Trying to get a system 7 mpu booting, and I'm getting various 'bad RAM' readings.
Leon's test rom locks the leds on immediately, but does not display 1,2, or 3 (which according to http://pinball.flippers.info/system6repairpart4.asp it should). Two leds no flashes indicates the IC13 RAM is bad.
Andre's test rom blinks on 2 and 3, signifying that IC16 and IC19 are bad. Doesn't blink on 1 (IC13).
Usually I find these tests pretty good on system 3-6 games, but I've never had a system 7 ram issue before. My confusion lies in the fact that IC13 and IC16 are different on system 3-6 vs system 7. on 3-6 they're the lower halves of the first 255 bytes of ram. on system 7 they each span the whole 255 bytes but each are only four bits. Both these test roms claim to work for system 3-7, so how can you tell which RAM on a system 7 is actually bad? It seems like if it just scans the full bytes (like it would for system 3-6) then it wouldn't know which chip it was that caused the error? A look at the source code for Andre's seems to read like it only scans full bytes, and thus won't produce accurate results on a system 7, but I may be misunderstanding...
Can anyone confirm how to read these?
Would marco's rom work better? I've never used it
Is the system 7 self test more reliable than the system 3-6?
