Re: Naomi dimm upgrade GDs

[Which brings me to the question if there's a way to downgrade from 4.02 to 4.01 (or even further down), or is it a one way street? Yes, downgrade is possible by netbooting a hex edited firmware update so it thinks it's installing "4.03". The actual firmware binary is unmodified, it's just the inst...

Re: Xbox One

They had Deathsmiles and 2x but no sign of the other Cave games, which is a bit of a shame. Interesting thought regarding Deathsmiles 2X... The disc is Japan only, or the game is download only in the U.S., completely unavailable to European Xbox 360 consoles due to region restrictions. As the Xbox ...

Re: Darksoft's CPS2 Multikit Tech Support Thread (No Killing B-Boards!)

Ugh, not looking forward to removing my board with those long pins and mailing it, but I do want the auto reset firmware. Hopefully the programmer is cheap enough and easy to use where I can just do this myself. Pretty certain that whatever condition the pins on your board are in when it arrives wi...

Re: Attempting to Pheonix Capcom Slam Masters, trouble with HN27C4096G-12

Do you have the 16-bit adapter with a pin header with a jumper on it next to the capacitor? If so, remove the jumper so the two pins are open. If there is no pin header, carefully remove the capacitor entirely.

Re: cps2 volume resets when powered off for a while

This issue might be related to the low volume audio issue mentioned above by VectorGlow, just manifesting itself in a different manner. On the A-board PCB, there are two Toshiba chips. They control the audio volume and seem to be very sensitive to conductive dust. You should clean the dust off thoro...

Keystone holders in CPS2 boards are a bad idea.

Re: leonardoliveira & Idc's clean decrypted roms

I'm having some problems reviving a Puzzloop 2. When the game boots I get an "OK" on all 4 memory check items and then just sits there, never going into the game.

Re: What's it worth?

Okay, so I'm possibly looking to procure DoDonPachi DaiFukkatsu.

How much should I be looking to spend? Bare board or kit is okay.
