    Namco Time Crisis 3 turning off monitor after incerted coin

    It might be an issue with the dvd drive, perhaps replacing the dvd drive on the system might work. Also, you may want to check if the disc isn’t in bad condition as well.

    How to make Wangan Midnight/R actually work.

    I’m actually kinda curious to know if it’s possible to make reproduction RAM cards. I’m actually interested as I do have a Namco System 246 driving pcb and one of the extra 32MB RAM cards I bought has died, which means I can’t play Wangan Midnight. A 64 MB version would be nice to have! :)

    Secondary memory card requirements (Soul Caliber 2 etc).

    Interesting, so that means if you erase all the conquest data (delete everything on the system 2X6 test menu) from a card and use it on a different dongle; it will work? Hope you understand my question though lol! I wish I kept my second SC2 dongles a little bit longer so I can test this theory...

    Crisis Zone + 246 games IR led replacement tests - Work in progress

    @subjec2change I totally agree with you! For arcade enthusiasts and/or people who want to get into the hobby, a punch list of what pieces are needed will absolutely be nice. I will definitely make a video and a post on how to setup all these Namco gun games for home use. Once you get the hang...

    Crisis Zone + 246 games IR led replacement tests - Work in progress

    That’s awesome dude! What a find! I did manage to reverse-engineer the IR gun pcb and both my THT and SMD prototypes work absolutely wonderful! However, my first prototypes are for the Namco/Named handguns. I will make one for the Crisis Zone gun. I was also able to pick up a NOS Crisis Zone...

    Namco System 256 Multi Build?

    Yes, it is in fact right here:https://www.arcade-projects.com/threads/namco-2x6-pi-multi-selector.17220/ Works for both the 246 and 256. :D You will need some additional hardware and software though.

    What can I do with a Namco System 246 Driving pcb?

    I have some other ideas I would also like to try out, especially trying to use that V320 STR (B) pcb. I got a broken V257 STR pcb and I’ll take off that ROM it has (RRV1) and solder it on. It should be interesting. Heck, it might help someone in the near future who wants to do the exact same...

    What can I do with a Namco System 246 Driving pcb?

    I actually found my flux while packing things and went ahead and removed both RAM chips off the card using my hot air station. This was extremely daunting for me as this is the first time I actually tried to remove SMD ICs. This RAM card was inexpensive but it’s still a rare piece. I did...

    What can I do with a Namco System 246 Driving pcb?

    Well, reflowing it revived it for a bit until it freezes on the demo mode for BR3. One or both of the RAM chips on the RAM card have gone bad. Luckily the other RAM card that came stock with the PCB is good. I will order some flux once I get the whole moving to a new place situation “situated”...

    What can I do with a Namco System 246 Driving pcb?

    First thing first, I’ll reflow the ram card and see what happens.

    What can I do with a Namco System 246 Driving pcb?

    I checked it with bloody roar 3 (with the multi) as I put away the rest of my games into storage at the moment. BR3 has a RAM check and I was able to see which pcb was bad. As for fixing it, I do have a hot air station and a coupe of 246 B motherboards I can pull the RAM off of. Hopefully I can...
