    Help needed on System 16/32 dead boards

    Option 1 would be nice but it means the board has other (potentially harder to fix) problems. Option 2 would be nice because I could replace the 68000 for an FD module but then, why is the 68000 there in the first place? Either way it's a gamble and this boards are from a local seller who's...

    Help needed on System 16/32 dead boards

    Hey guys, I came across this 2 boards which are dead, but more than that, they don't exactly match pictures I find in google for this titles. I'll describe each one and I'll be grateful about any input you might have. The boards are not mine, so I can't dump the roms and check, so pictures will...

    Hello, I'm after a Rad Mobile deluxe cab for sale in great condition (powers on and does the movement test) but unfortunately the main board is dead. I've been told a power surge took the board. I'm now wondering what options I have if I get the game in terms of converting another system32...

    Can I convert System Multi 32 --> Regular System 32 game?

    So, was the question ever answered? A friend of mine owns both a Rad Mobile and Outrunners cabs. Rad Mobile PCB died after a power surge, so we are wondering if we could make Outrunners into Rad Mobile, since it is the deluxe cab with movement which is more valuable and fun to him.

    How to identify if CPS2 has been converted

    Awesome info thank you! I have a board with all Q-Sound roms original (no window) but all graphics ROMS with windows, so this is a conversion I assume? I take not all conversions need the Q-Sound ROMS replaced? I can post pictures later when I get home. EDIT: Sorry I'm not familiar with the...

    How to identify if CPS2 has been converted

    Hey guys, So there is this vendor where I live who's offering me CPS2 in all sort of state, original, phoenix and conversions.

    Oscilloscope for beginner question

    I recently got a few dead boards for free, there's a 1 lost MVS board, a Tekken 3 a Kaneko board and a few others. Some turn on, some don't give any sign of life. I know near to nothing about PCB repairs, but I definitely want to learn. I'm a programmer so I'm comfortable with logic, math...

    Sega naomi netboot help

    You should not need a gateway, mine doesn't have it. I'm assuming you are connecting the pi to hdmi or any monitor and keyboard by usb? I would troubleshoot the ethernet port on the pi by connecting the pi to your computer with the network cable, and trying to ping the pi or ping your pc from...

    Sega naomi netboot help

    You don't, I think that part does not apply. I just set the IP and that is enough. You should connect to the PI using ssh and ping the naomi from there, it's easier to troubleshoot too. Download PUTTY client from here https://www.putty.org/ Connect to the PI wireless hotspot Connect to the PI...
