Hacking Devil Riders for Free Play

Here are some of my notes from adding a "Free Play" option to Devil Riders.

If you read my notes on Farfalla, this is a continuation of that effort.

ROM Layout (2 x 2764)

This is almost identical to Farfalla and Blackbelt. Two 2764 ROMs, with nothing in Rom1 Bank4 (0x6000). By replacing Rom1 Bank4 with my own image data, containing the Free Play revisions to the game, and some patches that should look very familiar by now, Devil Riders is done and ready for testing.


Disables "Coin Meter" check
