



(The Penguin Famiclone system came with one wireless controller, 1 wired controller, a lightgun and a 111in1 cartridge which appears to have literally 111 individual games.)

I would think all of the games Trenton_net sells would have the same compatibility rate with clones.  The Pokemon Crystal pirate I got from him worked in my Power Joy III when it worked.

I don't know, I just badly wanted to play Everquest on a Famicom.
On a side note, the Penguin clone is loads of fun to use.

EDIT - Trenton_net, made everything alright and today Satomi Hakkenden arrived which is almost exactly the same as Everquest.

I bought this off eBay, it's of course Satomi Hakkenden, the game Waixing used to make Everquest (a title hack and translation from Japanese to Chinese, otherwise identical to the original game.)

I am super excited to own this as I was very sad that Everquest is incompatible with real hardware and apparently some clones also. I had to find out the hard way by ordering it and thinking it was DOA, sending it back, receiving a second copy but it didn't work either and then finally sending the second copy back and getting a refund.

This one is interesting, by Waixing, I'd really want to know how to play it :

(http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/3705/zhengbashijimwk.jpg)

According to http://bootleggames.wikia.com/wiki/Waixing it's "争霸世纪" (Zheng Ba Shi Ji) however on the box (despite that korean sticker) and the cart label there is "世纪争霸戰" (Shi Ji Zheng Ba Zhan) which all loosely means "Hegemony Century" or "Century Battle" BUT after digging a little deeply into emu-russia and FamicomGuide (hello FamicomFreak :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7BYi8_XkGg it came to my attention that it's a port of a SNES game called "Europe Sensen", pretty awesome, huh?  :gamer:

In response to the first question, Bomberman II and Zelda are actually included, the latter of which is the Famicom version. However, as far as I can tell there isn't a battery mounted in it. That said, I haven't tested it properly yet. I'd look inside, but I'd probably break the cart knowing me.

What's most interesting, to me at least, is that "Gold Mario" is actually Super Mario Bros. 2 from the FDS. :)

So I finally have something to post about, tho I'm going to be lazy and not post a pic. At any rate, the local Goodwill (closest to me) has been having great deals on their NES carts. They're mostly set at $1.99. Today I went in there and saw a very strange looking one. Turned out to be a Supervision 110-in-1! Yes, for only two bucks. (Even better, I picked up a copy of Intelligent Qube for $6, but that's not a Fami/NES find.)

Yeah, of all the people on this forum you're the only one that seems to be getting a steady flow of at least 100 of these things every couple of months. Always thought pirate FDS disks would be pretty hard to find by now, you must have a good source from HK or something :P

BTW, I don't know much about FDS, but I'm assuming the majority of those games are ports from cart games that were never on disk officially?

Yeah, I do have a pretty good connection.  :)

And you're correct,  the majority are cart-to-disk converted games.  :diskkun:

What is that Pokemon cartridge? I've never seen it before  :o

Edit: Ah, according to your blog it's Pokemon Gold Silver. Never knew there was another variant of the cartridge out there.
