Re: Buying a new (used) PSX, recommended version?

Thank you all for your answers. Just another question, if I use an unmodified PAL PU-8 to play a NTSC game (for example, Time Crisis) with a gun and with the console connected to the TV using RGB/SCART, then I should be fine? The gun must be connected to a controller port and must also be connected ...

Re: Buying a new (used) PSX, recommended version?

What CoolerKing from Assembler Games wrote might be true for CVBS and S-Video, but it's certainly not true for RGB analog component video. The older models have a visibly sharper and cleaner image via legitimate RGB cables. Thanks. I'll probably use one of my PAL PU-8 with the newer GPUs. Now I'm o...

Re: Buying a new (used) PSX, recommended version?

Sorry if this has been answered before. I have my PSIO for almost a year now, and still haven't tried it, because of lack of time for assembly, and because I have several PS1 consoles with different motherboards and I don't know wich one I should use. So far, most people say that the older models wi...

Re: Mega CD

Does anyone know if the Mega SD is just emulating the Sega Mega CD hardware and using the MegaDrive/Genesis hardware just like a real Sega Mega CD would, or is it also emulating the MegaDrive/Genesis hardware (similar to what the RetroBit RetroGen does to play MegaDrive/Genesis games on the SNES)?

Re: Mega CD

Youre totally wrong sir. Mega sd is fpga,totally different from emulation. That you don't want to buy it cause its not cheap,ok with that,but don't say fpga and emulation is the same. Search the difference between fpga and emulation,totally different. I'm not wrong. Emulation is emulation, it doesn...

Re: Mega CD

For me, I would rather buy a RaspberryPi and a megadrive/genesis USB/wireless clone controller to play Sega Mega CD games with an emulator than to buy the Mega SD. I understand that original Sega Mega CD hardware is very expensive, but both the RaspberryPi+emulator and the Mega SD are emulators. I w...

Re: Mega CD

I understand that the Mega CD model 1 and model 2 are different and that it would be harder to create an ODE than to create a cartridge like the Mega SD that emulates the entire Mega CD, but I'm not interested in a product like the Mega SD. What I want is to keep using my Mega CD even after it's opt...

Re: Remember position on the list

I like the option to have this features, but I think there should also be an option to turn off this features in case the user doesn't want them.

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

You need to leave the 12V connected for the official PAL SCART cable to function on a PAL console. VGA is fine without. I haven't actually used a dreamcast with the normal disc so I do not have a reference for how hot these units normally get. I have left Crazy Taxi, GDEMU, 3D prinited tray, Noctua...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

I've heard that the 12V rail overheats because it's not being used, and that the problem is completely solved by doing the following mod (adding a resistor): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVKN3pQ11wM Also, because the GD-ROM is removed, airflow will not be the same. Something like a 3D printed tra...

Switchboard Minimal Instalation - just for using PSIO, don't need to use disc drive

Hi, I received my PSIO a few months ago, but still haven't had time to test it. Anyway, I have some questions about the switchboard. 1- I don't want to use the disc drive in the PS1 that I'm going to connect to PSIO. 1.1 - Is the installation of the switchboard simpler if I don't mind loosing the di...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

The drives operate at 3.3V. If you look at the GD-ROM drive before you remove it, you'll notice that it 3.3V is stamped on the GD-ROM metal housing right on top. VA1 and VA2 models (Dreamcast) used 3.3V. VA0 I believe used 5V. Thanks, I did not know that. I've been searching more about this matter ...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

You can place a resistor in the 12V rail (this works for the GDEMU and USB-GDROM), I believe it reduces the heat a little bit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVKN3pQ11wM You can also buy a DreamPSU. https://www.retropsu.com/store/product/dreampsu Or build a PicoPSU. I've been to that "flash warning...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

Both these devices were designed with the 3.3V power in mind. They will not kill your console. Thanks for shedding some light on this matter, I don't have enough knowledge and I've always been a bit worried about using these devices in my consoles. "Better safe than sorry" is what I usually tell my...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

Ok not another update request, just my 2 cents. In a few months, a friend will give me is old Dreamcast for me to "play" ;D so I've been looking into the Dreamcast modding options. This is the general idea I got: 1. IDE Reborn It requires soldering skills, cutting the Dreamcast case to fit a IDE 40...

Hi. I'm on the December orders and I'm afraid of not being home to receive the PSIO due to vacations. Can my PSIO be shipped in mid September? Thanks.
Sure, what was your order number so I can place it on hold for you?
My order number is 3342.
Thank you very much.
