New Release Sony PlayStation X-Reset 750X Quick Solder Flex PCB Mod

The original and world’s best PlayStation reset mod gets a new addition.

The X-Reset 750X Quick Solder Flex PCB reset mod for PU-22 SCPH-750X revision Sony PlayStation consoles.

This design follows my original wiring diagrams for the reset mod but removes the need for using wires which makes the install more reliable, quicker to do, cleaner, and more aesthetically pleasing. You also don’t need to remove unnecessary parts of the console or have wires permanently connecting parts of a console that should not be permanently connected.

This brings the X-Reset line of mod kits to three versions to perfectly compliment an X-Station or PSIO install.

  • X-Reset 100X single wire quick solder board for PU-8
  • X-Reset 550X no wire quick solder board for PU-18
  • X-Reset 750X no wire quick solder flex PCB for PU-22

New Release Sega Master System 2 FM Sound Module Adapter

New mod released for the Sega Master System model 2. The FM Sound Module Adapter.

The Japanese Sega Master System is capable of playing back both the PSG (Programmable Sound Generator) and FM (Frequency Modulation) audio that is programmed into some games because the consoles contains both the SN76489 PSG chip and the YM2413 FM chip. US and European consoles only contain the PSG chip which means they can not play back the FM audio.

This was fixed when Tim Worthington created the FM sound module which is a device that plugs into the external port of a Sega Master System model 1 to allow the FM sound contained in some game cartridges to finally be played on US and European consoles.

Tim Worthington’s Sega Master System FM Sound Module can be found here https://etim.net.au/shop/shop.php?crn=202&rn=538&action=show_detail

The SEGA Master System model 2 however, does not have an external port in which to plug the FM sound module so there is no easy way of getting FM sound to play on this model.

That is until now.

This adapter adds a faux external port back to the SMS2 so the FM Sound Module can be plugged in. It makes all the same connections from the cartridge port to the FM Sound Module as would be made on a model 1 Master System.

New Release Sega 32X Auto Hertz Switchless Region Mod Quick Solder Boards

Today I release my auto hertz switchless region quick solder board mod kits for the Sega 32X.

I have been the only seller of 32X auto region mods since I made the first boarded version of Ikari_01’s auto region code that was released in 2012. There was very little interest in this mod for a long time and it went relatively unknown outside of a few specific modding forums until I brought it to wider attention with my very simple but perfectly formed mod kit released in 2019.

Now I have evolved this design to what I consider its final form.

The 32X auto hertz switchless region mod is now available as a single-wire quick solder board and a no-wire quick solder board.

What does it do?

For those not in the know. This little mod allows the 32X to auto sync its video rate to a Mega Drive.

How to set up an SD Card with Rmenu for Rhea / Phoebe Sega Saturn ODE

Rhea and Phoebe are Optical Drive Emulators for the Sega Saturn. They replace the optical disc drive with an SD Card reader which allows the loading of game images. Rhea and Phoebe do not come with a menu to load games, instead the devices rely on a button which when pressed cycles through the games one by one. Luckily a menu was created by a third party to allow a more straight forward way of selecting a game image. This guide will show how to set up an SD Card with game images and install the RMenu interface.
