Got Mario's partner today.
Welcome to the club
Are these things hacked? I mean can you put other games on? Like SNES stuff?
I saw a hacked one for sale the other day. Same process as SMB35. So not for the faint hearted
Yes and no as lovely as they are the IC and board are seperate when it comes to the USB-C so you have to solder in terms of hacks and if you do you want to add more memory as it's pretty lackluster so in nintendo's benefit of them cheaping out it's in their benefit but the zelda one would be the one you'd want to do it to and you'd have a gameboy advance level G&W
Thx Triz, interesting video
Had a nice week away, and came home to a nicely stuffed mailbox.
- Keyboard controller (to assist with 286 troubleshooting)
- Diagnostic card
- Necroware Gameport adapter
- New fan for the NAS
- New ESP wifi module to replace the one I cooked in my GBS-Control
I got a new cab on Sunday and the Darksoft CPS1 multi on Monday:
Been putting the multi through its paces this week, pretty impressed with it!
that looks very nice (so does the cab), can you tell us more about it please
you know where what why'd you go for that one etc
Yeah sure man!
So what is it?
-It's a replacement B board for a CPS1 board set that allows you to play every CPS1 and CPS1.5 game with 100% original and unaltered code.
-You need a working A board and a specific model C board to run this.
-It has all the additional hardware on board (Q sound) to support the CPS1.5 games (Punisher, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Warriors of Fate and Slam Masters)
What are the major drawbacks?
-You can't easily access the DIP switches - there's a kit coming to let you relocate them but for now you need to remove some parts to access them
-CPS1 has 2 different speeds of A boards, 10 and 12MHz. So for it to play 100% original you'd need to mate the kit to the right speed A board. Apparently a kit is coming that lets you switch between 2 crystals.
-Its expensive (like over $1k but keep in mind that its still cheaper than a single CPS1.5 game like Punisher or C&D)
-The early adopters get an original Q sound chip because they had a cache of originals from somewhere but eventually you'll need to source your own or use an FPGA implementation of Q sound.
Do you really need one when MiSTer runs CPS1?
-Honestly? Probably not unless you really want to play around with original hardware. People do what they do in this hobby, don't kink shame
Love MiSTer & love OG hardware too
No shame here man, that's a great bit of kit
Cheers for the info, damn jelly on that setup
Bought this towards the end of last year and finally got it today… It’s a Gun Bullet (point blank 1) cabinet from Japan
100% certified cool, I'm lovin' that.
They were also the funnest to play.
Today I scored this schwoit AF 20" Sharp TV for $150. It was advertised as having SCART input, which I assumed would be an after-market modification (and fine by me), but it looks like the socket might be stock. The cut out is too smooth and nicely finished to be cut after the panel was moulded. Overall, the unit can use a clean-up, and I'll pop the rear casing off to dust the internals, but otherwise it's in excellent shape. No cracks, dings, or major scratches.
I've had no luck finding much information about this model. Coincidentally, for some years my family's main TV was also from this series -- same brand and size, but a lower spec model: RF-only input, mono sound, and a simpler remote control.
Going to have a bit of fun with this board... world's first native Sata 3 supported chipset - SB850. Marry them up with my Phenom II 905e & have some OC fun in win10!
Kinda retro, kinda not. The name is at the very least ....
Need a hint ?
Going out for dinner, but will unpack further once back home
nice mate, were you one of the backers?
4 of these badboys arrived today…
