Genjin Collection (Japan) not working...
« on: August 03, 2015, 12:57 PM »
GB Genjin (Bonk's Adventure), GB Genjin 2, and Genjin Land all work. However, the 3-in-1 Gengin Collection is broken. When I boot the game, it reloads when I make a selection. Not a huge deal since the three included games are playable on their own.

Does "Genjin Collection (Japan).gb" a standard bankswitvh ROM or does it use some wierd licensed multicart mapper? Also is there a list of incompatible GBED ROMs?

Sounds like the Mortal Kombat 1 & 2 combination cartridge.  It fails in the same way because of the unusual way it uses the MBC1 chip.

It's really not that big of a deal if licensed multicarts don't work (except the menu) as long as ROMs are available for the games individually. I guess the game menu could be though of as a custom boot loader which swaps out individual games on different banks.

But games like the 2-in-1 Mario / Duck Hunt et al mostly work on N8 so go fig...
