Hey, im kinda desperate. I soldered twice now, first was red, in my second attempt it went to pink (purple+blue?) i checked my solder points for ressistance, i checked for continuity and i get values everywhere for connection to the nand place. Soldering seems fine, so i don't know what stops it from working. Nand is connected to the board. Only thing i did not check is if i need to put everything together completly as i keep testing it with open chip without heatspreader and stuff.


After reading a little more i saw someone recommending to put the nand back to old place and start it regulary, it stays black so i think i shorted something?

Edit: nevermind. Core v1. All I can say is double check the nand ribbon and make sure the nand chip is connected at the other end. I've seen at least one user think that the nand cable replaces the nand chip. When it's just an in between. Another thing to check is to make sure there's no solder splashes on the chip. Pictures would still help.

Pink means it's the nand solder points.

Post some zoomed in pics with a cellphone and we can help see if anything visually looks wrong.

Desolder everything, put the nand back and make it work again.
When its working as usual without chip, try again.
Without zoomed pictures nobody can help you.

    I appreciate the convenience of emulation - but at the same time there is a feeling you get from using original hardware that's hard to match.

    I feel like consoles will always be here just less of a demand

    Next gen will probably be all portable

    Some things (like Super Famicom games) just feel right when you play them using the original hardware and a CRT

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    Nintendy is a huge example of not everyone caring about powerful specs most that do will be hardcore PC players anyway

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon
    Gift
  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display
