Konami VRC7 Mapper Support Package
« on: September 01, 2015, 04:15 PM »
Hello guys,

after some warm-up time now, here is my next Everdrive N8 mapper: Konami VRC7 support.

This is supported by 2 games: the Famicom version of "Tiny Toons 2" and of course "Lagrange Point".

Before everyone gasps now: this initial version supports only the mapper functionality, not the additional FM sound channels... yet. ;-)

So, it is good enough to play the games, but the full sound functionality will take me some time.

Disclaimer: I guarantee no delivery date or schedule for any kind of updates on this mapper. It is done when it is done, and this largely depends on my interest and availability of free time. ;-)

http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=01897062818200363928

Installation: unzip the archive, replace "MAPROUT.BIN" in EDFC directory, and copy "085.RBF" to EDFC/MAPS.

Finally: enjoy! ;-)

BR,

Necronomfive

Thanks for sharing this. Will it support Lagrange Point with the translation patch applied?

Yes, just tested it.

Necronomfive, thank you for your great work on the NES mappers.

Woah, awesome.

I hate to sound like one of "those guys", but are you considering tackling the MMC5?

I hate to sound like that guy too...but any chance for mapper 037 (Super Mario/Tetris/World Cup) and 105 (Nintendo World Championship) working? Looks like those are the last two Nintendo mappers still unsupported by the N8.

Hi, in case you don't see my post in the other thread, do you have any way for people to donate money as thanks/incentive for more mappers? Your work is highly appreciated and I'd like to show my appreciation!

I have the Lagrange Point, if you need any help to compare the audio between the original cartridge and your everdrive maper, just send the word :)

Hi everybody,

thanks for the feedback so far!

I have started to implement first FM functions, but as I indicated, this will take a longer time to develop and debug. I want to make my implementation as close as possible to the real chip.

Since I am leaving now for 2 weeks vacation, my activities will stop during this period.

On a general note: I really appreciate the feedback and gesture, but my activities here are just for my own self-motivated hobby purpose, and I want to keep it this way.

But again: I really appreciate the warm feedback, and it's of course always a nice feeling when something you do for yourself is also useful for other people. ;-)

Best regards,

Necronomfive

Really, really cool Necronomfive!

For the purpose on spreading knowledge how to handle implementation of new mappers and custom sound chips, could you possible, if you ever find time for it, write some documentation on the basics? I'm sure it would be a nice read for both me and any other fellow interested developer!

Also, would it be possible for you to host your code under some version control?

Thanks for your great work!

I haven't got this installed on my card yet, but looks like this post is getting its props.

You think tackling FDS would be possible?

[EDIT] Linked to THIS THREAD. If there are any updates to the mapper, please post there.
