Sometimes I find that some carts don't work when pushed all the way in. This is very true for the EMS carts. What I do is push the cart all the way in, turn the game on and push the cart as far up as I can until it's stopped by the on switch. The "Nintendo" logo may be a mess but it's not until after the DMG makes the "bling" noise that I attempts to boot the cart.

I absolutely love playing around the groove command. Sometimes I use a basic shuffle (8 and 4) then break out into full compound time by using a groove of 4 and 4 and I just put an H command on The C line of every phrase. It works really well using the two in separate tracks.

Another thing I love to do when I want to go double time or add Demisemiquavers (or 32nd notes for you US people) is just have the groove to 3 and 3 for simple time or 2 and 2 for compound (don't forget the H command at C).

If you got one of these it would never play in time to your music! smile

I am so in on this!

What I would do is buy a replacement standard GBC, transfer the PCB over, prosound the dud speaker board, put it in the standard case and sell it on ebay for profit.

After my first release "Full Spectrum EP" I'm back with my new release "Towards The Unknown". Thanks go out to for without it this EP would not have turned out the way it did. Everything on this release has been created using one Gameboy running LSDJ. I hope you enjoy this as much as I've enjoyed making it.

I'm in for as long as I can last. Moving to the UK might throw a spanner in the works initially though.

I just finished this mod and it sounds awesome. I was feeling adventurous (thanks jmr) and included a switch that separates the expansion audio or mixes it to the standard output with a 47k resistor or turns the expansion audio off all together.

I was wondering if there was any advancements on this? I can't wait to play around with this.

I was partly curious if it was a sign of any further problems. I've put a 1/2 speed crystal in it for now. I may use it for a GetLoFi pitch bend mod sometime in the future.

Then I try the original screen on the other PCB and it works so the problem has to be on the PCB.

Already did that as per the first post. I already know the problem is with the back PCB.
