Supercic Snes Mod
« on: March 07, 2016, 05:22 PM »
Hello, i was thinking in doing this mod on my snes, and i have a doubt about programing the PIC16F630. On sd2snes.de i can download a zip with the files to flash the chip, and i read there that i have to use the "supercic-lock.hex", but, and the other 3 files?
What do i do with the "supercic-lock.asm", "supercic-key.hex" and "supercic-key.asm" ?

Someone that already have done this can help me? I dont want to mess up =X

.asm are the source files for the code
.hex / lock is the file you need for the PIC16F630 for the SNES (what you need)
.hex / key is the file you program if you make a cic clone for a cartridge

You only need the .hex file to programm the PIC , the .asm is the source code that when compiled produces the .hex file
It is a good idea to open the .asm with notepad for example, there are instructions in there - it's just a text file.

bortie4938's boards is what I use as well, got them directly from him though... else you can get all the parts needed to make your own from Bad_Ad84: http://assemblergames.com/l/threads/for-sale-modding-parts-chips-etc.39971/

bortie4938's work is available here, there are links in the projects that lead to OSHPARK for pcb orders: https://github.com/borti4938/Switchless-Mods and https://github.com/borti4938/SNES-AddOn-PCBs

and here are the pcbs: https://oshpark.com/profiles/borti4938

thanks guys, i know about the kit from bad_ad84, this pcb i didnt know about, but both for me will take too much and will get a lot expensive to get it, because i'm on brazil, its easy for me buy the parts here and find someone to flash the chip, but thanks guys, help me a lot!

ofcourse, building your own is certainly doable and cheaper, that's what I did before all the fancy pcbs:
