Re: leonardoliveira & Idc's clean decrypted roms

First time in a while that I've tried to access cps2.avalaunch.net but no response - is it only temporarily down?

Thanks

Re: In the Hunt pcb no sprites

I can't remember what the other jumper pin does so I'd be wary of moving the jumper there without checking first that its not +5 volts (which is unlikely, but better safe than sorry).

As for the flickering, that sounds like it may be a RAM issue, hard to say for sure though.

Re: In the Hunt pcb no sprites

The jumper is what you see marked as J3 - it's a black rectangular plastic enclosure with metal contacts inside, you'll see that it can bridge two of three pins. They tend to get corroded a little so power off, lift it off and push it back on a few times. You can even carefully clean the pins if you...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Very curious. Maybe some Arduino afficianados would be able to state why you had problems based on your findings? I'm guessing there is a decent Arduino messageboard out there (I've never looked).

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Very well done! :D Curious about the power supply though as have never had that issue because I power my Arduino via the USB cable plugged into my PC, however you have to remember about the current draw - obviously 1.5A wasn't enough from one of your PSUs but 4A was. Here's the specs for the Uno: ht...

@NoAffinity - sorry to repeat this question, but: Did you contact Eduardo Cruz via jammaplus? If there's a consistent problem with reviving rev -4 boards then he needs to know and can no doubt resolve the issue. He's your best bet I think given all the work that he has put into the method using the...

@NoAffinity - have you tried asking the developer, Eduardo Cruz? He has an account of this forum but also posts more elsewhere, here's his profile on Jammaplus:

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

Ahhhh, I see. I had stupidly assumed that the supercap was keeping power for all settings. My bad. I'll see if I can source a replacement then - I usually order my electronic components from Farnell or RS so hopefully they'll have something suitable. I'll open up the shell of the A board again tomor...

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

I haven't tried to replace the supercap as I was going on the assumption that if it was faulty then other settings would be lost or corrupted after powering off, and that isn't the case.

At least that's how I see it - what do you think? :)

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

I hope that nobody minds a bit of thread necromancy. :) I have an A board that, when powered off for a minute or so, kept resetting the volume back to a low volume (but not zero). I tried the "power on with volume down held in" fix, etc but no luck ....... at first. NOW though the volume level is re...

Re: Bubble Bobble Bootleg info

Does anyone happen to know if the treasure rooms and last boss are generally not supported on some/most bootlegs?
