Here's a simple demo that circumvents the NTSC 7800 encryption check.

Source code can be found here:


Other things you might need for developing 7800 games, like picklock.bin
which is the 4K section of the 7800 dev cart which needs to be included, and
maria.h which is a header file for the maria chip can be found here:


I've also attached backdoor.a78 which is a version of the binary that runs
in Dan Boris's v7800 emulator.

So for all practical purposes, the 7800 is now an *open* platform.  I'm
looking forward to seeing some interesting new games for it!
