After I learned from UnderTaker_2 that his section was created I thought is was the perfect opportunity to greet you all!
Some of you might recognize me from VOGONS/AmiBay so you know I really like DOS stuff.
I really like this new forum even though I have to use translation, especially the presentation threads for software and hardware - I find it very useful to be reminded about stuff and learn new ones!
ATM apart from a hardware project that is currently in summer hiatus I am messing with a system I dreamed of owning for many many years:
I started improving it (because everything can be made better) mainly with help from Tiido (because after all it's megadrive hardware and it's his area of expertise )
For now the system has been converted to proper 60hz NTSC region, PSG volume balance has been fixed and currently messing with the monitor in order to potentially improve it's 15khz mode - IF it is possible to improve that is, after all we are talking about an Amstrad system so it has just the absolute minimum components to work...
This is the monitor chassis with replaced caps/ICs and removed parts so I can check each individual resistor/diode/transistor on it - almost done!
I plan to document these mods in case someone wants to do them in the future.
Sooo keep up the great work! I hope I can make some worthy contributions to the forum.
