November 10th, 2016

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.

I took an old good shaped PCB from a “junk” original NES Controller

Modding PAL TurboGrafx

September 30th, 2016

I got some rare NOS TurboGrafx in 50Hz PAL Version.

What can we do with this kind of PC-Engine

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

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

c) Jailbarfix

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

Here we go with CAP List for a  SNESP-CPU-02

internal PC Engine UWRC Receiver

September 6th, 2016

 

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.

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 ;-)

NeoGeo AES 3-5 RGB Bypass with THS 3714

September 1st, 2016

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 :

R1,R2,R3=7,51k

R4,R5,R6=2,29k

@ 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

UWRC Capcom Power Stick Fighter MD

August 3rd, 2016

out of the 90th this Capcom Fighter Stick was a great peace of its time. I used the rarely MD Version, because I love white more as black.

Branded to capcom, nice, never seen something like this before :-)

But its time to desolder the original Capcom heart. So we didn’t get any interfear
