would be cool considering that the original broadband access through cable companies owe it's start to sega making all the cable companies clean up their lines to run sega channel which in turn paved the way for broadband internet when it came out soon after.
Wow, I didn't know Sega was instrumfavorited' ental in paving the way for the internet. Do you have a link to any information about this? I could Google it myself but I figure you might have an 'article' already. Thanks  :)

Sounds like the PS2 laser could be losing ability, which is quite common...assuming everything you've stated is indeed correct. Or, as goombakid stated, the modchip isn't being activated correctly, or possibly the wiring of the modchip is no longer connected properly.

My tip to you is to re-word your question so we can understand you better, and possibly offer you a solution.  :)

There's that dude on assembler games, I think his username is buffalowing, you can buy a 3d printed cover for your ted from his store for fairly cheap.
$19.50 US dollars before shipping.

Near to day when NES N8 will be released (End of this moth)
Krikzz, could you release the new version now please? :)

At first, I was a bit confused because the schematic he provides in the first link there (the argentine one) shows one 75ohm resistor on each line off from the video encoder, but in his photos there are two resistors on each wire. But apparently, two 150ohm resistors in parallel is the same as one 75ohm resistor. I learned something new today. I have no idea, however, whether there is some advantage to doing it this way, or if he just had a bunch of 150ohm resistors laying around and no 75's. In the youtube vids and the sega-16 page, the mod is done with a single 75 on each line.
There are three reasons why someone might use 2 (or more) resistors in parallel/series, instead of a single resistance value.

- one, to construct a non-standard value.
**this is probably the most likely reason for the installation you saw. 75 ohms is only available for resistors with a tolerance of <=5%, while resistors with a tolerance of 10% or higher are cheaper in cost. F.Y.I., If a resistor has four bands, with the fourth band being the color silver, it's a 10% resistor. If a resistor has five bands, it's a 10% resistor when the fifth band is the color silver.

- two, to spread heat (a.k.a. Watts) over multiple components, instead of torching :o one.

- three, the circuit designer is making a voltage divider.

What is the logic behind removing the "smite" option, but keeping a negative karma count krikzz?
I don't personally care if smiting is removed, but does it not make more sense to remove the fact that it ever existed? Maybe my thinking is flawed, but I could strongly debate my point. I have smited and have been smited, but I smited posts that screamed "I'm an idiot" or "I'm ignorant" or my favorite "I'm an expert and know everything, but I have very little knowledge to back up my strong statements....and Mommy didn't hold me enough as a child." There is definitely a place in this world for the almighty smite button. I'm going to make one and put it next to my computer (like in the Staples commercials, if you live in the US, you know what I mean) so as to help with the inevitable withdrawals I'm sure to suffer when someone's post fits the criteria mentioned above.  :)

It looks really nice, especially in comparison to my boring cartridge. You have inspired me to do something about my old SD2SNES. I pledge to update the cartridge when ikari01 actually makes an update to expand currently unplayable SuperFX games. I'm thinking maybe 2015-2016? There doesn't seem to be any urgency, or updates, for that matter  ???

I'm glad this question was asked because I have wondered myself why it was there...I thought it might be an issue with the SD card. However, it's nice to know that that it's simply an indication of the MegaKey Software mode.  :)

Yes!! Btw, do the carts have labels on them?
Good question! My guess is NO though, if this flashcart follows the trend of krikzz's other early flashcart sales, which never came with a sticker.  ???

« on: April 04, 2013, 10:19 PM » <-----  Go here and look at 32X album DVD2VCD.  :)

reprep, I have the 32X to MegaDrive adapter cable (it's a nice one too from gametrog) and the standard power-cord. Thank you for offering the information regarding the power-cord being usable without a "converter." I honestly had no idea and told dvd2vcd he probably needed to use one.  :)

thanks jimmy....
The cost to send the SNES PowerPak to the USA, by Royal Mail AirMail, is £5.54-£7.50 (padded envelope or box respectively). I'm certain of this amount because I just checked website for the shipping rates. Were you aware the shipping price was that low?

I have built up a trust in you, and I hope you have done the same for me, so do we really need to have signed for delivery with tracking yada, yada, yada...which just drives up costs? I'm sure you're aware that our Counties have a great relationship, so shipping times between us are actually quick. For instance, I have sent packages to the UK region on three different occasions and all have arrived in 6-9 days (that's pretty speedy!). I would even send your package first, if that's a concern, in fact, I insist. I have overseas buyers that left me great feedback here, saying how fast and professional I truly am.

I see you are on this website almost daily, so I don't believe you'd want to damage your reputation. I'm only stating this because I wouldn't make an offer, such as the one I just offered you, to just anyone (ship first without signing). Did you see I'm selling my EZ-Flash II GBA cards (These flashcards have a RealTimeClock, unlike the EZ Flash IV cards)? Or maybe, I have something else you'd be interested in! I wish we could at least talk, and not directly on the board (out of respect), but you have no PM ability on this website because of your account profile settings...and you haven't listed an e-mail either. I feel we should work out a deal...and I'd really like to own the SNES PowerPak. What do you say?  :D
