Dreamcast Custom case.
If you ever do add DCHDMI support for a future revision, make sure the GDEmu boards are from the real deal and not a Chinese clone as some of them have the incorrect crystal on the G1 bus
That's what I was thinking.
The interconnect was initially super hard to push in back in January and you can see from the screenshot that it's not fully straight. Pulling it out is tougher than the CN9 connector.
This is carrying on from my previous attempt back in January.
I got a new soldering station with a thinner iron which did made those tiny circles a piece of cake.
However, I am still getting a pink screen issue. The screen goes black when changing game and the LCD device is fully functional...
Gotcha, I have been using this which is a tad too big for the contacts I am trying to solder. I do have a desoldering tool to remove old solder and will think about purchasing a more precise soldering iron and flux later this month after sorting out my room.
I'm a speedrunner...
Hey everyone, it has been a while since my last post but I am curious about one thing. The power supply unit, obviously they were meant to be inside arcade cabinets/desktop pc units but has anyone designed/built/ordered an enclosure for the MWP-606 models that makes it safer to be used for...
I'll pass on the glue gun.
Would a multimeter help me figure out which wire is properly connected to the gold point or not? I won't be able to do much about until next weekend when I should have my hands on a good paste flux.
Yes I do tin my wires.
It definitely does help out. I use a flux core solder for this. Unless you are using a different kind of flux such as paste (I'll double check if I have any) or soldering liquid flux.
My method was to slightly heat up the gold pads so that you can get a small dab of solder, I also tin the wire which makes the last bit doable by placing the soldered wire next to the soldered spot from earlier, you get the idea what happens next.
You could say it was a mixture of precise...
I can say that my solder attempt needs a bit of an improvement, the good news is that it just needs a bit more over the wire.
if right most is CN9 #1 then from right to left it's
Empty = CN9 #1
Blue = CN9 #2
Blue b = CN9 #3
Red = CN9 #4
Red b = CN9 #5
Empty = CN9 #6
Ok, now I can see the LCD screen properly. Selecting a MAME rom, does the Flash Writing and then the extra Key Writing afterwards and says "Currently Playing: Alien VS Predator". The screen is still pink.
So there is a possible loose connection somewhere.
