not a big thing replace these 2 caps with 4,7uf/16V in SMD eg. G0805 and the jailbars are gone.
you will find them on solderside from the PC Engine Super Grafx.
3DO Consoles outputing 240i Signal but with adding a switch you can set it to 240p
It only works on 3DO consoles with the VDP536 Chip
Pin 52 progressive output (high 5V)
Pin 52 interlace output (low GND)
(red is 5V and yellow/purple leads to Pin 52)
I removed the RF-Unit and put the switch at the same position of the chanel switching
For usage power up in interlace mod (switch off) and after power on the console
switch on to activate the 240p Mode.
If you turn the console on with 240p activated (switch on) you only get a black picture.
Same when you change a disc and you close the console with 240p activated (switch on)
the case need some cleaning
progressive is sharper and more stable and not shaking anymore :-)))
Last wekk I got a great gadget called goDMD Clock. The main usage of it is to show the time, date, temp and Pinball Animations from the DMD.
This new version is build with 2 RGB-Led Array in a total resolution of 128×32 Pixel.
You can order it here (If you have trouble with the shop mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
After contact with the developer, he added image rgb support to the editor
Here you will find a package including one demofile. gridlee You only have to change variable base to your path were the package extracted
To do some animations for goDMD you have to use mame. I am using groovymame, because it can be set to output native pixel resolution of the games. So you will get a pixelperfect output for the goDMD.
start mame via commandline: groovymame -mngwrite griddle.mng griddle and do some gaming. After exit you will find a griddle.mng.
To split the griddle.mng into pictures I used a programm advmng
start it in the path where the griddle.mng via commandline: advmng.exe -x griddle.mng
After this you will get a lot of pictures like: gridlee-00000022.png (Resolution: 245×240)
With the help of irfanview (a pictureviewer) you can create a custom selection (under edit) with Width: 128 and Height: 32.
After Pressing the Button: Save and apply to image you will see a window on top of the left png.
Move it with the help of arrowkeys to the area of interest
In Top Line you see (Selection: 0,0) this marks the X,Y Position. You have to enter these values in
Under File: Batch conversion (set to PNG Output Format) and press Advanced Button: Here you can set the X-pos, Y-pos Position
Mark the amount of png you want to crop and add them
now you have a lot of cutted pictures in the right resolution
now put a animaions.properties in this folder
After this try to import it in the pin2dmd editor under animations: Load Animations
Here you can download new Fonts for the goDMD Clock ArcadeFonts_go_DMD
I got a white “dental” case and its time to make the jaguar ready for 2017
The title is something strange, but its comming from a Sega Saturn Mod years ago (the code is based on this). The Saturn reset button is used for change region and 50/60Hz.
You will need:
I removed the RF-Unit to put my “standard” DIN Connector and for adding a button instead of the chanel selector. With the help of this tiny button you can select between 50/60Hz.
(U25 Pin 11 sets the Console between 50 Hz (GND) and 60Hz (5V)
I used a US 60Hz Jaguar for modding, so you have only to solder this wire to Pin 11
(The Reset Line you will find U9 Pin 13 (GND = reset)
I removed the original LED and put instead a RGB-Led.
I set red for 60Hz and green for 50Hz.
If you find blue better, no problemo. But red/gn are the real colors of the Jaguar used in their countrys.
Its like the switchless Mod for the Sega Saturn.
a) When you push the button for a moment. The Jaguar will do a reset
b) you push and hold the button. Now the Color of the LED will toogle between green and red. When you release the button
at red -> Jaguar Resets and starts with 60Hz
at green -> Jaguar Resets and starts with 50Hz
(bigger hole for Din RGB-Connector)
(my standard Din Pinout, based on modified 5 Pin Din PC-Engine + 3 more for RGB)
Its time to add a 2nd Bios to the Jaguar.
You have to remove the original Jaguar Bios and use a DIP 32 socket.
With the help of a 29f040 FlashRom I added jagbios and BJL1.06
You need to concat the bios files:
Use: windows command: copy /B jagbios.bin + jagbios.bin + jagbios.bin + BJL106.bin 4in1bios.bin
and burn 4in1bios.bin to the 29F040 FlashRom
Today I got the NES Mini including a second Controller.
So what we have to do is to open it reversible ;-). With the help of a cutter knife and a heatgun. It opens good and here we are.
Hu after over 30 years a new NES Controller in my hands…
and look on the rear side. Graved the german adress of Nintendo
the wii/ NES Mini PCB
I took an old good shaped PCB from a “junk” original NES Controller
and it fitts like a charm
and it playes like the first day in 1986
I got some rare NOS TurboGrafx in 50Hz PAL Version.
a) Speedup and change it to 60Hz
-Exchange Osscilator X201 to 21.47727Mhz
-cut Pcz80 Pin 15
-Solder wire from Pad pin 15 to Pin 22
b) RGB bypass for best picture
I took the RGB Signal from C154 to C156 after removing the Kerkos. The wires leads directly to the Hu6260 RGB-Out
using the rgbbypass PCB
yellow wire to desoldered PIN 44 from HU6260 (C-SYNC)
I am using an old “french” pinput from the 90’th. So I have to reroute some cirquits
Cut 5 Din Via circuits and wire as shown here
red audio 2 (right), white Audio 6 left, grey 5V
yellow desoldered Pin 44 from Hudson 6260 CSYNC
exchange C137 and C133 to 4,7uf/16V
d) jap/eng switch
you need to switch 8 wires (15,16,17,19,20,21,22,23). I done it with two analog switches MC14551BCP
I used my IFU-30 Unit, so there was no need to remove the RF Unit. As I didn’t wanted some wires to the left or right side.
I put all needed connections to the rear side. Power, RGB-Out, Audio Out.
I opened the RF-box removed the orignal switch and replaced it with UWRC switch.
ground to one side and the other side of the switch to the uwrc board
thanks again to micro, for his great Idea how to make the UWRC plugable, by removing the filters.
green wire uwrc controll switch, red and black to the signal led combo I created at the upper side
blue “bigger” wires to the 7805 replacement for swiching the pce off/on
a red 5mm led and a green 5mm led dremel work and to the ventilation grid
no more heat -> replacement of the 7805
Great feature, you can power off and on the PC-Engine via holding select and Run for around 1sec. Ideal for users of everdrives. Hope this feature will find his place in all new internal receivers from micro
thanks to arcadeTV we have a optimized Version with THS 3714 for NeoGeo AES
-cut left side of the three 6,8k resistors for input rgb input of ths amplifier
-cut the left side of the three 75 ohm resistors for output to the din 8.1
-cut BF for sync output to the din 8.1
the perfect voltage divider values for bypass PCB :
@ AES 3-5 Mainboard Pin 3 Comp Video and Pin 7 C-Sync are the same on both you will get Comp. Video.
After the modification its is neogeo conform Pin3 comp. Video and Pin 7 C-Sync comming from the THS RGB Bypass PCB
For some help of solder side
