    Positive feedback for djsheep

    Ordered a full set of multi stickers. Received in the UK in about two weeks, well packed, no issues.

    Sega System 16B multi kit installation & support

    I think I've possibly got another borderline iffy EPROM. If I leave Golden Axe running in attract mode, it will eventually hang on a black screen. Which EPROM should I look at? What other games are on the same chip, just to see if they have any problems?

    replacing scsi cd-rom drive with scsi sd card adapter?

    It sometimes thinks one of the menu entries on the Neo Geo memory card manager has something to do with Cheetahs or Leopards, I forget which.

    PGM single game PCB assembly and troubleshooting

    My cheap TL866 can do them.

    In this thread we build the projects that others have shared - Sony 129x clone card for PVMs

    I finally managed to finish off and test my two BKM-129X cards, (needed to wait for the ADG1611 chips from China, Mouser shows those unavailable until November 2022!). I built both the SCART & VGA version as well as the full BNC clone. The former is great for the input support, the latter is...

    In this thread we build the projects that others have shared - Sony 129x clone card for PVMs

    This is the VGA connector I used from Mouser: https://www.mouser.co.uk/ProductDetail/806-K66X-E15S-NJVESA It sits flush against the edge of the PCB. I notice it is now out of stock, but the model number might be useful to find it elsewhere.

    Axun Workshop - SCA101 SCART SWITCHER

    I grabbed one of these at the same time as my JJCBOX in matching black/gold. Works great!

    S16 OLED selector - A challenger appears

    While I wait for the prototype PCBs to turn up, here are the current set of OLED bitmaps gathered from another thread: I've increased the canvas size to 128x64 keeping the original image centred; most of the ones originally sized to fit in 128x32 are probably fine but there's a few that I...

    R-type Leo sprite fix / case

    The original legs were badly corroded on the last M92 I picked up; the screws and bolts at either end were rusted in place. I replaced them with these which give the same stack height along with some M3 screws, washers and nuts.

    Retro Hardware Capacitors LISTS

    Thanks for maintaining these lists, I've used them to compile kits for five of my boards so far. I've just had my next bundle delivered: So if Mouser shows all of the usual Panasonic caps as out of stock, it's probably because I bought them all. Sorry, not sorry :D

    What Donor Board to use for the CPS1 Multi

    Do A boards that are originally clocked at 10 MHz run stable at 12? (This sounds similar to the DFO mod for consoles like Sega Genesis/Megadrive; a CDCE9xx chip programmed with two frequencies and selectable with a single logic pin)

    System 18 multi - 8) Kaboooooom

    I will give it a go and see what works. I've just grabbed 25 of them for not much coin, I should have them in a couple of days.

    System 18 multi - 8) Kaboooooom

    Oh, and feed the reset signal through that? That could work, it looks like the input is 5V tolerant regardless of Vcc.

    System 18 multi - 8) Kaboooooom

    Ah, PT65-503 is the same family of switch as those used on the rotary selectors so I can find the height of those easily enough. Sounds like there's plenty of power headroom, I think the maximum current draw of the ESP8266 is somewhere about 170mA but I think that's largely dependent how the...

    System 18 multi - 8) Kaboooooom

    I had a quick go at making my ESP-based selector fit the proposed header pin layout. The fact that this multi will be 3.3V already means I no longer need components like the voltage regulator and level shifter so I can shrink the PCB size a little bit. Here it is rendered with matching...
