Title: Problem with a PAL SNES cartridge
Post by: Atamos on 11/Aug/2013 01:01:22 AM
I tried to dump a prototype of Super Widget on the SNES, it is the PAL version, but it doesn't work, the file I see when I try to dump it is ''2600Cartridge'', so I guess it doesn't recognize it. I read on this forum that it was because of a lockout chip, some sort of copy protection, what can I do about it ?

Thanks for your response !

Try cleaning the pins. It doesn't have an enhancement chip as far as I know.

I have already cleaned the cartridge, but it doesn't change anything.  :-\

That's odd. I assume you've confirmed it works on a SNES?

Not really since I don't own a PAL SNES, so I'm not sure if the cartridge actually work.

The game may not have a proper header. Have you tried the following entry in the config file?

[forceSystem] snes

I just tried and this time I get a file named ''NoName&BP.0000'', when I use the emulator to play it here's what I get:

Not a good sign I guess.  :-\
