  1. I just posted clear red and blue for pre order here: https://www.game-tech.us/product/saturn-case/ Not sure if the case maker wants to do another run of smoke, but I keep asking him to... Purple and clear are still available as well, but limited qts.
  2. If this does happen, what is the fix?
  3. Please don't read in to this that i'm angry or combative, i'm not, mistakes were made, i'm just trying to get through this... I can't make people come back to me first for help, they know how to contact me, there's a contact page on my site, but yes please tell them to contact me. No I don't visit the FB or dicord regularly, sorry can only do so much... Oh and no my boards were gold fingered not HASL. I think the owners Vec was just dirty and left marks, but it cleaned off. I had the order in around Dec 16th, so yes before the warning posted on github, but yes I was aware of it before I shipped. I just still think it's not the whole story... I keep thinking about all the things i'm seeing that can't be explained by the solder mask. Ok first the cart detection issue didn't come up at all, that I know of, until I did the FW update, all 100 of the boards i prog'd and tested never failed to detect, and i wiggled each during final boot, which you'd think would show a solder mask issue, all booted fine. Both my Vec and the customers Vec showed the roms crashing and not booting issue and both showed it fixed after fw update. Are there other complaints i'm not hearing about, like not detecting, on the FB and discord?
  4. Also seeing this in changelog: - Made the contacts on the edge connector thinner (1.52mm) and made sure they were spaced properly (2.54mm). Maybe they are too thin now? How wide are the original contact pads? I also noted obvious line in the contacts made from the console's fingers, all were on the contact pads, none were out on the solder mask...
  5. Nope pin 32 isn't connected to anything on the vextreme....
  6. I sold all the 100 I had made, which BTW were made before any solder mask warnings were put out, but i've only had one returned with roms crashing or not booting. For this one berzerk would crash during play and pole position would not start. I was able to recreate the issue, cleaned the cart, and my console, and issues persisted. I updated it's firmware to v.23 and that fixed those issues totally! Solder mask was not cut back. Now the only known issue seems to be cart detection, sometimes his console will not know the vextreme cart is there and will boot straight to built in game. I could see this still being a solder mask issue, but not on all pins, could it be just pin 32 of the cart?
  7. Or swap between a set of ntsc and pal cpu/ppu chips in your console, no need to mess with the crystal if you aren't using composite video output and only hdmi since the hi-def nes kit supplies the necessary clock signal to the cpu/ppu.
  8. I asked Kev about them a few weeks ago and the hold up of course is his time. He still has to design the 'shell' that will surround at least the bottom of the pcb to open the mini's doors so they don't scratch or catch the pcb.
  9. I'm trying to get Simius to let me handle pre orders and shipping etc through my website store: https://www.game-tech.us/shop/ I've got all the kinks worked out after doing about 800+ hi-def nes kit sales!
  10. Pre-oders sale page is live, has been all day and looks to be holding up no problems so far. https://www.game-tech.us/product/hi-def-nes/
  11. Hi-Def NES update - kits ready for sale Sunday July 3rd
  12. We both talk about it, you just have to watch a vid on my channel or his that is only the one of us in it and you'll tell us apart I guess.
  13. I pestered Kev in to making it happen and helped where I could, mostly on the installation end of the mod. I am selling the kit for him so he can concentrate on other projects like the zimba3k etc. My brand is not on the kit anywhere other than in the list of ppl he thanks, but yeah I did a lot of vids about it. Kevtris did some too...
  14. Fixed, my name has little to do with it. lol
