    InfiniKey-CPS1

    Fixed my glitching (vertical lines in some background tiles) Varth (world version so no suicide battery) with the qsound infinikey + c-board from suicided three wonders. Works perfectly! THANK YOU!!! (Sadly couldn't revive three wonders. The game used to work fine, but it suicided year or two...

    InfiniKey-CPS1

    I have a spare CPS1 InfiniKey Q-Type kit - can I use it as a "normal" CPS1 Infinikey? Is the q-type c-board pin compatible with a "normal one" and if I choose (for example) dip switches for "KDx", will they work on the "Q-type" even when "KDx" is not listed on the Q-Type PCB? The thing is that...

    Numan Athletics corroded, dead & graphics glitches

    Yeah, that mb3773 looked pretty bad so I reflowed it. About that reset switch, I guess you're right, but that's not for me: my very strict religion prohibits me from owning cars with back seats, using emulators for playing games, playing retro games on non-crt displays and using non-official...

    Numan Athletics corroded, dead & graphics glitches

    Short version: check the via to the right of c5 as the leaky cap can destroy it. Long version: Numan Athletics runs on Namco NA-2 hardware meaning that it has super leaky SMD caps that will corrode the board. Exactly that had happened, so first thing was to remove all the caps and replace them...

    Dancing Eyes Namco System 11 caps

    What a weird division, layout-wise. The expansion pcb smds' connections didn't look too good so I reflowed them. Lo and behold, the game now works 100%! Currently "stress testing" it in my bench... it seems to be perfect. Weird that the connections were bad, considering that the expansion pcb...

    Dancing Eyes Namco System 11 caps

    Knowing basically NOTHING about System 11 hardware, here comes a hasty and stupid question: Just out of curiosity I just swapped the rom board from Dancing Eyes to (a fully working) Xevious 3D/G and the game does boot up but after the "This game is for use exclusively in japan"-message I get...

    Dancing Eyes Namco System 11 caps

    My Xevious 3D/G and Soul Edge are very deep in the storage but I guess I'll dig them out at some point if I can't get it running. Thanks for the info about the caps being filters! And thank you rewrite for linking to the photos, they were exactly what I was after!

    Dancing Eyes Namco System 11 caps

    Hi! I have a Namco System 11 Dancing Eyes pcb but the weird thing is that the top PCB is missing some SMD capacitors. I can see on the pads that there used to be capacitors (smd leg -sized grooves in the solder on the pads) but I have no idea of their values. Can someone who owns the same game...
