Re: CPS3 : Hanging with error 13,23, etc...

Strange :( 13 and 23 it’s simms 3 faulty and the only one with a problem is simms 4 .. I saw error 11 maybye two times .. Apparently the second digit doesn't always indicate the bank - which was news to me I always thought the second number was the slot in error. The only way to test the simms is t...

Re: Capcom Home Arcade

Possible candidate for the "Gallery of Sh*te"....

Rip-off pricing, iffy design, average game selection - could only be worse if it was a PlayStation Classic.

Sorry for the inconvenience I don’t really knows the eBay rules but penros you are an honest guy and if the one of simms was not faulty it was a perfect transaction. ;)unfortunately sometime...

Re: CPS3 : Hanging with error 13,23, etc...

Flash memory is consumable, unfortunately. You might have to replace the chip(s) on the simm. That's what I'm beginning to think. I've had the PCB and the simms on heavy soak testing and everything else is rock-solid. What I don't understand is:- I can "Erase" the simm and it seems to erase OK (the...

FS/FT CPS3 motherboard & 2 * 64Mb simms

I have a spare CPS3 motherboard and 2 * 64Mb simms. I've tested it works with Darksoft's multi-bios if you add 4 * 128Mb in the other slots (Darksoft sells new ones for $60-$70 each) or a standard cart with the correct simm configuration. £200 + postage or swap for a working Taito Vewlix JVS card (t...

Re: CPS3 : Hanging with error 13,23, etc...

So 13/23 - points to a problem with the simm in slot-3. I've pulled the simms out one by one and put them in simm slot 8, erased, written and checksum'd them all and only one seems to have any problems (oddly it's not the one that was in slot-3). The 64Mb ones in bank 1 & 2 are Fujitsu. The 128Mb on...

CPS3 : Hanging with error 13,23, etc...

I sold a CPS3 setup on eBay and I'd soak tested it for ages - but after an evenings playing SF3:3S the buyer opened a "Item not as described" dispute saying when he tried changing games all he got was repeated error 13/23 etc... It's running Darksoft's multi-bios on a modified JoJo cart with the V4 ...

WTD : XLR-04V + pins to fit.

I need a couple of these and can't find a UK stockist.

Anyone know where I can buy some JST XLR-04V and the pins to fit them without having to buy a stupid amount (I need 10 at most).

RS-Online do the PCB mounting version but I want to make a lead with one on the end.

Re: Polycade - Founded by Tyler Bushnell, son of Nolan

Belongs in the gallery of overpriced s**t or as an April fool's gag.

You'd be better off buying a Chewlix and putting a PC inside - for the price you could buy a Vewlix and put a PC inside and still have some change for beer.

Re: New container announcement

Read my vewlix disassembly guide in the wiki. Once you remove the control panel and raise the feet you can move it around and through doors easily. Its lighter and more manouvorable than a 20" CRT woodie. The only gotchas are fastio is pretty useless until nesica is publicly supported as a multi-hdd...

Re: Sega / Vewlix CP CAD files

Had a batch of the vewlix ones made and they're slightly too wide. Bolts are in correct locations but panel could do with 1mm taking off each end. They don't fit a chewlix at current width - bolts line up ok but they don't fit into recess as 2-3mm too wide. I've confirmed by measuring against my F p...
