Many PAL dumps and more
Post Posted: Sun Sep 24, 2023 12:52 am
Hi everyone,

Browsing through my HDD I found many unreleased dumps I made for Sega hardware:
- Game Gear Pro Action Replay ROM: there was no dump available to this day, probably cause you need to desolder the cart slot. This is v1.01, the only one I have ever seen.
- Game Gear Pro Action Replay PALCE20V8
- Game Gear Codemasters mapper GAL16V8 (found in Micromachines and more)
- Master System Pro Action Replay PALCE20V8
- Saturn Pro Action Replay PALCE20V8
- Saturn Universal V3 modchip PALCE16V8
- Saturn Universal V3 modchip PIC16C54C

The PLD dumps will be hosted over at the PLD archive (jammarcade) along with pictures, the ROM will be submitted to MAME.

P.S.: Also found the PALCE20V8 for the NES Pro Action Replay
P.P.S: The Saturn modchip I have fully reproduced

*ADMIN* downsized the non-Sega 8-bit photos and reattached them.

Nice! Are you able to direct link us to the GG and SMS PARs so we can archive them here?

Could we get a photo of the back side of those PCBs?

I'm sorry I forgot to take pictures of the back, I should have I know.

I really appreciate the dumps by the way. Maybe one day I'll get enough time to take mine open and lay out the schematic in KiCAD and make a clone for fun. :)

I have actullay hand-drawn the schematics for all of them.
Only the MS one I made in KiCad, trying to sell a few to recoup my costs.

Making your own is really worth it when you see the price of OG devices.

Oh wow, didn't know you did that work already. I have a genuine MS one already, but would be nice to make another one as it's not going to work forever.

Well, you can replace/reprogram any part of it now. :)
