What’s your Satellaview’s Serial?

(Excuse the crappy picture.)

Just the other day Callis showed me an upcoming addition to the domain, the Console Serial Database.

This is currently going through a testing phase. I presume the goal is to use the collected serials to further research things such as slight hardware tweaks or whatnot, but don’t quote me on that.

Anyhow, the important thing is, it accepts Satellaview serials! These are located at the bottom of the base hardware much like it would be on a SNES or SFC.

Is anyone willing to submit their’s? I’ve already submitted some serials, myself – two from loose bases.


Yet another donation reminder.

I would like to remind everyone that I don’t necessarily enjoy blowing all my money on 8M Packs when my income level is probably lower than the average viewer of this site. 🙁

New ROM Dumps, and how a board game can blow my mind.

“Sometimes we do awful things in our lives, even if we don’t know it. Sometimes the only proof that we’ve made mistakes – terrible mistakes the UNIVERSE ITSELF punishes us for – is that we look around and find we’re playing…Monopoly.”

Thanks to TVTropes for the quote.

More Bakusho Mondai radio programming.

Ok, so an update that isn’t about BS-X Project!


A while back on NND, some more episodes of “Bakusho Mondai no Shirikon Chounaikai” were uploaded. I was so caught up in BS-X Project that I haven’t gotten around to taking a close look at these yet.
I’ll toss these up now.
Interestingly enough, they’re actually labeled in terms of episode number. These are marked as episodes 3 and 4 respectively. 3 is dated April 20th, 1996. 4 is marked the week afterwards, April 27th.
Another neat thing about them is that these encodes also include the preceeding and following Satellaview game ads! In particular, episode 3 has a BS Fuurai no Shiren ad at the end!

Luigiblood’s been regularly posting video logs of BS-X Project discoveries on Youtube!

Let me toss some of them this blog entry.

New ROM Dumps: BS-X Shooting! + Extras

Amidst all the BS-X Project news (Download v002 today!) it’s almost been tough to keep up with the “Schedule”, per se. Regardless, I promised to have the following ROM up on my birthday, which is, well, November 4th!

This ROM is probably the worst-kept secret of the blog since around May or so, when it was initially obtained. It’s also, in my opinion, one of the best releases since Konae-chan no DokiDoki Pengin Kazoku, and a nice recovery of what we’ve only had video of before.

Can you guess what it is? Well, if you’ve checked some of the comments I made or checked what I was doing around Youtube, it should be easy to guess, actually: Read the rest of this entry »
