    Positive Feedback: Close Quarters Battle Arcade (

    Thanks! I saw this advertised on Facebook a while back, then it disappeared (because Facebook) and I could not find it again. So I followed the advice of Obi Wan, recognised that the feeling of loss was an attachment, and let the attachment pass from my life. But the force works in mysterious...

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

    I think there may be something else going on here. I was experiencing similar weirdness a while back and wrote a post about "expected behaviour" of a CPS3 board in various fail states and misconfigurations. Now I have 4 x CPS3 boards it's much easier to test this kind of stuff, but at current...

    Sony BVM owners - open source BKM10/11R clone now available

    Mainly posting this here so I don't forget later The Revision B uses tactile switches with bi-colour LED's in a very strange "2-leg" configuration - just like the Sony original These tactile switches are sometimes available but cost $5 each, and there are dozens on the board (TL1265RGQSCLR)...

    Hi from down under

    Haha, sorry, was not clear - by "on here" I meant here on arcade-projects. In NZ there is not much. Totally agree on the LCD thing - although a nice Viewlix would find a happy home in my collection :-)

    Hakko FR-206 reconditioning and restoration - project log

    Kind of a lame one, mainly posting it so I don’t try this again. I personally hate wet sponge tip cleaning, but clearly many others love it. The Hakko FR-200 iron holder comes with either a wet sponge or a brass shavings cup. The holder is some kind of cast alloy. It’s not heavy enough to be...

    Sounds like it, yes. Be aware that there are FOUR versions of the Bios in the bios zip file. For your use case (SH2=Custom, want to read from CD drive) you'll be wanting the one called UltraBIOS_for_custom_SH2_AUTOSELECT_v1.0_CD.u2 And of course you will need to burn the "custom SH2" version...
