General Discussion / Re: N64 Save Support (FW v0.23)
« Last post by skaman on 02/Aug/2018 09:20:57 AM »
After I looked at the Pokemon Snap save, I vaguely recalled that another poster had mentioned problems with their save.

The previously reported problem was on a US Pokemon Snap cart.  The issue was exactly the same.  If you look in the save file at 0x8000-0xEFFF, that is not valid save data.  The data written is actually the block address that the Retrode is trying to read.

I could not duplicate the issue with my US Pokemon Snap (29L1100) cart.  Other testers did not report any problems with their carts.

I'm not sure why the two carts have issues specifically at those addresses.  It could be a power or timing issue related to the flashram chip.  Try connecting the Retrode to different USB connections and redump the save.  Check to see if the data at 0x8000-0xEFFF changes.

Good Luck!

The Donkey Kong save works for me in PJ64.

The Pokemon Snap save looks like it has correct save data but I couldn't get it to work after saveswapping the file.

Could you try reverting the Retrode FW to v0.23 or v0.23a and redump the Pokemon Snap save?

Good Luck!

Unable to dump Pokemon Snap correctly and Donkey Kong 64 on .25a-beta firmware. Saves both showing up on the N64 but wont work with project 64. Chip in Pokemon snap is 29L1100KC. Save files look OK to me in HEX editor
General Discussion / Re: Remapping the buttons?

After some thought, I think the second idea would be actually the cleanest solution, maybe with full button names so that there would be no conflicts in case that this is eventually implemented for other more complex systems (like N64's directional C buttons and stuff like that). So something like:

Code: [Select]
[mdButtons] B C A X Z Y START MODE          #    Buttons in the order in which they'll be assigned when connected through the USB port (Example: START MODE A B C X Y Z)

I really hope that somebody can implement it sometime...

Ran across an eBay listing for Game Gear slots:

In case anyone was looking for one and didn't want to pull one from a console.
General Discussion / Re: What is Going on With the Kazzo NES Dumper?

I actually happen to know the answer to this. There was a project on Kickstarter called NESMaker and the project creators apparently made a deal with the folks at InfiniteLives to produce a new version of the Kazzo (and potentially updated firmware?) to go with the NESMaker software.  I think they are busy trying to finish everything to get the hardware fulfillment in for people that backed at that tier.

The NESMaker software is a front-end that helps users dynamically make their own NES games without ever actually writing or knowing the underlying code.  This will allow people to make their own nes game carts using the Kazzo.

I got my Kazzo from them a year or two ago and it was quickly delivered. Hopefully once the Kickstarter stuff gets sorted out they will be back to business as usual.

I have another question. Apparently the reason the GBX can't dump multi game gba carts is that it dumps only the game selector. In the thread I read, forcing the Retrode to detect the cart size via editing the [forcesize] option in the config file should produce a good dump. However, it would appear that it only supports integer values. So if I wanted to dump Super Mario Advance 4, which is apparently 2.43 mb according to No-Intro, would I just put 3 as the value in [forcesize]?

You'll probably have to update the firmware yourself, but it isn't hard to do.

As far as SGB is concerned, there isn't anything to dump AFAIK, except maybe the built-in stock borders? Most good GB emulators have SGB support, so you can play games with special SGB palettes and borders, as that content is already in the GB cart. The special "Help!" samples in Donkey Kong require SNES emulation that no GB emulators handle, so the only way to get SGB sound enhancement is to play on a real SNES.
General Discussion / What is Going on With the Kazzo NES Dumper?
« Last post by Damned on 12/Jul/2018 05:20:37 AM »
I was interested to purchase it because the Retrode 2 doesn't have any plugins that support NES / Famicom and the Kazzo does exactly that, with them even mentioning designing a brand new model, but I'm worried because...

We're doing everything we can to finalize the hardware and start production this month (Jan 2018) to support release by Feb 2018.

It's been five months since then and the Kazzo is still not in stock. When I sent in a support ticket bringing this up, asking them if they had cancelled their plans, they did not respond.

Can anyone with more experience with Infinite NES Lives tell me if this has happened before or if production is still going on? I'm just nervous, because there doesn't seem to be any other NES dumpers around and there are a lot of NES games I would like to dump.

Yes, I realize this is a forum for the Retrode and not the Kazzo, but the Kazzo doesn't have its own forums to ask on.
