Re: Xplorer headache

Can you check the cable with a multitester, or asked someone do it for you? I have multi-meter somewhere...what am i checking ? Continuity between all pins? I also got my hands on Pro Action Replay CD version. The main menu states "ver 1.4 (E.M.S.)". I couldn't get it to work either, although I spe...

Re: Xplorer headache

I got this cable now http://www.cablestogo.com/product/02654/3ft-db25-m-f-serial-rs232-extension-cable . Description says all pins are connected.

Re: PSX with Component cable.

Why did the SCPH-1001 have separate audio/video outputs in addition to the standard A/V multiout?

So I finally got Xplorer, looks like a V1? And its a PAL, so I get a nice B&W video with static audio noise when its activated :clap

So anyhow, is Xplorer supposed to boot backups?

And also, any regular DB25 Male-Female cable will work to connect it to the PC ?

Re: Sony DTL-H2000 Troubleshooting, Info, Setup, Parts & Hel

Btw, would a regular analog VGA cable with PC monitor work with DTL-H2000? Or must i have special A/V cable?

Re: [Hardware Mod] 8MB in (PU-18) Retail PSX

So does changing the CPU clock affect the GPU clock as well?

TriMesh, have you looked into upgrading VRAM to 2MB? It should be feasible, because http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namco_System_11 which is based on straight PS1 hardware had 2MB.

Re: Sony DTL-H2000 Troubleshooting, Info, Setup, Parts & Hel

For the JAP pinout diagrams, what is the name of the PDF file and the CD they came from ? Among other things, I am trying to figure out what parts where included in the DTL-H2000 kit.

Gameshark v2.1 for homebrew

I found a GS 2.1 at a local pawn shop, but not sure if I can use it for anything.

Can GS 2.1 be used to upload homebrew without the CommsLink ISA card? If not, then what is the issue? Is it a software issue - or truly a hardware problem?
