    Fixing a Neo Geo MVS

    Your not an idiot for trying a new psu. We all make obvious mistakes at times, i once stripped a pc down to its core parts without checking the kettle lead. Enjoy the CMVS they are a great machine.

    Neo Geo Mini

    well that video killed my preorder stone dead. After he finished destroying the video quality of the thing (on tv) i turned it off and wonder if SNK will ever give us what we really want.

    I think its getting to the point where if you intend to have a retro machine collection then basic soldering is becoming a must. I can do most myself except the more complicated troubleshooting and surface mounted caps still seem to hate me. Push though caps are easy enough. Try watching a guy called gadgetuk on youtube, hes pretty good and hes covered loads of old machines that need fixing

    Nope not at all. To know you have to open it up, and look in using those pics provided as a guide(thanks LM). With the machines i opened only 1 had no leakage at all and the worst one had made it to about a quarter of the board. On one, i even had 3 large capacitors on the right side of the board bulging and had to replace those. Btw i opened up 7 consoles when i posted the first post. i do love my OG xbox

    Xbox Appreciation Thread

    Just to say that all you who have OG xboxs in the cupboard you had best check them out as the clock cap has started leaking in them. I opened up three of my machines today and all had leakage of varying degrees across the motherboard. You dont have to solder new caps in (not sure about the last 1.6 versions) just rip them out. I desoldered them personally. Plenty of videos on Youtube Softmod users have to read up a bit more apprentley.

    Amiga Appreciation Thread

    yeah got one for my cd32. cost about 70 quid for the riser card and board. Not bad for 8mb ram + ide and the ability to use my normal amiga rgb leads now. Would like someone to make a 3d case for it though. oh, ps2 keyboard adapter on the riser card so keyboard games can be played

    Does rock n roll racing have problems with certain version snes units. I have a pal cart and it would work fine through my adapter with my famicom but will not play ball with my pal unit?

    Neo Geo Appreciation Thread

    All the corner posts were machined out and i had video and power working. Also i had mapped out the solder points underneath for the joystick ports. Unfortunately continually screwing and unscrewing the posts led to 1 of them stripping a thread. I contacted Lions and he sent me some new corner posts with metal inserts. That is the point the project stalled as i was waiting for them to arrive. I will resume it at xmas as i have a couple of weeks off. I didnt think the 1c and 1f had the same coverplates tbh Have you contacted him directly to ask for parts as i know hes been making parts recently for other systems?

    Neo Geo Appreciation Thread

    Dont be afraid of the 1B and 1C motherboard as adding a unibios is a lot easier with turfmastas neobiosmasta. The latest version also includes a memory card built in. You do need to remove the soldered bios chip though, which is exceptionally easy with a cheapo heatgun

    Neo Geo Appreciation Thread

    I cant remember when i got mine sometime around the mid to late 2000's. I see the MotW mvs carts go for a fair bit now and i wonder if all them get sacced. Also there always seem to be lots of manuals and inserts from Spain on ebay nowadays.

    Atari Lynx Appreciation Thread

    I've got gadgetuk's preview software installed on mine and it seems ok. But i really do hate the 8.3 filing system. Still it can only get better and it works as it is, so thumbs up to the retrohq guys

    Picade - anyone got one?

    Its a nice piece of kit plus you have the fun of building it from scratch. The joystick is very nice and comparable to sanwas and seimtsu or however you spell it. You wont have any problems doing your QC's The Pi screws to the back of the door, but you can leave it hanging. Its heavy enough unless you are pretty violent with it. there are big rubber feet underneath which hold it in place pretty well. You dont notice the size of the screen once you start playing.

    PSN code of conduct breach

    I got warned for swearing even though these two kids who had messed around all the way through a a strike on destiny. At the final boss i just sat down and watched them die each time. I'd pick them up then sit down again. Eventually i got a party request so i joined and they kept moaning at me and i just said "you pair have been f**king around through the whole strike and here we are an hour later still trying to finish it" That got me a slap down, but reporting some strange bloke who kept sending me this these weird pics, got the abuse of the report function warning as well
  25. If its an Xecuter 2 chip i remember the D0 wire had usually come off when mine did that.
