Worked out basic read/write access to the real-time clock found on the Animal Forest cartridge, and quite possibly others. It should be enough data to allow basic emulation of the feature.

Yeah, could be flushed out a lot.

Whoa, that old N64 game had a real time clock built into the cartridge?

Did the hardware look different to reflect the different internal components or...?

Title: All in a day's work.
According to Zoinkity's documentation, PIF command 6 can be used to detect the presence of the RTC.

Well, yeah it has a clock. DnM was a 64DD->Cart conversion, and they absolutely needed the real-time clock. A few 64DD conversions got carry-over goods as a result, like the built-in modem on that shogi game. Command and Conquer can use the mouse. Would love to get keyboard support into a homebrew title ;*)

Not sure if that's the same one from the 64DD though, as I don't have a 747 to hock for one. You'd have to poke one to find out. Could explain the mystery register...
