Re: Naomi multi cart

His multi-carts are a horrible bodge - 3V chips running on a 5V rail, hot-glue etc....

Someone over on AP is working on a real Naomi multi-cart (not Darksoft) so save your money and use net-boot or CF-reader for now....

Re: 100 Yen coin substitute

I 3D printed a dummy coin mech and installed that on the Vewlix's so any coin with a smaller diameter than 50p will work (50p's get stuck on the coin switch wire).

My other cab has a 928 token mech and some "MAME" tokens (which are about the same size as a Quarter)....

Re: EX Board not powering up

it will have lost its cmos settings so you'll have to guess what some of them were, hopefully no custom setting have been lost.

I've done something like that - pulled the pins out then superglued a piece of plastic like a chunk of CD case into the slot.

Re: CPS2 A Board Fried?

Do what I do - put a blob of solder across to bridge top & bottom pins together where the key goes, works perfectly and isn't going to drop out.

Re: Brand spanking new Vewlix Diamond Blacks

Theres been a few nice neo geo cabs pop up on yaj over the last few weeks. And some status's. If you can get some decent metal cased cabs to fill the container they're easier to repair & respray than plastic/fiberglass ones.

Re: EX Board not powering up

Check the cmos battery - I got caught out the other day with a PC that wouldn't power up, spent ages checking stuff to find the CR2032 was flat, replaced it with a new one and it fired up first time.
