Hi guys,

So I had sent a few tickets to support about the error 91 , SDR issue and I thought why don't I fix myself (risk the warranty) , after speaking to support I came to conclusion the ram is faulty and almost sent to krikzz for repair, when I realised I had some issi 6ns 54-tssop ram sitting around.... OH the dilema, I've never removed ram  as I don't own a hot air station and wondered if I could get away with it using low melting point solder ? YEP it was easy-mode. I put a line of low melting point solder enough to cover all pins left/right of the 54-tssop and proceeded to heat both sides up wet and wow it flew off after a little time.

Now the moment of truth I put new ram on again with a 35 watt 10$ iron I can't afford these ' temperature controlled soldering stations' anyway and to be honest I've never required one for SMD work... so whatever the new ISSI ram is on.



Does she boot?



Does she play?



Hopefully that damn error 91 SDR will stop plaguing me, I thought I'd sorted it a few times thinking I had fixed it by setting it to 25mhz spi as appose to 50mhz, and even trying to find dry joints.. but no the issue is random to say the least.

I'm one happy ED64 owner and I won't let this take away from what is 1) great firmware, 2) great hardware, and 3) great support. I understand that some problems occur with hardware that is out of the manufacturer/designers hands at the time because let's face it - it took weeks  to show it's true colors, different humidity/ temperature etc can surface the issue - faulty ram is hard to diagnose especially if it's tssop where it is unlikely to have been burned in by  krikzz which would take a long time to do.

Enjoying my ed64 v3.

FXPAK (SD2SNES) / Happy with my Rev.H sd2snes
« on: July 16, 2017, 01:56 AM »
I've had my  H for a week now, it's my first sd2snes, after enjoying Everdrive GBA for month or so on a 101 gba I thought I'd venture down the Snes/super famicom path and I wasn't disappointed. I ordered mine from Retrotowers (they were kind enough to ensure I got a H and it arrived in a few days!) .

I had problems installing 0.1.7e firmware for some weird reason so installed 0.1.6 and went up from there, i noticed a long-code on the screen which resembled some kind of identity code and thought i'd best leave it to do it's thing to my surprise it had upgraded the firmware and I was  rocking 0.1.7e.

I have been told by krikzz via e-mail support that NTSC consoles are more favorable choice so ordered a 1-chip japanese super famicom from ebay (s/n database and 2-3 days of scouring ). got one for about 50$ inc shipping! YAY... it's arrived in the UK and will be at my doorstep soon... in the meantime I've been playing on a PAL snes I sourced last week for PAL only games to run at 50hz... while NTSC-J console will be suffice for the NTSC USA and NTSC-J english translated. (Tested a few but I'm sure they're not running at the correct framerate on PAL).

Overall really happy with shipping time, product quality, ease of setup.

Would love to see the fx chip and sa-1 supported in the near future but appreciate the level of work that will go into that and therefor can be patient :)

Thank you for a great product Ikari and Krikzz for both the level of hard work, research, commitment to the scene and the manufacturing process, including future support of the products and your general love and interest in putting this kind of power in the hands of retro enthusiasts such as myself.

I have no regrets and every game thrown at it works a charm! and my girlfriend enjoys it too so yeah you've done well :P  we almost completed captain commando together today! ALMOST!
