    Dumping Sega Saturn Cartridges with less hardware

    If you are looking for a little project, then why not? :) I don't personally need it now that I have a working USB DataLink setup again, but I'd happily test anything for you. Using minimodem will always be slow(er), but SGE's advantage is "availability" not "convenience" - with the only...

    The Sega Mega Mouse | A Look At Every Compatible Game by Jenovi

    The following table lists issues, and other items of note, that I experienced during my testing. Note: It is possible I have attributed the issues to the wrong item, due to lack of different hardware for comparison, e.g. low sensitivity in Wacky Worlds might not be caused by the game, but my...

    The Sega Mega Mouse | A Look At Every Compatible Game by Jenovi

    This seemed a nice place to put this... this post is not as entertaining as the above video, and only covers the Mega Drive/Genesis, but it does have tables! Tested with: a Shuttle mouse (with a SAT->MD adapter), PAL Mega Drive 2 (revision: VA1.8) at both 50Hz and 60Hz, and a Mega Everdrive X7...

    Mega Drive / Genesis controllers on Saturn

    I do actually have an Arcade Racer! I just tested it, and unfortunately Virtua Racing on Megadrive does not seem to be compatible with the Arcade Racer. I tested EUROPE, USA, and JAPAN releases on a Mega Everdrive X7, as I have none of the original VR carts - so there is a potential...

    Mega Drive / Genesis controllers on Saturn

    My Saturn Shuttle Mouse arrived - I can confirm it works on the Megadrive with an appropriate adapter. The combination of a Saturn mouse and DIY adapter could be a far cheaper option than buying a Megadrive mouse. Note: It seems that games designed for the 2-button Sega Mouse use the Shuttle...

    Dumping Sega Saturn Cartridges with less hardware

    I have written a script with QuickBMS (get it from the developer's site: quickbms by Luigi Auriemma) that works with the excellent Indirect Dump feature of Save Data Manager; this allows you to dump Sega Saturn cartridge ROMs without a Gamer's Cart/ USB Dev Cart. As long as you can transfer save...

    Mega Drive / Genesis controllers on Saturn

    I couldn't find a simple description of how to wire an adapter for this. For anyone else in the same situation - here are the pin numbers to wire an MD/SS controller adapter: SMS Pinout MD Pinout SS Pinout DE-9 Pin number SS Pin number Up Data 0 Data 0 1 3 Down Data 1 Data 1 2...

    Old Pro Action Replay Cart with USB DataLink

    Some updates on compatibility with this cartridge: cafe-alpha has resolved the issue with cart detection in Pseudo Saturn Kai/Save Data Manager. When using this new version of PSKai, this PAR cart will now communicate with the USB DataLink as it did with PSKai/SDM V6.324. Action Replay 1.94...

    Old Pro Action Replay Cart with USB DataLink

    Thanks for all the cool software cafe-alpha :) Of course you can, that's why I packaged the ROM up with the screen shot, and used those flle names :D I'll do that, as I have a cart with EMS commslink, and a cart with Datel commslink - so should be able to test whatever you want.

    Old Pro Action Replay Cart with USB DataLink

    I have been using Save Game Extractor a lot in the last few weeks, it is a great way to get saves off the Saturn. Also I've been using your Save Game Copier too, to get saves on to the Saturn - the only shame with that is having to burn a new CDR each time I have a file to copy. So, thanks very...

    EMS Action replay 4-in-1 - recovery suggestions

    11 Year later, I finally redid my soldering on this cart - and I managed to flash the latest Pseudo Saturn Kai to it. It seems the issue was likely the cartridge port, after many failed attempts with different configurations of cardboard holding the cart in different places, I finally managed...

    Old Pro Action Replay Cart with USB DataLink

    I have just bought an old Pro Action Replay (with Comms Port) to use with my USB DataLink (I fried my AR 4in1 Plus years ago). Cart details: Flash Vendor ID: 0101 - AMD Flash Device ID: 2020 - AM29F010 Firmware: ACTION REPLAY SATURN Version 1.8f (see attached ARS_18F.zip for the ROM) I...

    EMS Action replay 4-in-1 - recovery suggestions

    I might give the chip swap a go then. update: Not successfully resoldered the chips yet. I'm going to try to make some legs for them as it will be easier to solder. I'll repost once I get any further. I'm in England so ordering from both of those sites is possible. I only had a quick look but...

    EMS Action replay 4-in-1 - recovery suggestions

    So the second or odd chip isn't being written to but the first or even one is? I hope I understood that correctly. In theory then if I desoldered the chips (or rather the more convenient package they are on) and soldered them back in each others place I would get the reverse results? Or are...

    EMS Action replay 4-in-1 - recovery suggestions

    That's good to know. It's quite possible I borked it a few months ago. A failed attempt at doing a 50/60Hz mod made my last Saturn a bit spazzy. My new saturn I modded properly. Well I think I'll try to get a new cart anyway, at worst I now have a 1MB/4MB RAM cart that I don't have to go through...
