  1. Hi! Are you sure about  this? Seems like a lot of trouble for you, but I really appreciate it! Let me disassemble it today or tomorrow, and I can send you a picture of the internals to see if we even need to worry about the power supply.



  2. Hey, thanks for the offer,I really appreciate it. From what I’ve seen I think it has a different internal psu too though, so I think I’ll probably need to just get a different system at some point. Bummer
  3. Do you mean first boot at all, with the SD card where I'm trying to program the cpld, or first boot when I'm trying to actually use the device? Thing is, when I looked at the manual to troubleshoot, I didn't see anything matching the 1-2-3-4-pause pattern, and the other pattern just seemed to match the no card/bad card/bad card reader. But, it does appear I have a QI console, so I guess the issue is moot
  4. Ugh, I think I may have been reading this wrong the whole time. I was thinking if it said 1981, no further investigation was needed. I read it again and mine does indeed have silver grounding fingers, so it appears it's a QI. Does it seem like I'm understanding it properly now?
  5. My start screen shows 1981, so if I’m understanding correctly I should be fine.
  6. I tried once formatting them all default (2GB or under fat, higher fat32) and then I also tried formatting the smaller ones as fat32 as well.
  7. Hello, I have been attempting to build a finalgrom99 and am running into an issue. I actually have two boards with all the components installed - the only difference is each has a different sdcard reader. Programming the atmega328p and setting the fuse bits completes with no errors. (one question about this - I am using the usbtiny on Windows 10 with avrdude. I was using the command line "avrdude -p m328p -c usbtiny -U ..." I didn't specify a port, but it communicated fine with my programmer - is that an issue?) When I turn the console on with no SD card in, the light blinks about once every second. When I start the console with the PLD file, the light stays on for maybe 5 seconds and then goes off, leading me to believe that was successful. With the AVR file, it stays on maybe two seconds and then goes off. When I turn on the console with a card with images on it, the system does not list the finalgrom as an option after startup - just choice for basic. I have tried with 5 different SD cards of various sizes and qualities, all newly formatted fat or fat32. There are several different results based on the SD card (both cartridges perform exactly the same with the corresponding SD cards). 3 cards - when I power up, the status light stays lit for less than a second and goes off. 1 card - four blinks, a pause and then repeats. 1 card - a blink about once per second. I don't see the flour blinks pattern on the troubleshooting, but am thinking that the other might indicate bad reader/card/filesystem. Does anyone have any thoughts on what might be occurring, or what other kinds of tests I can do? Thanks a lot! Patrick
  8. Thanks Ralph, that took care of it.
  9. Hi, Sorry if this is an easy problem, but no amount of searching I've done can turn up anything. xas99 has been working fine for me, but when I try to run make.py in the ti directory I get the following: > browser.a99 <2> 0218 - ! b @load ; branch to menu sender ***** Warning: Possible branch/jump optimization > --- <2> **** - ***** Warning: Unused constants: C_FF Traceback (most recent call last): File "./make.py", line 20, in <module> f.write(hex(ord(b)) + ",\n"); TypeError: ord() expected string of length 1, but int found I haven't found anything on Atariage, but from the other searching I've done it appears this has something to do with a change from the way Python 2x handles something, but I haven't been able to find any other posts about someone having this problem. What am I missing? Thanks! Patrick
