Re: UniROM 8 (2nd beta's released!)

@pippy Heyhey, like @squaresoft says, the first 128kb should be fine (unirom_standalone.rom). Unirom8 also addresses the black screen on boot issue from the 100x models so you should be good. Would love to support the second chip/(128k-256k) carts carts, but obvs you're never quite sure what you're ...

Re: UniROM 8 (2nd beta's released!)

@Apache Thunder Solder pads are quite big on the mainboard though, can solder to them pretty easily then screw something into the lid, etc. (e.g. using breakwaway breadboard wires or something. looks like at least 300% cooler!) Cool, glad it's working. Seems like a fun game, hopefully I get some tim...

Re: UniROM 8 (2nd beta's released!)

Oh man, it really was the wild west back then... no real standards, so I'd just try until it works. Unirom6 afaik *only* supports flashing .exe files, so you'd be quite limited You can use XFlash through it though which supports some/most of the xplorer stuff (memory editor and all that - there's a ...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

No worries man, cheers for pointing it out. Fixed the layout and dropped a wee credit at the top. DSI loader sounds cool - one of those things I always wanted to get into but such little time! (And if I break it, where will my animal crossing buddies live?) Unirom's now mostly C with a couple KB of ...

Hah, thank you Spenser, missed a few things there. Without getting too far off topic: layout issue: lmao no that's just a bug, I forgot some newlines when switching WriteLine to Write! goto: gonna keep the goto 'cause it's fewer variables and there's no point fixing something VS is wrong about, lol ...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

@apache thunder That's the switch code in place for the next release! However it needs to be in the OFF position to enable unirom (due to some carts having a push button and weird mappings on unknown carts.) It's a tentative change though and could be reverted at any point if it's causing issues! Re...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

Sounds like good improvements :) I also noticed that one game seems to overflow the stack. Battle Arena Toshinden 4 PAL (now an Anime game for some reason) seems to crash into a region where UniROM variables are stored :p https://i.imgur.com/VlCCSh1.png https://i.imgur.com/6BILSiL.jpg Thanks for te...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

@mistamontiel Cheers, it's not the cart I thought, but that's super helpful :D Should be cleared up now. @mistamontiel, @apache thunder There's now an "Exit" option which drops you back to the normal BIOS. Doesn't keep the CD unlocked, but hey, it's a start! @rama Lol can work on the X/O switch when...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

Lol tbh, I was just turning it while it was spinning up and gave it a little extra for good measure. Good to know though, thanks.

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

@apache thunder thanks man, I'll have a fiddle. Generally in the past I've just turned it slightly each time the laser degraded beyond reading... but this time it seems to have stabilised a little. I'll grab a reading for reference next time I crack it open! @misamontiel Definitely a bug! Like I men...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

Yeah, booting via any of the builtin bios methods seems to work, so now it just checksums the file and forces a different kinda boot if there are any issues. Bonus: there's now a fastboot option :p (Not sure what's different tried re-initing the CD drive, messing with interrupts, shuffling memory ar...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

@Apache Thunder for this one particular game (Jumping Flash) it was a unirom issue - I added a fastboot workaround which has helped. my retail unit also struggles with legit discs since tweaking it to read CDrs... no biggie really, easier to store them in a spindle and test quickly. @kailen No worri...

@rama3 Aah, makes sense. Never looked at ISO/CD foromat before but I wouldn't have guessed 1 sect / 0x800 bytes would require 0x930 of metadata. @kailen Please try the download that SquareSoft74 just added - that's for your 01,20 device. @apache_thunder ...crappy memorex cds Having some luck with Ma...

Re: UniROM 8.0.b1 Released!

@rama3 Lmao you use the hex editor like a real psychopath... 58 columns. Glad you like it tho! My understanding is the -J systems have different CD firmware (rather than something at the bios level)... is that where the sync bytes check would happen? I don't have a machine to test, but thanks for th...

@squaresoft74 Cheers bud, will get that into the next build. I have an Intel-licensed "1 Megabit (128 K x 8-bit)" from a password cart that works, so chances are good! You know offhand if there's any extra drama or fuckery to get these ones written to? @rama3 Lol not a clue! I just used some old too...
