Been working on this for a while, it covers just about everything I know from picking the donor board, prepairing the ROM even ExHiROM games.

17 pages of screen shots and pics of my boards I have made in the past.  Let me know if anything is unclear.

I dont know where the pins 2 and 3 of the LS139 need to be soldered =/

I´ve read the document that you posted but still can´t get it to work, can you help?

Best regards,

Rodragon

Glad to see people like this.

As for NES I am planning a short write up when retro stage starts offering NES PCBs but not covering how to use donors

MAD #12 and #13, those points are a21 and a20.

Oh, and the original FF3 is a 24mb rom, so you only need 3 eproms, not 4.

When using an 1J0N to make an 16mbit game with 27C801, where goes the pin 1 of the 74LS139? Because the 1J0N and the 1AON dont have an MAD1.

I´ve tryed to see on the MrPete1985 pictures but no success =/

Awesome post. Thank you for sharing this. The only thing I'd mention, because most people around here are probably not big on sports games, is that NHL 94-95 are still considered by some to be the greatest hockey video games ever made. I'd personally stay away from using them as donors, but to each his own I guess

*bump*

I got a question:
I got a GQ-4x Programmer and TSOP from ST: M29F032
Boards: TSOP ADapter 3 from buyicnow, closed resistors.
The adapter is not recognized until I saw that i need a tsop40 to 36 converter as seen on mmmonkey.
I then bought an adapterboard to be able to program them:
DIP40-DIP36 Programmer Adapter I-1
Item ID00002570

and also a nonassembled version:

DIP40-DIP36 Programmer Adapter II
Item ID00002623

None of my so far 3 soldered M29s are detected by the programmer.
Questions:
A) do i have to close a jumper on the first adapter ?
B) is my 2nd adapter assembled correctly ?

Pics here:
