Everything works on my new Darksoft Taito F3 multi except for an annoying intermittent graphics issue that only seems to occur in certain scenes (see photo from Darius Gaiden Extra). I’ve tried reseating the board and multiple cabinets. Any thoughts?
are you sure that the motherboard works well? Did you try with any original cart the same game in both original and multi?* Arcade-projects, the site where you get the most of your arcade games.

Maybe you can merge his double post. It has a photo at least.
Darksoft Taito F3 graphics tearing issue
I want to know more about the setup he is using...
This "tear" is a known issue with HD15/VGA sources and the sync clean value of the OSSC.
NOT related to the F3 in anyway if so.
Darksoft: CPS3, CPS2, F3, MVS
RGB: RECO v2, HAS v3
invzim: Jammafier v1.6b
XianXi: JNX Raiden, SC Taito Classic, SC Sega System 16/24
Frank_fjs: JAMMA Extender (Special Edition)

Sorry, here's the image:
I've downloaded the fixes for Zone D background and will apply them tonight to see if it resolves the issue...
Yes, I've tested the (now region-free) EU motherboard with an original Bubble Symphony cart which works fine. The tearing issue seems to arise in scenes like the beginning of Gekirindan and Darius Gaiden Extra where extra textures are being used for special effects, so I'm not sure if these games are doing something that Bubble Symphony doesn't....
I was able to address the audio corruption (for now) by placing the ribbon connecting the multi board to the PCB outside the chassis instead of tucking it between the PCBs. Hopefully that was the cause...
I'll let you know if the updated patches from Darksoft address the tearing as well as the Zone D background issue. Thanks!
- audio noise was unrelated to positioning of the data cable. After firmly re-mounting the Darksoft PCB on the F3 motherboard this has been resolved.
- missing Zone D background images have been resolved via patches (thanks!)
- graphics glitches in specific scenes & areas of the screen continue (see photos below). Doesn’t affect the entire screen, only specific graphic areas (see moon below).
