Konami game protections
This page was last modified 19:39, 16 November 2017 by NYYRIKKI. Based on work by Manuel and Rderooy and others.

Konami had some simple protections in their ROM games that prevented them running from RAM.

Here is list of 8KB-32KB Konami ROM games and how to remove the protections from them. This might be required in order to load the games with certain ROM-loader programs.

Change the addresses content in mentioned (HEX) offsets to 0 in game ROM to disable protections (Exception in Konami’s Golf)
