I can't tell all the colors look weird, how many ohms should this be?
Yellow Grey Orange
edit 11K still it's the 4 band resistor chart
Yea, looks like yellow, grey, orange at 5% (gold) but there isn't a 48k value in the E12 range. It also can't be a discoloured white (no 98k) so I will guess at a somehow very faded brown to be an 18k.
What does a multimeter tell you?
ALTHOUGH it could be an inductor at 48mH (but I thought the E12 range would be used again???)
Depends on where it is in a circuit to give an indication on what it is.
Its broken I can't get the value with a multimeter, I think it is yellow, brown, orange and gold but that the second band is hard to say.
It took a bit of cleaning to get it to this stage is was covered in its own insides. I'm hoping it acted as like a fuse when it died and that nothing else in the circuit is broken.
Krumm nicknamed this the Naka Tower
......and still lots of mods needed. Getting there.
What on earth would have planned for that Shane?
Playing Whitney Houston's full catalogue?
Do you mean that Naka Tower of awesome CD power?
Only x50 disc
Have been testing alot of old boards,so many parts to test
Yeah, the Naka Tower of cd-pron power.
Top 40 bone Jukebox. Haha no thanks
It reminds me of my 50+1 Sony CD player in the garage since it has a single drive above the SCSI multi-disc drives.
Hopefully the cops aren't after 90's console game pirates any more
Flashed bios via floppy on 7NNXP. Ha it worked Brings back memories..........
It showed up today, been messing with it this evening. Very impressed with it so far, ordered it from aliexpress which supposedly means its a knockoff but the board is open source so I guess anyone can make one.
Can't fault it so far, firmware updated without incident and its played everything I've tried so far.
Here's some pics I took: http://imgur.com/a/3jRXy
I'm honestly thinking about selling my physical games now, I have a 60hz switchless mod on my SNES and now I can just play NTSC roms there's really no point owning a PAL collection with all the stupid letterboxing and speed issues.
Also the market is ridiculous at the moment, search for "Super Metroid" on e-bay, speedrunning has made that game popular and you can't get a PAL copy for less than $110. It's ridiculous, the PAL version is the worst version to speedrun anyway and you can get a Japanese copy on e-bay for under $50. I don't understand it. Too many idiots turning their bedrooms into Nintendo museums.
Edit, also worth mentioning the aliexpress one comes with everything for $157AUD posted, includes a shell, SD card and the status leds (although you'll need to drill holes in the shell yourself to see the lol.) Meanwhile on the US sites you pay $189USD for just the card, no shell, no storage and no LEDs.
Very Interested to see how it goes. If its amazing then I might consider getting one, maybe even a Sega MD + N64 if they exist. Also due to the fact that the real cartridges these days are stoopidly expensive.
You can buy the original flash carts straight from the source. http://krikzz.com/store/
Both the ones you listed are available.
Brilliant, thanks for the write up.
Where did you get you switchless mods done? (Or did you do them yourself?)
I got it done a few years ago by a dude on Aussie Arcade but I believe this is him anyway: http://www.retrofix.com.au
TBH I don't think' its worth, if you go this route and you only want to use the flash cart I'd just buy a Jap Famicom on e-bay.
I debugged some Apple IIe games so I could patch the disk images with infinite lives cheats. It was my first time modifying an Apple IIe binary. Some of these games would be impossible without cheats.
I have a s754 Athlon 64 that works.
