INES Mapper 029

This mapper was allocated on 15-nov-2013 to implement some homebrew games, including Glider. FCEUX acquired support on r3029.

The example board in question was marked as follows: "Sealie Computing", "RET-CUFROM revD", "2/29/08"

The board includes 4x banks worth of full 8KB CHR ram, and 8x 16KB PRG banks.

It is hard-wired for vertical mirroring, and contains 8KB of WRAM mounted in the usual place. There is no battery, but pads are present and suitable for such a purpose if anyone were so inclined. There are no bus conflicts.

The board contains logic designed for reprogramming from a CopyNES. If EXP0 and R/W go low, /WR reaches the flash ROM. When EXP0 is high, the internal bankswitching register gets accessed.

 Registers:
 ---------------------------
 
 Range,Mask:   $8000-FFFF, $8000
 
   $8000:  [...P PPCC]
     C = CHR RAM bank
     P = PRG ROM bank
 
 PRG Setup:
 ---------------------------
      $8000   $A000   $C000   $E000  
     +-------------------------------+
     |     $8000     |     { -1}     |
     +---------------+---------------+
 
 CHR Setup:

Here's a schematic of the board:
