Re: Ghosts n Goblins outputs no sound on Astro City

People on the net, including us, have different opinions about this board's -5v and Astro city's -5v line. Maybe all cases exist in this world. In any case my buyer shall return the board to me and have a full refund.

Re: Mega Drive RGB Cable Resistor questions

I had the same issue with the Sigma Raijin RGB scart in the past but when tried resistors from 1 to 30 ohms, image was loosing detail and had some very bright pcbs like SFIII with severe colour bleed. In my case those were pull down resistors though, so lessening resistance seemed to have the ground...

Re: Ghosts n Goblins outputs no sound on Astro City

madaxl77 proceeded and claimed through Paypal 100 euros in order to keep the board. I hope he tries to fix his system soon and finds out that the board is working like a champ, because Paypal has now restricted my account :( He may then close the case and set me free... This was my selling thread ht...

Ghosts n Goblins outputs no sound on Astro City

A few days ago I sold my Ghosts n Goblins board to madaxl77 from Italy. Before he buys it, he requested a video of the board working so I made him a quick one with my phone. Everything was working perfectly including sound. When madaxl77 received the board he sent me immediately a mail about his com...

Re: Mega Drive RGB Cable Resistor questions

Really interesting mod but noone seems to know the resistor value you are asking. My Pal Megadrive has annoying jailbars when outputing RGB with c-sync

Re: CPS2 battery life and replacement

Flux is supposed to keep oxygen away from the solder, forming a film on top of the melted solder. That allows the solder to "wash" over the other metals and that will give you a proper metallic bond. Without flux oxygen will reach the hot surfaces, making them oxidize and consequently weakening any...

Re: CPS2 battery life and replacement

Thanks for the info never thought to practice soldering first good tip will do. I strongly suggest watching as many tutorials and "basics of soldering" videos as you can, before and during practicing. Wish I had taken this approach years ago, been poorly to mediocre'ly soldering for years, just got...

Re: Naomi 2 & Namco 256 super capacitor leak or possible leak

Yesterday I finally got the Capcom I/O and powered on Naomi 2 successfully. I put a fresh battery but left it without a super capacitor. Holds clock settings fine. Note: Naomi 2 in order not to freeze needs a stable 5v. Had to adjust my PSU at a 5.30 without a PCB connected. If I keep this voltage s...

I received my new Tekken 5 Dark Resurection Nanco 256 and turned it into pieces to clean all components inside and inspect it as I do with all my new pcbs. Everything was shiny and minty inside. While inspecting the small motherboard I noticed the usual suspect: a super capacitor with a reading of 5...

Re: Framemeister mini

How much is the OSSC? I've been thinking about the Framemeister for about a week, then this thread popped up :awe: I was to buy a Framemeister myself but then I heard about OSSC in shmups forum. Here is the online shop for it. https://www.videogameperfection.com/products/open-source-converter/ :awe...
