who is THE man for CPS2 phoenix?

Post by Lordstar »

A very very nice man has got hold of a SF2X board for me. It died and I am going to need to get it phoenixed. Who is the best person to go to, to get my board sorted?

raz at http://cps2shock.retrogames.com/" is the man.

Although there may be someone in the uk that can burn you some.

some people want to get there board back to as close it its original state like me. The thought of getting an 18 in 1 is off putting to me. I personally am not put off by Phoenix as they repair a dead cart. I would not phoenix a good working cart though.

Yeah if someone can do it in the UK that would save me a bit on P&P. I can get playing some SF2 then :mrgreen:

Sure, i neither would buy such a multiboard ****.
But if a game dieds on you, at least you can reburn the romset and play on.

Raz did a great work, thats for sure.
But i think he should make this romsets no for free to everybody.

Its my understanding that the Pheonix roms and variants are freely available to download right now if you know where to go - such is the internet.

just had the reply from raz
I charge 30 euros to fix a CPS2 game so it will run suicide free permanently
(or to fix an already dead game).

The process would involve you opening the game case and sending me ROMs in
sockets 03 to 10 (all are easy to remove and in sockets). I will then
reprogram them and return to you. The return shipping price is included in
the 30 euro price which can be paid by paypal when I receive the ROMs.
can anyone beat that? :mrgreen:

Then where do you stop? Theres nothing I can do to stop people buying **** Chinese bootlegs if they want to. But if someone starts selling Phoenix ROMs they flashed themelves at the expense of a pilar of the community on here I can do something about that.

Personally I don't see a difference between the bootlegs or the phoenix roms self flashed - net affect is the same.

You can prevent people selling the boots (or providing links) on here just the same as you can stop people selling phoenix roms.

As an aside, how would people offering to flash the roms for free get on? ;>
