I have a Gladiator cart here which just shows the following output:
Pictures of the PCBs here:
Visually I don't see any components missing when comparing the photos to the PCB scans available.
I already removed and inserted the EPROMs but that did not change the video output...
Success! Puzzli2 and Puzzli2 Super work now with the fixed ROM. Switching versions with JP2 works too.
Huge thanks @iq_132 :)
Small addition for your tutorial pdf: you have to close JP1. Else the game will boot into an error.
Good idea, I will check the KOV ROM again with JP2 closed.
It would be great if you can take a look at your 27c322 stash as it seems like @iq_132 is MIA and I dont think anyone else has the source code to the ROM generator tool :(
Not exactly - I changed the LAN interface configuration to 10.1.0.0/24 instead of the 10.0.0.0/24 subnet.
So for example 10.1.0.1 for the wipi and 10.1.0.3 for the netdimm and connected everything to a switch to rule out a cross over cable problem.
so anything I can actually do now or try?
You said you tried Puzzli before. Do you still have the working deprotected bin file I could write to the 27c322? The generator tool, which was posted in this thread, still needs a fix.
Yes a few original ones but not another one of your custom carts.
After thinking about it I still have the original ICs I replaced with the english patched ones from KOV SH and KOV 2 ND:
With the KOV SH one installed I can get the cart to boot into a test menu.
No idea if thats a good sign..
closing JP1 gives me the boot animation. The date screen stays on and then I get the same error "OPCODE 1111" as before overlayed.
closing JP2 or JP1 and JP2 changes nothing.
No, I dont have any other program ROMs here :(
I followed the puzzli guide: https://neo-source.com/stuff/puzzli2 instructions.pdf
So I used "PGM_RG_U5.jed".
This could be a problem as the guide assumes that you use the combined U1 "puzzli2_and_super-deprotected.bin" which is not available as iq_132 has not fixed the tool to generate it yet...
So I finally had time to assemble the Puzzli cart - sadly it crashes with both the puzzli2 and the puzzli2s ICs installed.
Puzzli2s shows the following error:
Puzzli2 the following:
@iq_132 any idea whats wrong? are those two generated roms perhaps still broken as well, as the combined rom...
