    Default Some of my recent repro carts

    I've been on a major repro building kick for the last few weeks, thought i'd share some pics.

    NES Labyrinth (English Translation) (PAL)
    One of my favourite films, had to have the game on cartridge





    NES Splatterhouse (English Translation) (PAL)
    Thanks to MottZilla'a amazing MMC-3 hack i can now play this on a real NES





    SNES Sanrio World Smash Ball (English Translation) (PAL)
    One of the most fun and addictive SFC games i've played



    SNES Dragon Ball Z Hyper Dimension (English Translation) (PAL)
    This is the translation of the Japanese version, not the crummy French release that's missing the story mode. The first SA-1 board repro i've built.





    (continued in next post)

    SNES Star Ocean (English Translation) (NTSC US)
    Built for a fellow DP forum member. Was really impressed by the game, am planning on building one for myself now





    SNES Little Magic (English Translation) (NTSC US)
    Again, built for a DP forum member. Simple puzzle style game, but incredibley addictive.





    I'm always available for custom work if anybody needs anything built (repro's, homebrew manufacture, console mods, hardware design, etc). I'm based in the UK but can happily deal with PAL or NTSC carts and consoles.

    [strike]Why'd you replace only one of the roms for star ocean? Where you still working on it?[/strike]

    Nevermind that question, I never noticed that the last two megs of the J and translated are exactly the same! So you only need to replace the one... So you just put the first 4 megs on the flash chip, correct?

    Yes, the translation patch doesn't affect the code on the second chip so it can be left as it is.

    Kind Regards, Andy.

    I can attest that the star ocean cart works perfectly and without any problems.

    I am VERY interested in the Star Ocean english translation cartridge!

    What media do you use for cartridge labels? Does it have a gloss or laminate on it?

    I use HP high-gloss photo paper, has a great "sheen" but is fairly suceptable to damage if it's aggressively handeled, and it needs to be glued down.

    Here's an example of my work ...

    What did the actual game companies use, dye sublimation, laser, thermal? Ideally you'd want to print onto something with gloss and is a label, so you don't have to glue it on.

    WOW you use really huge wire. You ever try and use smaller wire??? ive made a few repros myself and its MUCH easier with smaller wire. I get mine at radioshack, i forget the exact size though. ill have to dig it up, been awhile since my homebrewing days.

    Actual NES game labels are 4 color press printing with a layer of fine laminate and a very very high tack/industrial/permanent adhesive on the back.

    I've just been using Sumvision adhesive-backed photo paper. Results have been very good so far, even better since i replaced my old Epson printer with an HP Photosmart D5160.

    Where do you get the graphics for your labels? All custom?

    Nice work. How much of an initial investment / what sort of skills are required to do this as a hobbyist? It's something I would be interested in attempting someday.

    Wow, nice work on the SNES repros. I don't think I've ever seen SNES repro carts aside from Dragon Quest V.

    This just makes me wish I had the money to get eproms... I have the equip to do repros myself as well but... grarg. Stupid real life getting in the way...

    For those that do repros - I'd be curious about label ideas as well. Printers that would be worth it and so forth. Or, like the homebrew RPG world... would Kinko's be a good idea?

    I think the reason the snes repros look so thick is because for some folk it's easier to solder using stripped IDE cable - solder the first and last pins, then solder the rest as it's held down. then separate wire and presto.
    -AB+

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    Nice.

    I think that might be tough to find outside of the UK, but I'm not afraid to look!

    Thanks!!
