    Glad you're back, but will be sad to see you go after this run. Definitely looking forward to hearing back from you.

    FS: CPS-3 Full Set of Original SIMMs

    I'm going to wait and see if they sell together. If not I can part them out, but @GeeDee has dibs on 2 of the 128s. If you or someone else wants to purchase the 2x 64 SIMMs as well, then I can do so now.

    FS: CPS-3 Full Set of Original SIMMs

    Replaced my original Capcom SIMMs with Ultras, so these are for sale. I'd prefer to sell these as a set, but if they don't go in the next few weeks I can part them out. $290 (includes shipping to North America, USPS Priority unless requested otherwise). If parting out becomes necessary...

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    I tried this, and even got it to say it succeeded and verified, but it didn't actually write anything (still had the old v1 bios screen showing).

    @mathewbeall got me all sorted out with the bios flashing, ultra simms are now fully operational! So awesome, and thanks for the huge help!

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    Well that would certainly fall under "fundamental things I'm not understanding"! I was tempted to try the User Defined option in the software, but I held off because I was under the impression this programmer was specifically recommended for the CPS3 kit. I may have misunderstood that it was...

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    Ok now I know I'm not crazy. Or at least not understanding something much more intrinsic to this process. I tried the SMT-NOR adapter instead of the one with the clamping cradle thing. Soldered, checked every connection for continuity and bridges, and placed the mysterious jumpers in the same...

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    I really wish I knew what I am doing wrong. I refuse to believe this is this hard. I've been wicking and reseating for hours but every time I hit Detect, I just get the same "unknown" errors. I even checked continuity and from what I can tell, the adaptor pads and chip pins are lined up properly...

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    Ok I'm just bad at soldering I guess. I reflowed a suspect joint at one of the pins and am at least back where I started! Those programmer adapters must just be extremely picky, I'll have to give it another go.

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    There are jumper settings, but I'm unclear on the labeling and haven't found much documentation for what they do. Here's what they look like.

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    Thanks, I'll do that. Is there a good source for them? I'm seeing many variations out there Would this be the appropriate replacement? It has a different dash number, 70 instead of 12. http://www.buyicnow.com/it.php?i=1117 FUJITSU MBM29F400TA-70PFTN If there's a better place to get them...

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    I thought I got them very clean, took an xacto knife and very carefully scraped them. However, I think I screwed this up worse than I initially thought. I decided to reinstall the chip in the cart just to verify I didn't damage it (maybe by overheating it when removing?) and sadly I instantly...

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    I finally got around to setting up the ProMan and desoldering my bios chip, but I'm having difficulty getting started and was hoping someone who's used these before could help. I'm using the NOR TSOP48 adapter with the 29F400 chip, When I load up their software and click Detect, I get error...

    K C Game sale

    What a toxic way of conducting business. You could do the right thing and make everyone happy, but instead you choose to do the wrong thing and help exactly nobody. You may want to consider listening to some constructive criticism, rather than blind greed.

    CPS III Bios and CD Releases

    Has anyone had any luck ordering a TL86 plus proman? I've had 2 AliExpress sellers cancel on me now. I wish there was a less scummy place to buy those.

    New CPS3 Simms! 8 times the size of a regular SIMM

    Just took the plunge with @HighScoreSaves ! Thanks @Darksoft ! I have a Darksoft Repro Cart with SuperBios/Standard SH2 (same one from this sale thread) that I got from @Derick2k . From the sound of it, I need to send the cartridge to be reprogrammed, as I don't have a programmer. Is that...

    Positive feedback for djsheep

    Bought a tang for my blast city coin door and djsheep sent it fast and cheap across the Pacific. Thanks a lot, it's perfect!

    GS Containers: New listings, Vewlix DIA, PRas 3, Rhythm, etc.

    whoa Densha de Go HD!? Which one? The big booth, or that newer "compact" version? Or is this a different game than the 2017 one. I'm so jelly!
