Re: DDP DOJ on PGM2 - er WTF?

I'd be curious to know what the picture is like compared to a normal board. I have Oriental Legend 2 on PGM2, and it's a nice little game but I always thought the picture quality was somewhat suspect compared to most of my PCBs (although Cave ones are pretty **** far from great too).

Compare a PGM2 or Cave SH3 board to the picture quality on old Capcom stuff like Black Tiger, or similar vintage titles like Robocop and the difference in image quality is like night and day, the old stuff wins hands down.

SH3 is fairly large on the horizontal. Hows the image quality if the picture is left at the correct settings for the old board, when swapped with a new one?

I think the screen sizing is the same as PGM, RGB gain too.

I might have to buy one of these - the lure of easy mode. I always liked DOJ but it was just too difficult for me.

It's easy - you ... replace the battery in the cart ;) I had an Oriental Legend 2 do it, what will happen is that it keeps telling you to power off/on after the battery test fails. What I noticed is it only settled down and stopped complaining after I'd set the time/date once the battery was replaced.

The original was (if I recall) a Panasonic CR2032 coin cell - in a battery holder, just unscrew the cart base, remove the PCB and change the battery.

What I would note is that the batteries don't last very long in these - I changed mine about a year ago I guess and it's gone flat again already, went to play it just now and it whined about the battery again - measured it with a meter - sure enough down to 1.01v now, but that was a cheap supermarket replacement brand.

Updated post btw after being irritated by mine running out again. I think I'll take some photos and make a small guide when I buy a new battery later.

So decided to buy DDP DOJ, which version should I go for? What's the price difference between them? Btw I've seen the PGA version in red and blue colors. Is there any difference?

Ok, I saw that red and blue are Taiwan and China versions, but no idea how much should I be looking to pay for one of these PGM2s.
