Nintendo Super FX 2? Any more info about this nice set-up you can tell us? An incredible find among finds I see.
The Super Nintendo SFX2+ development system.
SFX2+ was Sculptured Software Inc.'s advanced development system for the Super Nintendo. SFX2+ has basic capabilities such as software breakpoints and Cartridge emulation. SFX2+ is self contained in the PC. No PIC interface card or external SNES is required. The SFX2+ fits in a slot within a PC. SFX2+ is a high-speed development platform for the Super Nintendo. DSP, mode 21, mode 20 and advance mode 20 are all supported. SFX2+ includes a AV-SNES and four megabytes of emulation ROM (SRAM).
This unit has been modified to provide an environment for SFX1 and SFX2 development.
A lot of things have gone through my mind, as it's fragile, and handmade.
So before I attempt to install it in a working pc, I would need a good
reason to risk using it.
There's a lot of loose SFX 2 ends. Among them is of course Starfox 2.
I've heard of people making Yoshi 2 carts into Starfox 2 carts.
So before I try to hook it up, does anyone have Starfox 2 code for me to run an play around with?
I assume I would need source (yes, feel free to laugh).
Oh yeah, here's some porn for you nintendo fans.
Thats beautiful, you said handmade, hmm... hand make your own to play with and keepthis one pristine :P

That 3x3 SNES square would surely make Ben Heck soil himself. Just think of the possibilities.
so did the comp that star fox 2 leak from use this board?
...Nice pics, thanks for sharing, I love homemade pcb work :)
now you made me drool all over myself.
you lucky man.
just awesome man.
This game will make you a sociopath
Nice man, didn't Argonaut have something to do with SFX?
wow thats an awesome find you got there!! thx for posting the pics
Wait, where's the Super FX2? It doesn't sound or look as if it has one. Hidden under the SNES?
If it does have one, it's possible this was for Dirt Trax FX (by Sculptured)
Also, you certainly don't need the Star Fox 2 source to play, a de-interleaved headerless ROM will probably work.
Also, Super FX 2 essentially is a Super FX 1, only difference is how much ROM they can address. Since SFOX2 is 8M, you can use a SFX1 chip set to the high speed mode.

not from what i read, they said the guy who stole it got caught and arrested pretty fast. Sites that have talked about it and even a faq on it state that it was compiled from a computre that use to belong to agranougt. Not only that, but wasn't the ces cart in english already?Originally Posted by ASSEMbler
is it possible to clean drool from a keyboard?
Be Strange. Be Odd. Just BEAN.
nothing to say already been said before other than i seen a sf2 fake once before and this isn't it at all.
i think we have a slight misconception here.
this devkit was called sfx/sfx2, but that doesnt necessarily mean that it is related to the super fx in any way.
the manual copyright date indicates it was called sfx before the super fx appeared.
its working title was mario chip(as indicated on most retail starfox pcbs).
it was also called gsu (for Graphic Support processing Unit) internally.
the specs you posted dont mention anything like that.
i dont think the name super fx popped up before 1993.
what you can see on the picture is the dram (for rom emulation), a dsp1 and one of the ppus with its working ram. that means the cpu, wram, ppu2, spc, sound dsp and sound ram must be located below the small add-on board.
it may be possible that the super fx hides under that board or that you could plug another board in to add super fx support, but i somehow doubt you could run super fx games on it as it is.
a look "under the hood" would be nice. ;)
oh, and the starfox 2 picture you posted isnt from the original game. i made that logo for the english translation patch by gideon zhi and me, because i thought the original logo looked quite ugly.
