Myself and a fellow arcade collector have teamed up again to work on a reproduction Vs. Dr.Mario daughterboard for the Nintendo Vs. system.

There were additional complexities to this PCB because it uses a Nintendo custom MMC1 chip, which are not easy to find, and there are no schematics of this board so it was a case of tracking down an original PCB, at some expense, and mapping out all the pinouts. The great thing is that this PCB will be a lot less than an original PCB, so it makes it cheap and more available for the people that would love to own it.

This is the circuit diagram my partner on this project has produced:

Myself and a fellow arcade collector have started working on a reproduction daughterboard for the Nintendo Vs. system which will allow Vs. Castlevania or Vs. Top Gun to run on a dual (Red Tent) or single standalone system.

These daughterboards are very hard to find and can be quite expenisve to buy, so we believe this is a good alternative. We are also looking at the possibility of making another board for Vs. Dr.Mario, but this has some additional complexities we need to work through.

Today I’ve been testing out a rom mod for Balloon Fight on the Nintendo Vs. system to see if it is possible to run the game on different PPU’s on each side of the board, and to check if the rom mod works on original hardware:
