Universal Programmer & SNES SuperCIC

I just got my first Universal Programmer last week, and thought for a test run I’d make a SuperCIC ship for my SNES.

All that’s needed is a PIC16F630 and the Lock code from the developers site. All credit to Ikari_01 for the time and skills to reverse engineer the Nintendo CIC Lockout device.

So this mod allows me to remove my existing 50/60hz and CIC disabling switches. Its a fully switchless mod using the reset button to change modes. SuperCIC also allows full compatibility between PAL and NTSC games and behaves just as either of the original CIC chips.
Expect more BIOS and EPROM programming projects to feature here soon….

Christmas Time

Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!


At Christmas time I would always get excited for a new console, or the next must have game when I was a kid. Even though its not the same with modern games, Christmas is a great time to play some old favorites again.

Thanks for all comments and emails this year. See you in 2017.

Photography

One of the things I’ve been looking into recently is a way of getting better quality photos of my consoles in my collection.
The main concern is having a consistant plain white background.
I think I’ve found a cheap solution.

I’m using a white blackout rollerblind to make a clean “sweeping” background. The lights are a pair of LED wallmount flood lights. The effect looks quite good and was a lot cheaper than some of the starter photography setup kits on eBay.
