  1. Hi CrossBow. Thanks for your inputs. I have a bunch of RGB scart cables here for other machines so I may try my luck with one of those or buy the dedicated RGB cable. My SMS is the PAL-G version for Europe by the way.
  2. Hi, I have tried with a composite cable I made a few months ago for the Dragon32 and it worked. Same pinout but I am not really satisfied with the result. Can the SMS be modded for the RGB output or is it native?
  3. Hi, I need a composite video cable for a SMS I recently pick-up as it came with aerial RF cable only. Is the pinout of this cable the same as the one for the C64/Vic20 composite DIN cable?
  4. That did the trick! Soldering a jumper wire has solved. I can connect now to the wifi and set-up the Plus Store account. I cannot really explain why there is a broken line here, I have checked the continuity and it looked fine. Bad PCB? Anyway it works that's the most important :-D. Thank you for your support, this cart is ra really nice piece of hardware :-). Let's put it in a cartridge shell now!
  5. OK I'll try and keep you posted tomorrow 🙂. Not so much time tonight to do this test.
  6. Yes a short blink more or less 1 second but then I get the "timeout" message. I have tried a complete reset of the module, disconnected the board and reconnected but no changes when I scan for networks. The SSID is visible only after enabling it from the "Manager Portal" menu and my PC can connect to it but http://192.168.4.1 will just hang on, no router menu. This module looks completely silent. I'll check with microscope of any evidence of bad solder joint of components on the module. The board is working and the continuity on the module pins are ok.
  7. I recall activity of the blue led blinking a few times. I will confirm this evening once I hook-up everything and test again 🙂
  8. Hi Al_Nafuur, Thanks I will test everything this late evening and get back hopefully with some good news 🙂
  9. Have to check this. I will let you once done but I may recall that the SSID was only available after the Manager Portal was activated in the menu. I'll confirm later.
  10. I cannot edit my posts but he can feel free to remove pics.
  11. Ok thanks good to know :-). I will give a try. Need to play a little bit with the menu and options. I am focusing on this non working wifi module at the moment.
  12. It is a PAL 2600 with a composite mod. How do I change the TV mode? The 2600 is connected via an HDMI upscaler to my PC LCD screen.
  13. I checked the continuity of the module pins and all is fine. Mmmmmmmm think really something is wrong on the module itself.
  14. Thanks Andrew that's perfect :-D. Let me grab my multimeter!
  15. I would like to check the continuity of each of the 8 pins of the module. Some are easy to spot with the visible traces on the board and some I do not really know where to check. I will check also for any bad soldering on the module components. Luckily I have a microscope and some tooling for smd components.
  16. Ok back with some more infos. The offline roms works perfectly so the board is ok. Firmware version of the wifi does not show a version number. Last try will be to connect via WPS but I am really wondering if this module is working at this stage. Any guide on how to check compatibility of this module with my wifi network? PS : starting maybe to understand. Do I need to flash the ESP8266 with a firmware or is it already programmed?

  18. I have never used those ESP8266 Wifi modules before. I do not know what is their range but normally in the room where I am the Wifi network range should be sufficient. Let me check for the firmware version and let you know. What I can try is to hook up a Wifi booster I have and increase the Wifi signal which may helps. What is weird is that the module is showing the SSID but no access to the router from any device connected to it. I will also build a TAR archive with some games binaries and check but I am pretty confident that will work.
  19. I got the DIY kit from the Webshop. I will recheck the firmware version from the menu for the Wifi module. It should be at least 1.6.2 right? I cannot even say it is a bad soldering as I checked all my solder joints under microscope and looks fine. Anyway the cart seems to work fine and gives access to menu functions. I have tried to scan for "wifi in range" and no results are showing. Also weird as there are at least two good wifi signal in range here and used by the PC. I will try to flash a TAR archive to memory and check if the board is working.
  20. Hi Al_Nafuur. Yes, I have tried http://192.168.4.1 from the top address bar of the browser. Tried with Opera, Edge and Chrome both Windows and MacOSX but no luck. I just get a "this site is unavailable" page. It is weird because the SSID Plucart+ is visible and I am connected to it.
  21. Hi guys. I have my Pluscart mounted and ready for first set-up. I want to connect with my PC to the router menu of the Pluscart as per the instructions. From the Wifi Menu I select "Configure Wifi Portal" then I can see the pluscart wifi SSID showing on my PC. Connect to it but then when I want to open the 192.168.4.1 nothing happens and cannot get to the router menu. Have tried multiple different browser and tried both from Windows 10 and Mac OSX but nothing the menu won't open. What should I do?
  22. Hi Robin, Any chance to order one of these babies? 🙂
  23. Hi, I am located in Europe so wondering if there is any chance to buy it here :-). Thanks for the link anyway.
  24. Hi, What is the status of this UnoCart project? Is the pcb still available assembled or in a kit?
  25. That did the trick 🙂 I have finally the package.hex built Packaging Bootloader and cart firmware: package.hex head -n -1 ../finalgrom.hex | cat - bootload.hex > package.hex head: illegal line count -- -1 bootload.elf : section size addr .data 12 8388864 .text 4136 28672 .bss 173 8388876 .comment 17 0 .note.gnu.avr.deviceinfo 64 0 .debug_aranges 296 0 .debug_info 8549 0 .debug_abbrev 3421 0 .debug_line 10417 0 .debug_frame 892 0 .debug_str 1757 0 .debug_loc 5864 0 .debug_ranges 456 0 Total 36054 Mac-mini-de-RICCARDO-4:boot riccardorepetto$ Thanks a lot for your help InfiniteTape much appreciated !
