The Fushigi no Dungeon games are notable for automatically saving to battery RAM after every action the player performs, so I'm inclined to suspect a SRAM mapping problem, although a CPU bug is also possible.


Probably the former, it does this:

818103 lda #$53
818105 sta $b36000
818109 lda #$54
81810b sta $b36001

MESS driver masking seems to apply at every 0x10000 (i.e. it writes at 0xb06000-0xb16000-0xb26000 and 0xb36000) ... BSNES only writes at 0xb36000 (plus it has a completely different mapped memory in there). Cart mode is 21 iirc. Ideas?
