Graphical Glitches and CD games no booting

08 Jul 2020, 23:48

PCEngine model: Coregrafx II

Power Supply: Original NEC and 3rd party, both with step down converter.

Video cable: Genesis 2 SCART cable.

SD card brand: Toshiba, Samsung EVO.

Region modded?: No mods

SSDS3 revision 1, 2 or B?: Revision B

In Game Trigger enabled in the Options menu? : Turned off

Any other details specific to your setup: wired up to OSSC and OLED TV

Problem or Issue: Games with graphical glitches (Bonkers III, Galaga 90'), others function fine (Pac Land). CD games won't pass "press run" screen.

I received today my new SD System 3 bought from Stone Age Gamer. Sadly, i can't boot any CD game (tested Rondo of Blood, and Buster Bros.) Yellow led stays put. Also, some pce engine games are heavily glitched (Bonk III - Bonk's Big Adventure is a mess, almost unplayable).

Please help, i waited a lot for this device to use my PC engine. Thanks!

Remove the SSDS3 and check ALL of the pins on the back of your PCE. There is a good chance that some are either corroded or bent or pushed in.

I would try to clean them all and reseat the SSDS3 back onto it. We have seen this in the past and it was due to a poor connection.

Port thoroughly cleaned, same results. I ordered a SanDisk Mobile Extreme Micro SDXC 64 GB to test if with another SD card works.

Here is a video of the behaviour trying to run Rondo of Blood:



Here a screenshot that how looks Bonker

This is very similar to behavior I am seeing, but in my case it's only ACD games (so far) weird

Do you have access to another TG16 or PCE to test?

Unfortunately I do not have access to another PC Engine, where I live this console was never sold. However, I have just ordered original Youkai Douchuuki game, because on the SSDS3 it shows a glitch that prevents any progress in the game. If the Hu card works, we will rule it out the console as the problem.

I suggest reading the pinned threads and then starting a new thread.
