No, Sicklebrick never released the source. Would be good to have it up on Git so we can all work on it together to improve it.
Development Console: SCPH-5502 with 8MB RAM, MM3 Modchip, PAL 60 Colour Modification (for NTSC), PSIO Switch Board, DB-9 breakout headers for both RGB and Serial output and an Xplorer with CAETLA 0.34.

PlayStation Development PC: Windows 98 SE, Pentium 3 at 400MHz, 128MB SDRAM, DTL-H2000, DTL-H2010, DTL-H201A, DTL-S2020 (with 4GB SCSI-2 HDD), 21" Sony G420, CD-R burner, 3.25" and 5.25" Floppy Diskette Drives, ZIP 100 Diskette Drive and an IBM Model M keyboard.

UniRom IPL
Just FYI, as for the readme, the dev of IPL was Herben. There's a credits option ;) .
Image
Yeah, BreakerPro is a blatant ripoff of ImportPlayer Light v2.1, on a bootable pressed disc, and with loads of code NOPed to hide the autor's name and homepage address.
Small typo in the UniROM author name;
The disc image lacks a valid bootsector with a proper license+logo.

IPL's a good choice of a plugin :) . A buddy of mine tried booting PS-X-Change V2 before problematic games. While it worked for most games, it had horrible side-effects on some (Destruction Derby Raw ?). We've found later that PS-X-Change (supposedly anti-antimod crapolla) was corrupting the RAM lol.

Currently playing legend of dr4goon (anti-mod game), no problems, re:dc problems also fixed... maybe some side effects, have not found any yet

Much thanks to Herben =) , did not know that

I can see it corrupting the RAM as there is so little of it LOL, plus it might corrupt your saves...
However when used as a disc I have found breaker pro to work perfectly, but that is disc. Also, I used it mostly on ps2.
Anti-mod can be turned on or off as well. Not sure how that might work from cart as opposed to disc.
No swapping hooray

Sorry if this has been asked before, but what is the difference between / reason for, unirom_caetla.rom, and unriom_caetlaNTSC.rom. Unirom_caetla.rom is for PAL consoles? Probably... Just wanting to make sure thanks.

Also I am confused about how to use Caetla. I make a new game entry but then it goes back to the unirom screen and does not save it. I cannot boot the plugin after that? what is meant by "caetla full boot" it seems to be the same as caetla fast boot. Does not seem to even work because I can't boot the game after putting in a code.

Unirom_caetla.rom is pre-configured for PAL display.
unriom_caetlaNTSC.rom is pre-configured for NTSC display.

Symptoms of an EEPROM that is not supported by Catela.
Also happens when a partial Caetla ROM file is flashed, but it's not the case here, because the Caetla is properly set up and UniROM takes place after it.

What are your cartridge and its EEPROM model ?

Full boot goes to Caetla's main menu, like with the original Caetla ROM and the cartridge switch ON;
Fast boot does Caetla's Fastest Start ("Loading" box), and seems to outerpass the switch OFF configuration of Caetla (Fastest Start/System BIOS/Standby for Comms).

It sounds like Caetla does not like your EEPROM, or your switch mapping, or both :shrug .

Gameshark pro 3.0
sst28sf040 (ar/gs pro) - 512 kb

I figured it out I think just had to push button on the side. Duh. Yeah theres a button not a switch so you can't tell the position.

Adding a new code, is it saved to the memory card or the gs pro cartridge? memory card I would guess?

So I can't load the plugin after caetla it seems? What exactly is the boot routine for the game? Is it unirom fastboot or some type of caetla boot? If so is caetla boot more compatible with games? Thanks

Actually "new game record" is still not working. It seems the only way to exit is to push X (cancel), do you want to save>yes>back to unirom start screen.

That 4M SST isn't supported by Caetla, that's why it cannot save codes and config.
Freezes on "Loading" box and fast/full Caetla boot doing the same is due to the unsupported PAR3/GS3 switch mapping.
Also, the controller does bank swap.

Get a Xploder/Xplorer/X-Terminator device to have a functionnal UniROM+Caetla setup. Preferably a non-FX one.

Getting a gameshark pro was suggested on this thread, the guy said "there is plenty of room" for caetla and unirom. Well that maybe true, unfortunately caetla does not work.

I would like to get a Xploder but they seem pretty rare and expensive.

sent you a PM kHn. Thanks for your help =)

EDIT- so it appears in order to fast bios boot you must have unirom + caetla rom flashed. unirom standalone will not work it will just hang on loading. hang on. It seems that fast bios boot will fix most if not all problems with games

I get screen corruption on unirom after a while, the empty blue spaces turn into garbled squares, but it goes away usually.... gameshark pro heats up a bit.. LOL

Yeah, I get that random screen corruption sometimes too, on the Loading hang on screen, whatever cartridge I use (Xplorer included).
Also, it's already been reported before, but sometime the built-in X-Flash pops out a few seconds after power on, for no reasons :? .

I am having some trouble getting Med1Evil (usa) b4ckup to boot

I am sure I booted it before on ps2 with psxlauncher I think?
And the disc boots in epsxe... but it does start with black screen

it does not like the noCash unlock it seems.

EDIT- hey, I have made a patch for MediEvil. Google medievil unirom patch :D

Just tried installing it to a Gameshark 2.1 cart.

When I boot it up, I see a welcome screen(if you bought it from eBay, blah blah blah")

I press X to continue and it goes right to the ROM selection menu(as if I had the UniROM disc inside).

Don't know why this is happening as it should be the UniROM Standalone.

If you see that screen it means you flashed your GS successfully (yay!)
Put a disc in and just keep pressing O if it goes to x-flash (black screen)
eventually it will work
once you learn the shortcut buttons you can push them at the first screen.
You are going to have to use fastboot if you installed unirom standalone. There is no shortcut button for that. You must use the noCash unlock (r1) before the fastboot.
Its better to install unirom caetla. What cheat cartridge do you have?
1001 unit wow, that's an antique =p

I got it working and installed but whenever I try and boot Japanese games it won’t go past the start screen. Only NTSC burned games will work?
