I got the SFC30 (non-PRO), and pad hacked it. This was before the Hori fight stick was available. It's a lower cost alternative if you DIY, and works great.

Re: SF2HF Graphical Glitches - Isolated to C Board

Just to be clear, I'm taking the b-21 off the cps2 A board and using it on the cps1 C board. The sprite issues currently on the A board wouldn't preclude use of the A board b-21? I.e. don't waste my time because their are sprite issues on the A board so it will just produce sprite issues on the C bo...

Re: SF2HF Graphical Glitches - Isolated to C Board

CPS2 has a new sprites system so the sprites hardware on A-01 and B-21 go unused. CPS2 still uses the CPS1 scroll layers (that's the reason why a CPS2 has these chips in it, btw). So in theory, if I have sprites issues on the cps2 A board, that is not a disqualifier for ising the b-21 out of it as ...

Re: SF2HF Graphical Glitches - Isolated to C Board

Yes I was talking of the female connectors at the C board. Well it's just to make sure the B-21 chip is innocent. lol If it isn't the only way of repair is actually replace it. Yeah that's my fear. Well, I do have a CPS2 A board that I've never gotten around to repairing...with of course similar gr...

Re: SF2HF Graphical Glitches - Isolated to C Board

I have a SF Zero CPS Changer here for repair from a fellow forum member which does exactly that and it's a issue of poor contact on the C to B board connectors. Wiggling the C board makes the issue go away. I'd suggest you try some contact cleaner and test wiggling the connectors before assuming th...

SF2HF Graphical Glitches - Isolated to C Board

I'm getting some graphical glitches on this SF2HF board. I swapped the C board from a working SF2HF, and the problems go away and the board plays great. I tried swapping the PAL chips from known good C board to questionable C board. No improvement. What's next? Is the CPS-B-21 shot? https://klovimg....

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Just for information sake, I'll stress that boards with CN9 installed have the encryption programming pins at CN2 shorted to GND. Lest you damage your arduino trying to program keys on newer boards that way. :lol: That's good to know. Using CN9 seems easier, so pretty sure that should be the defaul...

Cn7 A23 or b23 for ground. A25 or b25 for 5v. Power the board and test before connecting to arduino.

Re: WTF happened to Sega Saturn collecting

Speaking of the sega saturn, does anyone know of a proper guide with illustrations of how to bend the cart slot pins back into place? I've read several descriptions of what needs to be done, and gave it a go this weekend. I obviously did something wrong, as the saturn will now not boot unless there ...

Re: Update: Nanao MS8-26 Q533 value?

If I recall correctly from my Aero's MS8-26SG, the HOT is mounted on the side of one of the vertical metal brackets, in case that helps you find yours.

What size bolts for NAOMI mounting brackets?

I dug around in some manuals, and they clearly show the bolts that secured the game board to the motherboard, but I was unable to find what size bolt secures the metal mounting brackets to the mother board, so that the motherboard can be secured. Does anybody know? These things, in case I'm not desc...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Is it a genuine Arduino UNO you guys are using or one of those clones that can be found on eBay or Aliexpress for a couple of bucks? Could that be the reason why it doesn't quite match the specs found on Arduino's site? Mine is genuine. Purchased directly from Arduino. LCD screen purchased directly...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

copados - what is powering the arduino? Try pulling a 5V line off of CN7. If A25 and B25 should both be 5V, and A23 and B23 should both both ground. Check with your multimeter, whichever pins you don't have pulling power and grounding for the board. Unless leonardo chimes in with a better suggestion...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Have the CPS2 power the arduino and all your problems will be gone in an instant. That's probably why I have 100% success in this stuff. :awe: Having the A board connected or not doesn't matter because the system is kept held down by reset signal being asserted. If you have the A board connected yo...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

I refuse to believe that this is the only problem with this whole proccess, since I have been swapping parts, (tried with different arduino boards), and yes, I changed the p.supply (I was also using a 9v and 12v units ) also tried the A board power method and none of that worked, so something fishy...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Very well done! :D Curious about the power supply though as have never had that issue because I power my Arduino via the USB cable plugged into my PC, however you have to remember about the current draw - obviously 1.5A wasn't enough from one of your PSUs but 4A was. Here's the specs for the Uno: h...

Re: De-Suicding SSF2T USA Blue Board

Success at last! It was the MF'ing power supply powering the Arduino. :palm: Although, it really doesn't make logical sense, I will take the win. I was using a power supply rated for 7.5V DC @ 1A (1000mA), via the DC jack. It was outputting 12V DC. The Arduino is rated for 6V - 20V, but is recommend...

I will give that a try. Some more bad news, followed by some light off in the distance, finally. Pinning out a CN9 board (SF Zero 3), I managed to kill that board. :sick: But I was able to reprogram the encryption key and bring it back to life. :slowclap: So, there is some hope.
