    Default NES Multicart question

    I found what I think is an nes multicart at a used bookstore a little while ago and have been unsuccessful in making the thing work. I would really like to play it, but all it does when I load it up is cause my NES to blink. It's not a system based problem cause both the nes' in my room usually boot up games with no problem at all. So, is there something else I need to do for it to work? I remember having a multicart on my first nes years ago, and I believe my dad soldered some kind of wire into it, but I'm not sure why he did that, it was years ago. So anyone got any tips? I tried cleaning it, but I'm not sure on the best method to clean an nes cart.

    Here's some pictures....the box doesn't really seem to match up with the cart but that's what it was in....it's about the size of a GBA box.

    That might be it. Compare the number of metal connector in the bottom of the cart with another NES game--the famicom has more or less pins or something.

    You need to clip your lock out pin. I beleive you can find a "FAQ" on simplynes.com. Very easty to do.

    it wil play on a american 72 pin NES.

    Edit with linkage

    http://simplynes.emucamp.com/

    It's under Misc. "Make your NES universal"

    I have the same multi myself. If it was smaller, it would not even fit into the cart slot. You may just need a little cleaning as well. Multis are usually a pain to get working.
    I love you guys, in a no-sexula way.

    Hit me up on Xbox live or if you live in the Toledo area. Always down to play. Live ID: Spoontoss

    Looks like the pins do differ a bit....the game will show up for a second, it has the little bubble bobble dragon, and it walks across the screen and it has a selection grid for the games. The one it starts out on is ice climber. I'll try the FAQ you suggested above and see what happens, thanks for the help!

    Supervisions are pretty common around the net, but everytime I bid on one on eBay it either gets removed or gets bid too high for me.

    lol, it was more for the nostalgia factor than the gameplay. Most of those games I had on my old multicart (999 in 1 or whatever it was) so it was cool to have em again.

    I don't think that you needed to modify your NES to play it, actually. I own a Supervision cartridge and I didn't need to mod my NES to play it. Supervision pirates are NTSC, so they will run fine in an American NES.

    I dunno, I tried it various times and cleaned it a few as well and nothing worked. The game would start up and do the blinking problem. After clipping off the chip on the board it worked without a problem first try.

    NEs multi carts are pretty cool. i like the ones that differ from the usual ones with the same crap on it. like one i have has pac-land, and some action 52 quality games, and know of someone that has a cart with some pretty fun unique games (moai kun or something similar was the name i think, neat little puzzler )

    My friend had several multi-carts with a famicom/NES converter in the early 90's. They were a blast. One of them had Ninja Gaiden 3, Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, Adventure Island 2, and some other great ones.

    Was Macross disappointing to you Hellvin?

    I have heard of some rare pirates that demand the console be modded or be inserted in a pirate console. However, since my console has been modded for yearts, I don't know if I have any because all of them work!
