Gradius III SA1 mod working on PAL SNES

Juni 26th, 2019

thanks to Vitor Vilea for the great Gradius III  port with use of the SA1 Chip.:-)
No its time to make it real. As I done SA1 mods before with a 3,3V Flash chip I used this way

you need:

1x AMS1117 3.3V voltage Regulator Low Drop SOT-223

1x 100nF kerko (yellow)

1x MX29L3211 Flash

1x AS6C1008-55SIN RAM (1M)

I patched the japanese Rom and duplicated it 8 times (not sure if needed).

copy /b g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin + g3jpsa1.bin 8g3jpsa1.bin

use Voltage Regulator with kerko and wire 3,3V to the 3 detached Pins of (33,23,1) MX29L3211

Remove original RAM and free the soldepads from green coat and place in AS6C1008-55SIN

and ready to go without any slowdowns….

Lift Pin 127 (5V floating) of U3 SA1 for 50Hz PAL SNES (regionfix)

 

You can use a 28F1610 instead of the MX29L3211 3,3V Flash

29F1610

Here you have only to lift pin1 and set pin 1 directly to 5V
