Re: UniROM 0.2 [new menu, nocash unlock, fastboot]

Caetla has an inbuilt facility to launch EXEs from the memorycard too. Not sure if its as good as what Shendo coded but it always worked well for me

Re: UniROM 0.2 [new menu, nocash unlock, fastboot]

I upgraded my Xplorer to UniROM and just wanted to say what a cracking piece of work it is!


Last time I used cheats with Caetla I a 99% sure they are stored on a memory card. The plaintext stuff is converted using one of the caetla tools which you upload to the memorycard.

Re: PC Comms Link alternative?

All parts other than PCB are available on eBay, or check your local electronics supplier if you have one. Only thing you would need making up are the PCBs

Re: PC Comms Link alternative?

Look under projects/worknlogs there is a USB solution for this. Alternatively there is the freewing interface you can build to use a parallel port.

I have one of the original datel cards but I would advise against using one as they don't work on modern operating systems.

Re: CommLinkUSB

I'd love a decent dev board hanging off the back of a cart so could do code upload over ethernet or WiFi and doing away with cables altogether. Something like a raspberry pi or Edison board would be cool, would be like a ps1 tool almost :-) I've been experimenting with an esp8266 board on the serial...

Re: CommLinkUSB

Thanks Greg. These boards are very cheap, around £4 so would cut down the cost of making these adaptedlrs quite a bit, as the teensy and adafruit boards are around £17 here in the UK. I have the other parts in the mail so will be able to test it quite quickly. Look forward to giving it a whirl. Thanks

Re: CommLinkUSB

Hi Greg Thanks for the reply, I believe this is the schematic for the board I have. http://www.psxdev.net/forum/download/file.php?id=638 Looking at it PE6 isnt used. PB0, PB1 and PB2 are available. PD0 through to PD7 are also available with the exception of PD5 which is wired up as a Tx LED. It also...

Re: CommLinkUSB

Fantastic work, I have been wanting a USB solution for years :-) Just have a quick question, Its probably no, but will ask anyway.. I already have a few ATMEGA AT32U4 based boards lying around, they go under the name AT32U4 Pro Micro.. Would it be possible to use one of these in lieu of the Adafruit...

Re: PS1 RGB/S-Video cable/output type questions

If you are wanting a very good quality cable I can recommend the Monster Scart Cable. I have one, its gold plated, oxygen free copper, and very heavy duty cable. The quality is fantastic. Hard to come by nowadays though. Also there is the IXOS one as can be found on this website.. £102 is a wee bit ...

Re: [TUTORIAL] Catflap and Caetla on Windows XP

PSEXE definitely doesnt work under XP, it requires direct port access which XP prohibits.

CATFLAP works okay with the old driver they originally wrote too but the CPU utilization is huge..

PSEXE only works on DOS or in a DOS shell under 95/98/ME.

Re: PSX serial

Rather than relying on the colours use a multimeter to check the connections. Set it to continuity mode to check the colours to the pins. Is ground definitely ground? I have around 20 cables from the same manufacturer and they are all different. I have used many ftdi/prolific/siliconlabs/atmega solu...

Re: SN Systems Win32 Debugger Parallel Port Dongle Crack

The yaroze isn't customised at all, other than its region free. If you have he access card and original boot CD I it will work on any standard PSX. The access card is he same as an early memory card, but with no flash memory on the PCB. The MCU is programmed differently. Someone on another site ran ...

Re: PSX with Component cable.

I have something pretty similar to that, but I would be sceptical of the seller listing that one as "official". The unit I have plugs into the AV port and also takes its power from the memory card slot. The picture quality isn't great but the main problem is the refresh rate. Most TFT monitors I plu...

Re: Adding PIO to a PSOne

I'll give this a go at the weekend. Just fancied giving it a try then when your psx USB tool gets sorted I might have a smaller machine to try it on too.

Re: Adding PIO to a PSOne

That is the way the VCD cards for the PSone and 900x series work and to they manage to pump video, so can't see why an AR cart would be any more problematic

Adding PIO to a PSOne

I have an AR cart with a broken connector that otherwise worked fine. Anyone any ideas on how easy it would be to wire this into a PSOne internally? Most of the data and address signals used are available on the BIOS ROM like the VCD internal cards used. I did give this a go a few years ago and neve...

Re: PSX Serial Cable

I take PayPal or bank transfer. Can ship to US or Canada no problem at all. Price for the standard PSXSERIAL cable to US/Canada would be 15.50UKP including shipping by Airmail (typically around 5 days) Payment by PayPal is as a gift or add 3percent to cover fees. Drop me a PM if you want to order one.
