Download Super Mario World 64 for SMD . It doesn't seem to work on the SMD or SMD+, I wish it did. All I get is a solid blue screen :cry: You have to use the crack at the top of the page. It helps to read the whole thread and not just bits and pieces. :wink: Turns out I was patching the rom wrong :...

Not yet, but I must be doing something wrong though..How do I go at installing something like io.dll (on windows xp) for example?...

I just figured SMDutil is the way to go when it comes to the SMD no?..

Quick question, is there a SMDutil for dummies? ("how to")..I ask because I just can't seem to be able to make it work with my Super Magic Drive parallel port at all...

I'd like to dump the SMD "Magic Driver V-1" bios that I have, with it...

Got a hold of a FFE floppy Drive to finally test my SMD. The FDD tries to read the floppys with little success, and after that all I get is a "DISK ERROR" on screen. I took the actual drive apart and tested it on my PC and works fine so, the SMD must be at fault or, is there any disk incompatibiliti...

So you have your answer ;) A red screen means a checksum error which is typical when bank switch doesn't work...
So, are you saying the Bios is at fault?.. It only happens with that game only though.

Thanks!

what happen if you plug a cart? The "CARD" number changes acording to the cartridge size (2M/4M/8M). And I'm able to play the game just fine if "RUN IC CARD" is selected. Larger games such as Sreet Fighter II change the number to "CARD 8" for example. Is Super Street Fighter II "the new challengers...

Hmmm. I'll try cleaning it a little more.

Another quick question. Why is that menu showing "CARD 2M" when there isn't any cartridge in the slot?.

Sorry about the pic. Those IC's are KM44C1000's (4bit D Rams each) :? .

I covered the window just in case.

I'm just assuming its a 16M unit because there was a huge "16M" sticker on the bottom, but I would like to confirm it...

Also, I'd definitely love to share it, but I guess I can't for now since I don't even have a parallel port cable neither a floppy drive :( ....

Hi!.. I just recently became the proud owner of a SMD that I found in the wild. I must confess that I don't really know much about this device other than the basics. While doing some research I found this great thread, with awesome info and the amazing work done by you guys. I have a question though...
