Ohhhh, you have a repo of this! Picking one up when I get a case.

Edit: if it's non socketed, does it fit in an untrimmed case?

Nope. It's actually perfectly flush with the face of a standard case. You could therefor cut a perfect hole and the chip would be flush with the surface. That's what I'm about to do with mine!

It's the program that Nintendo used to test the DMGs before they went out.
It test the LCD, buttons, speaker, RAM and sound chip. Very handy for modders!

edit: btw kitsch, would you also program eproms with requested code? Seems like Pixelh8's free soft is asking for it. DEATH RAY FTW! big_smile
