V4j+Messiah 2 mixing everything up. Charlie?
V4j+Messiah 2 mixing everything up. Charlie? –
perhaps charlie or someone else can help me out of my misery here.
I just recently installed my freshly arrived Messiah2 Pro V1.08 into my GH-010/Bios 030/V4 japanese PS2. I used the twisted pair lines for the clock signal (one of them connected to gnd on both sides).
Now, everything goes bogo here. ^^;
Note: When I refer to Imports here, it means "non-japanese" games, of course.
- PS1 Imports boot, but with vertical stripes (changes in brightness, even in RGB. Might this be radiation from the clock line?), and ALWAYS in interlaced mode (very annoying!)
- PS2 Japanese DVD games boot, after a long period of clicking (going to look at my laser about that)
- PS2 Imports are launched after the same amount of clicking, but after launching, the PS2 returns to the browser screen (no data), which fades out instantly and gives me the red screen of death.
- PS2 Japanese CD games boot normally. (So this is obviously a laser thing)
- PS2 Import CD games could not be tested due to lack of availability
- DVD Movies are recognized as PS2 game discs. (and don't play back)
So the PS2 is not of too much use right now. ^_^; What could be the problems? Maybe I should use thicker lines for the clk signal?
UPDATE: Forgot to mention: I am using the red enamelled copper wire for all lines except GND and 3.3V (+3V5 on Messiah PCB).
- The stripes in PS1 mode seem to be subcarrier artifacts, so I'll clean up the video signal somehow. The Interlace phenomenon remains and is still very unpleasant.
- DVD Movies work OK now.
- PS2 CD Import/Backup work perfectly.
- PS2 DVD still places me on the "no data" screen and consequentially on the Red Screen of Death. >_<

Okay, everything is resolved thus far. Boots everything OK now. BUT the Interlaced issue is still remaining. Can't there anything be done about it? If this is a 'feature' implemented by the M2 engineers, it ... well, plain sucks
