Today I felt like playing a game that was never released “Mr Gimmick!”.   Who wants to wait for another person to make a reproduction and ship it…. when you can just do it yourself! 😀 Also If you want to see me play it for the first time badly, skip to 10 minutes in.

I did speed up the boring parts, but left them in so that you could see what creating a reproduction cartridge actually entails. This was the first time I have tried making a reproduction cartridge and the total real world time was about an hour 😀

For the CHR eprom I used a 27c1001 128k
For the PRG eprom I used a 27c020 256k
The game sacrificed was Batman Return of the Joker by sunsoft as it is the only released North American game that used the FME-7

To split up the PRG and CHR files from the original NTSC version of the rom I used a program called TNINES under dosbox.

The NES I used is modded for full true stereo audio and proper composite output, sadly my camera simply cannot pick up the wonderful audio I was hearing 😦 I also still need a bit of practice with recording 😛 I will get better! I promise! 😀

Thanks for watching! 🙂
