Try to hold L1 + L2 before X and hold until it'll show generic 128k cartridge.
OK I was doing it wrong, now comes up as cart id overide however result is same. Says erasing
, successfully erased then flash failed. Cart is untouched.

No matter got one flashed, would of been a spare anyway, maybe flashable in the future

Try uploading exe using either No$psx or attached X-Killer.

X-killer is really outdated this can happen depending on your rom version.
No$spx is prefered here after doing this 1 wire mod (the switch is optional).

What version did you flash?

@sickle pictures of chip and id that I can't flash,

i accidently cloned the cart to itself and it said it done it successfully, percentage went up anyway.

Also any idea of why I had issues with cheat discs as per previous posts

Also the clone cart page looks corruot as it looks like it's merged with another page that mentions dont stare at laser!

If you need more pics let me know

@Mdv I bet your Smart Cartrige is on legged chips like mine, Puppydogpals has square chip with no legs soldered directly so maybe just incompatible?

Mine is a CSI CAT28F010N GAMEHUNTER/PSWD

And this is my Smart Cartridge, I can't flash it anymore unless I'll force generic 128k one (L1 + L2) so I don't remember how it was detected as.

Hi, sorry for the delay - been hard at work.
Thanks for keeping on top of things, Squaresoft, Love yah <3

@ Puppydogpals,
Cheers for the feedback.

The disc issue has been fixed and will be rolling out shortly :D
"Error during SysCNF" etc does suggest it doesn't like the discs you're using though.
Try Verbatim?

So... the chip you posted The "Flash" branded one.
I have one the same, and it can't be flashed without a 12v source.
I think I'm right in saying if you go into caetla with it, for example and try to save settings... it won't save there either.
Essentially, they knew what they were doing and put out cheap carts which couldn't be written to :(


@mdv

Nah, ditching parallel support!

Lol that chip does look upside down, but I think it's just 'cause the voltage regulator's on the 'wrong' side.
Doesn't feel right though.

@Haker120

I've added support for that winbond chip now, thanks ^^
viewtopic.php?f=75&t=722&start=440#p19299

I've also been working on V2 and V3 support, so hopefully that annoying dual-chip cart will be good!
viewtopic.php?f=75&t=722&start=420#p19263

Got Caetla dual-booting on a V2 right now!

I'm using Maxwell cd's burned at 8x got them from tesco reduced to clear 25 for £5 (4.50 with my staff discount) all other games work spot on with and it did boot OK using breaker pro so might of been a bug, saying that my rebuilt ones work fine now. Will retest when update is out and report back.

Yeah if I manually try to add games or codes they don't save. Can a 12v be added somehow to flash, I'm not adverse to some soldering if required. Would that not damage the ps1 if extra power was introduced though?

Thanks for your replies

Hah, right, perfect... yeah switch from Maxell to Verbatim.
I've even found the Verbatim ones sold in Tesco are way better than the 50x spindles on amazon!

TBH I never looked into it.
The PSX doesn't have the juice for it, but I guess the parallel port would? Might want to ask Dan or Paul on the discord- that's their kinda area.

@sickle Thanks and what should I flash then? :D And to be clear, my GameBuster is only 128k or 256k with no (or yes?) possibility to get UniROM + Caetla? :)
