Change RAM, CRAM from addon

Post by cloudstrifer » Wed Sep 22, 2021 2:41 pm

Hi, I like to know if there is some way to change RAM, CRAM and execute complex functions through addon on Sega Genesis. ​

My initial project will be a cheat device, someone can help me?

Cartslot is slave only with no means to do bus mastering (it cannot initiate writes to the console, only receive them) so you'll need software help. One way is to hijack frame interrupt, do your thing in it and then run the original handler, but it might break timing sensitive games.

Taking ownership of an exception and execute a program is my first thought.

I believe Everdrive does save states... some spying work there maybe...
HELP. Spanish TVs are brain washing people to be hostile to me.
