probably in a hotel for iso.
Chillin'. Watchin' Netflix. Scalin' it to 240p.
poorly on base firmware.
Sounds like you need a game house. A fun house, as it were.
My "lotto fantasy" is to build an interactive museum of play.
Basically like the Strong Museum of Play in the US, but here and focused on AU&NZ.
If we're talking lottery, put it in a 747 and have Bruce Dickinson fly it around for you.
Some great ideas being aired here about the future of high res, high refresh displays, and what that means for "CRT emulation":
Targetting what 8K, 1000FPS displays could allow us to do could well be a very important thing for the future of old games, and implementing a display system that does them justice.
so my GBS8200 arrived, ebay specs say it needs 5V 2A.
RetroRGB says you need 5V 4A.
Highest Amp 5V that Jaycar sell is 3A.
anyone running one of these things in any form currently?
if so what rating are you using for PSU and have you had any particular troubles?
I'm thinking the 3A will be fine but also trying to see if I've got something kicking around the house to get started on it before I make it into Jaycar.
Far out that's a lot of juice. They're arcade amps.
You can probably get by with less for video/SCART/VGA levels I reckon.
Yeah I'm perplexed at his recommendation being DOUBLE the stock spec.
I've found a 5V 2A adapter that belongs to a component to HDMI adapter I have but it's not the right size plug.
I'll just grab a 3A from jaycar after work tomorrow I guess.
Not needed even for arcade. I've been using a random Dlink branded power brick 5A 1.2A and it has been used for both arcade CRT and Amiga RGB with nil concerns.
yeh sweet, just got it running off an old 5V 1.5A I had laying around. OK confirmed it works, will put it on the operating table later on in the week.
Good one - I also found the metal tape mod removed a lot of noise - I used aluminium tape took about ten minutes to chop it up and place it.
sweet ill give it a look.
the green RCA port on mine is red, gg china
Well this piece of shit is fucked. I ripped a trace up off the board getting the stupid fucking colour potentiometers off.
Why do I try to remove shit with a soldering iron and fail every time.
fuck this shit, anyone want to buy a butchered GBS8200 and a soldering iron? I quit.
Photo of the damage? It rather depends on how butchered!
I might be able to fix it, I just pushed all my soldering shit into a pile and threw the PCB across the table.
I figured I'd knock this over easily tonight, I should have left it until tomorrow but I was too excited to see the results.
I worked a 9hr shift today, My patience and concentration were fucked from the get go.
I know your probably in a "don't want to hear your shit, elvis" mood (totally understandable), but after one of these exact circumstances I finally got hold of a mechanical solder sucker, and it turned hour-long jobs of destruction into seconds-long jobs of happiness.
Just a cheap shit Chinese one too. Nothing against popular brands, but for the 4 desolder jobs I need to do a year, it's been a great investment.
I mean, even a really good one is a $30 tool. Totally worth it IMO.
WuZMoT - In addition to Elvis' fine suggestion, the other cheap tool for this is delsoldering braids like Gootwick - they'll suck up a tonne of molten solder like magic. $6 for a 1.5m reel at Jaycar.
Mine was a Valentine's Day present from my wife. I know right, perfect woman.
Yihua 948 was the make and model. Sit at around $150 on eBay, and worth every cent.
