The reluctant US SMS that didnt want to be japanese

EDIT2: A new solution (much more invovled ) was suggested by Charles MacDonald this will be interresting to try.

EDIT: Nice, I got my answers in that thread. I'll have to backtrack on when did this become a dangerous thing to try, FYIW I used 10k res to short pin 34.

This MOD does not work on my SMS:

















I tried everything, including burning a Japanese BIOS which works great here:


















While its cute and all (especially with my RGB mod to a Commodore 1084), I still don't get the mark III boot on my Wonderboy 1/2/3 carts when I ground pin 34 on 315-5216.

Another user is getting the exact same prob with this motherboard rev.

Any takes?

  1. Sorry to be off topic, but any chance of a very rough ETA on the next version of Chipsounds? Given the goodies that were in the last update, I'm kinda excited...
