Seems to work fine- at least the on-screen mic level seems to correspond to whatever sound is being made, I have no idea if it's supposed to be doing anything beyond that.

Does the expansion cartridge have a name apart from the cartridge code "DS-H353"? Something like "Expansion Cartridge 1: Sun Myung Moon's Favorite Hymns"?

Edit: Based on the picture that MLX sent me, the DS-H353 expansion cartridge's title is "애창곡 베스트 40" (The Best 40 Songs).

Crystal Mines Hangul: 크리스탈 특공대 (Haitai Supercom)

->File<-

I couldn't get a constant ROM dump from the cartridge so I had to write a script that would weight each byte from an array of dumps and write the most common one to the output. Hence the [f1] tag. Thanks to NewRisingSun for checking the ROM banks.

The Korean name for Crystal Mines is 크리스탈 특공대, for those like me who like to organize Asian games in their native writing systems.

Brilliant Com Cocoma Pack 1 (EduBank Corp)

->File<-

Brilliant Com Cocoma Pack 2 (EduBank Corp)

->File<-

These two games require the latest custom Nintendulator mapper pack to operate.

You can read about EduBank Corporation on the wiki.

All credits to lidnariq and NewRisingSun for either dumping, emulating the games or finding the EduBank informations.

Old thread, but was Tiny Toon 6 broken on cartridge or is it a messed up ROM?

It's either an emulation problem or the ROM is bad. I do remember the text displaying on hardware. I need to check.

EDIT: Oh wait I thought you meant the text displaying problem of Tiny Toon 6.
The ROM in the first post is a poor mapper hack by Ka Sheng. The game will crash if you don't skip the cutscenes. I'm guessing it's due to it being incompletly hacked or security checks left behind that fail.

As MLX pointed out, there are two issues here:
  • The original J.Y. Company version of Tiny Toon Adventures 6 does not display the initial lines "Baabs is dreaming about becoming an actress. She is daydreaming that she has great courage, intelligence and power." in most emulators, including Nintendulator-NRS. Because these lines are displayed in BizHawk, and because the problem also appears in the version of the game on the JY-119 multicart, I am certain the problem is due to emulation, not due to a bad ROM image. I will investigate this issue.
  • The Kasheng version is a Mapper 4 hack and does display these lines in any emulator, but crashes after these two lines. This is most likely a result of incomplete mapper hacking, as MLX wrote.

Edit: Identified and corrected the problem. I am not posting a new build of Nintendulator-NRS just for this, but its next release, whenever it will be, will properly display all text in the J.Y. Company version of Tiny Toon Adventures 6.

(For those who care about the reason: Tiny Toon Adventures 6 maps CHR-ROM into the address space of the nametable at $2800-$2BFF, yet still writes nametable data there, which will be displayed correctly because that nametable in turn is mirrored elsewhere. (Don't you just love the J.Y. Mapper hardware?) This works on real hardware, because the CHR-ROM is only mapped into nametable address space during PPU read accesses, not during PPU write accesses. Most emulators do not make that distinction however, and thus the text is written into CHR-ROM, which of course is not writable, and thus not written at all.)
