Yes that is a good cap please consider to extend the leads as you will have the coil in the way that is not the case on my motherboard.
1. Is the bridging of the pins on the cartridge still recommended and if so does it have any downside at all for any AES revision, or did a firmware update make that fix obsolete?
2. Do you think the high end 2200 capacitor mentioned above would make a positive difference compared to a newly installed one bought from Console 5?
3. Do the per game dip settings actually do anything? I haven't been able to get them to work and didn't know if that was still a planned firmware thing or I was just doing something wrong.
My firmware revision is 0x0491
firmware build is 0xa512
top file build is 0x50e0
menu build date Nov 22, 2019 <-- Are all those still the latest / a combo that should work well together?
Attached is a picture of one of the graphical issues. It's repeatable in certain sections of certain games. Little lines appearing in various places of the screen continuously. In this moment it's right below his hair. Honestly I could probably play forever like it is but since the first couple things I tried didn't fix it, now I'm just curious and figured it might be helpful to someone else too.
My console's in USA AES mode by the way. I forgot to mention I've also checked the voltage with the cart running using the method described above and I got a steady 5.12 volts. That's normal right?
Excellent, thanks for all the answers. I'll solder those pins tomorrow and then just get back to playing games. Like I said, I'm really enjoying it and the issues are minor to me. I just wanted to make sure I had my system set up for the best possible outcome.This is a problem with the cart and UNIBIOS, If I'm not mistaken. Changing it for a Stock BIOS should fix the issue. If not, we'll try to have a look in future releases. The best I can offer you now is to roll back to previous FW.
