Re: Konami Windy II Beeping Sound / No Video

That's very interesting re: the dag-earth wire and sync signal. Here's a video of the sounds my Windy 2 is making. It does the constant beeping and a "turning over" sound that I wouldn't exactly describe as "clicking". https://youtu.be/aWdiC59oLxE I was told this is flyback squeal and a bad HOT. I p...

Re: Konami Windy II Beeping Sound / No Video

Thanks guys, I'll get the degauss cable connected then - appreciate the pic of where it should go. One of the other guys with this issue already confirmed all of his cables are connected and he is still getting the same beeping behavior from the chassis and no video. Here's a video he posted: https:...

Konami Windy II Beeping Sound / No Video

Hey everyone! I just received a Windy 2 as part of a group buy and so far haven't had luck getting video output on the monitor. I've checked and confirmed I'm getting proper voltage output from the PSU and my Naomi boots normally. No matter which VGA cable I use (there are three - 2 connected to bac...

Re: Is the Makvision chassis compatible with Blast City Nanao Tube?

Are the 2930 and 2933 chassis as difficult to repair as the 2931?

Re: leonardoliveira & Idc's clean decrypted roms

I just tried the Hispanic and Brazil region sets for Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha (sfz2alhdl.zip and sfz2albdl.zip) and couldn't get them to boot (pink screen).

The Asia set however is working just fine (sfz2aldl.zip). Just a heads up!

Re: I have to pick, Astro or Blast City?

I have both and like both. They are very similar and realistically both nice. here's my take: Blast Pros: much better design functionally, removable CP, better design to rotate Mon, tri Rez, Cons: monitors are known failures, monitors have convergence issues, ugly design with the big stupid marquee...

Isn't the 2932 the same curvature as 2930/2931/2933/2934?
No. I made the mistake of assuming that once, and experienced the practical result myself. Bezel doesn't fit and it's visibly curvier.
Interesting, TIL!

Re: You've Got Grail!?? AKA The Speculate Wildly Thread

Some Cave games are considered 'doable' by many 'novice' players like myself. Futari BL and Futari 1.5 for example can be done in less than a month for sure. Same with Batrider (Raizing) Normal mode.

Re: Pink Sweets Suicide Club

That POP looks custom/unofficial IMO. From everything i"m seeing it is a hack, but who knows - could have been done by (ex) Cave staff.

The mystery sort of makes it fun. Would be cool to see this somehow released for Exa.

CRT Monitor High Voltage Issue

I picked up a cheap 2040u CRT monitor the other day and it "works" but has an issue where periodically it will make a "snap" sound and the picture will zoom out and back in, returning to normal. Sometimes this affects brightness temporarily as well. It seems like a possible issue somewhere with the ...

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

I was curious what that would go for being PCB only and a short auction. My guess is someone made a private offer to the seller.
