Starfox Overclocked

Recommended Posts

What is it?

Looks just like an US cartridge put on a japanese SNES using an adapter...

I believe he/she overclocked the hardware on the cartridge to allow the game to run at a somewhat faster framerate, though I'm not entirely sure. In any case the red cartridge is nice, :lol:

EDIT - :welcome: to SF-O, Drakon! ^_^

Ok, did a bit of research.

You nailed it crazy, he soldered a Super FX 2 chip on the board to replace the original Super FX one. Since Mk. 2 runs at ~27MHz and Mk. one only at 21, it seems to run faster.

Oh right Drakon, now that you edited your first post, it's clearer... :D

EDIT 2:

Oh and welcome on StarFox-Online by the way! ;)

Ahh, gotcha ^_^

And I actually got something right! HAPPY, I AM, SO MUCH!

Haha. Actually I soldered a starfox rom chip (stores the game data) onto a super fx 2 cartridge. That catridge used to be doom. The super fx 2 normally goes at 21.5 mhz. I had to modify the cartridge and add my own clock circuit to get it going at a higher speed. The higher speed makes the game much smoother with much less slowdown. It also runs a bit faster.

Interesting... Some one is handy with technology. And wires.

yes all three chips (mario chip, super fx 1, super fx 2) are fully compatible with each other. They're even pin compatible. I have starfox 1 running on all three different superfx chips

All three chips the clock input is the same pin I assume the rest of the pins are the same too
