Re: your latest purchase

Yeah, and thanks to a complete lack of copy protection it's easy to play all-time classics like Keio and Lunar!

I've heard about the fuse, it's apparently extremely common and relatively easy to fix.

Re: your latest purchase

I got a Sega CD and a 32X over the weekend. Now I can really play with Sega power.

Re: your latest purchase

I know of a modchip called the Phantom that's still in production but I don't believe it's region-free. I'd love to add a region-free BIOS too but then I'd have to find someone who can remove and replace SMD components...

A Sega Saturn!

I'm hoping I can mod it for JP games and homebrew and stuff.

Re: Indigo2 Doesn't Turn On After PSU Swap

Okay, plugged the black and yellow wire cable into the little board on the side of the PSU and still nothing. :(

I guess I have to go after this eBay seller for money now, great...

Re: Indigo2 Doesn't Turn On After PSU Swap

I have the connector plugged into the side, yes. I made sure to do that before I powered it on, and then I made sure it was connected afterwards.

Indigo2 Doesn't Turn On After PSU Swap

My Indigo2 (teal R4400, non-Extreme graphics) had a weak PSU that wasn't letting it boot properly. I decided to upgrade to an IMPACT PSU so I could add IMPACT graphics in the future. However, after installing the "new" PSU, the system won't turn on at all. Was I sold a bad PSU or is there ...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I put Windows 10 on a NetBurst machine tonight. Masochist. I'd rather use a PIII to a Netburst machine any day simply because the latter at least consumes power in accordance with it's performance. A Netburst just sucks power and will sit there crunching it for longer than necessary. A G4S at 1.5GH...

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

I might as well add in extra power capacity, even if I don't end up using it. It's hard to have a PSU that's too powerful. :P

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

Ah, I didn't know Impact PSUs had a blue power cable! That helps a lot, thank you.

I might as well get an Impact PSU, unless they're significantly more expensive.

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

I figured out what my Indigo2 needs is not a graphics board, but a power supply...what's the part number(s) for teal Indigo2 power supplies? Found some PSUs on eBay but don't know if they're for R4x00 or R10k systems.
