Flashing a Cart

Hello,

I created one of the tutorial games from the 20 minute tutorial videos and wanted to test it on a real system, but I don't know how to put the game on the cartridge. I have tried flashing a cart with the thing hooked up with the flash cart button, but I still up playing troll burner when I use the cartridge in the system. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you install the flasher driver, first? You can install it from your nesmaker_4_1_0\Flasher\INL_KazzoFlasherDriverPackage\ folder (the installDrriver exe)

If still doesn't work, and maybe you have the mini flasher model, like this one:

You could try download this flasher folder https://www.dropbox.com/s/oj2n2wvach8dgik/Flasher.zip?dl=0 Unzip it and replace your original flasher folder.

Finally, in NESMaker "Make Cart".

I have done everything you suggested, but when I put the cart in the nes (I have the original model if you are wondering) all I get is a white screen. Any ideas?

Did you plug correctly the cart in the mini kazoo? (the label side of the cartridge facing the side where there is the usb plug)
What model do you have? the mini one (like the photo) or the other older one?

Ok you have the mini one.
Did you replace the NESMaker\flasher\ folder with the one from here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oj2n2wvach8dgik/Flasher.zip?dl=0 ?
(rename your old folder and use the one in the zip file, instead)

I am in the same boat as the original poster and the dropbox link is expired / missing, can you please provide this folder again?

Awesome. Thanks. The Make Cart button won't launch it for some reason, but at least from the command line I can write to the cart!

I checked quickly...
It seems like the subfolder "Flasher\inl-retro-progdump-master" shoud be named "Flasher\INL-retro-progdump_map30". So try to rename it before try again.

Unfortunately, even renamed it doesn’t work from the button. But if I launch the flashcart.bat file manually it works fine.

Will do some tests tomorrow... I will try fixing that for you.
It'd be better if you can do that directly from the button ;)

I wouldn't worry about it. I don't mind using the command line, and even though I'm new I see how much you contribute around here - your skills are better focused elsewhere. :)

Bump! I need it too! Help!

Have you tried this: http://nesmakers.com/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=2633
(general rule: always make backups of your folder before any modification)
