Probably most people wouldn't notice this because they run it in a supergun situation, however I wired up an entire cab with sound, marquee, CRT and everything so some stuff like that shows or sticks out pretty good.
One thing I noticed last night when I was tinkering with some stuff is that the 120VAC draw on the Sun power supply ramps waaaaaay up when booting Atomiswave games to the point that sometimes it makes the marquee flicker and you can hear the fans ramp way up. Most prominently it shows when I loaded Sushi Bar. It does not really seem to do this with any of the Naomi games. This means the power demand from the Naomi is super high during this. It seems to calm down after the game is loaded.
The future of ST-V rests upon our work and your work
While I have never tested the voltages when loading Atomiswave games, I run my setup in a regular jamma cab and have never noticed any power dip in the lights or anything else...
Isn't the marquee running on mains directly ? If starting the SUN pulls the voltage that much down I would check the caps on that SUN.
Visual inspection of the inside of the Sun PSU everything looked good, but I didnt put a meter on all of the components.-My Stuff-

Firstly thanks for the converted games, I've got them running happily on Reicast. However I've been trying to change the language of the games to English which I know can be done in service mode. I don't have a service button but just keep the start button on my controller pressed and this enters service mode but then I can't move around or select any options. Pressing "Start" even briefly exits service mode. has anyone been able to change options using Reicast? Any help or pointers would be appreciated.
