    Cps3 simm socket replacement

    Yes, that'd be of great help for those "Simm error" problems, i suppose.

    WTB: CPS3 complete motherboard

    Hello guys, I want to buy a CPS-III kit. Any games would do, the goal is to play Third Strike. As CPS-III kits can now be upgraded to DS superbios, i'm quite open on this aspect. But, of course, if it's a genuine 3S rev 512, or a DS Superbios, that would clearly match my demand, by the way...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    I'm glad to see those motherboards working again once back at home ! I was worried these parts may had unfixable or unknown issues... Good to know, thx. what i know now is that i really need to : - have a test set-up with a supergun, - have a random test board (a soccer game from the late 80's...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Glad to see this thread, at the very least, solved someone's problem. Did not notice there was a marketplace down there, and people selling CPS3 parts. Should really have a look to find a new, working, kit.

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Sadly, i'd do the same statement... As we see, we can understand a simple issue like the sync issue at the beginning of the post. but when a motherboard is bad, with mess-screens, how can you know if it's the board itself, or the SIMM, one or several ? Is there a catalog somewhere repertoring...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    By a common agreement with the seller, it's gonna be a stop, return and refund. It's okay for everyone but not without a pinch of sadness.

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    What happened next... ? Well, it does NOT look good. === The seller sent me another mobo, with extreme care this time, for replacement. And i've tested it. I plug the cart, the simms respecting their localization, and the cd reader. And i had this (mobo 2 with JoJo1 Suicided Cart)...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Hello everyone and thanks again for the help. <3 I'm still around with my faulty CPS-III but I'm waiting for a supergun set-up to do some more tests. I think it would be smarter to stop testing directly on the Astro City MS8 and get some hardware to make it on a old CRT... I hope it will get...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Be safe, i won't get close to that board with anything hot. Or maybe a red hot kitchen fork would do the trick ?

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Thanks for that share, benime. 1/ Am i looking for a continuity or a voltage and do i have to do it plugged on the jamma ? It seems to be an heavy task with very little pins, and working on both sides of the board... 2/ Pins 15 and 16 of the SSU are these ones (the ones soldered of course) ...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    I'm really not an expert, but it doesn't seem my motherboard looks that way. Here the pictures : === About sync adjustment ; the sync's fine on cps2. In this case, concerning the Sync adjustement, i've been full to the left, and back to the right, with H Hold and V Hold both, and clearly...

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Tested with CPS2 and everything's fine. I'll test pushin hard, pushing soft, not pushing at all with the second cart. thx for helping ! edit : i've just switched back to cps2, backtrack with the sync adjustements, and everything is back to normal. that's a good point, so far.

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    "adjusting your monitor sync pot from the chassis" Thank you. of course... i was thinking too close to the mobo. i'm on MS8-29FSG, monitor sync can be done with which pots ? V-Hold, H-Hold ?

    CPS-III issue & Panic Attack !

    Hi everyone, I've just received a CPS3 motherboard with a game cart known as dead : JoJo's Venture. The board is in very good shape in my opinion, no trace of rust and even the jamma connector shows no sign of excessive plug/unplug usage. But I don'k know if eveything's okay, and for that...

    Hi there ! (Warner, France)

    At this point, 2021, we can be sure MvC2 is a USA-specific game, as UMvC3, which became the main event at EVO during his last years before Inifinite (and if we don't look at AgeoJoe the year he slayed all mvc3 american players). No doubt on that, MvC2 had its biggest success in USA, and was...

    Hi there ! (Warner, France)
