    I've disconnected the 2.2K pull-down resistor via the jumper and it indeed fixed the PSG volume level. Thanks, Ace! I am a little confused by the ASIC YM3438 schematic, though, because it shows the...

    Huh, the attachments work fine here. I'll just put the images up on Imgur:

    I'm happy to report that I have received Helder's Mega Amp 2.0 board today. It has a very nice design and was easy to install. It's saved me a bunch of time and frustration in trying to get my own...

    I'd try this if I had the tools/experience to desolder ICs safely. I've always found it difficult to fully get all solder out of the vias with solder wick and a desolder pump. If it's really gonna...

    I'm actually using a Mega EverDrive X3 for Alien Soldier and MW4. I initially thought the MED X3 was causing problems, but it runs flawlessly on another console I have. Sonic 3 got those graphical...

    I have not swapped out the CPU and I'm fairly certain it's never been swapped out, because the solder applied looked like it came right out of the factory. In any case, I've soldered the CPU from...

    So despite what I said earlier, I think there's a possibility of an IC somewhere being damaged. I get every game to boot now, but the system seems unstable after more testing. Some games run without...

    Alright, so I got two problems out of three fixed. All games I try properly run now. Certain games not booting was fixed by re flowing all the pins on the CPU and the cartridge slot, while the...

    Oops, my bad. The terminology is a bit confusing, haha. In any case, I would have to rewire C-Sync to the usual C-Sync pin then with the cap and resistor? Since the RGB cable I have taps into where...

    I see, thanks for the info. Can you get C-Sync out of the Mega Drive RGB at all with the stock video encoder? I hear that Sync on Composite is noisy and I'd rather avoid it if possible, but if...

    So I've reflowed all the pins on the CPU and cartridge slot and got all games I throw at it to run now. However, another issue has cropped up where sometimes the audio slows down drastically, almost...

    It's probably not the region lock-out since I am testing PAL games on a PAL machine. Sonic Spinball and Thunder Force IV work fine and are games with lock-out, while Mickey Mania and Golden Axe 1...
  13. Various Hardware Problems With Mega Drive 1

    I've recently picked up a VA6 Mega Drive model 1 (as is, no testing) for a few bucks that is in near flawless condition from the outside, but unfortunately half of the system doesn't work properly.

    Thanks, I'm glad you enjoy the format of the videos. Such in-depth videos don't seem very accessible, so whenever I hear from people they like them, I become more...

    And perhaps what people on Sega-16 would be most interested in, a video on the very original Sonic the Hedgehog.

    Meh, I just find X1's level design kind of boring. It just feels simple and empty. Maybe the developers were still learning how to design levels for the new mechanics. X2's and X3's level design are...

    Forcing is perhaps not the correct word he used, but we as humans definitely perceive things differently based on branding and imaging. There is nothing wrong with liking a game and I've said this...

    Yeah, I really don't think people would like this game nearly as much or at all if it wasn't related to Sonic and the Sega 32X. I feel a similar scenario happened with Pulseman, being that it's from...

    Appreciate all the words and support you've given over time, man. I'll eventually get there and it's a good thing I want to make the videos myself, first and foremost. :D
