I guess this is some sort of clone? Not uncommon.
(if it works then all's ok unless you're a collector i suppose)
What the fuck is this?
My snes definitely doesn't look like that.
lol that's bad and cool at the same time
..seems like a old kind of clone that actually works? ...I wonder if it play Super FX games normally too..
A second generation SNES right? Looks like someone mod it or maybe is a clone as previously mentioned, but I wonder what kind of mod is this.. batteries inside a snes thats uncommon.
It seemed so strange to me as well. I should add that the console had what looked like an original SNSP-CPU-01 board in it, but I can't really understand what the added modification is for.
I'm wondering if it's a toggle for 50/60Hz mode, because in the side of the image there's a small switch. Or else perhaps it could be part of a copier, or else a clone, but I don't see why a clone would require batteries...
Maybe the battery is related to the clone's EPROM? or the clone uses it to save data, other than using the cartridge's batteries ?
Can you get more pics?
Really weird what mod this is uses batteries
I'll ask him to take some more pics.
Imgur album for those interested
There's nothing special about the motherboard itself, as I've mentioned earlier it looks original.
Hardwired alkaline batteries... LOL.
No idea what that is but the idea of soldering in alkaline batteries rather than using clips is just ridiculous.
Can your friend get some properly oriented, non-potato pictures of the chips? I know the silkscreening on the top is mostly sanded off but we might still be able to discern something from them provided good pictures. The bottom row of text isn't giving me anything in Google.
Maybe even a non-potato video?
I'll see what he can do, good sir. Unfortunately, he only has his phone camera at hand, but he should still be able to get some nice close up shots of the chips.
It really is a strange sort of modification, isn't it? You would think that whoever did this had some sort of goal in mind.
I'm half wondering if this was some just started attempt at making the SNES into a portable that was given up on, reassembled, and just sold off as is. Of course, I'm probably totally wrong, but Googling has failed me so eat my shot in the dark.
this is very perplexing i like it, and im very curious on what it does.
Close up of the chips!
Can't help but notice the "killer" printing in the top left corner of the board.
It looks like one of those homemade soldering project kits.
So... what does it do when he tries to turn it on?
With a cart in?
Without a cart?
OK, I am following this thread. I really want to know more about this. There has to be more information about this mod, plus the battery really seems interesting.
Is this soldered onto the mainboard? If so, where?
