Re: Brokon: CPS1 Three Wonders.

most likely, the battery on the top of the C board is dead, so the does the game. You can check its voltage by using a multimeter. Anyway, you will have to get it "desuicided". ie the battery removed, a "suicide fix mod" and some eproms reburned with the proper version of the program roms. I agree ...

Re: SF2 HF CPS1 Jamma missing certain sound effects

Since you're missing only some of the sound effects I would say that unlabelled eprom is the likely cause. There might be some corruption due to exposure to direct sun light. Roms 18 and 19 contain the sound effects. 19 is the unlabelled one. Get someone to verify this rom against the same from the ...

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

I guess I have an early a-board then. With this fix the volume does not reset to max anymore :)

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

Checked everything again. Guess the CMOS memory in the TC9185P is just broken... Anyone got a spare perhaps?

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

Hi idc, thanks, have cleaned the whole board already but will give those Toshiba ICs another thorough clean. Had also replaced the super cap. The 1st Toshiba IC(don't know the part from the top of my head) does get power from the super cap.

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

Bump, I also have the same issue. Did anyone find a fix?

Have tried the volume reset by holding down the button and even replaced the super cap on the a-board.
