It seems Shining Force Gaiden II actually uses 32KB SRAM.

Source is here. Only found out the Wiki may be wrong after a friend of mine hit issues testing games in MESS.

Thank you, that looks like a mistake indeed.
I added this 24 KB field on "Sat Apr 24, 2010 6:43 am". The probably reason is that I used Meka to naively confirm the save and for save size doesn't use a DB but instead it automatically adjust the .sav file to the nearest 8 KB.

Given the bug above it is a fair assumption that the chip is 32 KB, tho I don't have a scan of the board handy.

I have zero evidence and this is just a guess - but there is a small possibility that this sort of game could have e.g. 16 KB battery backed and 16 KB only for stratch memory. A board scan would help to confirm.

This would appear to be a photograph of the board.

Number of levels in Wiki
Post Posted: Mon Jan 22, 2018 3:29 pm
Hi,
I recently finished SMS Incredible Crash Dummies and I have the feeling that there are only 4 levels of difficulty (EASY, OK, HARD, VERY HARD) and not 5 * 5. May I have missed something ?

For SMS Asterix, it takes 21 levels to finish the game, but should not we also count the alternative levels between Asterix and Obelix ?

It seems in "Tournament Mode" you can play with 4 players.
Am I Wrong ?

May be searching the contributor (Bakudandan) and ask him about re-scan?

balkry, use your best judgement to edit pages, no need to ask for confirmation.

Thank you Maxim. I know I'm probably right for my remarks. But it's always a heavy responsibility to put this kind of information, because here we always try to be as accurate as possible

Sonic 2 wrong PAL only tag
Post Posted: Thu Sep 13, 2018 7:23 pm
"Games with this tag only work correctly on PAL (50Hz) systems - they fail or are glitchy on NTSC (60Hz) systems."

I have an original PAL copy of Sonic 2 and it does work perfectly with my SMS set to 60Hz, in fact it is NTSC optimized and it runs too slow on 50Hz

James Pond II Cover Variations
Post Posted: Thu Sep 20, 2018 5:10 pm
Hi, today I received a copy of James Pond II from Portugal. On the box, there are several Portuguese stickers.
It corresponds to version A of the scans we have.

http://www.smspower.org/Scans/JamesPondII-SMS-EU-A

But the box is "Made in Australia", it's an OZISOFT. In addition the cartridge is RED and the notice is just one sheet in English.

So I wondered if this version A was not finally Australian and not European as indicated ?

I attach some photos. I could do things of better quality if necessary

Is it a normal size box?

Same height, 1 or 2 millimeters less in width and 1 millimeter less in thickness. I do not have an Australian game in my collection, so I can not compare. But the inlay is smaller.

I guess it's probably Australian then.

Hey, there's an article I can't edit with an outdated Charles MacDonald link.

http://www.smspower.org/Articles/TrainersDoItYourself

Down the bottom notes, with the Super Magic Drive notes. The broken link can now be found at http://www.techno-junk.org/txt/smdtech.txt


The 512k Flashcart tutorial is a broken link here, but I can't find it on his new site. It exists on Archive.org, however.
