Can I flash mapper 30 cart?

I have programmer and cart from infiniteneslives NESmaker kit. I wonder can I run Lizard with it?

Developer

Lizard requires mapper 34 (512k BNROM). I don't know if your NESMaker cartridge can be reconfigured for mapper 34 instead of mapper 30, but it can't run on mapper 30.

Thanks for clarification. I'm just starting to get into NES game dev and heard BNROM couple of times. Where do you get them? InfinitNESlives show - COMING SOON development complete.

Developer

InfiniteNESLives has definitely made a mapper 34 board. It's what the Lizard cartridges are built on.

I don't know if mapper 34 boards are offered for sale, but you can e-mail them to ask. The "coming soon" statement may be out of date. Otherwise you can run Lizard on a PowerPak, or an Everdrive N8, or there are other options like ReproX, but if you want something you can program easily with the flasher you got for NESMaker, you'll probably need a flashable board from InfiniteNESLives.

Thanks! That's another reason to get Everdrive.

@nezvers I assume you have that old-type KAZZO board? I got that newer type INL program dumper v2.0 and 2.1, but can't get to flash mapper 30 games. Are you able?
