View Full Version : Problem with Super Wild Card
05-12-2012, 05:19 PM
I was at a Garagesale today and bought a Super Wild Card for my SNES!!
It starts and i can get into the menu but as soon as I want to start a game from disk, the disk loading progress is shown, but after that I get a black screen.
Since I dissasemble a lot, but never has a piece of these!!! I was stuck at one point!! There is something missing between the Super Wild Card and the SNES on the Adaptor!! I was wondering if anybody could help me!!!
Here is a picture of the part, i mean!
on far left side!! Would be very thankful for help

Get rid of that battery. It leaked. :\
And that trace is intentionally missing a trace. Some ignorant peasant decided to solder a wire on it then changed mind.
You can simply make the numbers on the adaptor board match that printed on the Wild Card board. You can also solder a piece of wire there and not care about the way it's inserted.
But for the device's sake, get rid of that leaked battery.

Okay I got rid of the battery and just soldered a cable as a bridge!!ar
WORKS, well kind of!! Starts the games from disk now!! BUT... ;-)
Letīs say i want to play Star Fox through the Wild Card, it wonīt work!!! other games like Zelda will work and i can copy them to disk!!
Star Fox has the outer pins on the cartridge right where i made the bridge!!
Any Idea if there needs to be a resistor or something like that???

If I remember correctly, some (most or all?) copiers won't play some special chip games like superfx even using a real cartridge with it. In order to play those, you would need to take the copier off and plug the cartridge directly into the snes. They certainly won't load from a disk since no copiers support superfx.

A Friend of Mine Stopped by just a few minutes ago and we checked if his diskettes would run in my copystation!!
And they work just fine!!
But have some trouble with the diskettes that came with my thing!! but they can you just be crappy disks!

The copier lays it's internal registers around the same memory region the Star Fox cartridge maps the FX communication registers. The I/O conflict prevents both from working correctly.
You will notice that games which use simpler expansion chips such as DSP1 (Mario Kart) might work just fine. Just more complex chips like FX, SA-1 and S-DD won't work at all with the copier connected.
It has nothing to do with the extended connector. Some versions of Starfox don't even need the extended pins at all (the cart have them but they're not connected to anything internally).
