10/31/2023: Localization News - Dead of the Brain 1!

No, NOT a trick, a Halloween treat! Presenting the Dead of the Brain 1 English patch by David Shadoff for the DEAD last official PC Engine CD game published by NEC before exiting the console biz in 1999! I helped edit/betatest and it's also a game I actually finished in 2023, yaaay! Shubibiman also did a French localization. github.com/dshadoff/DeadoftheBrain

He's actually the one who re-capped my Duo 6 years ago.  I dropped him a message on here but hadn't heard back.  I guess I know why now.  Thanks for your help.
#2
I have a Turbo Duo where the FMV's on CD games are slow or freeze.  I assume the laser needs to be replaced?  If so, is there someone that can replace the laser and regrease the gears, spindle, etc.?  Thanks.

Turbo Duo is now good as new.  Kith Courage recapped it for me and I have had no issues so far.  Thanks a lot!

Quote from: Keith Courage on 04/12/2017, 12:41 AMI have a good quality cable I can sell you for $10 shipped. Just send me a PM if you want one. Don't buy on ebay. Most of the AV cables made on there don't have the ground wired correctly in which case the video ends up looking slightly blurred.
I'll try your advice about putting alcohol on he pins and inserting in and out.  if that doesn't fix it, I'll pop it open and look at the board.  Nothing out of the ordinary there I'll hit you up for a cable.  Thanks guys for all your help.
Well, alcohol didn't do the trick.  I guess I'll crack it open and take a look.

Reseating the cable or wiggling the cable doesn't seem to fix it any more.  I looked at my Turbo Grafx cable and it is different so I guess I'll go to Ebay for a cable to see if that is the problem. :(  Do any of you guys know of a website other than Ebay to buy this from?  Thanks.

Quote from: Keith Courage on 04/08/2017, 01:15 AMMost  likely it's the caps but odd that it changed when you unplugged and re plugged in your Av cable. Maybe the AV jack needs to be cleaned(put some rubbing alcohol on the Av cable then insert a few times). Also, it could be a short in your Av cable. If yours is original then good chance it could be going bad.

however, if your audio is working fine at one moment and then stops without bumping your AV cable then most likely capacitors are the problem.
If I unplug the AV or wiggle than the audio sometimes comes back but this only fixes it about 5% of the time.  Last night I played Neutopia for two and half hours and had no issues.  It must have been my lucky day...  I bought the Duo from the original owner over 10 years ago so I assume it is the original cord.  I do have a Turbo Grafx-16 also.  If that cable fit in a Turbo Duo I will give that a shot and see what happens.

I felt this was similar enough to my issue that it wasn't worth creating a new thread.  I have a Turbo Duo that plays fine and sound fine but after playing awhile I get a buzzing sound and than eventually the sound goes out.  Sometimes taking the AV cable out of the system and putting it back in fixes it, sometimes not.  If it doesn't, it "fixes" itself when I play it the next day (sound is working fine with no buzzing).  After playing awhile again the same issue with the sound, first the buzzing and than no sound.  I'm assuming it's the caps like I have been reading but wanted to get an opinions from the forum in case, by any chance, it is not.  Thanks.

Magnavox Odyssey 2 Hardware
I'm selling the following as a bundle:

Magnavox Odyssey 2 system with 2 hardwired controllers, 1 RCA to Coax adapter, 1 coax cable, and power supply (everything you need to hook up the system).  Both controllers work but controller 1 is taped on the bottom.  I think part of the bottom of the controller is open (This is the way I got it and I did not remove the tape to check).  Also, every so often the video will ghost on the TV for about 15 seconds and go back to normal.  I'm not sure if this is because I tested this on a HD TV.

The following games are included:
Alien Invaders - Plus! - Cart Only
Armored Encounter! / Sub Chase! - Complete
Baseball! - Complete
Invaders from Hyperspace! - Complete
K.C. Munchkin! - Complete
Pick Axe Pete! - Cart Only
Speedway! / Spinout! / Crypto-logic! - Complete
