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

    The issue is everyone is working with different hardware setups. Mainly PSUs. Depending on what cab you are using it may or may not work. Depending on if you're using a super gun, it may or may not work. Then there's the availability issue. Because they keep making new versions of the scsi2sd...

    Captain Commando issue

    There are different types of CPS1 boards. Many are unprotected, some have encrypted code. The battery is a 2032 soldered to the board. The C board holds the key to decrypt the code. Basically Capcom made SF2 WW and it got bootlegged to hell and back... so then they started encrypting their...

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

    From what I remember, the green board ones don't work on blast city psu. the red board ones do. Not sure if that's related to this issue though. Also from what I remember the LED flashes on briefly during startup and then goes out. It then only pulses again on read access? On the blast city when...

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

    Google translate with the camera feature is tits. It doesn’t work on all the cps3 games because sometimes there’s an image behind the text. But for some games, signs, and random directions or instructions, it’s key.

    Reset MVC2 exp Naomi board

    those look like mask roms that say mv2, so i think it's legit? bbge seems right for serial number according to a quick google. yeah, I think he tried that but it wasn't working. also odd that it's saving settings after power off with no battery at all? I wonder if there's something else going on?

    Reset MVC2 exp Naomi board

    interesting, your battery is already removed. I'm surprised it's saving settings at all? You may be using the already unlocked chars rom? Did someone make/convert your cart or is it original?

    How to add earth ground.

    I came across this video today and it has a good explanation of VA and why it's used to rate transformers instead of watts. I didn't really understand it completely previously. It is more important when you have transformers that are multi-taps. But, I guess it makes sense to just use the one...

    [SOLVED] Help me pick an LCD monitor for my Golden Tee 2020

    Ok... so good news. I was able to find the factory settings menu on the Dynex TV that was already attached. I didn't think it could be turned on automatically, but it seems like there is a secret menu setting that allows for it! So this means that I don't need to buy a new monitor with an...

    [SOLVED] Help me pick an LCD monitor for my Golden Tee 2020

    So I need a 1080p monitor that has HDMI input and it MUST have the ability to automatically turn on when power is applied. It should be VESA mountable. The golden tees can support any size monitor but the manual recommends a 42-55" LCD. I would prefer if it doesn't have any "smart tv features"...

    New CPSIII Ultra Simms! 8 times the size of a regular SIMM

    Does it say Customer or Custom? Customer SH-2 would lead me to believe it's been replaced with a Standard SH-2. Custom SH-2 means it's original and from Capcom. Does it look like the processor has been worked on? Standard SH-2 a microprocessor that was created by Hitachi and was used in many...

    Raw Thrill's Fast & Furious Super Bikes game not booting anymore.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with reaching out to someone to see if they have some software they can share. I do agree though that it can seem shady, depending on how you go about it. Imo if you have the dongle and the game, there's nothing wrong with getting a copy of the install disc...

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

    I thought the scsi device id was supposed to be 1? I doubt that would cause it to not be able to write the flash though? I used a different version of the scsi2sd so I am not sure if all the settings are correct or not?

    Humble Greetings from NorCal

    Welcome! I would spend a lot of time reading up on the forums about arcade cabs, styles, and types. Depending on the types of games you play you might be more inclined to go with a candy cab. Or maybe you like the nostalgia factor of good ol' wood cabinets. There's lots of options, and it's hard...

    FS: CPS3 w/ 3rd Strike US Version; Original Battery, still has seal

    It is definitely more of a collector's item with the original security cart and CD. I am reasonably sure it's an upgraded NG or other earlier game because of that metal casing, but I could be wrong? There is usually a sticker right above the jamma edge that says the game the motherboard was...
