Where to buy CPS3 Darksoft multi board?

Post by Tofa » January 15th, 2020, 9:37 am

Looking to acquire one later this year. As far as I'm aware there isn't a place to get these online?

You can get the multicart and the memory sticks from the developers, but you have to source the motherboard and the CDROM drive / SD card reader elsewhere.

The devs can be found here.

The drive image you can just download from the net and burn to a CD or copy to an SD card.

Empty motherboard for £300 is expensive. I sold a board for 100 euros a year or two ago.

The SIMMS (which you need six of, two 64mb and four 128mb) could set you back 50 quid each. Try to find a motherboard with at least some memory if not a fully populated one.

I was looking for one as well and had multiple offers on arcade-projects.
